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.


Very nice people. Very clean Place. Very pleased to have stayed there :-) Thanks to all.

I was quite pleasantly surprised by how great this hostel turned out to be - the staff are very helpful and friendly and can offer lots of info for sightseeing activities in the area. The room we stayed in was pretty spacious and even had its own balcony. The building itself is gorgeous with lots of charm - great for spending an afternoon reading and drinking coffee on the wrap-around balcony. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend to friends!


Great and cheap Hostel in Zhangjiajie. The staff is very helpful to plan trips to the National Forest Park or Tianmen mountain.


Staff was unfriendly, not very helpful. My poor chinese didn't help. They didn't have soap nor toilet paper and the aircondition (only source of heat in winter) was not included in the price. In addition, it was probably very unfriendly to the environment using a class 5 air condition without having any kind of insulation or so ever in the whole building (which is new). Good thing: own kettle in the room. Hair dryer provided which is useful. WIFI connection was poor in the room. disappointed!


Staff was very helpful and friendly. We arrived late and someone was sent to fetch us from a nearby intersection. An English-speaking volunteer helped us to plan a great route through the Zhangjiajie National Forest, and supplied us with a map (for 5 yuan). Room was comfortable and clean. Great hostel!


Most of the staff doesn't know english at all! But they really try to help as much as they can (help us to buy train tickets/with laundry)-literally came with us to buy train tickets!!!! Reallly easy to get to the national park from the hostel!


Great hostel. Nice common area, helpful staff, good travel advice. Bit difficult to find it first, however.


I was surprised with this hostel, it was much better than expected. The staff is very nice and welcoming in general and the girls who explain about the national park are just great! The rooms are big and clean and the terrace is huge with a ping pong table, pool and table soccer. I would be back for sure. Thank you for all your help!


value for money. It's on the 4th floor of the building so a bit tired if you carry a big luggage


We left our bags in the Bajie youth hostel in Zhangjiajie city before heading to the sister hostel up the mountain in the national park. The map we received from the city hostel was good and it was located close to the bus and train stations. Zhangjiajie city itself is very unpleasant, but both hostels were satisfactory.

The directions to the hostel are a bit confusing but I found it. The staff struggle with English but are helpful. The rooms are clean, but i don't like the shower over the toilet set up (only personal opinion). Getting the forest park by bus is easy from this hostel and the staff were very helpful with directions. Beds are slightly hard, and Chinese guests tend to leave dorm rooms open, which made me worry about the safety of my belongings etc.


Great value for money in downtown Zhangjiajie. Easy to get to he national park. Staff did free information sessions evey night where they woild help you plan your route around the park, or indeed any other trips you were interested in. Wouls definitely recommended.
