Everyone at the Hantag House and its sister Hostel are great, and the rooms are clean and in good condition.
If you are aprehensive about traveling in a country where you do not know the language or anyone, this might be the ideal place to start. If you have been traveling and crave Western food Hantag House delivers. Tours are of good quality. We especially enjoyed the Panda tour, something we did not expect to do in Xi'an.
One of its major strengths is also its weakness. That is it caters so much to young Western Backpackers that some of China gets lost in the process.
