I should start by saying this is a completely unbiased review (Jano's were offering printed maps of the city in return for a 5 stars review on Trip Advisor – we didn't take a map purposely so that we could remain impartial when reviewing the hostel). In short, our stay at Jano's was really special. My parents and I (grown-up...

I stayed here on my own and had one of the village kang beds and it was great. The bed was massive and the room was also. Location was really good just inside the city wall along a street with plenty of places to have a beer and relax. Don't know what the dorms are like but would recommend the...

Jano's is located near the wall of the inner city, in a low rise district, which has remained quiet and authentic, neat some great streets, with tons of interesting shops and museums. I had a small double room to myself with a private shower room, opening on a terrace. It was quite comfortable, even if there were better rooms available...

We got off the train from Chengdu at 2300 and spent an hour and a half looking for this place. It's on Shuncheng Nanlu Dongduan Street, right against the south wall of the city. Jacky's Bar is on the corner, then the Back Nook bar, Hero bar and a few others. Walk past these bars and take your first left(north)...

Staff speaks english. Cute area near the hotel (shops selling oil paintings, art supplies, decorations, etc. ) Negative: The room was very dark as...

Our family of 5 used 2 rooms at Jano's in late September. The location within the walls and in the old town is perfect, close to great alleys and strips of cheat eateries. The communication by email was great and all arrangements were very smoothly done. The rooms were good. Our twin room (i.e. for us parents) was nice (en...

We arrived late at night and turned on the ac as it was very hot. Downstairs is a Belgian Beer Cafe with live music so we enjoyed a cold beer in the very pretty outdoor seating area. Although we were concerned that the very loud music would be audible in our room, we neednt've worried as it didn't bother us...

I'm 58 and stayed in Jano's last month. Ex forces and know how to rough it if needed. Brilliant, brilliant place to stay. Staff - super. Accommodation (top floor) - superb. I would neither consider anywhere else to stay or recommend anywhere else to stay in Xian. Best hostel accommodation I have stayed in . . . . . ..

We absolutely loved our five day stay at Jano's. A five-star rating for a three-star hotel may seem overzealous, but it's with good reason...and to be taken in context of a backpackers, of course you can't approach it expecting the ammenities of a five-star hotel. The staff are absolutely amazing, going out of their way to help you out and...
