We loved our stay and the friendly staff. Just a note for families: The two family rooms are located right above the 'Belgian', a bar that has live music until late in the weekend.

A little cold in winter, but that was because a window was left open. Over all a fabulous stay

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.
