Great atmosphere! The rooms are quite small, but the rooftop garden makes up for it! Staff is extremely helpful. Great vibe to meet other fellow travelers!

It is a nice hostel, but it was a bit more quiet than expected. Nice food, rooms are alright and staff is nice. Lockers are pretty old and probably easy to break in. Bathrooms gets flooded and one for six people is not enough. Cool dumpling party on Friday's.

We are so happy and appreciated that you give us so many good suggestions after your stay and feed it back in time, thank you. For your review, we will check the lockers and change the old one, but we promise that the lockers are safe and good to use no matter it is old. And we also have the private bathroom inside of the room and a public one in the roof garden which can be used all the time. All in all, we are so please to talk with you, and get the useful advise. Thank you again.

The hostel is centrally located within 10-15 minutes walk to the Bell Tower, the Drum Tower and the Muslin Quarter. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I was traveling with my parents and needed to change my booking last minute, and the hotel was fully booked already. However, the staff (Daisy and Yang Fang) went out of their ways to help make arrangements so we could stay in the same hostel without having to move. Definitely will stay here again if I am back in Xi'An.

But no matter how, helping you solve problems, making your stay comfortable and warm is our responsibility, we will always stick to, to do better. Welcome back.

The instructions to the hostel were not clear enough to get me exactly to the hostel. They should include the unit number, or a description of the outside of the hostel. My instructions from the email only said "Xi'an Hostel". That is not the correct name.

This place was FANTASTIC! It truly embodies everything a hostel should be: safe, fun, affordable and friendly. The staff was helpful, the location was excellent, and the atmosphere in the common areas was a great way to meet new people, yet still have privacy. Would definitely go back!

The rooms are a bit small for big backpacks but functional. Great rooftop with pingpong and sauna. Inside common area also offers a free pool table and some space to sit down. If you ask staff they will help you to book your next train ;)

Personally feel that the Han Tang House was a better set of facilities but more westerners stay at this hostel from my experiences so I would say the atmosphere here for me was better.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Wow, to be honest, you found the advantages of our hostel and the sister hostel, the better facilities and the better atmosphere, which is a good summary and urge us to learn by each other and be the hostel you expect. We are looking forward to seeing you next time and hoping for your good suggestions. Great greetings and best wishes form all the staff.

Wonderful hostel right near the center of historic Xian. The hostel seemed extremely well-run, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the common-areas had a great vibe.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Haha, the word "historic“ not only shows the culture of Xi'an, but the distinguishing feature of hantanginn-sense of history, contemporary and home, which makes us be proud, thank you. For you review, we know more about our room , atmosphere and security, and we will insist on the advantages and improve the inadequate, only hope you have a home feeling and a great time in Hantanginn.

Get the free pick-up from the train station. Someone was waiting for me with my name on a piece of paper stuck on an umbrella. Worry-free way to reach the hostel. Staff very nice and helpful with travel planning.

Han Tang was a great stay for 2 days in Xi'An. They are helpful in finding you transportation, organizing 'get togethers,' and providing tours to local attractions. Dorm was very clean and kept up, and the social areas were cozy and fun. The attached cafe was great for early mornings. Highly recommend, esp. if you're a solo traveler wanting to meet other interesting people.

Nice atmosphere, the 6 bed dorms are a bit small and the shower / toilet being a wet room is weird. Staff are friendly and speak very good english, definitely do the free dumpling tutorial!
