Our guide recommended Shilin over Paiyonlou as we are told the rooms are larger and cleaner. Shilin was a comfortable stay on the mountain. The double room was very small so you might consider opting for the twin room which is slightly larger and has a small balcony.

I meet a guy called Gilles from Amsterdam and a lady called Aofie from Ireland. We're all very excited especially the other two as they've been stuck in the town for 2 days waiting for the weather to clear so that they could hike ...
... city outside Huangshan is called and from the bus station it was only a 5 minute walk from my hostel. By the time I had got to my new hostel I was still undecided about whether to stay the night on Huangshan mountain, especially since all the accommodation on top of the mountain were either fully booked or ridiculously expensive. The hostel told me that this was because it was the weekend but that if I booked a tour through them the tour cost would include accommodation. ...
