The view's from the patio over the village and terraces are absolutely mindblowing. The accommodation standard in the area seems to be rather simple in general, so while it's no luxury Jacky's place is really good, clean, and well-kept. The food is lovely and Jacky will help you with arranging trips in the surrounding areas, or anything really. You can...

The room comes with ensuite bathroom and the single bed has an electric blanket for use during cold nights. The room has an electric kettle for making hot...

Everything you read about Jacky in other travelers' reviews is true. He's extremely friendly and helpful, speaks excellent English and is a great photographer to boot. We spent 3 nights and 2 full days at Jacky's. The first days we did a lovely hike from ShengCun to Quan Fu Zhaung village, doubling back to Bada for an unspectacular sunset, but...

A few days before our arrival we contacted Jacky about the travelling possibilities to the guesthouse. He was very quick in responding and very helpfull. After our arrival we had a delicious diner at the guesthouse. The room was basic, but that is what we expected, because it is far away from the big cities. We only stayed for one...

Jacky came and pick-us up at the Vietnamese border and took us to his guest house. He was very kind and helpful all the way, with very useful tips, and he speaks a perfect english. The guest house is right in the middle of the rice terraces, and the view is magnificent. It is located in a small village where...

Jacky is a fantastic host. He was, among other things, my translator and fixer. He introduced me to an ethnic family who were also incredibly welcoming. Jacky's place has awesome views. Would recommend!

I stayed with Jacky in January and had an amazing experience in Yuanyang. Jacky agreed to travel and pick us up from Kunming airport and drive us back to his home(7hour car journey, for a fee). The cloud show did not disappoint, and Jacky's help in translating was excellent. Definitely the best hostel in Yuanyang, as it was right in...

I traveled to Yuanyang in January 2016 for a university project, creating a short documentary on the area with two fellow students, who also produced independent work. Jacky’s was the perfect guesthouse as a home base for our projects, in so many ways. The location was excellent, close to Duoyishu and Bada platforms for sunset and sunrise, and the Hani...

As I sit on the porch outside my room in Jacky's Guesthouse waiting for the sun to rise and the mist to lift from the incredible view at my feet,it's the man I want to praise. I had read the reviews and understood Jacky was very helpful but for me he was a SAVIOR. It was only when a policeman...
