The staff really were very helpful(one night staff person seemed like I was bothering her), but everyone else was amazing. They helped plan my trip in the park and even moved my reservation from their city hostel to the park hostel free of charge.
Stayed 3 days here. Best volunteers I ever met, great athmosphere, nothing to complain.
staff were warm and friendly, real chinese hostel and i loved the experience. helped me see the mountain and the national park and teamed me up with a great group of people throughout. thank you so much for my time there.
Fantastic, spacious hostel easily accessible from the train/bus station by local bus. Also have a sister hostel in ZJJ national park, which represents some of the cheapest accommodation in the park.
I have nothing to complain about the hostel facilities, the hostel has everything you need. You can buy the zhangjiajie map for 5 kuai, totally worth it! Then you can plan your route or be helped by a chinese girl to choose what are the best spots in zhangjiajie. But if i have to tell the truth the staff is really rude, I've been traveling in china for a while and seriously i ve never met a staff so impolite.
Clean and cozy hostel. Nice and friendly staff. Lots of information about the nationalpark. Would definately stay here again. It is a great place to meet locals and backpackers at the same time
great location in zhangjiajie city and easy to get to the train station from there. the atmosphere is nice, but the mattresses are very thin and the bunk bed frames seemed a little unstable.
Nice enviroment, good location, helpful staff, it was a nice place to stay. The bed was a little bit hard (in the 4beds room), but after mountain climbing it didnt really bothered me. :)
We had a great time here. The staff is very friendly and speaks good english. Thank you for the amazing weekend :)
The beds make a lot of noises and you should put some kind of matress. The bathrooms should have longer curtains so people dont make such a mess with the water. maybe one or two toilets for foreigners. Good staff, specially lily.
Really nice and helpful staff. Rooms and bathrooms were cleaned every day. Went during down season so I'm not sure what it's like all the time but the atmosphere was really dead besides a nice set up. No western toilet and if you need A/C you pay extra, but the location and staff are top notch. Bus station and supermarket right outside the hostel and Tianmen cable car and the train station are walkable if you have time, otherwise hop a bus. Overall, definitely recommend
Night staff don't speak much English, but there were people around during the day who could. Place is lovely and centrally located in the city. There are lots of opportunities to orchestrate tours and transportation through the front desk & the desk also has helpful cards and maps available, too.
Liked the location in the middle of the city, staff were extremely helpful when I was planning an itinerary for a few days in the region. Loved that there were loads of chill out areas there too. Would have liked if they also did breakfast, and mattress was wafer thin would probably be the only negatives, but would definitely recommend.
It's really hard to find the hotel if you go by yourself because the address it's wrong. please you should have a lift or elevator, cos tourist people always carry heavy luggage and the hotel it's in 4th floor. shared bathrooms are disgusting
It really was an enjoyable and good place to be.. go on!

Hard to find for the first time - direction how to get might be more detailed (e.g. that supermarket is localizated under a huge lion statue). Each evening there is a good english speaking staff member from whom you can get useful information about atractions and possible activities in Zhangjiajie area. Very nice design - unique atmosphere - good place for stay for few days (with at least one night in sister hostel in the national park).
A well-positioned, clean and friendly hostel that's in the heart of downtown Zhangjiajie (such as it is :-) ). Most people come to the city to climb the mountain, but if you need somewhere to stay before or after, this hostel is an excellent choice. It's in a nice traditional-looking set of buildings that also contains many restaurants, bars, shops, and a few clubs, so it's ideal for letting off steam and relaxing after a few days climbing across mountains.
bed is very hard. Location is hard to find and too many steps from the street to the room. Have no private lamp for each bed.
I have based here for my trips to Zhangjiajie park, great helpful advices on Zhangjiajie trip planning from the staffs whom are fluent in billingual chinese & english. The only minus point is the location which is at the busy pubs/ Entertainment area,, some soft noises of loud singing & musics will be heard inside room.

We met some people who were staying here. We had originally booked another hostel. Upon seeing their map compared to ours (from another hostel), we realized we needed to change our plans. It's in a great location. Bars are around the corner. Central to a big shopping area. Staff was really helpful (though English can be limited). They have a nice common area with a pool table etc. The bedroom (2 double beds) was so clean! The only thing is there aren't any Western toilets.
