Hi Jennifer,
i always stay in the Fukai hotel, this is just outside of the town center, nice surrounding, good rooms and not expansive i can recommand it, but still around 30 dollars a night, maybe you can get a good deal now, just try it.
good luck !

Hi Jennifer. If you want cheaper hostels, but would like a recommendation along with them, I recommend you check out . It is a great site that I have used several times for locations around China, including Shanghai. They have backpacker specials and sometimes you can get a hotel room, for about the same price, depending on what you want to pay. I have a lot of friends in Xi'an, so don't often stay in hotel or hostel there, but the website has helped me a lot in other places. Have a great time in Xi'an!!
Dear Jennifer, Just follow mr Anders' advise and you will find what you are looking for. I remember there is a youth hostel near the city wall, looked ok but forgot the name :-/ For better hotels at good prices instead of Elong I would look at

Have a nice journey

Hi Jennifer,
There are a large number of backpacker's hostels and hotels in Xian. I recommend the hostels, over all they're clean and very well priced. I know of at least two whose rates start around 25 RMB (that's less than 5USD a night). Check out the hostelling international website and both include good reviews and customer comments.
The accredited hostelling sites in Xian can be located on and some independent ones on .
I hope this helps!

so far, in my experienxes, there should be youth hostels in Xi'an and some quite ecomomic hotels for backpackers. And I can ask my counterpart to offer helps you maybe need if you can tell me your schedule. You can get to Xi'an by train, that will take you roughly 10 hours for the trip, the price for hard sleeper is RMB269.00/p.p.
Hi, Jennifer
I am the right person who can do your a great favour. I am exactly in Xi'an and working in an international travel company. According to your requests, there are several youth hostels in the city center--inside the ancient City Wall. The following are the list:
1. Xiangzimen Youth Hostel
2. Xi'an Shuyuan Youth Hostel
3. Xi'an Zhonglou Youth Hostel
They all are in good location. You can look at their websites and compare them, choose the one that suits in your need.
Any other requests you'd like to know, just no hesitation to contact me.

Have a good time!
