We stayed 2 nights at Shuyuan Hostel, but I wished I stayed there for a longer time. The staff was really friendly and so helpfull. Their English was also perfect. The rooms were clean and the beds were really good. I enjoyed every moment in Shuyuan Hostel.

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 !!

Hey there, Thank you for your review. Our hostel is the very first one at northwest China. We choosed tradational building and bought old-style furniture to make guests feel like home. We were really glad to have you here and welcome to Shuyuan Hostel next time. Best wishes!


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!
