The guys who run this hostel are doing their best to make it a great place where you can enjoy your stay with helpful tips and Information. I stayed in the dorm and the first place is the bathroom when you enter it. The smell and the cleanliness of it was really bad. the shower head was broken and the little water what came out took a long time to get warm.
Very beautiful place close to the river.
The girl at the reception was incredible, she knew a lot about the city. We had to ask for towels and toilet paper for our double room...
A pleasant hostel with friendly staff who helped me a lot when planning my activities in the area.
Had a really nice hang out area in the foyer. The staff were helpful with reasonable English. Rooms were
Not a good location if you aim to explore the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park over a few days. Takes over an hour to get to Wulingyuan gate of the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, if you factor in the bus ride to the bus interchange (5-10mins), the tour bus to the Wulingyuan bus interchange (1 hour) and walk/hitch a bike up the slope to the Wulingyuan gate (3-5mins). Collect towels and toilet paper from the front desk on your own. Drainage system in the bathroom shower was somewhat slow.
Girl on reception who is learning English was really helpful. Organised my whole stay including staying at sister hotel in the park - which i would recommend. Nice common area.
GREAT HOSTEL! I would live on it. Fast and reliable wifi, rooms, common room and toilets clean and tidy. The staff was amazingly helpful all the way with all my 300 questions and pointed me in the right way every time. Same goes for the sister hostels in Wulingyuan and Yuanyuajie, I stayed in all three.
A perfectly fine hostel that gets the job done as far as a nice clean place to sleep. It is very close to the park and there are a lot of places to eat with the locals that were a lot of fun. One staff member particularly stood out, a new girl named Trista. She spoke amazing English took us out for dinner and suggested things to do and places to eat. She single highhandedly turned our stay form an average one to a great one!
Nice common room area with good wifi. Take away also available :) Rooms are basic, bit dull but, you get what you pay for. A shelf and a lamp would be good :)
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the hostel itself was welcoming. As far as common areas, there was just a lot of tables and chairs around. There was a TV room with couches and a massage chair. I'd stay there again.
This is a hostel, and people should expect it to be just that, some of the reviews of this place I find a bit hard, I had no problems, helpful staff, good value
Some staff spoke English which was nice. But some didn't so that made things a bit more difficult. But overall a good place to stay.

A good 10 or so minutes walk to the hustle of the city centre but the building is quiet and easy to find. The bathrooms could do with a better clean sometimes but the beds were comfy and you didn't have to pay extra for the air con!
English could be useful for the lady at the reception seeing the number of 为国人 that were there...

Cool rooftop garden to chill out in. Rooms were excellent, clean, good AC. Staff were fantastic in arranging things. Definitely go to sister hostel yuanjiajie in zhangjiajie national park, they will arrange permit/accommodation. Amazing experience. Rafting was so so for the price u pay. A bit kitsch.
This was a very convenient location. There was some confusion with our reservation and the internet did not work, but otherwise it was a very enjoyable stay.
Good location, helpful staff, nice hangout area with cheap beers and WIFI. Unfortunately no WIFI in the rooms. Our room was clean, the bathroom more or less. All in all a nice place to stay even though there are not too many nice restaurant options in the neighborhood.
