  • This was a great hostel, the location was good and the bar area was great and food was nice and reasonable. We booked a private double and it was standard and clean and didn't smell :) it's easy to reach from the train station and the staff are very helpful with providing bus numbers etc

  • Very good value for money. Perfect location (behind the main metro station - Beida Jie, the cross intersection between Line 1 and Line 2, and next to a Police station). Staff speaks English, although not all employees are evenly trained. A little light on the types of tour offered. Large bar, but not much interactions between guests (probably because it's large). Seems to be more popular with Chinese guests than foreigners. Staff did not enforce non smoking ban in the lounge.

  • Quite a good hostel in Xi'An, with a reasonable bar area and a dumpling making class every now and again, which was good fun! Staff were a bit hit or miss at times - mostly friendly on the desk; a bit snarly in the bar. The free map the hostel gives out is good, but definitely needs updating. The airport shuttle does NOT leave from near the Drum Tower... We learnt this the hard way! More of a hotel-feel in some ways too, but still very good value!

  • English level of some staff is great, and they were very helpful for all my touring needs. All staff, whether or not they had great English language capabilities, were cheerful and responsive. Coffee was good, though most food was heavy on the oil and carbs, but tasty. But hey, lots of choices in the neighborhood - including the Muslim Quarter which also runs off of Lianhu. I'm so glad I picked this location!
