Big room, omfy bed, great location, helpful staff. Victor at the front desk speaks English. Walking distance to Baofeng Lake. Food available. Very hot water:) Make sure to bring tissues (no tp provided). You can easily take a bus to Wulingyuan Natl Park for 1 yuan. The pass is valid for 3 days. If you want to go to Tianmenshan you can also take 2 buses for a total of 12 yuan. Only complaint is that my toilet didn't flush, but I didn't say anything since I only stayed one night.

The Hostel is really nice and the stuff really helpfull. We ust stayed one day at the mountain and Victor ( from the reception) explained us all important sightseeing spots, so that our trip was amazing!

English speaking manager (Victor) is great, very helpful and friendly. He can help you a lot to plan your itinerary for the park. Location is also very good, short cheap bus trip to the park entrance. If you arrive late at airport or train station ask him to arrange a taxi for you - saves you the experience of getting scammed. Rooms are average, walls and windows don't insulate well - expect to be awakened by busses before 7 am. Food menu is Chinese average, affordable and good. Would stay again

This is a hostel that I would highly recommend to my friends! Located at a very good place to go to the park & lake ( both around 15 minutes by walking). Staff are very friendly! The owner kindly shared with me some tips to the park. The room was clean, the bathroom was fine, Definitely a sweet place to stay!

Zhangjiajie ...absolutely spectacular. One of the most beautiful and awe inspiring landscapes my wife and I have ever visited. Unbelievable scenery - 400m high pillars of rock in a massive canyon setting, We had a great time visiting the area and based ourselves in this hostel for 3 days. The hostel manager Victor was incredibly helpful\friendly and provided a detailed itinerary for us to follow every day based on the weather. Rooms basic, clean and good value. Highly recommended!

The Wulingyuan Zhongtian International Youth Hostel was so excellent! We really enjoyed our stay there. The staff was so helpful and really wanted our stay to be good. The man who spoke English was the best! He helped us know how to get everywhere and gave us great tips for the park. The park was so close and easy to get to as well. The hostel was very clean and if there was a problem with anything, the staff would help us right away. We loved this hostel.

The rooms are not heated and you have to pay to be able to heat. The guy at the reception is nice and helpful (where to find restaurants, tips for the park). It was the low season so nothing really to do around at night and nothing organised at the hostel. Good location to go to the park

Good hostel for the money. Be sure to buy a map of Zhangjiajie National Park from the front desk (5 yuan) because you don't get one at the ticket booth. One negative? Although there's "heat", it's very very cold in the winter! We always went to bed with hats and scarves despite the fact the heat was on full blast.

This hostel was exactly what we wanted for the short time we stayed at Zhangjiajie. Its close the the park entrance (only an 8 min bus ride) and local restaurants. The staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were fine, not heaps of space or light, the shower was basically the in the middle of the bathroom. Western toilet but no toilet paper provided but ive found that the norm in China. Y10 to use the aircon/heater. All in all id recommend staying at this place and not inside the park itself.

Staff was extremely nice and helpful both with navigating the taxi driver to the hostel and with planning tours! Our room was ok, a little humid and could have been a little cleaner. The beds were fine though. Atmosphere rated as average, but this could have been caused by the season we've been there (mid November) and our stay was short.

Room was clean, water was hot, location was convenient, staff was helpful. Better wifi access, better services, and a more fun atmosphere would make me more inclined to recommend this hostel, but for the area it's probably the best bet.

Nice staff, helpful and very friendly, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, seems like an hotel. Very close to one park (amazing one by the way), about 5 minutes if you take a bus, 20 minutes walking. I absolutely recommend this hostel.

We only ended up staying 1 night of our supposed 3, opting for a hostel in the city with better transportation links. The hostel itself was average, basic facilities but no atmosphere. A major downside for us was only 1 member of staff spoke any english, however the upside is its only a 20 min walk to one of the entrances of the park.
