The bar downstairs refused to acknowledge me despite plenty of empty tables. I asked for a drink and was told i need to spend minimum $100 to sit down. Hostel is noisy as a result of being above this terribly serviced bar.

This hostel had a really nice atmosphere making it i pleasant place to come back to after a long day. The staff where friendly and helpfull with both trainticket buying and tours. They spoke very good english making it very international. The dormrooms where pretty basic and had lockers for valuables which was nice. At the time I was there,...

Excellent location, right near the South Gate for the city walls and short walk to the Muslim Quarter. Hostel itself was not great, first room we had the best was very broken and the shower was temperamental (turning warm to scalding with no warning). Second room was better but we were kept awake all night by the awful singer in...

Cute place, with one cat and two dogs. Well located. Staff is nice. However, if you wish to get some sleep at night (which would be totally normal!), forget it! Mattresses are super uncomfortable. Also, the three courtyards are full of people until 1:30-2:00 in the morning, and the bedrooms/dorms have windows on those courtyards. Last night, we could even...

Great hostel, great location! The staff are very friendly and helpful, and are always available. The rooms were clean and comfortable, lockers in the rooms (bring your own lock). They have a organized events to meet people at almost every day which is really fun! I would recommend bringing shoes to wear to the bathrooms/showers. Would absolutely stay here again.

Pros: Staffs are friendly and available 24 hours. They speak good English, and they have free city map. The location is just cool, just walking distance from the city wall and subway station. There are lots of attractions at just walking distance. I booked trip to the Terracotta Warriors using hostel and it was really nice. There is nice bar...

Buzzing atmosphere. The set up is funky. There's a bar below too. Rooms are fairly quiet. Met some great long-time friends here. Staff can help with train and air tickets. There are posters with ideas and ways to get to local sights. Would recommend the hostel's tour to the Terracotta warriors. Lady Ja Ja is the best. You can do...

The best about this hostel is the service: The young people working there speek good English and are eager to help in every way they can: they booked show tickets for us, made phone calls, sent away our postcards, got a sewing kit for us, etc. This is real motivation and how customer service should work! Ok, maybe the room...

Enjoyed my two night stay here in the 8 bed dorm however the hostel was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. there was only one other person staying in my room during my time here. I did like how the hostel organized activities every evening and there was a bar downstairs which I heard was very popular however I never had...

“People who stay on the second courtyard might be annoyed by the noise from the bar that is in the basement. I'd recommend to take a room around the third courtyard (at the back).”
