Very popular hostel. Staff extremely helpful. Very friendly and upbeat. They can book onward travel tickets for you. They provided maps of city. Dorm offered a little luxury in decor. Extremely clean. Offer many tours and activities during stay. We took part in free dumpling cooking session which was very enjoyable and got us talking to other travellers. During our...

After reading some recent reviews on here we were a bit worried about staying here, however once we arrived and were in our room most of these worries were gone! The place is of a decent standard, the beds are comfy and service is with a smile. Th bathroom and rooms are clean, however the bathroom does have a bit...

*Preliminary rider* We only came here for dinner and drinks so this is not a review of the accommodation. Having got that out of the way, I must say that the hostel looks international, homely and welcoming and the waitress spoke decent Americanised English, so that's nice and positive. There, however, the positives end. I've always believed hostels are the...

The hostel messed up my reservation, which was a single private and I spent my first night in a dorm by myself. However, they did make up for the mistake and gave me an upgrade for the remainder of my stay. My overall experience was good. Location is very accessible and the staff were great. If you're a light sleeper,...

The hostel is located in a side street of one of the main streets of xi'an, which seems not too safe at a first glance while, actually, it is always crowded also at night. The room (we had a twin) was very basic, we expected more for what we paid. There is a nice bar but the breakfast was nothing...

Not 5 stars due to the receotion lady. She was too pushy wit the terracotta warriors tour,saying is hard to go by yourself...we went by ourselves, and was easy and much cheaper! Besides that, price, rooms and location is excellent. The room and bathroom were realky nice, and the matresses confortable. Probably one of the best hostels.in china so far!

Best customer service we experienced in the whole of our trip in China was from the staff in Hantang house. Sasha and Micky in particular. Would recommend anyone to come here, it's so friendly and the atmosphere is great.

Terrible place. Nothing at all as indicated in the lonely planet. Rude Staff, overpriced food and drinks and disgusting room. Everything sticks, it smells, is dark and Will not be cleaned during your stay. You have to ask toilet paper downstairs. Everything is charged, including clean towels or penalized (for making towels dirty). Did not get the room booked (double)...

I found this to be a perfect spot in the heart of Xi'an for all the sights. There are many upsides to this guest house and few downsides. Firstly, the location is right in the heart of Xi'an. It's only a short walk to the Bell and Drum towers. Secondly, the service is good. There are lots of friendly staff....

We stayed at Hantang House's sister Hostel, Hantang Inn (same street, No. 7). Walking distance to the Muslim Quarter (where you will find AMAZING food) Hantang Inn was friendly, comfortable and had excellent coffee and a great G&T! Our room was at the end of the corridor so was very quiet and comfortable (4 bunks with private bathroom). Super cheap...
