Hostel was a little hard to find because it's on the middle of the road. Show the bus driver the Chinese address and he will drop you there. There is a nice walk really close to the hostel where you can see a part of the avatar mountains without the crowd. Room was super cold, even thought we payed 20 RMB for the heater. The common room was also really cold. Food was good and cheap.

Hostel is in a great location in the park. Recommemded route from main Entrance: Go along the Golden Whip Stream then take a left heading towards Peacock Spreading its Tail and then finally walk up steps and hostel is on the right at the top. Hostel is a bit runned down and cold in Dec but they do have heaters under the tables in the common room to keep you warm in the evenings. And AC heaters in dorm rooms which is 20 yuan a day to keep going. I would go here again, for its location.

Staff was incredible, bonded with them despite hard language barriers. Location was perfect, it is a 2 min walk from one of the best views in the national park. Went at a very cold time of year, hostel was not warm at all but totally worth it. Great atmosphere, met a ton of awesome people every night

An excellent place to stay for a few nights if you're really wanting to get the most out of the national park. Honestly! Hiking up to it only adds to the scenery, so tie up your boots and buckle your backpacks a little tighter. I went in the main entrance, walked along Golden Whip river and then took the staircase up. Once on the road again in the upper level it was easy to flag down a bus and show them the name of the hostel. They even have sandles to wear for the shower if you forgot yours.

To stay in the park, the locations is super. It is cold, the food is ok, but not too exciting. The staff is sweet, but not every attentive. Worth staying there to get the most out of the park, for sure!

Very convenient location if you want to split the visit to the park into two easy days, the humidity takes its toll (mold) of course, but what else you can expect in such a wet forest and it was alright for one night. Food was fine and I think reasonably priced considering the location

To be fair I read other reviews and knew I was not staying at the nicest place. My other hostel misunderstood me so I was also on the mountain with none of my stuff (freezing because I didn't have warmer clothes and had no toiletries). It's way overpriced $150 + 20 to use the heater with no Towel, toilet paper, etc. It is dirty, the sheets are ripped, it's falling apart. You can stay in Wulinu beside the park for the same thing and be in a beautiful room. It is a good place to meet people!

Location: Only about 5 to 10 mins by bus from the elevator. It's located between 2 bus stops so show bus driver a picture and they will stop especially for you. Very homey having drinks and food while hosts watching television. Very damp sheets felt moist and have had a bad cold since staying hear. Short walk behind hostel to a amazing view point that is like a private view point.

Completely reccommend staying in the National Park - as you are not under the time constraints of getting the last bus back down the mountian etc. and who doesn't want to wake up in the middle of it all and avoid the crowds by being the first on the road!? Facilities here were a bit basic - but clean and totally fine. Staff spoke good English and were helpful. To get there, get up the mountain and then get the free bus - Ask to get off at WangQiaoTai (but also look out for the YHI sign).

The location of the hostel is very nice. Sadly the rooms were very shabby.
