Staff were friendly and helpful. Cleanliness was acceptable. Laundry facility chaotic - looked like this area was still under construction Did not appear to be many guests here. Seems that Tunxi is a more popular destination

Very good beds and very good showers - excellent qualities for a hostel that people come back to after walking across a huge mountain! Can be a bit noisy at night, which is a problem if you want to wake up early for Huangshan, but that's a problem with the other guests, not the hostel. If you want to set off for Huangshan really early, remember to tell the staff the night before, otherwise you'll have to wait until the doors open at 06:30. It's easier if you arrive by bus/coach, than by train

This hostel is on a great location as a start for hiking to the Yellow Mountains. Rooms were very new and clean, but the reception/bar area was very cold and no nice place for a drink. Also the staff was not really helpful and they had nothing of all the nice breakfast what was promoted at the reception. A little bit a deception after reading all the other nice reviews about this hostel. Probably in the higher/warmer season this is better.

No WiFi in rooms but excellent WiFi downstairs and massive area to sit. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice big rooms.

The hostel is nice so far, the problem occured the morning we wanted to leave the place. Despite the fact that they asked us whether we wanted an early breaksfast at 6am, there was not nightguard in the morning. The door was locked and we could not get back our 200RMB fee for the key deposit. We had to leave through the emergency exit. Very bad!

Security- No problems. Location- 1KM from bus station Staff- No problems. Atmosphere- Open common area. Cleanliness- OK Value For Money- OK Facilities- OK, just watch out not to get locked in the bathroom... not fun..Overall- Decent hostel, no major issues. The bunks, lockers, are built strong... Remember to bring a lock.

The hostel is ran by very friendly people and is situated in a good spot near the bus station to the mountain. However, it does lack adequate heating in the rooms and washing facilities. There is also no restaurant or cafe in the hostel - but this is not needed due to many of these being nearby. It is worth staying here for the nice atmosphere and very good staff who will try their best to help.

Me and my friend stayed in a twin room, but it was sooo cold. When we entered the room, one window was open, thought it was freezing outside. We set the A/C at maximum temperature, but it didn't help. We had to sleep fully clothed.

It was nice we could use the bathroom after checking out and after climbing the mountain. The showers are super nice. The toilets not very clean. The bed and bedsheets and blanket are super nice, clean and warm.

Our room was great, everything worked and it was very clean. He helped us get bus tickets, a discount at the hot springs and even invited us to have dinner with him and his wife.

I loved my stay at this hostel. It is very conveniently located, near to the Tangkou bus station, where you can take a bus to the bottom of the mountain. The staff were very helpful in providing travel information. Great atmosphere too. All facilities were clean. Clean bedding was provided (including duvet and pillow) and lockers were available (although you need your own lock - can probably be bought in one of the shops nearby). Western toilets were available. And great value for money!

Very good but the hall was very cold. And no water during the day is not a good idea

I had a real bed, a nice mattress, I slept like a baby. Mr. Zhou, the manager, has many years working in the area, made all the arrangements for my transportation, tours without a glitch. Huangshan area is not easy to navigate, I am grateful for his assistance.

Walking distance to the bus that takes you to the mountain! The owner is a super nice guy who helped a lot with everything. The lobby/restaurant part (where the wifi is) feels like a grey cellar and is very cold.

Great helping us organise our trip to the yellow mountain and the emerald valley with transport. Would be better if there where kitchen facilities and toilet roll provided. However it is an excellent hostel with great staff and good common room everywhere.
