“Clean, comfortable and centrally located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed two nights in a queen room with ensuite in early October 2013. I would highly recommend this hostel.

The room we stayed in was small - just enough room for the bed, and a console/desk. However, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It also had a flat screen TV. The bathroom was relatively large, modern and clean with a western toilet. It was a great place to stay - very centrally located in the middle of the old city of Xian. Very quiet at night. There was also a locked security door to the bedroom section that only guests could access.

The hostel is professionally managed, and the staff were all friendly, efficient and spoke excellent English.

The restaurant downstairs served excellent coffee, and the food was okay too. If you want beer, I suggest you try buying cans in the shop across the road - as it is very expensive in the hostel.

There was very comprehensive information about local sites and tours available in the restaurant or from hostel staff.

My husband and I and another couple (we are all in our mid 60's) had a wonderful stay at Hantang House. The staff was very helpful. Daisy had corresponded with me several times and set up our transportation to and from the airport. The food was great and we enjoyed the "dumpling party" . It was an excellent location. The hostel provides a tour to the Terra Cotta Warriors, so it was easy to arrange and we met people that were also staying at the Hostel. Overall it was a great experience.

Located in the centre of Xi'an in a silent and quiet street. It's in front of a shop where you can buy bottles of one and half litre of water for only 2,5 RMB each. They speak english. Our room was large with three big single beds, air conditioner and a clean and large bathroom decked with a plant. You can eat and drink in there. In the evening you can learn to do ravioli-dumplings, listen to music or other activities. I advise you to take part in their tour of terracotta warriors: no shopping, with a tourist guide who gave us the chance to visit with calm the location. Then you can eat tasty meal in a restaurant for juas 30 RMB.

As a couple of reviews have stated before - this is not a hostel. The only reason they can call themselves this is because they have dorm rooms. In every other sense it is a hotel and doesn't cater to backpackers.

We didn't eat or drink here as there are loads of cheap delicious restaurants and street stall nearby. But if we did, it would chew through our daily budget in a couple of meals - the prices are ridiculous (28RMB for tea!).

The staff aren't hugely helpful or friendly. We asked for a local market to buy fruit and they directed us to a seafood centre (?!). Eventually we found loads of cheap fruit near the bird market. It seems they can only offer information on the tours they have available, not much else.

On a positive note, the dorm rooms were very clean and comfortable with individual lights and an en suit bathroom.
A good location too.

Really high-level hostel, above european standards for cleanliness and confort. Big single beds pretty confortable, amazing common room where to meet guys from all across the world.
Also enjoyable are the little trips organized by the staff, the Terracotta Warriors one is amazing and very valuable for the quality/price rate

Room Tip: tried only private room with 3 beds, but it works well

Very clean accommodation and helpful staff. Michael taught us how to count to ten in Chinese.

Price of beer was expensive but they are happy for you to buy beer from supermarket across the road and drink outside.

Food was cheaper across the road too but you had to eat it, on a table, in the street. 4 yuen for wonton soup was good enough for breakfast. Most people ate further down the road - 10 yuen but you could sit indoors.

Hantang is a perfect option if you are thinking about a good hostel in Xi'An. The location is perfect, near a metro station and principal attractions in the old part of Xi'An. The rooms are almost new and very very clean; the staff is helpful and they have good options for tours. You will spend around 7 dolars a night for an incredible clean room.
