The hostel is located next to the old city wall and is about 500m from railway station only. The hostel is in a classic Chinese row houses community - a real historical architecture in this ancient city. The property has been in existence for 100 years.
The whole setting is romantic and its design is based on row titles and white wall, timber windows, straight path through circular arch, courtyard planted with trees and scrubs etc. The characteristics of this architecture tend to coincide closely with the history of Chinese culture.
The original site where these row houses are situated dates back to the TANG dynasty (618AD) and was developed by a banker at the beginning of last century. It contains 10 courts and the hostel is in courtyard number 2,3,4,5& 6.
In modern history it was also the command post for one of the renowned red army troops based in Xian. The new hostel is situated in, and being part of, the former Eight Route army Xian Office.
It went through being, in different period of time, underground revolution activities post, red army liaison office and a reception centre for people involved in the war fighting against Japanese during the first half of last century. A memorial museum is just next to the hostel within the same compound. When you walk into this community, you will find no more concrete jungle and the surrounding is replaced by old house of bricks and tiles, green lawn and tall trees, which bring you the past and present both, exist at the same moment in time. It is like a haven of tranquility in this hustle bustle city, and a community in which nature and harmony meet
