A social hostel/hotel for backpackers, couples, and groups
No 1 Duan Xiang Xi Da Jie ,
This social hostel in the heart of Old Town Pingyao is a great option. The staff is very friendly and makes sure that all of the guests are having a great time. The hostel is centered around a beautiful traditional courtyard in the middle of the building.
Various room types are available, from dorm bunks all the way up to more luxurious private rooms. Some of the private rooms feature traditional Kang style beds, which are essentially large beds that take up almost the entire room, and have a small table set in the middle of them. Ensuite bathrooms are available with some of the rooms, and the facilities are modern and clean.
The hostel provides great meals as well as other helpful tidbits of information (in English). They can also help arrange onward transportation, which is great because the trains here can be a bit tricky. The meals, the courtyard, and other common areas provide a great spot for guests to mingle and discuss their travel plans.
Wi-Fi, air conditioning, parking, luggage storage, restaurant and bar, TVs, hot water, laundry service, and more are also on the list of amenities.
Guests leaving reviews give high marks for the friendly staff, perfect location, and cleanliness.
