jacky and his family were the perfect hosts. they couldn't have been more helpful in all ways. Clean rooms and the most magnificant terraces at your door in a village that is picture postcard peferct filled with very friendly people and pesky but adorable kids.

I highly recommend that place. The guesthouse is directly above the rice terraces. You have a wonderful view to the terraces. The rooms are clean and the food is excellent. Jacky and his team are very helpful and attentive. Jacky also provides guided tours to the terraces and the nearby villages. He can tell you a lot about the area,... More

Amazing location - right behind rice terraces, you can enjoy the view since you wake up from a hotel's balcony. Jacky, the owner, was extremely helpful and nice! They offer tasty home cooked dinners, feels like at home! Highly recommend this place.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my mom while we explored the beautiful rice terraces of Yuanyang. The accommodation is clean and basic, typical of a hostel. The new building probably has newer, more comfortable rooms but will cost a bit more. Book early if you come during the busier seasons (Dec - Feb). The hostel isn't the easiest... More

First and foremost, the phone number here is +86 135 2973 2170. Some friends and I had a bit of trouble finding the place in the dark and had to use google the phone number. Once we called, Jacky sent someone up to the main road to escort us down, very helpful. When we got in it was dinner time... More

Jacky is very very nice, speaks excellent English and helps with everything: arranging tours, tickets, he even cooks the chinese food! the guesthouse is not on the main road. you stop near a sign, and follow a short road to the parking, and you phone him, Jacky comes to guide you from there. The down side of this is that... More

Traveling in China can be tough sometimes, and getting around in some of the more rural areas can be challenging. Having a guest house owner that can help lead the way through unknown areas is invaluable, especially if the owner is bilingual in Chinese and English - as Jacky is. The guest rooms are enormous and incredibly clean. You won't... More

This bustling hostel was full to the brim with foreigners, so book early! Jacky is lovely and has excellent English. His cooking is SUPERB and the dishes are half the price of the other International Youth Hostel. The rooms are comfortable although there are no lockers which is my only complaint. There are two separate roof decks and the hotel... More

Stayed at Jacky's about two years ago. The location can't be beat. You have to walk through the village which can be a challenge at first, but the location on the terraces is simply stunning. We were on the second floor and so had an incredible balcony view of the terraces at all times of the day. Additionally, access to... More

Really comfortable and cozy stay. Jacky is a super nice guy willing to show the visitors the wonders of the area. The beds are comfortable and even include a heated blanket, ideal for the winter months. The breakfast are cheap, abundant and delicious. The sun rise view from the rooftop is breath taking.
