Nicely decorated rooms. Hostel provides laundry services at a nominal fee and since they have a dryer on site, you can get your clothes back in the same day. Free transfer to the train station. Staff is not friendly but competent enough.
Excellent staff. They were very sweet and helpful. In Xian, you only want to stay in the Muslim Quarters and the hostel is only a 5 min's walk away from it. The downside is the hostel does not have a lively hostel's atmosphere. It is not so ideal for a lone traveller, but good for groups.
The Gubeukou great wall was the highlight of my trip and I would definitely recommend staying the night at Great Wall Box Hostel. It was very clean and comfortable. Just a tip for getting there by bus, the bus stop for #25 is not located opposite the bus station for 980 express. From the exit, turn right. At the main traffic, cross the street. Turn right and wait at the second bus stop for #25.
Love the comfortable rooms and good accessibility to the main attractions, airport and train stations. However, the common bathrooms could be improved on- they were musky, tiny and cold. Also, although there were common sitting areas for guests, we were expected to give up the space to customers who were dining at the hostel's cafe.
love the lounge area.
the female dorm was very comfortable. love the welcome drinks at the rooftop bar. also thing that i didnt like was seeing guests using the indoor seats in their wet swimwear.
jose and zavier will try their best to give u a good stay. ask them for food recommendations!
the common areas were very nice. the staff was friendly and helpful. even the lady in charge of cleaning the kitchen and patio works very hard. i only wish u could change the lights in the rooms. they are too bright for guests sleeping on the upper bunks.
Had a wonderful stay. thanks carmen and co.
Hostel is new and nicely decorated. Even when I wanted to stay indoors, I was content to nap on the rooftop terrace, busking in the sun. The owner, Leon is a seasoned traveller within China, and can well offer helpful travel tips or help with enquiries. The staff was made up of university students who were on their term break when I was there. They were cheerful and friendly. Definitely a fun stay.
