I think it was ok but really there are some things that could be easily improved. For example leaving toilet paper on the bathroom instead of selling it. The same with soap. Also it would be nice that when people arrived someone made them a tour and explain what the sandals they have are for (toilet is in the same place as the shower so it is somehow disgusting if you are barefoot. Finally I would improve the instructions about the different alternatives there are to get there
Great hostel. Staff was excellent, they really made an effort to have a good atmosphere, super friendly. We came in the day before our booking to leave our bags to stay on the mountain, they were fine with it and no extra charge. The girl also was wonderful in giving advice about the zhangjiajie national park. Location is great as well since its super close to the train/bus station. Pity you have to pay for heating in your room though.... Overall great though
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
