Great location . just 5 min to subway station

Hostel is a bit hard to find for those have no experience in mandarin. I suggest to update the directions with additional address information in Chinese for example taxi drivers or those by foot and having only Chinese maps (like Baidu). Staff and owner are very friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities are clean and organised. The dorm I had, had no windows outside, not a real problem for me though. Location is ok, just outside the north wall. Cheapest in town! Would recommend.

Nice hostel, with a cool lounge area that offers reasonable priced drinks. Some of the staff didn"t speak that well English, as previous comments said.

We have training some new staff who can speak good English. When you come here next time, you will have another better experience. Have a nice trip!

Nice room, brilliant bed, a little hard to find the front door due to poor signage but not as bad as other reviews make out. Wifi Not as good as it should be and this is very important for modern travellers. Staff were friendly and helpful and provided maps and guides. 1 grumble, the food in the cafe is over priced, especially given the meagre size of the portions. It would be cheaper to get on the tube and go to McDonald's by the bell tower than to eat in the cafe which was dissapointing.

The hostel is amazing, looks like a hotel to me. The lounge area, the rooms, the bathroom, the staff, was a 10. If i ever return to Xi'an i will stay here again, that's for sure.

Not a bad hostel at all, quite hard to find but turned out to be in a great location with a fantastic view of the North Gate from the terrace. Quite a difficult language barrier with the staff, but they were still helpful. Would stay here again

I had a great time at my stay in this hostel for 2 nights! The room was clean and the facilities too. The only problem I had was when I had a difficult time to sleep after a long hour of journey from Shanghai because of the bar's very loud music. My dorm room was just right beside the bar.

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
