Paper thin walls but good for the price. You will probably need direction on how to get there, try one of their fliers on the Wada Hostel in Guilin or check the webpage. Good views, food was just great, nearly perfect.

It is the best place I have visited in China. The views from our room were amazing. Beautiful wooden room. Very nice staff. They speak english and they are very helpful. Good chinese food for dinner. It is a very relaxing place. It is a typical wooden house,right in the middle of the mountain.

We stayed at Dazhai for two nights and loved our stay. The room was clean and simple, rudimentary bathrooms but clean! The staff at the hostel were great. They helped us plan a trek around the rice terraces and a bus to Yangshuo. They also made us a pot of local tea when we asked about it and showed us... More

Dragons Den is a peaceful friendly hostel with great Chinese food available (much more flavoursome and cheaper than Wisdom Inn's restaurant is Daozai for example). All the rooms at the front of the building have the jaw-dropping view of the rice terraces you are probably imagining. The staff are helpful and hard-working, and the guest lounge is a cozy place...

Checked out a couple of other places before this; this one had by far the comfiest beds (actually the comfiest we've had in China) and the rooms at the front have great views over the rice terraces. The rooms are small and basic but ours had a hot shower, Western toilet and AC. The walls are thin so it does... More

It is a 50min relentlessly uphill walk to this hostel. You can't take a wheely suitcase unless you pay one of the local women to carry it for you. Worth the walk! Amazing location right up the hill, fantastic views and wonderfully peaceful. Patchy Internet in the rooms but good in the lobby area. Good basic food. Many routes from... More

We stayed here because we wanted to walk from Dazai out to Ping'an the following day. It was a great base, nice rooms and a good outlook. Perfectly located for adventures who want to explore the terraces off the beaten track - but also reasonably accessible. Would recommend to anyone fit enough to climb the steps up the hill!

The rooms are very nice but with very bad acustics... Very good location. BUT I got a very bad food poison at this hostel and that is why I say: you have other choices-DONT TAKE THE RISK!!! Have a great trip...:)

It's a 40min hike up from Dazhai villiage but it was worth it. The view was amazing being on top of the mountains. The dormitory style room are full size beds and not bunks. BUt like all houses in the village, they are made of wood so its not sound proof and it gets pretty chilly at night and early... More
