It should not be a problem! I think the office works 24 hours a day. I saw a train to Huaihua at 6am, so the station and office must be working at that time!

The station works 24 hours a day so the left luggage office should be the same.

It seems around 7pm. If you have a hotel booked in Zhangjiajie or Wulingyuan, it would be better if you contact them for a inquiry as well.
