Nice family-run guesthouse near the wind and rain bridge (not in the village but on the other side of the bridge). The guesthouse has two new buildings, they moved away from old location. There is a terrace from where you can see the bridge. Rooms are basic and have tv and fan. Staff is friendly and speaks a little English. Free internet access.
They serve good food as well, Chinese food, but also western breakfast if you ask (great pancakes!).
Don't be tricked. Once you pay your entrance ticket, cross the bridge and turn right.
DO NOT stop at the hostel that comes to sight, walk to the next door hostel. Both bear the same name but I always wonder but I have the feeling that they are actually different. This better one has a covered verandah.
I stayed at the not-so-good one.
The price seems standard. RMB20 for a bed. RMB80-100 for a room with attached bathroom.
Across from where we stayed was this Chengyang Qiao Hostel. Room for two with private bath cost RMB 150. It has internet access, but eletricty was unreliable for the surrounding area. The place look shabby from the outside, but the inside is okay. It is run by the relatives of Michael Yang, owner of Dong Village Hotel.
A room for 2 with private bath and balcony over looking the river and the bridge cost RMB 150. Meals are extra, you just go into the kitchen and choose what you want to eat and they cook it for you right there. Eletricity is unreliable, which is the same for the rest of the village. The owner, Michael Yang can speak English.
We had planned on leaving very early in the fourth morning (without breakfast), therefore we paid the hotel bill in full the night before. The only other guest staying there, did the same. The next morning, the water was turned off and it was not because of power outage. We can't even brush our teeth or flush the toilet. It's just cheap!! Otherwise this would have been the most perfect stay in my entire China trip. So don't pay until you are actually leaving.
