The service was out of this world. The staff spoke wonderful English and was willing to help us with planning our trips across the city as well as a side trip to Mount Hua. Wonderful location within walking distance to the city wall and a metro stop that will get you just about anywhere. If you go to Xi'an, you have to stay in Green Forest.

We came in a group during the Chinese New Year. I booked 3 dorm beds and 1 double suite. The staff were nice and very helpful. The dorm was ok. Beds were comfortable and the people who staying there were nice. The only problem they had was the double suite room on the 8th floor. The whole floor was incredibly smelly. We tried to change that room but the front desk told me all the rooms are fully booked that day. So we had to stay in that smelly room for the whole night. What an experience.

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this hostel and I highly recommend it. Great location and staff is very helpful and speaks great english. Overall, a great experience! ... Here are some little issues to mention tho: Coffee/food is a bit over-priced, it's chilly in the common area, and the directions to the hostel are ridiculous: "... transfer to the subway Line 2,and get off at Anyuanmen, go out at Entrance and walk 30 meters to our hostel." What direction? What floor of the building?

Loved this hostel. All you need for a relaxing temporary home in xi'an. Clean, huge rooms, excellent facilities for travelers. I would add that you can easily walk here from the train station in about 15 mins if you don't mind walking!

The common area is very nice. Not so strong wifi signal in the rooms. 50 m away from metro station, u can also walk to the city wall and ride a bike on it. Convenient location to take buses to Terracota Warriors and Hua Shan. The beds are clean, but the floor isn't so much. Also a couple of things weren't working properly in the shower room, which by the way was kind of far from our room. Overall a good place to stay

Owner Comment (Hide)
Because it is an old building, so the signal is not very good telecommunications lines, resulting network is very bad, we are ready to change suppliers, we believe that the wifi speed must be good. Similarly, we will also be covered with carpet in the hallway, easier cleaning. In short, thanks for your suggestions and praise, I wish you all the best

I'm not just being nice. This place really was excellent in every way. The staff were helpful in every way they could be, from stocking the room with tearable directions to the sights, to writing out "I am a vegetarian" in Chinese on a paper we could take to restaurants. The room was clean and cleaned everyday, and the location was no more than 30 meters from a subway station. Just don't be confused trying to find the place- their front desk is on the 4th floor! Great in every way!

Hostel is located just outside the city wall, takes around 10/15 minutes to walk into central area. Hostel facilities were always clean and beds are very comfortable. However the bar/restaurant was overpriced in my opinion. Hot and cold water was available for free which was good! Lockers were not the most secure, but apart from that a great all round hostel.

We had a really nice stay at this hostel. The staff was more than friendly and helped us a lot. Xavier showed us around some places. There are shared 2 showers and 2 toilets(clean), no idea how it will work out when it's fully booked. But as we were there it was no problem. Wifi was ok.

Thank you for your appreciations! For the lack of the facilities, especially the bathroom, we would definitely improve it in the near future, and we are looking forward to your coming back! :)

I really enjoyed my stay there. The location is close to the north gate and thus quite central. Staff is super friendly- especially the girls from the reception and the bar are eager to help u with any kind of problem, e.g. I needed to have another charging cable for my tablet as mine didnt work so i just asked at the reception...and they helped me out immediately. They also explained many things regarding my travels...would definitely stay there again. Bed, bathroom...everything is clean

I was two days at the 4th floor and it was excellent but the last day I had to move to the 8th floor I it was very different. My room was located just closed to the bathroom and was very noiser because of the the people and the exhaust working the hole night and the flat smell bad.No hangers in the showers......

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for choosing our hostel. We are sorry for the problems that happened in 8th floor. There were some workers from other floor doing constructions works at night. We are feel terrible sorry for you. We will do our best to improve our hard service and soft service. Hope you come next time.
