Stayed in a twin room. Pros -Great location Cons -AC costs extra -Water quality -Gigantic spider in room -Food (prices, options, quality) -Woken up early every morning by loud noise from the staff. Woke us up intentionally on the last morning (8:00am) to try to sell us transport to the park exit. Even knocked on the window to ask again after we had refused several times already. Losing sleep for no reason makes the last day of hiking, and the late flight home, a lot more difficult.

Communal area is nice but the rooms and bathrooms are a bit grotty, though not terrible. Staff were helpful. Nothing much going on in the area around the hostel. Very useful as a stopover for travelling to the sister hostel in the national park but not much else. Great feature that they'll send your bags to the sister hostel for 20 RMB so you don't have to carry them around the park all day.

Staying at this hostel is the best way to experience Zhangjiajie national park! It's right in the heart of the park with two stunning viewpoints right behind the hostel. It's accessible by bus but a better route is to follow the Golden Whip Stream halfway up from the main entrance and take a left (this route is clear on maps of the park). It's a bit damp and cold at night - make sure you bring extra layers - but that's to be expected given that it's basically up a mountain!

The attitude of the managing person (Younger fellow, stationed there during April 2017) were shockingly rude for a hostel from Hostel world! During my stay, he only exhibited callousness and a mentality of a mean minded, money oriented old roadside shopkeeper. He was stuck to the heater, eating like a pig, never showed any manners not friendliness to the guests. He never even opened the door! He either needs to be replaced, or trained to be a graceful host. He does not deserve to be employed.

Alright let's be honest, the location of this hostel is pretty amazing. That being said, it's basically situated inside a cloud so expect it to be damp, cold, and unfortunately kind of mouldy/musty. The showers were very basic, but had warm water. In order to use the heater in your room at night it's ¥20. Breakfast apparently started at 7am but we weren't served until almost 8 which was annoying because we woke up early to see the park. Overall not a great place but you're there for the park.

Damp, mouldy and very cold. Staff are kind of apathetic and don't come off as friendly. If you visit, bring layers, it gets cold enough to see your breath at night. The saving grace of this hostel is its location, which gives you excellent access to the park and great viewing points. The visitors who stay here (domestic and foreign) are very friendly and obviously love the outdoors, so it's easy to find people to hike with. Try and plan your trip based on weather reports if possible.

It was comfortable enough for the days spent there. Perfect location for sure, and easier to access than expected!

The location is perfect for people who want to stay in the park overnight. The viewing platform (Wangqiaotai) nearby was the most beautiful place in the park (far away from the crowd and magnificent view). The hostel was ok. Not super clean but endurable. Very cold and our room did not have hot water (the owner gave us back 30 Yuan at least). Power loss in the night and on the next morning, so no Wifi and the phones could not be charged. Food was good and cheap.

Great location -- Pretty good atmosphere and nice staff -- Okay food -- Pretty bad bathrooms It's a little difficult to get there but once you arrive the location could not be better -- really easy to get throughout the park via free busses nearby the hostel. If you're trying to travel for cheap and want a great location this hostel is great, if you're touchy about bathroom quality (i.e. don't want to use squat toilets in the same room as the shower) I would advise getting a private room!
