How to get to Dazhai Village
Our hostel is located in Dazhai village of Longsheng, Guilin. There are 3 ways to come to Dazhai village.
1) By public bus: catch the bus to Longsheng(??) at Qin Tan bus station (?????) in Guilin. Get off at He Ping(??), walk 3 minutes towards the ticket office. Then change the bus at the office to Dazhai Village.
2) Take the bus for Dazhai Village from Guilin Train Station. Departure time is about 9:00am everyday. The bus will arrive at the Dazhai parking area. Please call us at 18278387610 in advance and have us book the seat for you.
3) Book the bus ticket from a hostel in Guilin or Yangshuo. You can receive more related information there.
We highly recommend the 2nd way!

How to get to Dragon’s Den Hostel
After you get off at the parking area of Dazhai, enter through the ticket gate, it needs a 40-mins walking to our hostel, but actually it is also walking in the rice terrace because our hostel is located at the top of the village. Follow the sign to Tian Tou Zhai ??? OR Music from Paradise ????,they are the same direction. we are the second YHA sign. If you carry a big bag probably you can pay rmb30 to the local women at the parking area, they will carry it for you also guide you to our hostel.

See you soon

Location Information

We are located in the very scenic Tiantouzhai Village, a 40 minute hike from the base of Dazhai Village. Pay close attention to the signs leading up to Tiantouzhai Village. You may be required to ask local villagers on how to get to Tiantouzhai as there are very few signage. We are also enroute to Scenic Site #2 (Music From Paradise) so keep an eye for that sign as well. You will eventually pass the main public restroom in Tiantouzhai. We are just up ahead with our HI Hostel sign hanging over the path. All signs will be in both English and Chinese.
