As Mei and Todd say on their web site "like staying at your mates" this combined with the their knowledge of Xi'an and laid back atmophere makes The HQ lodge the place in Xi'an to stay for me. Check out the tours on offer, and Todd thanks for the info about the hotpot restaurant. I count myself as a mate... More

For a chance to see the best of Xi'an withour putting yourself at the mercy of tours organized to sell souvenirs, and a ultra-friendly stay in a small home-like guesthouse, try HQ Hostel Xi'an. Todd and Mei were our key to the place--even tracked down the best places to try some local diahes we were eager to sample. Give them... More

What more can be said about how nice this place is to stay? I felt so relaxed and welcome here and it was also very clean. It is in a great location and the owners are very happy to help with local information and with the planning of sightseeing trips. A real home from home.

Mei and Todd are awesome. Their cosy wee hostel is delightful. The hostel is only a few months old, so everything is clean and tidy. Mei, especially, is so helpful and friendly, and an excellent cook. She is more than happy to share all her local knowledge and teach you some basic Chinese. She is a SUPERSTAR! The hostel is...

We were very surprised that Lelia from Romania had such a bad time here. This is what she wrote in our guest book: "I stayed here for three nights, a very pleasant place. A very good luck for me- INTERNET FREE. It was a cozy room and I say now: Mei and Todd are two perfect friends. Thank you! Lelia... More

HQ hostel is an odd, but very enjoyable hostel. Todd (a Kiwi) personally came down to the manic train station to guide us back to the hostel in a taxi. On the 5th floor of an apartment block just opposite the Muslim Quarter the hostel is more like staying with mates than a traditional backpacker hostel. We especially appreciated the... More

I stayed here for 1 night in June. The hostel is brand new, and is definitely more of an apartment feel than a hostel. Very clean, the private bedroom is very large, free internet access, and great location- walking distance to the markets and Muslim Quarter. The owners were friendly, and I would definitely recommend staying here!
