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.
Is a good and recommendable hostel! Staff is friendly and they offer you city maps. Breakfast is not included. Had the impression that the room skipper left my bathroom more filthy than it had been before. So I decided to hang out the don't disturb shield for the rest of my stay. But to sum up a good choice ;)
Hostel was just 3 min walk from subway station and 5 min walk from bus station. Room was modern decorated.
The hostel is based in a nice area of town. The food served was good, but the lighting was so dark you could barely see and this caused headaches. My room was based on the ground floor behind the bar which was nice and quiet. But the toilet which we had to use was the main toilet in the bar area. There was work being done in the hostel one morning they were drilling then a big gush of water, workmen panicking, when i got up there was a big deep puddle in the room. opps
Really good hostel with hotel quality rooms. Helpful staff and good food and drink at the bar.
great location, staff was very helpful, free pickup service from the train station, excellent location couldnt ask for anything more than that very pleasant staying
The personal was nice (very helpful while booking tours), the hostel was clean and very well located. It felt like I was in a hotel not a hostel. In sum a great place to stay. The only but is that the common spaces are a little bit too dark
The staff were super helpful! We had issues getting train tickets and one of the girls went out of her way to help us buy them. Overall really nice place!
It is an okay Hostel. The staff has a limited English, but they are able to help you with many things anyway. The dorms are cheap and the beds are fine. On the third floor you can dry your laundry, but also sit and enjoy the sun, it was really nice. You can log on WIFI on all floors and it works fine. I did not try the restaurant located on the ground floor, but the food seemed delicious.
The staff was very willing to help by recommending trips and calling TukTuks. The room was quiet, clean, and cool. Everything we needed!
