    The Dragon Den’s hostel is a fantastic place to stay if you want to enjoy quiet village life and beautiful views. Shirley and her friend V were adorable hosts. Very friendly and helpful. I travelled with my 2 young boys there who absolutely loved that place! The athmosphere is cosy and friendly.

    Beautiful little hostel nestled in the Longji rice terraces. The hostel itself wasn't hard to find (although it helps to memorise the name of the nearby village as signposts are lacking and locals can point the way). The owner speaks excellent English and cooks fantastic food at very reasonable prices. She also provided a great step-by-step photo map of the dazhai to ping'an trek which was very easy to follow. The hostel is in a wooden building so sound does travel; I still slept well however!

    Really great place with an awesome view and great staff. No lockers, but I never felt like my things were in danger of being stolen. It’s in the perfect location, up in the rice fields and near all the best places to see.

    Beautiful place to stay in Dazhai! The staff are so friendly and so helpful. They booked everything I needed to make sure my stay went smoothly. They also took us on the hike to Ping’an! The hostel is a fair hike up from the parking lot. I got a private car from the parking lot that took me to the parking lot of the hostel/town of the hostel. In which then it’s a five minute walk. The rooms are fine and the food is good too!

    Hostel mid way to top in the rice terraces so excellent base camp for your hikes. The hostel has a restaurant that fulfills your dining needs. I went in dec and found that not many other restaurants/ hotels in the mountain were open. No lockers or locks on door and facilities didn’t feel the cleanest but I guess expected considering where we were. Nice lobby to hang out and meet others in evening and they have 3 dogs and 1 cat
