Welcome to our hostel

Located in the territory of Heping Town, the southeast of Longsheng County, Guilin City, Guangxi, there is a large-scale terrace group, like chain like belt, winding from foot to the top of the mountain; small hill as winkle, big mountain as tower, of which, layer upon layer, scattered high and low. Their lines are compared to the flowing clouds and running water, unrestrained and smooth; their majestic scale is spectacular and magnificent, which earns a reputation of "The Crown of World's Terrace". It is Longji Terrace. Longji Terrace is 27 kilometers away from Longsheng County (about one hour drive) and 80 kilometers from Guilin City. The tourism area has a total of 66 square kilometers and its location altitude ranges from 300 meters to 1100 meters. The slope gradient concentrates on between 26—35 degree, among which the biggest one is 50 degree. Though the terrace is very common in the mountain area of Southern China, the scale of Longji Terrace as such is truly rare. Longji Terrace is started building in Yuan Dynasty and finished in the early age of Qing Dynasty which has been more than 650 years long up to the date. 'LongJi International Youth Hostel' was built in 2004, located in Ping'an village which has 700 up population having a same family name “Liao” and is of Zhuang nationality. Join us! Here you can always have an unexpected pleasure.

Accueil minimal. Toilettes bouchées et pas réparées malgré notre demande. Donc salle de bain inutilisable. Nourriture excellente, chambre agréable et bien chauffée. L'hôtel est un des plus près de l'arrêt des bus.

A really lovely place. The owners were so kind and give you any information. We decided to stay in Ping'An because we did an trekking from Dazhai terraces till Ping'An (8 hours including photos at all view points and lunch). It was gorgeous! I absolutely recommend it.

We were supposed to stay there for two nights, but right at the time of our arrival we decided we would only stay 24 hours. The main reason? It was winter and the hostel did not provide us with any kind of central heating or air conditioner. It was colder there than outdoors. The idea of having a shower or just moving from one side of the bed to another was a torture. I don't know about this place in other times of the year but I would never recommend to stay there in winter. The whole town in general was been built-up (guess they were preparing for the high season in May)but the idea of not finding hordes of tourist was quite tempting.

In die Gegend passendes, rustikales Holzhaus. Hellhörige Konstruktion, doch wenn die Gäste rücksichtsvoll sind, hält sich der Lärmpegel in Grenzen. Am hauseigenen Internetcomputer spielten oft stundenlang irgendwelche einheimische Kinder. Ich habe dies vor Ort beanstandet.
