The hostel messed up my reservation, which was a single private and I spent my first night in a dorm by myself. However, they did make up for the mistake and gave me an upgrade for the remainder of my stay. My overall experience was good. Location is very accessible and the staff were great. If you're a light sleeper,... More

The hostel is located in a side street of one of the main streets of xi'an, which seems not too safe at a first glance while, actually, it is always crowded also at night. The room (we had a twin) was very basic, we expected more for what we paid. There is a nice bar but the breakfast was nothing... More

Not 5 stars due to the receotion lady. She was too pushy wit the terracotta warriors tour,saying is hard to go by yourself...we went by ourselves, and was easy and much cheaper! Besides that, price, rooms and location is excellent. The room and bathroom were realky nice, and the matresses confortable. Probably one of the best hostels.in china so far!

Best customer service we experienced in the whole of our trip in China was from the staff in Hantang house. Sasha and Micky in particular. Would recommend anyone to come here, it's so friendly and the atmosphere is great.

Terrible place. Nothing at all as indicated in the lonely planet. Rude Staff, overpriced food and drinks and disgusting room. Everything sticks, it smells, is dark and Will not be cleaned during your stay. You have to ask toilet paper downstairs. Everything is charged, including clean towels or penalized (for making towels dirty). Did not get the room booked (double)... More

I found this to be a perfect spot in the heart of Xi'an for all the sights. There are many upsides to this guest house and few downsides. Firstly, the location is right in the heart of Xi'an. It's only a short walk to the Bell and Drum towers. Secondly, the service is good. There are lots of friendly staff.... More

We stayed at Hantang House's sister Hostel, Hantang Inn (same street, No. 7). Walking distance to the Muslim Quarter (where you will find AMAZING food) Hantang Inn was friendly, comfortable and had excellent coffee and a great G&T! Our room was at the end of the corridor so was very quiet and comfortable (4 bunks with private bathroom). Super cheap... More

You enter the hostel through their cafe/bar (which has two floors). The reception is at the right hand side of the bar and you're quickly checked in and the staff have very good English. As many reviews have said before, there is no elevator so you will have to carry all of your luggage up the stairs. The room is... More

We spent 4 nights at Han Tang House. We were in three (myself, my wife, our 17years old daughter). The triple family room we chose was very comfortable: comfortable beds, big toilet, efficient AC and with good acoustic isolation. The staff at reception was friendly and helpful, but I agree that sometimes they sort of show an "attitude". From my... More

We stayed a couple of nights at this hostel. Pros: It has a good position in a nice side street in Xi'An, which was always full of life. The bed IS amazingly comfortable for chinese standards. We don't know a lot about all the tours they offer, but what we did (Terracotta Warriors) was ok, a bit pricey but nice.... More
