I booked a double room in Hantang House for 4 nights in September and was allocated a unit on the 4th floor. The property has no lift service, so be prepared to climb the flight of stairs and this is certainly a minus for travelers with a suitcase rather than a backpack. The room had a modern furnishing, the bed was comfortable and the toilet was clean. For a double room, the space was rather limited, especially the shower area. The hostel featured a guided tour to the Big Wild Goose area on Monday evenings and attendees only needed to pay 2Yuan for the public bus. The guide brought us to a cafe in a nearby mall, and drinks were on the house. It was a very casual session to get to know like-minded travelers, and especially for those who just arrive in Xi An may find this additional service very welcoming. However, the hostel service was rather inconsistent. The staff was friendly on the day I checked in, but were less helpful on the day I checked out and asked for directions to some sites. In terms of location, the hostel is tucked into a very heartland neighbourhood, which is a good place to observe the locals, and it is within walking distance to the Bell Tower metro station and bus stops leading to the train station. One big plus is the availability of a convenient store opposite the hostel which sells reasonably-priced requisites such as drinks, fruits and comfort food.
