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

The crowning gloryof this hostel is the location. If you're coming to this area you must stay here. Great rooms with heated blankets and heaters in the dorms, and awesomely helpful staff add to the stay. Can't say enough about this place.

The easiest way to reach the rice terraces is to get someone from where you are staying to book you onto the bus from Guilin train station. You can probably contact the Dragon's Den hostel to do this for you, as they booked us the return leg of our journey. This means avoiding the touts at the train station. The... More

This is a great hostel in TianTou village just above Dazhai. It has the best location in the village for biews as from the front rooms you can not see any other man made house or structures except the terraces. The view is absolutely phenomenal. I would highly recommend you get a mountain view room on the third floor. Our... More

Coming from Xingping I wandered a lot which hotel to choose in Dazhai Mountain, not understanding exactly where the hotels where situated...I choose this hotel cause it belonged to the international youth hostel which usually is worth it.. What was my surprise when I found out at the top of the mountain that another one existed, but wasn't listed yet...... More
