    Ask for helpI had a nightmare of a time getting to the hotel because it was after 5pm. Make sure to ask the hostel the easiest way to get there from whenever you are coming in. I recommend asking before you book train tickets as I went to the worst possible station. Other than getting there, it was 100% worth it. Views were amazing, the ladies were all nice, food was yummy, and very helpful with hiking. I would definitely go back now that I know how to get there!

    Love here! Friendly and Cozy Stay. I don't think I could ask for more for the price I pay. ”

    I just booked this at the moment when I was standing in front of their doors. The staff told me I could book it cheaper online, later they even told me which site was the cheapest to book from. I booked the wrong date when my phone was running out of battery. They helped me change the dates. Staff are very helpful and friendly. One of the staff even asked to hike with me! The visitors staying here were wonderful and nice too. Hostel provided drinking water, towels, slippers, umbrella in case of rain, and hot shower but no lockers. They have 2 dogs and a cat. If you are early enough the dogs will lead you the way to #1 spot! So sweet! :) Cons: They've upgraded the room I am staying however the toilet door couldn't be locked. If it is some other rooms it'd be ok but it's actually a mixed room. How can I use it with stranger guys in the same room? This hostel is located quite far walking distance from the gate of rice terrace. It takes hours of search&hike to get there.

    Dorms were very good value for money, location is outstanding, and the cook is good. Staff is English speaking and by far more welcoming than what is usually the case in China. It is of course a walk up the hill to the hostel, but they provide very reliable indications via e-mail.

    Nice hostel, located in the terraces. Contact the place before arriving or it will be really hard to find. Shirley will help you find it. During your stay, she'll help you with everything you need. Only one of the staff that speaks english. It was low season so not everything in the menu was available

    The hostel itself was converted from a traditional wooden house. It located quite high at a valley of the rice terrace, therefore the view from our room was amazing. The staffs were very helpful. The room is tidy enough with hot shower. The only problem was there wasn't enough indication along the road when we hiked up. It took us a long time to find the hostel.

    excellent! the crew there treated me like family, in a good way of course. sharing genuine local food, friendly introducing things and scenes. something need to be noticed are: it takes abt 30 mins hike from the parking lot. and also since it's a wood building, might hear, or be heard of some sounds.

    Amazing spot looking out over the terraces.”

    We stayed in the terrace view rooms which were great - neat and tidy with our own bathroom. The view was amazing!! The hostel itself is a traditional building which makes the experience all the more memorable. The common room on the ground floor is perfect for having a tea and looking out over the terraces. Note that there is no road access to the hostel so be prepared to hike for 40 minutes or there is an option to get a 4wd up the rough access road for 120 RMB which was perfect for us as it was pouring with rain when we arrived. An amazing spot, highly recommended!

    Nice hostel right in the middle of the rice terraces. Beautiful location, possibility to eat there (but not much choice. Much better to go to the golden dragon, just above), nice and friendly personal. The dorms are nice, ask to be put in the ones with the (amazing!) view, they don't cost more and it's beautiful to wake up with the terraces just in front of you! Cosy lounge area downstairs. It is a 45 minute walk from Dazhai, just follow the "Tian Tou village" signs. Be also warned that quite often the hostel doesn't have water or electricity until evening!

    The original wood building is amazing, and it's just what we want! The staff here is welcoming and helpful. Their big smiles made us feel like home. Once we lost in the half-way, we called for help and he succeeded showing the right way to the hostel. The scenery here is very brilliant, deserving the 40-minute walking upward.

    The room is a bit cramped but the view of the rice terraces when windows are opened is really awesome. The bathroom is small and dark and there is no hot water from the faucet (but there hot water from the shower). The hostel is located high up in the terraces at Tiantou Village. Breakfast ordered took a long time to be served.
