Jacky's Guest House Reviews

Jacky's Guesthouse, located in Duoyishu Village, is run by a local named Jacky plus his two workers. The host is very experienced in receiving guests who are visiting the Yuanyang Rice Terrace. Free Wi-Fi and towels are also provided to all guests. However, it is important to note that neither of the hostel's staff speak English, and Jacky himself is not around in the hostel most of the time to render assistance to guests, which may prove to be a hassle for some guests.

The Location

The hostel is situated in Duoyishu Village, which is one of the main viewpoints of the Yuanyang Rice Terraces. The hostel is located at the farthest end of the village; far away from the main road. However, the inconvenient location is compensated for by the fact that the hostel is located right at the doorstep of the rice terrace. As the weather changes sporadically at the rice terrace, having an accommodation near the rice terrace will allow guests to quickly access the rice terrace at the first break of good weather.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel only has one four-bed dorm room, which looks modern and clean. However, the room is not easily accessible and guests will have to climb up and down several flight of stairs before arriving at the room. Beds are queen-sized (larger than normal), and are extremely comfortable. Each bed also comes with its own power sockets, and there is a water kettle in the room for guests for boiling water.

There is a single bathroom cubicle ensuite within the dorm room. There are warm water showers but no shower gel or shampoo are provided. The toilet is clean, but a little cramped. The hostel also provides free sandals for guests' usage.

Common Spaces

There is a huge, open-air balcony at the top level of the hostel, overlooking the rice terraces below. This is the perfect spot for guests to view the sunrise and sunset at the rice terraces without having to venture out far into the fields, all at the comfort of the hostel.

The dining area below serves up delicious local Chinese cuisine served by none other than the owner, Jacky himself. Jacky is a great cook, and is willing to fulfill any dish requests, as long as ingredients are available.


Jacky's Guesthouse is a great hostel, both for its proximity to the rice terraces and also its reasonable prices. However, guests who need more assistance from the hostel should consider other options, due to the lack of communication and help provided by the hostel.
