Hostelworld says

Xiangzimen International Youth Hostel is set in a 'very good location, close to the South Gate where you can rent bikes and ride along the city wall', as our guests say. It's also about 15 minutes' walk from the Muslim Quarter. This friendly hostel features free Wi-Fi, free coffee and beer and free pick-up from the train station. We like their weekly dumpling parties, where it's easy to meet other travellers.

It is said that the brother of the Song dynasty Emperor, Zhao Kuang Yin used to reside here in this very building, which has over 200 years of history, and for this reason has been especially preserved in Ming dynasty style by the Xi'an government. It is the only building of its type in the whole of northwest China, and is divided into two main parts: the front siheyuan with it's open-air courtyards and exquisite masonry, and the back with wooden panelling recreated in traditional ancient style. The charming atmosphere and friendly staff will instantly make you feel at home.
We are conveniently located in the heart of Xi'an - there is no need to take a taxi to any of the local sights, they can all be reached by foot within 10 minutes. Right outside our front door is the centre of Xi'an's nightlife, bar street (defuxiang) where there are plenty of bars and coffee houses where you can relax with locals or other travelers from all parts of the globe. And right outside the back door is the imposing South Gate, where you can scale the Ming dynasty city walls and command an Emperor's view of the whole city. Here you can truly escape form the hustle and bustle of city life, yet only 100 meters from our door lies South Street, one of the four main roads within the centre of Xi'an's city walls.
Xiangzimen truly is a home-away-from-home with unique features such as red lanterns, carved stone benches and giant vessels filled with vibrant fish adding to the character of the place.
If you have any problems here just ask any of our reception, bar or restaurant staff who will be able to help you. We offer information on all local tours, and it's possible to book tickets here, to suit all tastes and budgets. We can also help you buy train tickets to other destinations in China, and even help you to get a permit to enter Tibet.
In our hostel you'll find a well-stocked bar where you can enjoy your favorite drink, or a selection of both Chinese and Western cuisine, including pizza, pasta, sandwiches and other snacks. Each Friday evening we invite you to make dumplings here, free of charge! It's a great way to get to know other travelers, and learn a little Chinese culture while you're at it. You'll find Xiangzimen is a multi-cultural hub of communication. View House Rules

    This place wasn’t difficult to find. A little walk from the airport bus. Not bad at all. Such a great vibe and Chinese feel. Very please with that and many places to eat around. Very accommodating and fun. Xian became our favourite city to stay in. We didn’t have enough time to do most any of it. Recommend about 3 or 4 days to do it.

    Nice spot overlooking the city wall. A bit far from the bell tower but a short walk doesn’t hurt. Right next to the wall where you can rent bikes and cycle around it. Nice place and recommended.

    This was a lovely hostel. The building was beautifully styled and very clean. I stayed twice. The female dorm was a good size with big lockers, sturdy beds with curtains. There is a nice roof terrace, looking straight onto the wall. Also a very cute cat cafe across the road. Central to lots of bars and food options. Close to the metro and bus stop. The staff were very polite and let me leave my luggage while heading away for a night.

    Good location and they offer tours, different breakfast options and you can rent a bike. One of the staff members and a private tour guide I hired used a translator app which was very helpful. For being international, I wish they’d provide toilet paper. Good showers with plenty of stalls with hooks, soap basket and sinks. A reading light for each bed would be nice, it would make it easier to not disturb others that are sleeping. Big rm lockers and laundry service. A lot of smoking in eating area

    The hostel is in a great location. Although I had a little trouble finding it, because I trusted the website entirely without checking Google maps. There are actually two train stations and I arrived at the fast train station that is not mentioned on the website. Other than that little problem I would advise the hostel to choose a darker colour then white, when they decide to change the curtains. There are only 5 showers for one building; on the first night I had to wait for a while.

    Location is very good, next to the old city wall with a rooftop patio where you can sit and watch the tourists go by--especially nice at night with all the city lights. Only criticism is that there could be a stronger social vibe, with a more comfortable lounge for people to gather.

Xi'an Xiangzimen International Youth Hostel says

I think what puts our hostel ahead of the rest is our location, our service and our well-equipped facilities. For instance, we offer free pick-up from the train station in the morning and a free beer or coffee upon arrival. We're also set in a traditional Chinese building with quadrangle dwellings.
The city wall is one of the nearest attractions, just three minutes away on foot. I particularly recommend checking out the Muslim Quarter. There you can try local Xi'an food and snacks; it's like an open market, especially at night-it's very happening!
If you want to hang out at the hostel there's interesting stuff to do as well; every Friday we have a dumpling party where guests make and eat dumplings for free. Wang Bin, Owner
