    Staff were helpful and friendly. There’s a bar and eating area at reception which is quite comfortable. The twin room was like a hotel with private shower/toilet. Would stay there again. Do the Muslim Quarter which is a few blocks away. We could have spent 3 full days instead of 2 in Xian.

    Over all this is a great place to stay! The rooms are super clean and it's very quiet! The tour we did was good! One minor point is that the food and drink they are expensive! But plenty of shops and eating places in the same street. Overall highly recommended!

    Staff were friendly and social area was great, plenty of room and food served here was great. Not much of an atmosphere so was quite good if you just wanted to chill. 20 minute walk to the muslim quarter and 20 min walk from the train station so great location. The room didn't seem to be very clean, and bathroom smelt a bit. Was okay for a few days but any longer and it would've been an issue.

    Decent set up in. But bad cleanliness. The cleaning lady sweeps the floor very briefly once a day for 2 minutes. Stairs to the upper bunk, little bed side self are never been dusted. Same for the toilet and shower. I saw the lady cleaned the toilet and shower twice during my five days stay. It makes the room stinks... Also the ventilation wasn't good. Staff were helpful though. And location is great between 2 metro stations. This is already a better place to stay in Xian.

    Sky bar of this hostel is lovely and breakfast (although not the cheapest) was reasonable and tasted good. A 15 minute walk to the metro, not many locations around the hostel to eat at and sights were fairly far away. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Beds were spacious and had 4 charging sockets and a shelf in the dorm rooms. The shared showers/toilets are better than those in the room.

    The staff were nice and most spoke good English. We arrived early in the morning off the train and the receptionist let us check into our beds early so we could sleep! The bathrooms could be cleaner.
