    You will get more than expected for the price you pay for staying here. First of all, me and my group of people had so many last minute arrangements and Steven and his team attended to us attentively, fulfilling all our needs. The place is so near to Muslim Quarter that its so easy to get souvenirs and you will not have a chance to be hungry. This place is extra cosy and all the staffs were so friendly to us. The toilet was cleaned everyday during our stay. Thumbs up to everyone in Alley Youth hostel!!!

    Fantastic location and Great coffee

    Wanted to write and say how good my stay at this place was. Great location and clean facilities. Really good coffee bar and pleasant interior. Staff was very helpful to find me a ride to airport for very reasonable price. Even walked me to location so I won't get lost!!! Would recommend and I would definitely stay there again.

    Nice staff, fun location

    Staff was very nice. Location is good because it's very close to the Muslim Quarter, if that's your thing, but about a 12 minute walk through busy alleys to the subway. Room was really dusty upon arrival.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This hostel is an unbeatable price in a very cool neighborhood of Xi’an. I got a clean, private room, with great sunlight and a nice shower. The staff are incredible. From helping me mail postcards, to a guided tour around the old market, to a huge help — I had to go to the hospital for dehydration and the staff accompanied me, helped translate, and kept me company during a six hour IV drip. These are the best people. I’m forever grateful. Pro tip: the Google Maps location is incorrect due to Google being blocked by Chinese ISPs.

    Great stay, friendly staff

    English-speaking staff is available to help you. They offered some affordable tours around Xi’an. Location-wise, it’s near the Muslim Quarter and there’s a small convenience store nearby that is 24/7

    Great spot to stay in Xi'an

    Excellent hostel right in the middle of the Muslim Quarter and Xi'an itself. Very kind and helpful English-speaking staff. Also a cozy public area with a pool table, projector setup, and bar to hang out in. The lighting in the room was a bit dark, but the room itself was very clean, and the beds were comfy. Would stay again!

    nice owner but you get what you paid for

    This is a family-owned hostel and the owner is super nice. However the room is very small and basic. There are no toiletries or towels, nor do they change sheets if you stay for a few days.

    The neighbourhood is a fantastic taster of the Muslim quarter. Anyone looking for an authentic taste of Xi'an needs to stay here at least once.

  • 8.0.Very good

    I enjoyed my time at the hostel. Stephen and his family are very nice people and the staff were helpful and friendly. The room was a free upgrade and it was comfortable. Best part - the hostel is located in the middle of the Muslim Quarter. The quarter is a thriving area filled with excitement and many vendors selling souvenirs and food. The downside of the experience - an unreliable wifi that crashed occasionally.
