It is located near Big Wild Gooth Pagode outside city wall. But there are many busses running to city centre in short time. Don´t expect much because one doesn`t pay much. Nice location and nice service. It is a typical backpacker hostel.
It has an excellent location to see Western World right next to an Ancient Wild Goose Pagoda. Moreover, the staffs are very friendly as they are the students of local Universities.
The location of the hostel is very good,but the hostel is terrible,so dirty! Istead of a window in my room there was a hole in the wall,i booked a 4 people room, and it was too small,impossible to stay there we ran away.

They never arrived for the pick up we arranged and changed 12rmb for towels. The stay was adaquete but nothing special. The location is a 20-30 minute bus to downtown, but close to the big wild goose pagoda. We switched to another hostel in xian and had a much better stay.
This was a chilled hostel, not the best for meeting other foreign people but this could have just been the time I stayed. Very helpful staff when it came to sorting onwards journey.
Located in nice area but you have to take a taxi from metro - be wary of taxi drivers trying to rip you off. Room was very small and dark. Toilet/shower facilities were not great - again very dark. Staff ok but we were not given any city maps etc when we arrived which we're used to. Busy area with plenty of bars/restaurants etc. Easy to get bus to Terracotta Warriors. All in all an ok hostel.
They missed our pick up and charge 12 Yuan for useing a towel, but other than that it was not a bad stay. Location is a 20-30 minute bus from downtown, so I would suggest getting a hostel at a better location. Some staff speak english but some do not.
