    It’s a quiet hostel and a clean place to sleep. I was grateful for always hot showers and security lockers in the rooms. The hostel isn’t focused on entertaining guests or getting young people together to party, which was more than okay with me. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. They allowed me to leave my luggage for a few hours after check out to do some more sightseeing before my night train. The hostel restaurant area serves breakfast only but drinks and coffee all day.

    Overall really lovely hostel, friendly and helpful staff. Comfy beds, nice big quilts, decent WiFi, mugs and hot water available to make tea or coffee. Showers (with hot water) and toilets on each floor, bathrooms consistently cleaned throughout the day and night, there are also hairdryers available. Washing machines are very cheap to use and there is a space on the rooftop to dry your clothes with hangers provided. Pool table in the big communal area, cheap/nice food and drinks, no complaints

    Convenient location within the city. The staff are friendly and can advise on how to get where you want to go. That said, the hostel and staff are not proactive in building a social atmosphere. There are also a few guests who appear to be living in the hostel long term. The one I met was a friendly guy, but this situation adds to my impression thgat the hostel ultimately does not care about building a fun atmosphere for travellers.

    Not much of an atmosphere but gets the basics done. Their English tours are marked up about 40%+ from their Chinese equivalents.

    I stayed at this hostel a few days and the facilities are brilliant, everything is clean and the location is perfect, just down the road from the Bell Tower and about 10 meters from two subway lines. There is a well equipped bar with cheap beer and the reception staff are really friendly and helpful. All of this makes it so hard to explain how empty the place was... it's empty almost all the time and the atmosphere is funeral-esque. If you want somewhere fun and interesting in Xian try Park Qin.

    It's a big hostel but not many people hanging our the nice common area. The dorm was clean comfortable. The showers/toilets are common for at least two floors so they get messy pretty fast and would need some work. It's an OK hostel

    Great location but when we arrived we found out they had put us in separate rooms. We asked if we could be placed in the same room, but they said we couldn’t because they were full. That wasn’t true, there were 2 empty beds in his room the whole time we were there. Also the staff wouldn’t help show us which tab to use to buy terra cotta warrior tickets on the online Chinese website. We think they wouldn’t because they offer a tour. Also found a cockroach in my room and flies in the shower.
