The hostel is located just 5 mins walk from Baoguoshi bus station. I visited Leshan Big Buddha on 24 May 2014 and took a bus from Leshan Bus station to Baoguoshi bus station for RMB11.It is about an hour travel.
The hostel is very easy to find as it is located about 5 mins walking distance from Baoguoshi bus station. The Baoguoshi bus station is also beside the bus station where you took the bus to Emeishan (RMB 90 for a 2 hr bus ride to the cable car station at Lei Dong pin and return; from LeiDongpin where you can take the cable car up to the Golden Top or hike up the stairs). The hostel location is perfect for both easy access to Emeishan and travel from Leshan and Chengdu. The bus to Chengdu costs RMB 50 and took about 2 hrs. So, if you look at convenience and locality wise, this hostel is perfect for travelers to Mt Emei.
The courteous and helpful female assistant (the boss's girlfriend) gives me a very good impression of the hostel. She served us free tea when we returned from our trip to Emeishan and also when we have our meals at the hostel. The male boss who handled the reception desk spoke perfect English and gave us good advice on our trip. He looks young and enterprising.
The room is perfectly clean, spacious and well-maintained. We like the American type of toilet and the warm lighting in the room. We booked a 3 bedroom for RMB 160. I think it is cheap and well worth the money.
During our 2-day stay in the hostel, we ate most of our times at the hostel. The meals are reasonably cheap and the hostel has a very good chef. It served simple but nice meals; not salty or oily. We spent only about 50RMB for each meal (3 persons). There is a menu for you to choose your dishes. My wife and mother in law praised the chef for the delicious meals that she had cooked for us.
The hostel is designed in a perfectly western style but with a strong stint of Chinese culture. Just a perfect combination and we met a American couple who also complimented the hostel for being cheap, good meals, American toilet and clean environment.
I will definitely book the hostel again if I visit Emeishan.
