The room was very dusty everywhere and there were used tissues under the bed. A/C stopped working in the middle of the night. Corridors and stairs were too dark. If it wasn't for Victor we would have struggled a lot in Wulingyuan. Thanks for your help Victor!

It was an okay hostel with convenient transportation to the national park (although the public bus has no set schedule). Victor was incredibly helpful with his advice on hiking in the park, but the other staff were considerably less so. The place was clean.

Wulingyuan international youth hostel was a good experience for me. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. The dorm wasn't messy but was kind of loud in the morning because you can hear all the cars honking. Other than that, it was great.

I had a very comfortable stay at Wulingyuan. Not the best atmosphere if it's a rainy day and you can't go hiking. However, I had a great room and the girl at the front desk was amazingly helpful . Great location for getting to the park as well.

Victor was an excellent host. He offered individualized advice to any traveler depending on what they wanted to do. He speaks English well and also likes to hang out with people in the lower level common area. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing too special. The common area sells water and cheap beer and is a good place to hang out with other guests.

I would highly recommend staying at this hostel! Victor (the guy that runs it) is awesome and extremely helpful! The hostel is in a great location, it's an easy walk to the lake and very close to the park. Facilities wise, nothing to complain about for the price. Happy travels!

The hostel is located close to the park entrance and the cute, touristic city of Wulingyuan. Viktor helps everyone out in planning their trips through the park, which has made my stay awesome. Facilities are good and the beds are very comfortable. Tip: spend one night in a hostel inside the park itself and marvel at the sunset and sunrise. Unforgettable!

I'm always a bit suspicous when reviews focus so much on one employee, but in this case I have to say - Victor really is great! He is a great source of knowledge and much more helpful than his job description requires. The hostel itself is also good. Our group hat 3 twins, all facing the road so it was noisy (esp. early in the morning), but the rooms were clean, with enough space to fit the luggage, and the shower was great! There are shops and restaurants close by, so it's very convenient.

Victor was very helpful with giving hiking routes and advice about the park in general! Super nice guy. Hostel conditions were expected with the price for a room so nothing to complain about! Great location to get a head start on the day.

Good hostel, great location. Plenty of taxis driving on the street to take you to the park. Victor is the best part of this hostel. He knows the park so well and is so helpful. The hostel didn't provide toilet paper. I thought that was weird and unreasonable. Good food for a hostel too.

We had a great experience here - it was a quick trip for the weekend, and we really wanted to get into the park right away after getting off a night train. Victor speaks excellent English, and was very helpful, he gave us great advice for the first rainy day, and then what do the next day. The hostel has an excellent location, walking distance from the park gate. We got lost in the park the last day and Victor helped us make our train with minutes to spare - Thank you so much!

Lovely staff with very helpful advice. Rooms were fine, quite noisy in the morning with noise from the road. Only improvement is to get heating in the dining room!

We were so pleased with our entire stay. The place felt like a home away from home and made our great trip even better. Really glad we chose this centrally located place to see the sights out of.

We had a very nice stay at the Wulingyuan hostel. Victor is a very helpful guy, on Sunday he guided us through the park together with some other foreigners. The location of the hostel is perfect, you can reach everything within some minutes. All in all I can really recommend this hostel.

There was a nice hostel with very polite and helpful staff. I just wish they would set up a system so that late-night people like myself can get in without waking the staff.

Victor... what a guy! After only spending 3 nights there I feel like we made a lifelong friend. You will NOT find a better hostel host. The hostel is on a really noisy street but that is the only downfall. He has been to the park about 50 times and knows everything about it. Wifi is only in the lobby and you have to pay for heat in the dorm rooms.

Hi joseph thanks a lot,and welcome to here next time.

This is a great place to stay if you are going to the national park. It is close enough that you can walk to the entrance. Victor is very helpful and will help you plan your trip and find the hostel, etc. You do have to pay for the heaters - 10Y a night which was not expected. The rooms are nice and the hostel is a great choice. Know that it is about an hour bus ride outside the city but it's perfect for the park.
