The hostel was really hard to find. Is an International Hostel and there do not speak english, even a word! Was really hard make the check in or try to get information of the city. They really need learn a few words in english, at least the meaning of the word passport or tomorrow.
A decent hostel in the city centre. They can help you book a room in their sister hostel in the middle of Zhangjiajie National Park as well

The most frequently working receptionist was a surly older woman. The hostel was practically empty during the Spring Festival. Still, despite that small work load, one of the two beds in my private room smelled really bad, no towels were provided, the heater had the wattage of a toaster, and the tv was broken. Security guard left his post after we left our luggage with him. I came back while he was gone and just took my bags.
Although the staff did not speak much English, they were friendly enough. For Zhangjiajie, I think the price is very good- however, we did arrive during the off-season. Clean facilities, the lounge is nice and free computer and internet usage make this hostel a pleasant stay
Me and 6 other friends went to Zhangjiajie on Saturday and Sunday and just stayed one night here. For what we wanted it was perfect. Cheap, warm, and a nice atmosphere. The hostel reception had a pretty nice lobby too but did not get to spend too much time there, and the lady working there spoke really good English. Just so you know, It is about a 15Y ride from the train station, so don't let any taxi drivers try and rip you off for about 50 yuan I think they asked for at first.
Very good staff but for wifi cannot use in room

The staff is quite helpful and speaks English (which is great since nobody speaks English in Zjj).Though, the first day when we got there, I asked for help, they helped me but I am not sure they gave me the best advices. For instance, they would only tell me the path to take in our visit of the national park for which we would have to pay, even though we were going there to hike. They would also want to make us take their package without telling us that we have a student discount (half price).
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.
