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 hostel is very easy to find if you follow the instruction. The staff was very kind all the time we were there! The food was good in the restaurant and the tours proposed attractive ! They give us some good advice to visit (the wall in bikes was very cool )! We felt secure because the door is close and you have to ring to enter the hostel so every time somebody is wake up to open to you. The room was clean as well. It's very cheap for what we had have ! I really recommend this hostel !!

This is a great hostel, in an excellent location very near to the main tourist entrance of the Xi'an Wall. The staff are very helpful, and were more than happy to help me plan my sightseeing and also how to get to the airport by shuttle bus. There is also an excellent bar attached to the hostel, and a cafe/restaurant. My only slight complaint is that the wifi took a while to work - I think there were a lot of people trying to access it at the same time.

Hey there! Thank you so much for your review. Your support really encourage our staff to serve all the guests. Shuyuan hostel is more than a place to sleep but a place to enjoy nice western food and enjoy music at bar. Welcome to hostel next time David! Best wishes from Shuyuan Hostel!

The room stunk because of the drainage system in the bathroom. Covering the drain with a mat, as directed by the instructions in the bathroom is not enough to quell the stench. This needs to be fixed. Also, there was a dirty, scrunched up cleaning cloth left in the room. The directions from the airport to the hostel that were given by hostelworld were incorrect. It said to catch an airport shuttle bus to the bell tower but the shuttle buses no longer go there. This needs to be corrected.

Hey there, thanks for your review and your advice. The building in Shuyuan has witnessed it's 50 years history. Therefore, it's getting older. We will make bigger mat or figure out something better to fix the drainage. Meanwhile, we will have another training for the cleaning lady to improve the quality of their service. We've changed the direction at hostelworld right after we saw your review. Thank you so much for your comments again! Welcome to Shuyuan next time. Best wishes!

Awesome location right by the City Wall South Gate, staff were all very helpful, even when I was constantly asking questions. They've also got good tours to places like Terracotta Warriors, etc. if you don't wanna go there on your own. Keep being awesome, and thanks for all the help!

We stayed there for several days. The staff is very helpful und can speak English very well. The food is tasty and the hostel also has a very famous bar, which has nice atmosphere and is often very full. The room was clean and the beds were good, softer than most other Chinese beds.

Warm and helpful, the hostel really felt like home. If you do not speak Chinese, it could be difficult communicating with the cleaning staff and restaurant staff, but at the front desk everyone speaks at some English level that will be helpful to foreigners. As a westerner staying in one of the mixed rooms, I was so incredibly excited when I finally found a western toilet on the first floor, almost all bathrooms are equipped with squatters. Overall, amazing community, a great time!

The bathroom smells stink and it came through to our bedroom

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello, thank you for leaving us review. We are sorry that the bathroom bothered you. Our hostel features for the old style Chinese building, it has been a long time. So this does happen sometimes especially when it is wet outside. Now we are fixing this and make it better. Thank you for your suggestion. We are always welcome for any nice ideas to help us grow better. Best wishes from Shuyuan!

We booked a private room which was a good size and clean. The hostel was very quirky and the staff were really friendly especially the reception woman who was so helpful and always greeted us with a smile. Laundry service was good, booking tours was easy but as we went in the winter it was hard to get the numbers. Overall a good place to stay!

Shuyuan was a great option for me and my mate. We had a Twin room with private ensuite. The rooms were a decent size and kept us nice and warm during the cold wintery weather. The drain for the shower was a bit smelly, but not a spoiler! The staff were fantastic, went above and beyond to help us with whatever we needed! All in all, we had a great stay and if we are to return to Xian, we would definitely stay here again.
