Victor is a great host and provides a wealth of information about the mountains. Its a five minute taxi ride to the zhangjiajie gate entrance from the hostel. Anyone complaining about the heat does not understand China. South of the Yangtze river there is no central heating. Everyone uses the air conditioner for heat. You have to pay 10 yuan extra for this. Its standard as electricity is expensive. The air conditioner in my room worked quite well actually and I wasnt cold.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, but the room was not that good. They don't provide towels and you need to pay if you want to use the AC (and they only turn it on at night). The location is close to both city centre and Wulingyuan Park.

First thing I did upon arrival was book a hotel room for myself somewhere else. I imagine this place is so so in the summer when it's not cold, but in the winter there is no heat on anywhere. You have to pay for heat in your room and even then they won't turn it on until 6 pm. It was 40 outside, the windows and doors were open. I don't know what that is in Celsius but it's not much warmer than freezing. The bathroom was disgusting and no tp. No WiFi in room. Guy at desk didn't speak English.

Choose this hostel if you want to stay close to the park. It's a 10 minute bus ride away from WuLingYuan entrance. Great location! And the main guy here, Victor, is of great help. He speaks good English and will give you all the info you need. They have another hostel which is located inside the park. I recommend staying here a night or two, there's a viewpoint (Bridge Viewing Terrace - WanQiaoTai) right behind the hostel and it's awesome!

The hostel is pretty much average, but in a good way. We even had a shower in our room, not in the corridor. But the best part is definitely Victor! He was SOOOOO helpful, especially when we got lost in the park. He gave us the directions to another hostel on the mountain, which we would never find without his help. Our superman!

I think this might be your only option for cheap accommodation right beside the famous mountains, and it's really not so bad. Victor is very very very very helpful and lovely, and it's worth it just to get his advice on where to go in the park. I had no problem with our room or any of the facilities with a pretty big exception of the bathroom. If there's any area to be improved upon it's here. While not terrible, definitely not up to Western standards. Otherwise, it was really perfect!!

This is an old hotel and it was pretty damp to be honest. I felt ill while I was there. The main reception guy was fantastic though. He is definitely the best thing the hostel has going for it. One tip though, if you are going to visit the mountains then check weather first. I didn't. It rained for two days solid and I saw nothing so was a wasted trip. Gutted.

If you go to the park, this is the perfect spot. The bus number two stops right at the door and brings you right to the entrance in only 10 minutes. Victor is about the only person in this town that speaks English what is a great help as there are very few Western tourists in this area what makes traveling a bit harder compared to many other parts of China. Some people mention problems with the toilets but I guess they threw paper in what you cannot do anywhere in China but there is no sign.

The hostel is ok. It is not as terrible as some suggest, but also not great. it simply needs some refurbishment. The reason to go there is Victor as he speaks English, which makes everything easier. Though he was on holiday most of the time I was there. His brother doesn't speak English and is also not very friendly. Though the two ladies that cook are. There food is o.k. as well. Though the menu is as usual badly translated.

The location was great and Victor was really helpful. I also liked the food. The hostel was really big but pretty empty so I was a bit scared to be in a room on the top floor on my own until I was joined by my roommate. There was also no toilet paper provided. Other than that I enjoyed my stay.

This is a simple chinese guesthouse that facilitates a trips to zhangjiajie perfectly. It has a perfect location and decent chinese food for like minded trekker. Victor is by and far one of the most helpful staff I have ever met. If you dont speak chinese you must stay here. His help in priceless. Thanks a lot victor.

I have very low expectations for cheap hostels. I do not need a common room, AC, wifi, food, or a nice bed. The only thing I ask is a cleanish shower. The bathroom are filled with mold and I needed to use hand sanitizer after getting out of the shower. Victor was the best, but cN get past the bathroom. I asked others and they all say the same. Beware!

I wish you could rate one staff member and not all because Victor is amazing. I was sorry to have inconvenienced the other 2 staff members I saw with my presence in their hostel. The hostel was in an incredible location 40 minutes outside Zhangjiajie but less than 5 minutes by bus to the national park. They food and vibe in Wulingyuan was great. I loved getting out of the city of Zhangjiajie. I would stay here again but something to know: the power and water are shut off during the day.

Victor was very helpful with planning my stay into the park. Very nice guy ! He gave me great advices on hikes in the park (especially ones to avoid the crowd) and also helped me out with buses/trains/etc... Thanks :)

Victor is extremely helpful and gives you excellent advice on the wulingyan park. For this alone, I would recommend this hostel. However, I'm not sure, but he seems to work solo and it can feel like you're bothering him if you ask a lot of questions, like me. Facilities are old (could do with refurbishment), and it'd be nice to have personal touches like clean towels, free tea/coffee etc, as everything is chargeable including maps and water. Beds are on the hard side too.
