Very sweet hostel. Great bar, lots of activities and good organisation with climbing the mountain. They have a brief with anyone wanting to climb mt huangshan, helping you decide on any route and logistics of everything. Clean rooms with comfortable beds, kettle and private bathrooms. Very nice group of people, very worth the money spent
I stayed here two nights while hiking the ‘Yellow Mountain’. The staff at the hostel was beyond friendly and very helpful in helping me plan out my trip up to the mountain, giving suggestions where to go and helping me book my bus and everything. Best place to go if you’re looking to do a budget trip to the ‘Yellow Mountain’, either by yourself or with company.
We stayed here for 3 nights during golden week. The hostel staff were very helpful in giving advice on and organising day trips and bus/entrance tickets for our family to visit. The packaged breakfasts were great too for ¥15 each to take on those early morning bus trips. Likewise they had a dinner menu that was reasonable priced and delicious at the end of a huge day travelling. The rooms are clean enough, private and comfortable. The harder beds can be a little difficult to get used to first night, it you get used to it. You can walk to the old town from hostel and visit some local restaurants and some antique markets, also street food vendors etc.
...which was awesome after so long in dorms. The rooms are huge, with comfy beds and private bathrooms. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and sorted a tour of local villages with no prior notice. Even though its location isn't great and it lacks the usual hostel atmosphere, it makes for an excellent base from which to explore nearby and then properly rest.
I stayed in this hostel for three nights in April (one day at the mountains, one day visiting the nearby village Hongcun and Tunxi old street and an early departure on the final morning). The hostel is a 5 minute walk from the long distance bus station which is where you get the bus to the mountains, the local villages and to go Hangzhou (amongst other places). The hostel was clean with good wifi, hot showers and English speaking staff. I was the only non-Chinese person there for my three nights but the common area is still a good place to chill. My only real complaint is the mattresses which are thin even by Chinese hostel standards. I was on the top bunk and I could see the glow of the bottom bunks light through the mattress!
had really good expectations of this hostel from the good reviews on tripadvisor. but was really disappointed. firstly, rooms were run down, especially the toilet, which had a missing bulb, and old and mouldy tiles. the heater in the room was barely sufficient for the cold day. secondly, service wasnt as expected. when the toilet clogged, the guy at the front desk merely handed us the plunger and expected us to declog on our own.. this was the same guy who was busy playing a game on his phone when we approached him for help at the front desk.. this was ALSO the same guy who we saw smoking and playing card games with his friends in the lobby area when there was clearly a no smoking sign in the hostel. location wasnt exactly the best, especially since it was raining. we had to call a cab whenever we left the hostel. would definitely recommend other hotels at this price.…
Really convenient hostel practically next door to the long-distance bus station. They will organise bus trips from the hostel to the mountain and from mountain for your home journey. Beds are very comfortable and there is a nice area downstairs to chill/have food. Will definitely recommend to friends.
We spent five nights at 'Cozy in July 2015 and really enjoyed it. The family room was perfect for our family of 2 adults and boy of 14 and daughter of 11 years. Following Shanghai and Yangzhou experiences we wanted to see a bit of the countryside of China and the great sights close to Huangshan City. This was really accomplished by the great assistance by the staff on 'Cozy and help on arranging trips to Huangshan Mts and the ancient villages Hon Cun and Xi Di. My wife had a terrible headache one day and the hostel director took me straight to the pharmacy in his own car - No charge for this. We really appreciated that, very good service. We would definitely stay there again should we go to Huangshan again.
This hostel exceeded my expectations. The staff who work there are very friendly, helpful and nice people who speak good English. Was able to book transport to Huangshan with no stress and leave our bags there while we overnighted on the mountain. The hostel looks to be actually attached to a hotel and it appears hotel rooms are being used. The rooms are certainly more like those in a hotel rather than a hostel - very spacious, good bed, TV, air con. There is a restaurant downstairs which is good value for money and served tasty food. While private rooms in hostels in China can be expensive, these were very good for the price paid. The hostel is right next to the bus station and is only a 5 minute, 1 RMB bus journey to Old Street (for me a quick visit to Old Street sufficed - it is ok, but staying there would not be a big bonus).…
Good location to bus station if arriving from Hangzhou. Easy to take bus into town for 1yuan. Male staff need patience, the lady staff much better. Restaurant and food supplies have reasonable prices. Private room is nice and bathroom good for a hostel standard. Would stay again- MUCH MUCH better overall than Ancient Town Youth Hostel if you looking for accom. We left there to come to Cozy hostel and it was the best decision made!
