Liked: Nice bar and outdoor area, nice use of all 7 sages. Helpful staff and smiles.

Disliked: Road noise sometimes, and a little bit further out of town than other hostels, but close to railway station and bus station for Terracotta Warriors.

Liked: This hostel is both ancient and amazing. The staff are great and helped us with all our queries. The history is well preserved. Very close to the North Gate, and railway station, and slightly longer walk to the main tourist areas of town.

Disliked: Central smoking area in the courtyard nearby the café was unpleasant for non-smokers, but this didn't affect us in our room.

City break

14 November 2013 Judith would recommend this property

Liked: Beautiful hostel situated in a traditional courtyard. The (double) rooms are clean and equipped with basic tools incluing slippers, glasses, a water boiler and towels. The beds are very comfortable and I like how you have your own room in the courtyard. Very good value for money. The common areas are nicely decorated and give a comfy feel. The common space inside has a traditional stove which makes the room very comforable and warm. Free books to read and regular movie nights and other activities. Conveniently located near the train station and at walking distance from the city centre.

Disliked: The 'western' food is obviously Chinese-style western food, but it is sufficient.

Liked: The atmosphere is nice! You're in your own hutong with all the little houses/rooms. Very nice and quiet. The rooms were quite small but clean. Hot water at any time. Boiling water for tea/ coffee available or water boiler in the private rooms. Nice bar and nice outside sitting facilities although I can imagine that it might be a bit cold there during winter time especially in the dormrooms when you have to walk through the yard to shower. But all nice and clean! Pretty close to the train station and the city wall. Nice environment with little food streets and shops...

Liked: Great wifi in common areas, beautiful historic property

Disliked: The food is honestly terrible. What is served is not what is on the menu. For example if you order muesli- you instead get yogurt with watermelon. If you order a Ceasear salad- you instead get a salad with bacon and fried chicken. It's a bit bizarre. My boyfriend would also suggest the the mystery meat labeled ham be avoided at all costs.

Liked: Best hostel I stayed so far in China! Great atmosphere, located in a nice , scenic courtyard house. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good location, within walking distance to the main train station and bus terminal to the terra cotta warriors and Hua shan. The single room was very nice and clean, only a bit small. The rental bikes are a bit old and crapy, but cheap and they almost have some old school style. And okay to get around in the city.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
