Great base for exploring the mountain
The shower space was a little crowded right there with the toilet and sink. It was clean though. The water was plenty warm. Sandals and good towels were provided.
Terrific location just below where the trail up Huashan starts, good sized room, big soft bed, things like body wash and toothpaste provided, convenient store with gear and food at the hotel entrance, plenty of food options around, staff accommodated my late checkout

Good location, friendly, great value.
Not applicable to me, but if you want a really early start on the mountain you'll want to either work out a way to get out of the hotel or stay someplace else.
Great location for exploring Hua Shan as something other than a day trip. The owner is super nice, although not a ton of English is spoken. One thing to bear in mind is that you have to walk through a store to get to the rooms--once the store is closed it isn't clear how you'd get in or out. It's an easy access to the bus that takes you to the transportation center and you can leave early enough to be one of the first on the gondolas. Super good value for the small price.

Cheap place, ok for a night.
Spacious but miserable room, windows facing a wall, bathroom was a disgrace, the owner didn't speak any English (communication via translating app).
It is located on the main street of Huashan village.

Mt Huashan is a nice getaway to the mountains!
This is a resort area near the mountains. There are lots of restaurants and tourist shops. It is at the base of the walking trails but also offers bus transportation to the Tram/ gondola that takes you to the top of Mt Huashan.

Recommended to stay in
The stay at this hotel was absolutely perfect, Ms Guo Jing (郭 静) , the owner, helped me with everything (transportation, recommendations , routes etc) and was always happy to help me. The room was cozy and clean. Looking forward to go back again!!

Great place close to temple and hiking trail and free shuttle to mountain
Hard bed just like everywhere else, seems to be standard.
The staff was most helpful with a handy app on his phone that he spent the time to explain everything from the wifi connection to the free shuttle bus the the visitors center to the lift and admission prices to us! Very patient as we did not speak Chinese and most helpful!

No water on day of arrival until only late in the evening. Poor communication and attitude from the owner first trying to hide the issue esp. before we paid, then not showing much concern about it and neither offering a solution for use of toilets, shower after long trip... Smelly bathroom in 2 rooms we checked. When water returned, it was horribly murky. In addition water didn't flow in the sink. We used mineral water to brush our teeth. Room very cold at night. Overall a very disappointing experience for such a highly rated place. Other options nearby thus will not return.

The light bulb in the bathroom was not installed when i came.only when i called the attention of the owner did he realized this. The bathroom is very tiny. The water that comes out from sink faucet is not transparent clear.
The hostel doesnt have much frills. It does however caters our basic need for sleep. The bed is comfortable enough,although the mattress is a bit stiff for western standard. The AC was working right. The ticket office for Mt huashan is nearby the hostel;. Taxi ride only cost 5yuan.Going back to the hostel i used the shuttle bus from mt huashan west cable ride station and got off at the first stop. The hostel is around 10min from the stop. The owner of the hostel tried his best to be of help. They even call the taxi for me to the rail station.

Super cheap. But beware the crickets!
We got a major problem with crickets: they roamed freely in our room, and we had to chase away at least 10 of them from the room before we could fall asleep. Now, crickets are certainly not dangerous animals, but I honestly do not like to have them jumping around while I sleep. We also had problems with some bad smell, like of burned plasting, that we could smell every now and then in our room. However, when we spoke to the staff about that, they immediately solved the issue (we thought it was the A/C, apparently it was the water heater instead) All in all it could have been 7 or an 8 hadn't it been for the crickets
For those who wish to visit the mountain park, the location is awesome, a few yards away from the main gates. The place is simple, but also very cheap

Surprisingly great value for money
This hostel is right next to the bus that drops you off from Xian (go downhill). You get to the hotel by going through one of the shops. We were surprised by the hotel: it is clean and comfortable, especially for the price. The owner is very friendly but does not speak English well. With Google Translate and the help of the shop keeper he gave us good advice on how and when to start climbing Hua Shan, which was nice. I would recommend this hotel. It has no common room or anything to do, it is just the bedrooms. But as most people come to climb Hua Shan and wake up very early, that is perfect.

Cheap but surprisingly clean & with great facilities.
Room has no view. Windows open to either courtyard or corridor. Bit of privacy problem. Tap water bit murky & we need brush teeth with mineral water.
The room comes with a desktop computer besides free wifi. Plenty of restaurant around & free transportaion to Huashan Tourist Centre is just 200m away.

Great value, great location
my room smelled of cigarettes (but this didn't really bother me, so I didn't inquire about switching rooms)
Excellent location next to bus station and just down the street from the north entrance of the mountain; comfy bed; great value; friendly staff
