We really enjoyed our stay at Zhou Ma's homestay, Ke Zhu and Ama are awesome! They both try their hardest to learn and speak a little english and are always nice and happy. Ama prepared lovely homecooked meals every day. The house is quite far from the park, so you really have to rely on the transfer service of Khe...

This was certainly one of the highlights of our vacation. The layback vibe was wonderfull. Zuma's mother is a delight, you will feel right at home. Her hospitality and cooking will surely win you over ☺

We stayed at Zhuo Ma's homestay for two nights in June and thorough enjoyed our stay. Zhuo Ma, it appears, doesn't live at the home, but her mother and other family members do. Zhuo Ma's mother - "Ama" - was exceptionally welcoming and went out of her way to make us comfortable in her home. Even though she spoke little...

I have had many home stay experiences in China, including the Tibetan part, and Zhuo Ma has been the worst. Though it is appreciable in the Jiouzhaigou area as it is far from the touristic area, Zhuo Ma is not welcoming at all!!!! Do prefer the youth hostels in Penfeng, where you will find helpful and nice people. The purpose...

After making a clear plan with the woman from Zhuo Ma, I flew to Jiuzhai airport, and explained to the shared van driver to drop me off at a particular intersection as instructed by the person from Zhuo Ma. From there I was supposed to call Zhuo Ma... but their phone was off. I stood at the intersection AS INSTRUCTED...

Having lived for a whole year in Shanghai, last June - 2014 - I decided it was time to regain and to nourish my relationship with Mother Nature. Where else if not in the 'Eden of China'? Jiuzhaigou, here I come. When the bus from Chengdu entered the 'Village' I was puzzled: buses, cars, people (a lot!), fancy hotels. Not...

We were really looking forward to experiencing a real Tibetan stay but this place was an enormous disappointment. We suspect that the many years of being recommended by Lonely Planet has eroded the authenticity of this home stay. This is pretty much a hostel, there is no real actual contact with the 'staff' beyond check-in and check-out procedures and trip...

Beautiful house and ideal for a 2 night short stay to go on a full day exploration of the park (leave before 6.30 am though unless you want to be stuck in the traffic jam). Yummy food solely to be taken within your group of foreigners and not together with all family members - that is what you can get...

Relaxing place to stay away from the main Jiuzhaiguo madness. Beautiful village and nearby hills to explore on foot. Family is friendly and each family member has their own roles and responsibilities, service provision could step up a notch. Food was delicious, however, more variety could be provided. We got the same breakfast and dinner 3 days in a row....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Zhuo Ma's Jiuzhaigou Home Stay is the Lonely Planet and Rough Guide top choices for Jiuzhaigou accommodation. It is located in the beautiful Shang Si Zhai Valley which is 15km from the park entrance (free transfers provided) where you will see local Tibetans go about their daily life, herding yak and goats as well as going on pilgrimages around our sacred mountains. Zhuo Ma runs the home stay with her mother (Ama) and brothers. They share their time between the home stay and their A Bu Lu Zi Tibetan Restaurant and between them will make sure you have a great stay! There is 24hrs hot water and a western toilet in the home stay. It is a traditional Tibetan home so there are no en-suite bathrooms. There is one bathroom on the ground floor of the home as well as two outhouse toilets, one with a solar heated hot shower. They do everything they can to make your stay comfortable but please note that this is a home stay in a beautiful, traditional Tibetan valley, not a hotel. ... more   less

“Rooms were ok, but I would advise bringing ear plugs … you could hear dogs barking at night, chickens, birds, etc. If you don’t have earplugs the sounds from the animals will keep you awake!”
