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!
Nice location although it takes you to the top of the hill from where you can easily visit the place you want to. But the problem is no single bathroom probably because of hilly area and Wi-Fi was so weak. Foods are good here but a bit costly. No towel but clean room. Beds are small but worthy because of living cost. People are friendly .
