I've stayed here before a few years ago. I think it's a nice cosy place for a one-night stay as you're enjoying the scenic area. It snowed the night we arrived so it was cold but the rooms had heaters so I thought it was okay. It was quiet, but after a long day of walking that's all you really want. It's a short bus ride (free buses finish about 5) if you take the elevator to YJJ or it's a short walk from the top of the stairs if you walk up. Check out the two scenic spots just behind it!
When we first arrived the man on reception was pretty rude, but after check in he was a little more helpful. The location is awesome, as it's only 5 minutes walk from a scenic area. We stayed in a double room that was FREEZING and after paying 20 RMB for heating it didn't do much to warm us up. It also had a pretty dirty bathroom with a squatter toilet. Probably wouldn't stay here again, and definitely wouldn't recommend it to others.
The localization is good. Also because of that we cannot expect a great facilities and high quality standard. Like a name of the hostel says its an international hostel. I met there a lot of international people. The room was ok. The worst are bathrooms, very small and you need to take a shower almost in the place of a toilet. But if you like the mountain and you do not expect a high standard and a very clean room- this hotel is good for you
Awfull place! Staff not friendly. Nobody knows English. Photos inside hostel do not corresponde reality.

No service mind & not interested in customer. Left only 2 local women to welcome customer & only interested in drama on TV. Atmosphere not clear (twilight) & look not clean, should be improvement.

This Palace is nice directly in the park, but I never a seen so bad bathroom, not clean at all. But it cool do make a stop in the park !
We stayed in a double room and had to pay 10RMB extra for each washrag ... er ... he called it a towel. The room was quite humid and needs a new paint and a thorough cleaning. The location is good. You can walk there about 3km from the last sigths of the park. The free tourist buses run rigth in front of the hostel. The only downer is that you have no view from the hostel.
Staff only wants your money. Not even a water filter to refill your bottle, but they do have hot water out to drink. High prices & small portions on food. No cooler for beer. I paid for a 4-bed dorm, bed the room has 8 beds, split into 2 sections, with one door. So it's an 8-bed dorm. Jeez! If you can speak some Chinese, there are many local people running guesthouses in the region. Better value on rooms, much better on food. I took my meals at a local guesthouse. Wonderful food, generous people
