We loved hantang house- it was definitely one of our favourite hostels in china. Our double room with ensuite was excellent value and better than most of the mid range hotel rooms we've stayed in. Also comfiest bed we've slept in in 2 months backpacking around china. The staff were helpful and the bar downstairs is really sociable. Laundry service... More

Having been hosteling my way through China on a 1 month backpacking holiday, I can safely say that Hantang House was the friendliest and most comfortable hostel I had the pleasure in staying on. Upon arrival I checked into my room, an 8 bed mixed dorm, and went back downstairs to book myself onto a tour to the Terracotta Army... More

We stayed in an 8 bed dorm for two nights. The price is fine for the rooms and the service is ok. The prices in the bar area though just as expensive as in England which is a shame as everything else was fine. If you walk down the road you can find cheap food and beer which is the... More

This place is very cheap, location seems good and the rooms are very basic but ours was spacious. The only issue is we were under the impression that it's a hotel but it's definitely a hostel with a noisy bar at the bottom and many loud backpackers.

We just came back today from week's stay in Xian and stayed at Hantang House on the 14th, 16th and 19th June 2014. We browsed TripAdvisor on 27th May and Booking.com came back immediately with confirmation of 3 nights at Y240 per night. The staff at Hantang House followed immediately with email offers to book tours and how they can... More

We did not stay here but used them to book two tours - one to the Teraccota Warriors and the other to the tomb of Jingdi. They were very helpful, staff spoke excellent English, their tours were reasonable and information on what was included was very clear. The Terracota Warrirors tour had a guide who was excellent. It was a... More

Not a bad place to spend two days. We were able to stay for a night in a super comfy bed. Everything was very clean and western style toilets. Stored our luggage for free in the den while we hiked Mt. Huashan for two days. When we returned we checked back in and grabbed a shower. The floors lock so... More

We only stayed here one night but the breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful by writing us notes in Chinese to send a package abroad and giving information about the possibilities in Xi'an. The hostel provides tours to the main attractions in Xi'an for a good value. I would stay here again.

Great hotel/hostel. Staff have good English. There is no lobby, just the bar/restaurant on the first two floors. Rooms up top are quiet and clean. The beds are quite soft for China. Lots of activities posted (ie dumpling feast on Wednesdays, live music, tour shout outs) - great for all kinds of travellers looking to buddy up for tours, etc.... More

Great atmosphere and centrally located within the Old City Walls, within a 10-15 minute walk to the Bell/Drum Towers and the Muslim Quarter. Rooms were clean and simple with comfortable beds. Lots of staff (English-speaking) on hand and very helpful in arranging activities and day tours (e.g. Terra Cotta warriors). Good selection of western food, drinks, etc. although you pay... More
