Located in the heart of Xi'an city, near the airport bus drop off. This newly-opened hostel provides friendly environment and cozy accommodation to all its guests. Many famous attractions are within walking distance: Bell/Drum Tower, 14 mosques, Muslim Street and ancient City Wall. Moreover, you can easily find the buses from here to Terracotta Warrior, History Museum, and Big/Small Wild Goose Pagoda.

Around the hostel is the famous Muslim Quarter, which is packed with tiny restaurants, street food vendors, stalls for souvenirs and traditional handicrafts.

Keep going on the right side of the street in westerly direction (away from the bell tower)
Keep going for a while. At some point you'll see a very big building on your right hand side called Parkson (just a pointer so you'll know you are still going in the right direction.)

Keep going. After a while you'll see a big typical Chinese archway on your right hand side. Just next to the archway you'll see the 'Jin jang West capitol international hotel' and a second Chinese archway. This is where you turn right. (the street is called Daxuexi xiang but just turn right through the second archway because chances are there won't be a sign)
Walk the complete length of this street until you come to a T junction. You'll see a high school in front of you. (big pink building)
Turn left on the T junction and after about 100m turn right again. You'll find the hostel after about 60 meters on your left hand side.

    Nice place in the middle of Muslim quarter, maybe little bit dificult to find (better to have address written in chinese or printed map - address is 西安市莲湖区西大街城隍庙旁边大学习巷直走看到二十五中学左拐西仓南巷33号 and you can use http://map.baidu.com/ to have chinese route map). It is 10-15 minute walk from subway Sajinqiao or few minutes by ricksaw. Enjoy your trip, I can recommend this hostel.
