TIP: try to get a room in the main building where the restaurant is located. they are better than the ones in the annex.
The location is amazing, totally worth to stay at least 2 nights. We pay Y80 for a double, a great value given the location.
Food: the french toast for breakfast was enough for the two of us. the sweet and sour chicken is not recommended, but everything else was great! Beer is Y10.
HOW TO GET: we took a bus from Yangshuo to Guilin (Y15), we left our bags at Guilin bus station luggage storage. Then from Guiling to Longshen (Y27) and from Longshen to Dazhai (Y9) and then walk about 40 minutes uphill, bring portable, light luggage.
For the return we got a direct minibus from Dazhai to Guilin for Y40.

they have internet, but when we were there was not working due to a storm the day before, and also a storm cut the light for a few hours while we were ther, but we still had hot water in the shower.

The highlights of this hotel are: location, food, service and value.

Location:
This location is ideal for hiking to viewpoints 1, 2 and 3 which are extremely scenic. Staying in such a small, remote village also gave us a truly authentic taste of rural life in China, which may not be the case if we stayed in one of the larger villages such as Pingan or Dazhai. If you end up staying here, try taking the small stone pathway on the way back from viewpoint #1 just before the "niutou" (pronounched "new toe") bridge. It leads down amongst the terraces and finishes directly at the front door of the hotel - a pleasant surprise for us! Note that there is no road to the village itself. We were picked up by minivan in Guilin and the owner, Joe, greeted us at Dazhai village, which is where to road from Guilin ends. From Dazhai, it’s a pleasant and scenic 45 minute hike to the hotel, located in the smaller village of Tiantouzhai. For 20-25 RMB you can get a local to carry your bag.

Food:
Everything we ate here was excellent and always freshly made in-house. We were really impressed, especially considering the remote location. A highlight was the fresh chicken hotpot which was made with a free-range organic chicken raised on the premises! Not only that but the western-style breakfast (french toast and pancakes with jam and honey, fresh eggs, coffee) was the best I have had in all of Asia (and I've been to a lot of places...)

Service:
Staying here was like staying with family. Joe is a super nice guy, and during our stay, he personally cooked for us since the rest of the staff were away for a wedding. I can only imagine the place with full staff! When we arrived we were served a tasty lunch on the front patio facing the gorgeous view. After lunch, Joe sat with us for at least an hour explaining the hiking trails and viewpoints which helped us plan our stay. We learned that Joe used to be the head of the village and therefore has a lot of knowledge about the area and the people.

Rooms:
This is not a 5-star resort, but that's not the point! The place feels like a cozy cottage and is made entirely of wood, which has a nice aroma and affords a rustic country feeling. This means that the walls are not exactly noise proof, so you might hear your neighbours if the place is full. Other than that, the room was good (heat and A/C are provided) and the bathroom was functional (hot shower). There's even satellite TV with English channels. Also, a computer with internet is available on the ground floor and there's even wifi.

At 80 RMB (about $12) we felt that we got a lot for our money. If you are looking for an authentic and affordable experience in Longji, this is it!
