Cheap, Great Service, Convenient!
The experience at the hostel was great! I absolutely loved the room for the price! It was really cosy but for future reference it did get a bit damp in the night as we didn't turn on the AC. The people that run the hostel are soooo friendly and welcoming as well. They helped us in planning our trip to the mountains and when we came back late in the evening we asked if any food was still available even though it wasn't dinner hours and the lady cooked us some egg fried rice which was delicious. Although a bit difficult to find in the first place, it is fairly local and close to a bus station to take you to the mountain itself. But word of warning is that the location is the suburbs of the Tongkou town called Yingxiang. We got off at the wrong bus stop on our way back from the mountains so be aware of that. It's a 20 - 30 minute walk from the main centre of the town though, just a bit with too few shops in between the two areas.
