Good location, Close to bus station and a big supermarket. They have got a sister hostel in the forest park, and were very helpful planning our trip to the mountains. Staff in the reception did not have the english speaking scills you would expect for a hostel like that. Also negative that you had to pay 20 yuan extra to use the ac. No western toilets, and they are combined with the showers. No problem for me, but might be good to know for people who are picky with stuf like that!
Located in a wonderful old building in a nice traditional part of town near shops and restauraunts. Helpful staff, though English is limitted. Bathrooms and bedrooms are spotless and fresh (toilets are squat style) would happily have stayed here longer. They also have a branch in the park.
Went to zhangjiajie for a few days with low expectations, but they were then exceeded after day one! The hostel is right next to the train and bus station and is right on top of a supermarket. A for location. The staff helped me plan my ventures and I was able to see most of zhangjiajie national park as well as tianmen mountain. Definitely the most beautiful place I've ever seen!! Highly recommend this hostel!
Hostel really quite. Not much going on in this hostel. Hard to meet people.
Loved the hostel and the staff were always on hand and very helpful. They had no beer though which was a shame but it was ok to buy your own and sit in the various lounge areas.
If you must go to Zhangjiajie, this is your best option, but dont expect much. Cleanliness is great, and the dorms are great too, but there us zero atmosphere - literally, it feels like you're staying in an abandoned building, staff are pretty much invisible. No safes/lockers. Decent and cheap, but you'll feel a bit alienated here.
Hostel's staff are nice. The hotel is nice. Very near to public bus station, supermarket and food shops.
Step was very good and very kind. But second stairs bed was so hard and trembling. I hope to have private clothing cabinet. thank you very much.
Stayed in a private double with shared bathroom. Room and bed were big, bathroom was okay as long as you have your bathroom slippers (provided by the hostel) firmly on your feet and avoid looking into the corners... *shudder* Spent only one night here, in between a late flight into Zhangjiajie and an early bus off to Wulingyuan, but despite the friendly staff and relaxing "lodge-like" atmosphere of the common area I'm not sure I would stay here longer because gosh those bathrooms.
Very helpful staff, even went with us to book our train tickets which saved alot of time. Big supermarket close by. Big comfy double bed and nice places to sit and watch the world go by. It didn't have western toilets which wasn't ideal. Maybe they could replace a few squatter toilets with western ones. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby.
It was ok stay, though rather noisy. We stayed there two nights and on the second night were asked to change our room which was bit disturbing as we were put just next to common area and after a long day in the mountain we really needed a sleep, but common room was very very noisy. Also the showers were ok,though not very clean. Staff tried to earn extra money with everything, when we asked some guidance, and they were really eager to sell tickets to Tiamen mountain saying they can get it cheapr
value for money, great character! only request on the wish list would be a locker. so I can lock my valuables in.
Staff were really helpful. Some rooms need maintenance i.e. walls crumbling, toilet leaking.
A good hostel to stay at in Zhangjiajie city before heading to the park. Staff is very friendly and helpful for planning day trips in the local area, they even help you customize your trip plans to the needs of your group! We used the hostel to book a 20rmb/person van to go straight to the park in the morning. Many people stay directly in the park for the night, but we found that we could see things in the park and get a bus back to the city bus station for cheap each day around 4:30-5pm.
Stayed here during winter and you need to pay additional for the airconditioner (heater) in the room. The hot water is limited to 30 minutes even if there are 4 people in the room. How is it possible for 4 people to take a shower in 30 minutes?
I booked a 3 females and 2 males in the 4 person dorm. The girls got moved to some nice twin rooms but the boys in the dorm said that the beds were extremely uncomfortable. Bus stop is extremely close (look for the tiger statue) but there aren't many food choices nearby. Good rooftop garden. Towels purchased here were extremely small and thin. Staff is usually playing computer games.
Great, centrally located hostel, perfect for starting/ending your journey to Zhangjiajie mountains. Friendly, helpful staff will help plan your hiking route, and even organise transport to the base of the trail.
This is a nice looking hostel with lots of communal sitting areas. I gave it an lower rating for cleanliness because there was dirt on the walls in the room and they didn't clean the communal washroom during our stay - there was a dirty wine glass in there for 4 days. Value I didn't think was amazing either because heat is 30/per night and you need it. A lot considering the price of the rooms and everywhere else I've stayed in china included heat. Also no cafe or hot food available.
