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!


Great location and value for money.

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

Hope to see you next time. 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!
