Best part of this hostel was the location. It's located 30 seconds to the closest metro stop, which you can take to Line 1 and Line 2. It was very convenient and in the middle of the city, only about 1 mile walk to the Muslim Quarter/Bell Tower or 1 stop. Breakfast in the cafe was good value for money, only 25-30 RMB for Western breakfast. Staff was helpful, maps were available as well.

very friendly, helpful staff...we truly enjoy our stay... we will come back again. highly recommended to any visitors
This was one of the best places we stayed in China. Our room was warm, clean and serviced every day! Staff were mainly friendly and very helpful. The downstairs bar was really nice too with a pool table. Only complaint would be that people were allowed to smoke in there and some rooms, despite big signs saying you can't.
Good hostel, nice location next to the metro. On walking distance of all the sights. Feels more like a hotel will hostel price. Very clean and nice rooms. Recommend.
Definitely a hostel geared towards Chinese tourists, but the staff was very helpful and I had no problems being an English-speaking tourist here.
This hostel was the best I stayed at in China. It is very clean and the facilities and furniture are new and modern. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The location is good, Walking distance to the Muslim quarter and just 3 bus stops from the railway station. Also the price is not too high. If I come to Xian again, I'll definitely stay at this hostel again.
very clean and nice rooms. showers and toilets cleaned often. wi-fi in the dorm:) staff is helpful and the lounge is great. great location and just around the corner from subway station. we would definately stay here again!
This was probably the best hostel I have ever stayed at. It was clean, the staff was professional and nice, it was a great location and had an amazing atmosphere. If I ever go back to Xian I will stay here.
Nice place. A bit hard to find the first time though, but once you know where it is its in a great spot. Friendly staff and a few of them knew proper english which is a great plus. =)
Second stay at Ancient Youth. Staff is beyond helpful: patient with giving directions, organizing tours
The location of this hostel is very good not far from the intersect of two subway lines and is within the walking distance to Muslim Quarter. Laundry is convenient and they also arrange our tickets to the Tang Dynasty performance which is one of the highlight.
nice place, good location close to subway, clean rooms, helpful stuff, a bit too dark in the bar area, fast internet, i would come again.
Good hostel, good bar/restaurant. Shower could be much cleaner! Room was good.
This place has some fairly mixed reviews, but I couldn't really fault the place. Enjoyed my stay, staff were helpful, wouldbe happy to stay again.
No hostel atmosphere ..... Is a beautiful hotel
The personal was nice (very helpful while booking tours), the hostel was clean and very well located.the tour they organized were value for money,highly recommend...
I was eeally disqppointed once a time with this hostel international affiliated hostel. Maybe it´s because they try to stick up with a very low price policy or something, so it ends up with a boring and unhelping staff. Always wondering on their phones watching videos, you always seem to disturb them. They werent able to tell me a suggestion of a restaurant, neither to how get to Huashan mountain in the good way. It s one of the main attraction of the city. The boss should look at his staff.
