“Very good location”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

The rooms are clean and spacious. The location is very nice as well and the staff very friendly. We haven't try the food in the restaurant because a little bit pricey for our budget but it seemed excellent. A lot of excursions can be booked directly at the hostel.

We would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Xi'an.

Very comfortable hostel, the room was spacious, the indoor bathroom was separated with the toilet, also very spacious. The bed was very comfortable. The staffs were friendly. Really really cozy. The location is nice, only 10-15 minutes walk to Bell Tower and MRT station. Would go to this place again the next time I visit Xi'an and would gladly recommend this hostel to my friends.

Room Tip: No elevators, so choose lower floors if you have difficulties with stairs.

I was initially going to stay in the sister hostel located just down the street but for some reason the staff told me to take a short walk down to Hantang House. I'm glad they did!

My first impression was pleasant, the staff are very welcoming and the bar/restaurant area is very cosy and inviting. I was even more pleasantly surprised when, despite a sign on the wall advertising 60 RMB per night, I was told a dormitory bed was only 35 RMB. The bedroom I stayed in was very clean and has a very western feel much more reminiscent of a hotel thanks largely to the en suite toilet and shower. Compared to other hostels I've stayed in, I would say the beds are about average in terms of comfort, though one can hardly expect 5-star comfort for 35 RMB. The room was also warm and overall an agreeable place to sleep.

The staff are very helpful and speak good English (if this is something you require). They were quick to recommend some local attractions, such as the bell tower, drum tower and Muslim quarter, all of which are within easy walking distance of the hostel. The staff were also informative about the various tours which are operated from the hostel. I decided to sign up for the Terracotta Army tour which, if memory serves, cost 238 RMB. I didn't check the price of admission etc. so I have no concept of whether this represents value for money, but I certainly do not regret taking part in this tour. Our tour guide Zha Zha (sp.) was good fun and informative and the trip also provided an opportunity to meet some of the fellow guests at the hostel.

The restaurant/bar is a little on the pricey side but the food and coffee are very good. In particular I would recommend the sandwiches; as someone who has been in China for several months, I can attest that a good sandwich is an exceptional rarity. This is also the first hostel I've been to which has draught beer: a pleasant surprise indeed.

In summary: if you go to Xi'an — stay in this hostel.

If you are traveling on a budget then this is the perfect place for you! The rooms are quite clean and comfortable, exactly what you would expect for the price. There is also a nice bar/restaurant that seemed to be routinely filled with other travelers. We rather enjoyed the breakfast each morning and being able to enjoy a cold drink in the evening upon return. However, the best thing about Hantang is its location. You are a 10-15 minutes walk away from the Bell and Drum Towers and also Muslin Street, a popular place to get food and buy small trinkets. You can also easily walk to the Old Town Wall (20+ minutes) where you can rent a bike and take a loop around the wall.

Hantang also provides many convenient services for its guests at reasonable prices such as day trips to the Terra Cotta Warriors, trips to Huashan, train tickets to on-ward destinations, airport transportation, etc... These are not free services, but they are convenient. We joined a day trip to the Terra Cotta Warriors with other Hantang guests, which was a bit touristy, but hey, any trip to see the Terra Cotta Warriors is going to be a bit touristy. Our only complaint was that the guides English was not great, a little difficult to understand at times.

My only caution is that while in Xi'an, especially around the Bell and Drum Towers, be very careful with your belongings. Xi'an is famous for its pit-pockets and I found this out the hard way. I had my iPhone stolen about 5-10 minutes after leaving Hantang while walking towards the Bell Tower and Old City Wall. But this was not Hantang's fault.

To summarize, Hantang is a very good place for budget travelers to stay in Xi'an, but make sure to be careful of the pit-pockets while walking to and around the various tourist sites in Xi'an!

I've been traveling China for almost 3 weeks now and this is the best place I've stayed at by far. The room was extremely clean and large with lots of space to put your things (desk, two night stands, table). Even had a flat screen TV with CNN! We booked a double, but the bed is a king size and very comfortable. Bathroom is modern and we always had hot water. The wifi reached our room just fine. The laundry service was great and they have hot water stations on every floor. The location excellent as we were within walking distance to the Muslim Quarter. I really enjoyed the service from the staff- such a relief from everywhere else in China. They spoke English and took the time to answer all questions. The only thing is that the food in the restaurant was quite expensive. Saved quite a bit of money by booking the room ahead of time online.

I stayed in a dorm room that was very clean and comfortable. There are large lockers for luggage. Each dorm room has its own bathroom with a nice hot shower.
The staff is nice and informative. The location is great - just a few stops on the 603 bus from the train station or South Fate of the city wall.
The food was a bit expensive, but if you want something convenient. I got drinks at the supermarket across the street for cheap.
Wifi is good and people are friendly in the downstairs lounge area.
One bad note - I did laundry here and it came back smoky. Would probably happen anyway but clean clothes should smell clean.
