After staying at some hit and miss hostels during my trip, this one was definitely a hit. Lovely atmosphere, relaxing courtyard and excellent English speaking staff. Evening activities available aswell for those wishing to socialise. Excellent food and drink plus free beer or coffee ticket on arrival. Highly recommended.

Friendly service with a bunch of energetic front desk crew. Feel very much at home with loads of nice places to visit in walking distance. Located right at the south gate at Xi'an city where you can easily catch a bus or train to connect you everywhere. The only setback will be the night club at lower ground floor. avoid...

After reading many highly positive reviews on tripadvisor I thought this hostel would be one of the best we would stay at in China... not the case. We stayed in a private double room (the booking said "King Bed" - but was a double) for two nights. Pros: Very friendly staff, excellent English Map provided (the first time we have...

One of the most strangest experience for me in China. Myself and 4 friends got booked into a room (I think it was room 306) and immediately we didn't like the room, it didn't feel right and the cleaners didn't like going into clean it which we thought was odd. We decided to change rooms and had a great time...

I was here with my tour group and I've never stayed at such a gorgeously decorated hostel. The 3 gardens are the perfect spot to sit and read a book of you wish or have a chat. The restaurant offered so many options for food and had a great atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay here and can tell why...

I would definitely recommend this hostel, nice and spacious, the room are organised around interior courtyards. Be aware the toilet is squat toilet only (but by the time you've reached Xi'an you should have got used to). The hotel is located from walking disance to the muslim quarter. If you arrive by train or plan to go to the Terracotta...

It's fine. The toilet and showering facilities are basic, not the cleanest and seemed kind of busy (I got up early). There is a restaurant and a bar there and they give you a coupon for a free drink when you arrive which is nice. Apparently the bar is very good but I didn't have time to check this out...

A very nice place, with a good atmosphere and a really friendly staff! I and my friend arrived at the train station and the staff came to take us with car. We gave us a welcome beer for free! The dormitory is clean and nice, the only fault is the bathroom with shower that is outside and it could be...

Everyones good reviews of this place are shocking. The only one I agree with is the guy who said he'd rather sleep on the street than in this place. First of all, the bar is fantastic. Great bar, great bands, great time. I highly recommend the bar. But this is a review for the hostel. Go party in the bar...
