1There are 3 IYH sin Xian & close to the South Gate (10 min walk to Melody Hotel, the Bell Tower, the Drum Tower & Moslem Zone)
Early of Jan/2010, I stayed at HanTing Express-South Gate for CNY100~150. It includes breakfast (Continental & Chinese) . The manager speaks fluent English.
My room faces to the South Gate & the night view is amazing.

3If you plan to enter or leave by train then I highly suggest the Xi'an 7 Sages Hostel. It's walking distance from the train station and right inside the city wall. It's a converted courtyard home (with a 100 yr history!), an atmosphere which I prefer over the IYH hostels that are part of new developments.
Prices are reasonable, western food is available, rooms are clean and the bathroom is standard. The only downside is that it is located a bit far from the city center where you'll want to see the Bell Tower and Drum Tower, but you're close to a bus stop that will bring you there in 10 minutes.
Look up "7 Sages Xian" on Google for pictures and prices. Enjoy Xi'an...it's one of my favorite Chinese cities!

6The Hang Tang Inn (IYH) is a nice place near the Drum Tower. They have dorm rooms as well as private rooms with attached bathrooms. A double room with bathroom runs about 140Y, and half price or less for a dorm bed. The place is clean and comfortable. There's a restaurant in the hostel that serves western food, has a pool table, and also has a big screen TV with a lot of movies if you want to lounge on the couch. They also do free train station pick up if you make a reservation with them.

7We stayed in Xi'an 7 Sages Hostel 2 years ago. We really liked the environment and the open courtyard, it was nice to chill out.
Western breakfast available.

8Three of us recently visited Xi'an and stayed at the 7 Sages Hostel. It was incredible! We all agreed that it was the best hostel any of us have ever stayed at. We were able to get a private room with 1 double bed and 2 singles. It had it's own private marble bathroom with twin sinks as well. We paid about $6 each, so in total it was $18 and felt like a 4 star hotel. The environment is wonderful here with a great restaurant/ bar complete with a pool table room and Internet room. The management can arrange tours for you if you desire at reasonable prices. Also they rent bicycles there and offer massages. My friend and I each got a foot massage that was fantastic! I can't recommend this place enough- by the way it was ranked in the top 10 hostels of the world!
Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
