    The whole area is having building work done and so a bit chaotic BUT lucine who owns the sunny guest house could not have made our stay any more enjoyable. He is such a kind big hearted and fun person and nothing is too much trouble. We think his place , the setting and he as a person are all amazing. We spent 2 days walking and then teamed up with him and a couple of French guys and spent the day driving back through the hills Kunming, stopping on route at tourist spots. Wonderful

    Lucien is a really great guy. The hostel is in a great location to see the rice terraces at sunrise. Would return!

    Lovely spot, amazing view. It was a little hard to find in the village, had to walk around for a while before seeing the sign on the side of the building. Friendly staff, English spoken and they were very helpful with our plans and sightseeing. Food grown locally as much as possible, so it was good to "eat local". We had a private room with bathroom, so it was more like a basic hotel room than a hostel. Good meals available. Highly recommend the Sunny Guest House.

    The yuanyang rice terraces are stunning and the hostel has a great vantage point on them! There are currently quite a lot of renovations going on in the village and in the hostel but the hostel ones are due to be completed within a month and the host went out of his way to compensate - upgrading my room (which was clean) and putting on a family style dinner (which was very tasty!)

    When we where staying they were renovating the place, so I'm imagining the lobby and the dining area are going to be fabulous! The guy incharge spoke good English and was very helpful. The room we stayed in was super nice: facing the rice fields :) I really recommend hiring a car and a driver to see the other terraces in the next valley. Or ask in Jacky's guesthouse (next door) for a fabulous hiking map! :)

    Such a wonderful stay in a wonderful atmosphere! Congratulation to Lucien, a lovely Chinese guy who loves helping people, sharing his experience and the Yuanyang's culture. His location is perfect because the garden has a view on the terrace, so No need to pay ¥100 for enjoying it! Sunny Guesthouse is strongly recommended :) Thank you Lucien!

    Cute guesthouse with super friendly owner and host. Make sure you have cell phone service as we had to call him when we arrived in the village to come get us otherwise there’s no way we would have found it on our own through the village. The views are amazing and the food was some of the best of our whole trip. There is A TON of remodeling being done right now though so I don’t suggest going here until it’s finished (maybe Oct. 2018 or later).

    Right in the middle of the rice terraces in an authentic village. Get a shared minivan to the guesthouse. Not marked within the village (follow signs to Jack's Guesthouse and walk past the huge construction site). Rooms were tidy and clean. Hot water and Wifi available. Restaurant limited (noodle soup for breakfast is very good). Owner is knowledgeable about trekking routes, but a little superficial, could offer more in depth advise.

    The owner neglected to inform us that the hostel is being fully renovated. So the whole property is a construction zone, all but our rooms! We would have preferred to be contacted in advance to arrange different accommodation. It looks like it will be beautiful when it's finished. But I would check before booking to see if they are finished

    The location is ok if we travelled with a knapsack only. But its not ok when we were lugging our luggage. It's far in the field and had to walk a distance on mud and animal dung. Unavoidable to get mud in the room and bathroom, making it unpleasant. We felt cheated by what we paid finally for the rooms. We paid higher in total, than what we expected the amount I will be providing this lack than satisfactory experience elsewhere as well.
