Ziyu Binguan (Purple Jade Hotel): Good Downtown Budget Hotel

My friends and I were there on 30/4, the day before May holiday week. We got a triple room with aircon and ensuite for 160 RMB, including Chinese buffet breakfast! Since the 3rd bed was mattress on top of mattress, we managed to sleep 4 in the room, 40 RMB/person. Not bad considering that Feitian Binguan at the train station was 35 RMB/person for a 4-bed room with no ensuite. I think twin with ensuite would cost around 90 to 100 RMB depending on your bargaining skills, twin without ensuite would be 60 RMB.
It's walking distance to the 9 Dragons Screen and Huayan Temple.

Hotel is smack in the middle of town (instead of being stuck out at the train station, ugh!) with good public transport links.
Originating less than a street away is bus 10 which runs directly to Yungang Grottoes. Alternatively take bus 4 (1 RMB) to Xinkaili then change to bus 3 (1.5 RMB) to get to Yungang Grottoes.

FEITIAN BINGUAN Hostel: Cheap accomodation is quite rare in Datong

Despite offering some amazing cultural and historical sights, Datong is not that famous for tourists, so there is no huge number of places to stay.
We arrived in the dark with heavy snowfall and missed the Hostel right opposite to the trainstation.
We first stayed in a more expensive hotel on the main road for 150 Kuai a doubleroom (for Datong quite expensive)-sorry donĀ“t remeber the name.

The next day we changed to the FEITIAN BINGUAN, which I mentioned is opposite to the trainstation on left side of the suare. They charge 40 Kuai for dormitory. Facilities are ok, toilets in Chinese style.
