We went here just for a drink in the bar as there are very few bars in the town. Had happy hour on so prices were good. The server had very good English. There are squat toilets so avoid if you don't like using them. Nobody else in the bar so not much atmosphere

Hantang is one of the best Western backpacker's hostel I've seen in China. It provides everything you expect from a hostel like laundy service, bar, evening programs etc. Staff there speaks a very good English which cannot be taken for granted in China. They are really trying their best to make your stay agreeable. But the downside is, that few...

I stayed at Hantang hostel for 2 nights. The staff was very helpful, sending me details of how to get to the hostel a few days before my stay. Rooms and even the bathroom were spotless. Air-con and wifi functioned well. It is also located at the city centre with the drum tower/bell tower minutes away. Highly recommended!

We stayed in XI'AN for two nights and booked in this hostel a private double room. The room was very clean and cosy. A perfect place to calm down. The staff was very helpful and the hostel itself has good breakfast and beers from all over the world. I really recommend this place in Xi'an.

We stayed for 4 nights and booked 3 more for a return trip. The staff was friendly, helpful, and had good English. It is located within minutes of many attractions, and transportation hubs. A little difficult to find for a first time visitor; I don't think I would have found it without a taxi. They have a great tour option...

We stayed at Hantang house. The staff were great and the location is in the middle of everything you want. The room was ok and given there is live music and a bar as part of the hostel, it can be a bit noisy at times, however if you are wanting a lively place to stay, this is the place...

Basically if you have your own room, like I did, it's a 2-star hotel. The menu in the lobby is a decent, if a bit pricey for what it is. The staff is very helpful, and they have a lot of fun free activities, from city walking tours to making dumplings in the evening. I'm glad I stayed here for...

The place is well located and the staff is super nice and most speak good english. The only drawback is the smoking allowed in the evenings, but that seems common in China The food is good and the rooms are fine. We really enjoyed our time there.

Hi all. This hotel is very central near Zhonglou Zhan stop (5 min from the hostel). We loved the bacon sandwich, various services (day trips to reserve a day before and the free tour of the city), the comfortable beds, the water pressure of the shower and the overall coziness of the place. We didn't really like that there was...
