Huxiangyi International Youth Hostel(Fenghuang)
Reviewed 28 November 2012

I found this hostel via Hostelworld. I am dissatisfied with this hostel. First, it is costly. There are many other hostels and Homestay that has the same facilities. Twin bedroom, wifi, hot showers and even had a balcony for only 50Y. Why was there such a huge price difference when both places have similar room conditions I have no idea. Second, we were given a room right beside another room that was been renovated. Woke up to loud wood scraping, drillings and voices around 8am. We would have appreciated it if the hostel arranged for us to be on another level. There were no other guests at the higher levels (3 in total). Third, we paid for laundry and found out 2 pieces of our clothes were dirty with mud stains. Seems like someone had dropped our clothes. It was raining on our stay and there was only a small sheltered area to air dry our clothes. Not sure if other hostels are the same, but this hostel change their bed sheets every 5 days and have hot showers only from 12pm- 12am, and have only squat toilets. On the plus, the staff were very friendly, they helped us book the bus ticket to zhangjiajie and gave us directions to the bus station. This hostel is very difficult to find, it is in one small alley with a very small sign. But contact the staff beforehand and they will bring you in when you reach Fenghuang.

There are many other hostels and homestays around the old town and many of which is not available on hostelworld and hostelbookers. A tip is to go there and source out on your own during low season.
