    The staff here are really lovely and helpful. Especially the lady who was there each morning who didn’t speak much English, but was always trying her best to help. The English speaking member of staff was there in person for check in. We got upgraded to a bigger room free of charge and the room was even better than we were expecting. Huge and comfortable bed. Very clean. We opted in for the 15 Yuan per person traditional Chinese breakfast which we enjoyed, great value. Thanks for a great stay!

    We where received at 7am by the manager and a few friendly cats. After a brief introduction and an offering of tea we where showed to our room which was spacious and clean, the only downside to the huge bed was the inexistence of a mattress yet comfty nevertheless. The hostel is within the old city walls and maintains the ancient style architecture and vibe. The manager spoke english and was very helpful and kind, he helped us plan our day trip to Mianshan and offered free laundry service

    This was the BEST hostel during our trip to China. Located in the heart of Pingyao Old Town, in an traditional style house, in a so authentic environment. Rooms were super clean, well equipped and traditional looking the same time. Staff was extremely helpful, they helped a lot with maps, tips for sights, places to eats, transportation etc. Even after we have checked out, were about to leave with our huge backpacks, they gave us two 0,5l water for free as it was a burning hot day. Recommended!!

    Very nice hostel. Clean and a wonderful ancient vibe. Not the place to meet people but I doubt there is anywhere in Pingyao for that.

    This is one of the most beautiful hostels you will find in China, or anywhere. It's tucked away on a little back alleyway, but close to the main South Street. It is in a very historic and traditional building full of art works, as if you were a Chinese noble of the Qing dynasty. The staff is very friendly, you can order breakfast ahead of time, and it is spotlessly clean. As I visited in low season, I was given a free room upgrade. I can't recommend it more!

    Pingyao N1 Home is just amazing. The private room was very clean and well maintained. The atmosphere is great. Also the staff is very kind and will help you with any of your necessities. The only thing I have to remark is that the only guy that speaks English was almost never available at the reception. However when he was not there they call him at the phone. But I also have to say that it was not peak season and there were very few tourists around. All things considered, I’m very happy :)

    I stayed here two nights and was happy with the accommodations. The location is perfect, the host is very friendly, the rooms are clean, and courtyard is charming. Being winter the room was a little cold and took awhile to warm up, but I imagine in the summer it would be lovely and breezy. Recommended; I’d stay again.

    Highly recommend! Really beautiful hotel and very friendly and helpful staff. If we were to come back to Pingyao we would definitely stay here again. The location is great as it's a couple of minutes walk from one of the main streets. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful, with AC (the traditional style beds may be a bit hard for some but was fine for me!).

    One of the most beautiful hostels I've stayed in! Just off one of the main shopping streets, it's peaceful and quiet. The owner was very helpful and booked a trip up to Mianshan for us. The private room was very clean and had everything we needed. If you're looking for a busy party hostel however this is not the place. But I enjoyed the change of pace! Definitely recommend!!
