wish they had a drier! went to the airport with a bag wet clothes. my own fault I know. place is clean modern, and has all the trappings of a great hotel, for hostel prices. best in xian
Our Delux room was perfect! It was big and clean with nice bathroom and big shower. Also there was additional table for our belongings. I indicated that it was DELUX room - I do not know about other rooms. Hostel staff is nice and they can speak english. Also the localization is great - just a few minutes by bus from the railway station. However it was quite difficult to find this hostel - even for chinese. Breakfast is very good but expensive and small.
Laid-back vibe, cheap laundry. Not the cleanest, but decently clean by Chinese standards. Only complaint is dorm window opens onto the cafe, so the room is either noisy or stuffy.
Right next to subway, fantastic decor, resturant next door (left out door next to giant bike shop) is amazing - food in hostel is over priced & staff found it very hard to handle orders, room was big and very clean, staff were helpfull but did mess our booking up and tried to charge us for an extra day - sorted and gave us free coffee. All in all great place and would recommend. From slow train station we took 266 bus, got off at 4th stop, walk back in direction bus came and look up for sign.
The Green Forest Hotel offers a nice place to discover Xi'an. The cosy atmosphere in the communal area, the friendly staff and the clean and light rooms all make this hostel a pleasant place to stay a few nights. The metro is very cose by too. Keep in mind that the city center is quite a walk (if you do not want to take the metro) and that the rooms are a bit noisy (thin walls and noise from outside).
Great hostel with a chilled out vibe
To my experience, this is the best hostel in China. The dorm rooms were nice and clean with comfortable beds and the in the (deluxe) double room you felt like you were staying in an upscale Hotel. But most importantly; The staff is simply amazing. If there were any shortcomings to this hostel, they made up for them all.
It is really good hostel! They were really helpful and the place is beautiful.
really clean and nice rooms

All in all, a nice hostel in a good location with very friendly and helpful staff. Good location, very close to subway and the north part of the city wall. Down side, the toilet area smells of pure sewage which was a little off -putting. Also, my friend left her trainers after checking out only to return a few hours later to be told there was nothing left behind. My last criticism, there are no instructions for traveling from Xi'an North station on the website which caused issue.
This hostel is maybe the best i've been so far in china! Helpfull staff, nice lounge with balcony and view at the city wall! The rooms are epuipped quite comfortable and the western bathroom does not reveal any faults! Green Forest is totally worth staying there for some nights, I felt very good there. Maybe it´s a bit hard to find at the first time, cause it's in the 4th floor and the way description is not as detailed.
Perfect backpackers for Xi'an with a perfect location to visit the city (close to the train/bus station) The staff is super cool, smiling and helpful. Very good prices aswell, I fully recommand this hostel :)
Great hostel. Big and nice rooms. Friendly staff. Great food just around the corner. Great atmosphere - love the roof terrace.
Room was a good size with very comfortable twin beds, bathroom was also a good size. Staff were excellent and spoke very good English really made us welcome. Perhaps could improve food menue. But otherwise highly recommended.
Super nice staff and modern looking hostel with a nice big common room. Next to subway (2 stops from the Drum Tower). I would stay here again.
The comfiest bed in China! Not in the old city but close to the subway and train staton, the staff are really helpful and speak good english.
Very good hostel in Xi'an which will be to the tastes of most Western backpackers. My dorm days are over travelling with the girlie now but the privates were very good. Located just outside the city wall it is not right in town, but the nearby tube will get you around quickly. The facilities were very good, super clean, fast free wi-fi and a great deck/common area. By Xi'an standards though it is not the cheapest, but then you get what you pay for. A great stay.
The hostel is not far from the city wall and has a nice bar. I liked the staff, they are cool people.

Super friendly stuff, amazing location. Loved it! :)
Hostel is in a pretty easy to find location, right in the same building as a bike store called "Giant" so it's easy to find. It's near the railway station. Very modern feel. The double private is just like a hotel room. It's super nice. Staff is very accommodating.
