Thank you for your review. Sorry that bathroom and shower bothered you while you were at hostel. Hostel has been running over 10 years. We are always trying to meet needs of our guests. We will keep doing that. Best wishes from shuyuan hostel.


I could not fault this hostel! Directions were brilliant, found it without an issue. Warm arrival and introduction to the city. The map provided by the hostel was incredible, the best I've received in a hostel in China. A stones throw from one of the entrances to the city wall where you can hire bikes. Walking distance to the Muslim quarter and the Drum and bell towers. The wifi was brilliant, the layout was ideal. Met so many people. The bar downstairs was definitely one of the best in Xi'an!


Great location, clean and friendly atmosphere - all you could want

Thank you for your review Sarah! We were really glad to have you at hostel. Love to see you playing killer game with other guests. Still envy that you dont get bites from mosquitos, ha ha. Thank you again! Best wishes from Shuyuan Hostel!


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.
