As it was in winter, the room was pretty cold even with sweater and blankets. No heater.
GREAT HOSTEL. Staff is incredibly helpful, competent and friendly-- the owner met us when we arrived in Fenghuang to get us to the hostel, supplied a map and gave us advice on what to see, and even secured bus tickets for us AND made sure that a representative from the transportation office came to fetch us. Ensuite room was comfortable and clean, and had a small balcony as well as an electric blanket! Would stay here again.
This time I stayed in a deluxe double room. It was winter and the room had reverse cycle heat, an electric blanket and was really dry, which is great as it can be quite humid and wet in this awesome, ancient river town. The manager was great and super helpful. I also would highly recommend the Dehang/Qinzhao (?) daytrip the hostel can book for you. Awesome value for money.
The guy who takes care of the hostel is awesome! The taxi driver drove us at the wrong place, we called the guy and he came to pick us up. He was also very helpful for tips about restaurants around, things to do and train tickets (even went to buy them for us to let us go visit). The hostel is clean and the heating blanket is very useful!
Lovely staff who gives you advices, tickets booking. Difficult to find the place (but they may pick you up if you call them, so it is ok). Really cold in the dormitory of 4 people at this period of the year (no heating).
Located in the very center of an old town, but hard to find first. Staff is very nice and helpful.
Outstanding staff. #1 guy spoke good English, was quite friendly, and very helpful in arranging ticket onward, etc., Nice people !!!!! #2 guy also knowledgable and helpful !!!
A good located hostel with great stuff! The owner and all the others were helpful in all belongings. Stayed in the dormitory and the beds are quite short (I'm 185cm) and the bathrom smelld bad, but all in all a good choice!
Situated in a quiet area that good for sleeping but walking just 5-10 min to the center of old town.
Great location, great service, great tipps. The fact that all spoke at least a little english was very very helpful. Try to keep that if possible. Thank you

i booked two rooms for my clients and they absolutely LOVED the owner (or the worker, I'm not sure) - Donkey. Said he was most nice and helpful, met them at the gate so they wouldn't have to pay for the Old City and took good care of them 8)
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pick up to avoid the entrance fee worked perfectl. They also buyed some breakfast for us on the streets. The only thing bad was that in the single room there was only a squat toilet and the shower was directly above.
