Physically, the first hostel I stayed at in Xian was really nice. Everything was clean and nice and comfy. My only real complaint was that the bar and restaurant staff on two occasions asked me to give up the table I was occupying to some Chinese people. "They’re friends of the management." they told me. I told them that I couldn’t care less who they were and there might have been a confrontation had the people I was with not insisted we move and avoid any hassles. Eventually, I moved to a different hostel. The best vote that can be cast is one made with dollars. Truth is, from what I understand, the vast majority of lodging establishments in China do not accept non-Chinese peoples.
