This is a really fantastic hostel -I would definitely stay here again. Before we arrived the hostel sent an email with information of how to get there and tours and services available. (Small note, if travelling by bus some information was slightly different than the email). Despite this, the hostel was easy to get to, as it is right around...

The hostel is well located, very near a metro station. You can go everywhere by bus or metro. It's a little bit far from city center, but near the muslim quarter. The room was very spacious and confortable. The bathroom could be better, with courtains. Amazing bar/restaurant, with western food, very nice place. The staff is kind of serious, but...

I stayed in a shared room for four people. The rooms were clean, nothing special. The bathrooms are outside the room, but that was not a problem. They have a nice common area where you can relax and enjoy some drinks, it's close to some of the city's attractions.

Stayed there 2 nights with 22 yo son. Great location, walking distance to down area. People were helpful with nice bar & dining area. Rooms were reasonable size. Ours had a bathroom. Would have been nice if they would have supplied soap. Overall, it was a great deal with good location. Would stay there again without question.

Good location as located in the city walls. Really well set up hostel. We stayed in a double room which was very comfortable but also saw the dorm rooms & they also looked clean & spacious. There is a great lounge/bar area downstairs with very comfy lounges where you can just chill. Food from the bar was also very good...

The location is very good, the hostel is about 1 minute walking from the subway station and it's close to Bell and Drum towers and the Muslin site.

This is a great hostel even though we stayed in rooms rather than dormitory. It is clean and conveniently located, close to Muslim quarters, convenience stores & food and the metro. We arranged for pick-up from Xianyang airport given the midnight arrival of our flight - just remember to follow-up w them in case of slow response. We also found...
