Why so darn good? "Finding a quiet location in the middle of a bustling city like Xi'an is a difficult task, but 7 Sages delivers this tranquility along with beautiful architecture and friendly service. Part of the Hosteling International group, travelers can rest assured that a quality, family atmosphere awaits them."
Location: "Part of the old 8th Route Army Office (on most Xi'an maps), the hostel sign can be seen along the BeiXin Street between the city wall and XiWu Road. Less than 2km distance from the Xi'an Railway Station."
Rooms: "Dormitory style rooms with shared bathrooms available as well as double suites with private bathrooms."
Food: "Local cuisine is served alongside western staples such as pizza, hamburgers, and spaghetti. Bar and coffee also available."
Vibe: "Very quiet and run by people who seem eager to help. "Beagle", the hostel dog (who happens to be a...beagle), keeps the courtyard atmosphere relaxed and fun. "
Keep in Mind: The hostel may be hard to find at first but the location is perfect for exploring the city of Xi'an, especially when coming or leaving by train. If you call ahead they will pick you up, I believe.
