Very nice hostel in a wonderful area! What a view from your windows! House made by wood so don't forget earplugs! Staff Ok for check-in and informations but if you want to order dinner, they don't come at your table, you need to go to the bar. They are all the day on Internet... I recommand to spend one night in this hostel and do the hike between Dazhai and Pingan (or the other way), one of the best hike in China!

Thanks for your suggestion. We are youth hostel, not hotel, so there is no waiter. Have a good trip in China.

Dragon's Den has a great view as it overlooks the rice terraces in Tiantou Village. It is easy to find if you have their brochure/map, but perhaps a bit more difficult if you do not. Rooms are clean, facilities are clean and are in working order. The only thing that is rather annoying may be loud guests at night, whether inside or outside the hostel as the walls are all wooden and not insulated, following more traditional architecture. Sound carries very well. I do recommend staying here!

HeHe, it's really a little hard to get to here, at least 40 minutes climbing the hill. Have a good trip in China.

A beautiful location, but a bit of a climb and should not be done midday due to the extreme heat and humidity. Noisy and ill-mannered guests ignored the many signs to be quiet. If guests refuse to be quiet, they should be kicked out and fined.

Some guests really ignore the signs to be quiet. Most of the guest house here is wooden house. We suggest all the guests pay attention to this, so we all will have a good time here. Have a good trip in China.

Great place, just prepare for a real hike to get there. At the hostel, try the eggplant! Do not order the duck. Overall an awesome experience.

Perfect location with a great view over the rice fields! It takes about 40 minutes to hike up to the hostel but it is easy to find. The food in the hostel is great and it is the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer on the balkony. Don't miss the sun rise if you have good weather!

Hiking up to the top of the village to stay here is definitely worth your while - don't be lazy and take the cable car to the other side! This hostel is simple (of course it's on the top of a hill in the rice fields) and a great place to kick back for a few days and explore the surrounding area. They have good food and coffee, and a nice common area to hang out in. Don't just come to Longji on a day trip, but stay a few days and enjoy it!

Great location! My only complaint is that the bathrooms were a little unclean, but other than that, great place!

I strongly recommend staying TWO nights if you can. It's a nice summer getaway with stunning views. The rice terraces are an amazing place to relax. The hike up to this hostel wasn't too difficult for my 60-year-old parents, and it's not in the middle of the recent hotel boom going on near the ropeway/lower regions. This hostel, and many others at the terraces, are made of thin wood, so be mindful of the noise you make. Not a lot of amenities, but for this price, don't be too picky. Loved it!

The hostel is in a great location for hiking up to the rice terraces, and definitely doesn't feel too touristy. It's a decent climb to the hostel (approx 50mins from the parking lot) but you can pay the ladies to carry your bags and they're super lovely. Hostel rooms are noisy, although most of the noise is from outside and it was clear the hostel were doing all they could to minimise this. Wasn't overly clean and lots of bugs around but overall a great jumping point for an amazing location.

I stayed in the dorm in room 201 which had AC, helpful since Guilin is very humid. It was great value for the money. The people at front desk are helpful. Told me the hiking route to ping'an and booked bus tickets to yangshuo. Would stay again
