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.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November and really enjoyed our stay here. The roof top terrace gives you amazing views of the rice terraces below, very convenient for staggering out of bed to watch the sunrise. The rooms are basic, but nice enough. The bed was comfortable with nice thick blankets and an electric blanket to keep you... More

Jacky's guesthouse lives up to it's reputation. The location is indeed at the edge of the rice terraces and (at least at this time of the year) quite easy to reach. Just be sure to know where to go before you arrive in the village. The rooms are clean and spacious and you have access to the rooftop from where... More

This review is a bit late. My fiance and I stayed at Jacky's back in January 2014. At the time I had to email (jackyguesthouse@gmail.com) /call Jacky directly to book. The guesthouse is somewhat hard to find but Jacky arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the Xin Jie bus station for 100rmb. The road does not go... More
