The location couldn't be better - literally on the edge of the Muslim quarter, which is fascinating. Mei was very helpful with advice on getting around, which meant I felt happy to use local buses - saving money and adding to the overall experience. As other reviewers have explained, it is actually a number of apartments rather than a traditional... More

hqhostel, Owner at Xian Apartments Guesthouse Hq, responded to this review

Thanks for your positive review. In regards to the cleanliness I apologise for that. Our cleaner was on holiday for that week and so we let ourselves down. I can absolutely assure you we now have rectified the situation and all our apartments are back to our usual standard which is spotlessly clean. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us!... More

I just spent two nights in one of the 2 bedroom apartments at hg hostel, and I recommend it very highly. This was really an excellent place for my family of four, including 4 and 6 year old boys. Considering the extra set of bunk beds in the kids' room, it could have easily accommodated two more kids. It was... More

Our family of four stayed here for two nights and had an excellent experience. This is the perfect place for a family because it's really more of an apartment then a hostel. What Mei and Todd have done is they own two apartments in a building and set one bedroom up in their apartment with beds and then the other... More

We stayed at Todd and Mei's place for four days during our visit to Xi'an. From the outset they were both warm and friendly, with Mei happy to meet us when we arrived off the airport bus and guide us back to their place. They both have great knowledge of the area and nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't... More

My friend and I stayed at the Hq for two nights as a side trip from Beijing. We booked the only double room which had ample space for the two of us and our bags. As we were the only ones there at the time (November), we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Mai was extremely helpful, responding to... More

This hostel was the perfect budget choice for my husband, myself and our four children (aged 11 to 16) on our recent trip to Xian. We organized our accommodation with Mai and Todd directly using their very informative web site. They answered our emails promptly and offered plenty of good advise. Mai picked us up from the railway station (free... More

There are bigger hostels in Xi'An and probably slightly cheaper ones, but there can not be a better hostel than HQ. I stumbled across it when looking for somewhere to watch the rugby world cup final. I liked what i saw and decided to move from where i was staying at the shuyuan (which was fine) and spend three fantastic... More

I ran into Todd, one of the owners, on the street while wandering around Xi'an and it turned out to be the best stroke of luck I had in that city. The place was comfortable and the atmosphere friendly, unlike a lot of big hostels. Mei, the other owner, even helped to book my plane ticket to Shanghai. The location... More
