Datong is a very old city (one of the earliest capital city of China in Wei Dynasty), it is located between Beijing and Inner Mongolia, and it used to be one of the most important transportation ports in the past.
It is also a newly developed city for tourism (don't worry, it's not commercialized yet), so transportation is becoming much easier (Bus, Train, Flight)

    Our stay at the Datong flyby hostel was perfect. The rooms were very clean and the comfiest beds we’ve stayed in the whole of China! The host spoke fluent English and the coffee machine, drinks and snacks really added to the hostel. The hostel provided trip information and we booked a taxi to the grottoes through them with lovely drivers who waited for us! Would 100% stay again if we could.

    The hostel was great. Good location, not hard to find, interior was modern with various facilities and very friendly and helpful staff. It was completely empty this time of year so I even got my room upgraded to a double one. If I ever visit Datong again, I'll book this hostel again!

    This is an amazing place to stay. Angela who manages the place is just lovely! You will feel like home here. The cleanliness and facilities are just TOP! Amazing view of the city. It’s a perfect place to rest after exploring the areas of Datong. You will feel like home here. Easy to access by public transport (1CNY) and by taxi. Only small thing when you are in front of the building you don’t know witch door to enter (you can ask the hostel manager to send you a picture of the entrance)

    The nicest hostel I’ve visited in China! It’s tucked away on the 22 floor, so it’s quiet despite being on a busy corner. Big dorm room, with lockers, and everything was super clean. Nice little common area, though the place was nearly empty during my visit. The staff were super helpful, and the hostel has contacts with taxis to get you to/from attractions and the train station (if you need a lift to the train at 5am like me!) Walking distance to the old city and a few shops nearby.

    By the time i got there, they were renovating the bathrooms, not many people to hang out but that has nothing to do with the place, and the info they provide its kind of outdated. I got an upgrade cuz there was not many people at the time

    Honestly such a chilled place and the staff are so incredibly helpful! The place is a stone's throw away from multiple shopping malls and all the food you can ever want. The place was so clean and homey, I didn't want to leave.

    Fly by Knight Highrise Hostel was a great place to stay. Check-in was easy and information about where to find the hostel was nicely provided by the hostel. Overall a very pleasant stay with nice staff that also booked tours for us. Check-out was also very easy and super flexible.

    Pros: Very clean, friendly and helpful staff (family-run), comfy bed, walking-distance from walled city. Cons: Difficult to find, and a little pricier than might be expected.
