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.

    Really nice hostel. Great atmosphere and common area. Lovely comfortable rooms. Top location. Staff were sometimes a bit rude and not the most helpful.

    Very Good

    06 Sep 2018
    My stay was relatively good aside from two big issues. The first was that the “air conditioning” would not blow cold air no matter how high I set it and so the room got incredibly hot. Second, and more important, upon checking out the staff cheated me out of my 100 yuan deposit. The man who checked in my friend and I collected 100 yuan from each of us, but wrote our names on the same receipt so only one of us got our deposit back. Pretty annoying.

    This is the worst experience I have ever had with a hostel. The AC didn't work properly, they claimed "thats just how it is," so I slept poorly. They neglected to tell me I would have to switch rooms one day, and proceeded to go in to the room, unlock my LOCKED locker, and throw ALL of my things into plastic bags and bring it down to the front desk until I arrived later that night. Their response was simply "we forgot to tell you." Upon checkout they refused to refund my friend 100 kuai deposit.

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
