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.
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.
I had a great time in this hostel with very nice and helpful staff ! It is close to everything you need : transport, shops, nice bars and restaurants, places to visit !
The staff is really amazing and the hostel is located in the centre point. Its very close to other attractions.
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!

Clean and staff speak good english very helpful! Please always advise there are two train stations as we missed out HPR train standing at xians main station...
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!
Really good stay in the hostel ! Well located and welcoming staff !
Stay here! Best hostel of our trip. Great location and rocking bar full of local people. Showers hot and clean.
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.
