I stayed there last winter I was travelling around China, and since my mom was planning on visiting I decide to stay here again. It is amazing how different a place may feel come winter/summer but at the same time it feels the same. I enjoy this hostel and if I could I would live there with the cat. I love the office kitty and I wanted to take him home with me. The rooms are nice, the dorms don't seem to get swept too often but thats not a big issue.

Every main attraction of the city is within walking distance. There are western and eastern style restaurants and shopping centers. The subway is close by. The hostel has activities planned on site, plus the staff is very helpful in guiding your own plans. This is the place to stay if you visit Xi'an.

This hostel has such a great feel to it. The staff were so helpful and offered a variety of tours, including ones to the Terra cotta warriors. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
One of the best hostels I stayed during my trip in China. Very comfy bed. Excellent helpful staff. Bar downstairs with happy hour prices!
This place is big and popular. It has many patios with seating space to chill out. Dorms are a bit crammed, but clean, and beds are ok. Staff is helpful and nice. Its location right next to the South Gate is very convenient. Good choice.
Great hostel in a series of beautiful courtyards in easy walking distance from the subwaystation and the sights within the Xi ´An city walls. The staff are great and very helpful. They have a laundry service that is fast and good. The restaurant offers great food, too. I would definitly stay here again. It might be a good idea to bring oropax though as it can get a bit lively in the courtyards during the late evening.
We had a very nice stay in this Hostel, everyone was friendly and helpful. Rooms and sanitaries could be better but there are clean (which is the most important). We highly recomand the Shuyuan Hostel !
Staff was very helpful and spoke English well
I loved the courtyard, the restaurant, and the bar at Shuyuan. They had live music and it was an easy place to go and chill. It was too "clubby" to socialize outside of your own friends though. The courtyard was better for that. The bathrooms were always pretty gross and there's only one western toilet. The staff was fairly knowledgeable but sometimes not helpful. The best staff member I met was a young man who was volunteering there to practice his English.
Acceptable hostel but did not really impress me. Great location, bunks a little wobbly, in summer their courtyard layout of rooms is cool but bad for winter- you would essentially be walking outside from shower facilities to your room (brr!). I don't think I would recommend a tour, better do it yourself. When I went on their Terracotta tour they had 50 people but one guide- she was great but come on that's too many people :/. Wifi only in common areas (average slowness for China haha).
This hostel was in a great location for all of the things you'd want to do in Xian. The staff were friendly and did try to help but had limited english. The corridoors are open to the elements so were stiflingly hot when we went there in august but the air conditioning was brilliant in the rooms. We had a lovely time staying here and stayed one evening in a dorm room which was clean and comfortable and one evening in a double with ensuite. The bathrooms could howevee, be cleaner.
Hostel has a great chinese design, comfortable beds and a great location next to the wall. About 90% young chinese tourists though, so if you're looking to meet fellow international backpackers, its not really the place.
Great hostel to spend a couple nights. Location is good (right next to the south wall), staff is helpful and atmosphere excellent. Dorms are nice but don't book a private room the week end because of the music live. It´s just impossible to sleep. Definitely recommended PS: free pick up at the train station was much appreciated
A very nice hostel. Located in the center of the city just inside the city wall. The staff at the reception spoke good english and were very helpful, The hostel itself is very beautiful and clean even by western standards. The dorm room was secure (keycard and lockers) and each bed had its own power socket.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The building is really cool and the staff is so fun and helpful. It is a little "westernized" in that they mainly serve western food in the restaurant (but hey! there's a restaurant in the hostel.) Their tours are totally with the money and a great way to see the sites around Xi'an for cheap. Would recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Xi'an, any age group, for any purpose.
Enjoyed my stay and I thought that the location was great! Also had a good atmosphere within the hostel with a bar underneath. Only thing I didn't like was that the area at the back was so hot with heat coming from the air conditioning.
Fantastic location, close to a lot of bus stops, the city wall and food. This is a nice place to stay if you are solo. It's nothing fancy but has a nice vibe and the bar downstairs is busy every night
All the staff was really nice and helpful. Everything in the hostel was really well organised. At arival there were some problems with AC in our room. It was solved in two minutes. Inner yards are nice to hang around and meet new people.
