Unfortunately the hostel was very hard to find, so that's how you can get there: When you are at the drum tower, go around and follow a street called beiyuanmen. At the first crossing, turn left into another crowded food street, that later turns into miaohou lu. Follow this street for about 15 minutes. Take the third alley on the right handside. You should see a big sign saying "U2". In front of it, there's the alley youth hostel. Apart from that, everything was fine.
Cool hostel but So HARD TO FIND No signs out front please have some english signage. Otherwise excellence
The hostel has a great location and the rooms are clean. However, there are only few staffs who speaks English. Luckily though, I was in a room with Chinese students who helped me with the directions to Xian tourist sites.
Nice hostel in a great location in the Muslim quarter. The staff is willing to help and the rooms are nice. Not really an international atmosphere but ideal if you want a deeper contact with local people. Overall a nice experience.
- the staff is very nice and helpful if you know what you want and don't hesitate on insisting - very nice location, bus stop within 10 minutes walk - the rooms are nice, a 8 bed dorm is splitted into 2 rooms, very nice if you are travelling in a group - too bad there are so many floors and no elevator - overall, good experience!
