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.

Hi, thank you for taking your time to leave us review! We are really glad to know that you enjoyed your stay here at our hostel, Our bar is quite popular in Xi'an, it is a nice place to go. We wish to see you again next time. Best wishes from Shuyuan Hostel!


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!

Comfortable, clean room with a heater (important in Chinese winter!). Lovely old building just inside the City Walls. Great location -easy to get to from railway station and close to city centre sights. Staff speak some English though not great but were quite helpful.

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!
