Wonderful staff, great outdoor seating, good food. Wonderful stay here, will stay again as soon as possible.


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.


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.
