Hostel is located near Hongqiao ( Rainbow Bridge ) the busiest point in FengHuang. We were given Room 103 with an excellent view but it is very noisy, music stopped at 2330 but night food hawkers continued until early morning. The noise started next morning before 7 am with huge group arrivals with guides using microphone. Please take note that... More

The location of the hostel was reasonably good, right on the river front, but this meant that it could only be reached by foot and was hard to find. We had not booked a room and because the receptionist did not speak very good English, we ended up paying dorm rates for a private double room. Although this was very... More

We spent 2days/1 night in Fenghuang. The service was great, they came to pick us up and were helpful the entire time. We slept in a room on the third floor, which had a small window that had a very nice view. Only thing was, because of the humidity, it did not smell great (smell from the toilets) in the... More

Fenghuang has plenty of accommodations at reasonable prices - avoid this one at at all cost: - staff is rude at best : at our arrival the staff at reception ignored us even when we called her out, too busy with a computer game - staff is unhelpful, unwilling to give information to customers and does not speak English -...

This place is in a good location in Fenghuang Old Town. Staff were quite nice and could speak a little English. The room I got was fine, but wifi signal was a little weak in the room. The water takes a long time to get hot and isn't very hot in the end (seems to be the norm in rural... More

The room they gave us is SO NOISY that you feel you're sleeping in a disco. This music-noise from outside keeps on going till 11.30 at night. At 7.00am we were awoken by the deafening tourist-guide speakers. The room was FULL of mosquitos when we arrived, the blankets were dirty with suspiciously yellowish stains and broken (we asked them to... More
