The first night i was in a beautiful single room. But in the morning the noise from the street was almost deafening! However, at night it was very peaceful. And the courtyards look beautiful at night with the lanterns. And there were a few other travellers sitting out there so it's a good place to meet people. As for my second night, i had booked a twin for me and a friend. They had messed up the booking and tried to get us to share a bed. But after we complained they gave us a dorm room.
This hostel is directly in the old town center. Although we arrived very early, at half past six, the staff was welcoming. We could wait in the lounge, with a unfortunately poor kicker, but very comfy couches and sleep a little. We were accompanied by the staff through a few yards and big dorm with locker, bath and toilet. The bath is not very knew, but it is ok. We could use the washing service, which was very quick and fine. the reception also helped us calling a taxi for next morning.
this was a great hostel! the beds were the traditional style-very big and cool, but a bit hard if you are sensitive. good location, quiet, hot hot water in he shower. staff was helpful, but they aren't there in the morning, so if you need to leave or arrive early, you will find no one there until 7am. check out the night before you leave to get your deposit back.
Great location and super cheap beer with good food. Bed uncomfortable.
hostel is well situated and a good value, be wary of street noise though, and room was very warm at night.
This hostel was very beautiful and authentic; the staff were nice and helpful. The location is also ideal. The only two problems I had were with the food and bathroom; the bathroom was a little dirty, and the food was awful. That being said, this hotel is a great value for the money; I will definitely choose this hostel again, if I return to Pingyao.
The 20yuan dorm is what you would expect for the price (beds not so great, shared shower neither), but it's a great experience to spend a night in a traditional house in Pingyao in the middle of the old city!
