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)... More

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.... More

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... More

You enter the hostel through their cafe/bar (which has two floors). The reception is at the right hand side of the bar and you're quickly checked in and the staff have very good English. As many reviews have said before, there is no elevator so you will have to carry all of your luggage up the stairs. The room is... More

We spent 4 nights at Han Tang House. We were in three (myself, my wife, our 17years old daughter). The triple family room we chose was very comfortable: comfortable beds, big toilet, efficient AC and with good acoustic isolation. The staff at reception was friendly and helpful, but I agree that sometimes they sort of show an "attitude". From my... More

We stayed a couple of nights at this hostel. Pros: It has a good position in a nice side street in Xi'An, which was always full of life. The bed IS amazingly comfortable for chinese standards. We don't know a lot about all the tours they offer, but what we did (Terracotta Warriors) was ok, a bit pricey but nice.... More

Four of us stayed here for three nights. While the location was spot on and the western food was good, the bathrooms were disgusting, there was no room service so we had to ask for new towels/ toilet paper. There was even a sign on the wall stating " please do no use towels as a mat as u may... More

Amazing rooms in this hostel and incredible value for money. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm that was huge with the best bathroom we have ever seen in a dorm room. Loads of space for luggage and private lockers. One suggestion I would make is to stay here(cheap great rooms) but to eat/drink/socialise in the Han Tang House Down... More

I stayed in a private room for 2 nights. The room was quite dark, but the bed was probably the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a hostel! There is a bar and restaurant downstairs which serves delicious Western food and is a good place to meet other travellers. There is live music in the bar at weekends. Very friendly... More

We stayed in a private double room for 2 nights. We really enjoyed our stay in hantang house. The hostel is in a great location and within walking distance to the Muslim quarter. The rooms had the feel of a 3 star hotel rather than hostel and were lovely and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was... More
