This hostel had everything you needed and ticked all the boxes. Very professionally run with great staff, a friendly atmosphere and a lot of new things to try each night.
The staff is polite and helpful but a little bit cold. There are a little bit few bathroom facilities for the amount of inhabitants. But the bath is clean and good. You can dry you clothes upstairs in one of the yards. The yards are very pretty with decoration and plants. There is a party romm downstairs. But if you do not want to party it is not disturbing.
Very friendly staff. Good location. The number and cleanliness of shower space and toilet should be improved.
If you're a group and/or want to experience the really touristy side of Xi'an, this hostel is great. If your a solo traveller who wants good inside information about the city, it's history and events, don't go here. It's a nice place to sleep and hang out, but there are many better places in Xi'an. The staff also vary greatly, from friendly to ignorant. I was refused help by one guy after I told him my phone was stolen and I needed to use the internet (the hostel computers weren't working).
Had a great stay. There were issues with my train, but Chris was amazing and helped me out. Definitely would recommend this Hostel.

Only one western toilets and lack of showers.
Great location, clean and friendly atmosphere - all you could want
Front desk staff were so helpful, booking trips and arranging transport - Thank you
Great hostel with a good atmosphere! Something for every type of traveller.
Cleanlinees is marked Good rahter than excellent only because yards 1 and 2 are open to the sky and it rained while we were there, making things a bit slip[pery...
All I can say is: amazing pizza. Kidding, that aside, the hostel is in a fantastic location and is easy to find. The staff can speak good English and are really helpful. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Very happy with our stay there!
perfect location to explore the wall and streets around Muslim quarters! The tour Shuyuan organize are worth a go! Met many cool peeps from around the world :) thank you for your hospitality Shuyuan!
I did not socialize at much as I thought I would at a party hostel, however, I was pretty spent after long days of sight seeing in and around Xian. I took a private room which was fantastic. The staff were studious and helpful and the facilities including wifi, laundry, etc (and whatever else I used) were as good as anyone could ask for.
Excellent location, good rooms and a good atmosphere (with a popular, but non-intrusive bar downstairs and other nightlife within 5/10minutes walk. The hostel has a cafe which serves all sorts (despite a slightly moody cafe owner). The shower facilities are a little limited for the number of rooms, but we didn't seem to have a problem during our stay.
i enjoyed the yard, spot i like most. good place to chill out after walking around. autentic Chinese style of home. but the toilet spread bad smell many times wich is happen in all toilet in China. seems need more attention on it. other is good and okay. but please more CAREFULL and BEWARE about your things, passport, money, and other important things you bring. a lot of people come in and out easy because bar and restaurant are inside the hostel so outside guests can get inside hostel also.
Only stayed one night. But I liked it. The girls in the reception are very kind and helpful. Good location as well, next to the city wall and a 10-15 minute walk to the bell tower and muslim quarter. Huge bar underneath the hostel, didnt have time to check it out though. I would stay here again.
Charming hostel, in an ancient house with 3 beautiful courtyards where people can have a break and drink. Very well located inside the city walls, just a few meters away from the south gate. We had a double bedroom with private bathroom on the second floor of the third courtyard. It was a bit smelly, and not exceptionally clean. People at the reception speak an awesome english, which is rare in China. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

An absolutely fantastic hostel with a great Hutong vibe to it. It is very cool, the staff are very friendly and the facilities are great and cleaned regularly. There is a nice little cafe that serves some decent food but the place you want to go is Park Qin bar underneath the hostel. Live music, great atmosphere and a damn good night every night.
The location and the staff is excellent. It's very near to the Xian Great Wall, you can just walk. It's very near to the bus stop and park. The staffs are helpful. They speak English well and help me with the map and direction to the Terracota Warrior. Even, Xi Da one of the staff help me buying my train ticket out of her working time. Really appreciate it!
