I won't say anything new here. This is an excellent hostel, and indeed, the restaurant across, Meishi Renjia, is a great place to eat (you won't find such quality of cooking, variety of choices or such low prices later, on the mountain). We spent one night in a twin room with ensuite at a discount (member) price Y117. The room was perfectly adequate, the air-con heated the room sufficiently. The bathroom facilities were fairly new, towels and liquid soap were provided.
Just like we hoped, the staff was competent and helpful. They made arrangements for the transport to the Huangshan mountain. They had up-to-date information on which parts of the park were closed, and were able to book dorm beds on top of the mountain for the lowest price available (the prices we saw later on the top were higher). The staff also sells tickets to long-distance buses, with pickup at the hostel. The system of selling bus tickets and hotel rooms by other hotels and private tour guides is universal throughout the mountain, so it is safe ans secure to pay beforehand.
