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!

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!

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!
