Nice hostel. Real close to busses to reach all sights. Couple of bars next door to chill out.


Very nice stay; great location and friendly helpful staff. I stayed in the basement level so no windows but nice and cool. It is decorated to look like a traditional street, so it didn't even feel like it was underground.

Very good value for money, we also booked the pandas and the leshan/emei trip which were also correctly priced.


Jano's has an amazing staff that is knowledgeable about Xi'an and they also speak English very well. The location is in an art district right next to the ancient wall. It is a quiet hostel at day but you can try the bar next door which gives you a 15% discount when you stay at Jano's. The dorms are in a hutong style basement which can be a bit stuffy but the rooms are clean and I always felt safe. The bathroom has western toilets and 24 hour hot water showers. I would stay here again.

Excellent spacious room, a nice surprise upon arriving. Helpful staff, plenty of choices for tourists (although visit to Terracotta Warriors can be done independently at a much cheaper rate) WiFi connection could be better. Excellent Belgian bar!


The hostel is perfectly located inside the city walls with all main sites located in walking distance. Although the beds were a bit hard, we enjoyed our stay and the room with the balcony!


more light at the mens restroom would be nice and a new toilet lid.
