I stayed one year ago in the same village in the other yha. The other hostel was better in the following two points: - the turned on the generator so we had last year two hours electricity. Dragons den refused to use it. - last year the hostel organized a guide to lead the way to pingan, dragons dens staff didn't even try. Everthing else was pretty much the same
We had a lovely stay at the Dragon's Den. The staff was very helpful and spoke very good English. The common places were very cosy and they even bring in dishes from the restaurant next door if you feel like staying in, at no extra cost. I definitely recommend a stay at the Dragon's Den, incredibly better than just a day trip from Guilin.

This is a very lovely hostel in a really cool location. The staff were very helpful and the food was great and reasonably priced. The rooms were very basic but clean, and though the bathroom was rudimentary it did the job and had hot showers. Definitely worth a visit, but use the picture map they provide to get there...

Wonderful staff, great outdoor seating, good food. Wonderful stay here, will stay again as soon as possible.
The hostel is right on top of Dazhai and is surrounded by amazing rice fields. It's quite a trek up but it's so worth it. The building is wooden so creaks a lot when people are walking about. It took about five minutes for the water to heat up, and a lot of the time it wasn't even warm. My dorm had a squat toilet but I saw some that had Western toilets - ask for one with Western toilets.
Amazing location, a 40 minute hike up from Dazhai (and the main tourist groups, happily) with stunning views over the rice terraces. Simple but fine rooms in a traditional wooden building. Great food. Helpful staff. The hikes in the surrounding area are breathtaking. The hostel organises it's own bus to from Guilin twice a day, which is super useful. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer!
Excellent location within the rice terraces. Nice view. Helpful staff.
Pros: very charming. Joey and the staff were helpful. Nice common area overlooking beautiful terraces. Cons: food isn't very cheap or frequently available. Mosquitos in room at night. It's a long trek to the hostel. I ended up staying here for two nights, hiking to Ping'an on day 2 to take the bus back to Tiantouzhai for my departure the next morning.
A truly magical experience staying here in the rice terraces.
