It is important to realise this hostel is literally on the rice terraces and not in dazhai village!! We arrived in dazhai village and rang the hostel to ask for directions there response was 'to ask locals'. Which we did and they pointed up a rice terrace! I would suggest this hostel is a good 30 minute hike up hike from dazhai village, so take that into consideration when planning. The hostel also doesn't have a safe or storage facilities so we had to hike with our laptops etc.
Good place, Nice view, more rustic dormitory but still confortable. Staff friendly and good food.
The place was super hard to find and took us over 2 hours as there were no signs whatsoever but the staff were really nice and food at the hostel was tasty. During my stay here the power was out the whole time so we didn't have any lights except candles. The view from the front yard is amazing and this place is right in the middle of the rice terraces !
Hostel was good... located in the middle of rice terrace in mountains... yes others commented, the hostel built of wood so hear everything from inside room.. better walk the hostel rather taking the cable car..
Cleaneliness was on the borderline of acceptable. We had a cockroach in our room...
Neither the walls nor the ceiling are soundproofing, it seems like the neighbour walked just near my bed. The weaster food i tried were handmade for sure and.nice tasting but definitively too small! The pizza is not sufficient to make a proper dish neither the pancake and the "chocolate" on the chocolate pancake is almost non-existent! So the price of the food (for the western) are way too expensive for what you actually get to eat! Moreover the explanation to find the hostel are very poor
This hostel is located in the middle of the terraces! It was amazing! the food they cook is also absolutely delicious! really really good! sheet were clean and room too, the toilets are not great (asian style) but i didnt really mind
