Dont carry too much stuff, it's a good way up to the hostel. But once you reach the hostel - enjoy it. Great location to all viewpoints. And once again the volunteers earns respect, great work!
It's an okay place to stay one night. It's cheap, beds are okay for one night (if sleeping on a playwood is not a problem) The view from the Hostel is beautiful. Food is tasty and cheap if you are ready to wait 45minutes. At the time we have been there they didn't have rice... Seriously? In the middle of the rice terrasses...
Important: Please note that it has NO WESTERN TOILETS. Located at the entrance of Tiantouzhai, and about 30min away from the nearest bus stop in Dazhai village. Great spot to stay to see the sunrise. Had a friend staying at "Dazhai Dragon's Den" and my impression was that it had a better atmosphere. He had a western toilet in his room :). Overpriced food, as most of the village. Although everyone seems lazy and will advice you not to, hike to Ping'An (3 to 4 hrs).
The hostel/hotel in dazhai have all more or less the same price and standard. So it doesn't matter which you choose. This one is outstanding because of the girl at the reception. She is extremely friendly, cute and does everything with a smile. Food is also good.
To find the hostel just follow the signs to TienTou Zhai (when there aren't any signs ask around). It's the 1st hostel you come to with the best view. Don't let the rain put you off, it's all the more beautiful! The hostel is cheap, quaint and the view from the communal area is fantastic.The rooms are nice and the showers hot. Lily is wonderful, making a rainy day a very pleasurable one. Sweet, interesting and good at her job. :) Thank you for a lovely stay!
