A great experience, in a great facility. Janos is the place to stay in Xian.

Only two problems: beds were brutally hard, and the bar downstairs played the music too loud. Otherwise, I will happily stay here again. Staff was great, location was fantastic.

first off, the staff are super nice and speak English well. but the hostel is not what it looks like in the pictures. the walls are covered in writing now, and the rooms are underground. my sheets were disgustingly musty. but the worst thing was the showers. they're communal, open, dimly lit, and gross underfoot. think prison showers. this place has potential. but with underground rooms, stinky sheets and scary showers, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

The bar under our room was very noisy during the night. However the staff was very friendly, we even got to cook chinese dumplins with them. It is very nicely located and in short walking distance from the metro.

Lovely staff. Great location next to wall and close to many points of interest. Funky looking hostel. Showers are all open though, just to let you know.

In a very nice location near the south gate. The atmosphere is good and for a Chinese hostel it is pretty international. The guy speaks English fairly well, and helped me a lot by writing instructions for getting train tickets.

location is good, close to South Gate and the main attractions in Xi'AN city. Staff are helpful. However, as it is the summer time, it is a bit hot in our room, and the toilets and bathroom are not clean enough. Also, no one clean our room during our stay :S overall it is ok if you stay for a short period :)

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.
