A very basic hostel. Fantastic views of the Rice Terraces and Ok food. Hostel was very noisy with very thin walls. No electricity or hot water when we arrived but eventually got a hot shower in the "bathroom" that was falling apart. Prices appeared to have more than trebled for golden week, making this hostel a very expensive option at... More

If you are visiting rice terraces at DaZhai, Dragon's Den hostel is one of the nice and affordable place to stay with English speaking front desk staff. Ask for rice terrace view rooms. We stayed at 305. Nice terrace view from the window. From Dazhai car parking lot, It takes slightly more than an hour to reach this place. But... More

This hostel is awesome. It's great, affordable, with spectacular views. The climb up from the Dazhai main village can be a pain, but no doubt is worth it. You feel like your in a traditional wood lodging. The best part is for the sunrise it's a short hike, about 15 minutes, to the top view point for the sunrise. It... More

This hostel is indeed perfect for a trip to the rice terraces, but I must warn you that it is not easy to find or access. If you plan to hike the rice terraces, staying at this hostel is a no-brainer since it is already situated very high on the terraces. Once you set up camp at the hostel, you... More

the hostel is located about 20 mins away from viewpoint number 2 and 30 min from viewpoint number 1. It is very far from viewpoint number 3, in my opinion viewpoints 1 and 2 are far better :) They also sell local dishes like bamboo meat and rice. There is a small guide book with pictures of places to help... More

We ended up in a top corner room with plenty of natural light and a great view. English speaking staff were friendly and helpful. The location in among the rice terraces was great. Food was very good, served in the nice common area. Showers were mostly cold. Be sure to hike to the nearby viewpoint up the hill. We did... More

What a special place! The hike up here from where the bus drops you in Dazhai is a sweaty 40mins but it's worth it to already be up the hill to explore the rice terraces. The views from here are amazing so even in rainy weather you can enjoy the terraces. From here you can do loads of walks to... More

The views are the main draw here. The location is good in terms of being surrounded by spectacular scenery and the closeness o the trailhead of the 3 viewing points as well as the hike to Ping'an. However, that also means it's quite far from the bus stop and requires some strenuous hiking, at least with luggage - remember to... More
