Nice public balcony with good views. Service is friendly. Food at the cafe is nice. Room is clean but toilet facilities can be improved. Will be good if clothe hangers are provided in the room.

The location of the halfway house was great. Right in front of the mountains and easily connects to the path on the way down. The service was good, they had an English menu and spoke some English. Very friendly and kind. The room is standard but cozy with a beautiful view. The bed was comfy and clean. The air is so cool and nice that having no AC is not a problem. We slept with the balcony opened and had no issue. I definitely recommend the room to anyone doing the hike. It was breathtaking view that you can’t experience anywhere else.

Great GH on the hiking trail in Tigerleaping gorge. We had so much fun with the Korean travel group and the spontaneous flute concert! Rooms are clean, food was good and all staff was very nice. Communication in English was also very good and helpful. The GH is clearly marked on the treck and easy to find For those who want to hike the upper treck (highly recommended!) try to arrange transport directly to the 28bends (28拐 / er shi ba guai). We took the shuttle bus to the tiger leaping gorge scenic spot but it drops you off at a big viewing platform on the street and far from the hiking trail. We ended up walking by the street and getting a ride with a local woman passing us

Adored our stay at the guesthouse. We had a lovely private room with a balcony. Food is good and reasonably priced. Lovely view from the bar upstairs. Will 100% return!

Has its reputation for a reason, it’s a pretty place. Guy at the reception and bar spoke good English, room was comfy and not too cold at night. Unfortunately (As of January 2024) they have massive construction going on, which really killed the vibe. Better avoid until they are done.
