There is no youth hostel in Zhengzhou, perhaps you can find budget hotels, such as Jinjiang Inn. It has many chain hotel in Zhengzhou and many other cities in China. The one in 197 Zhongyuan Road is well located. You take take airport bus to Zhengzhou Railway Station, 1hour20minutes. Then change to a taxi to the hotel, ten minutes.

If you don't care about the cold weather, it is ok to go to Henan in Dec. Not very sure about the show, but you could see the practice when visiting the Shaolin Temple.

Close to Luoyang Railway Station, there is a bus station where you could take tour special bus to the Shaolin Temple directly. On the other hand, if you miss the tour special bus, you also could take the coach to Dengfeng fisrtly and then transfer to Shaolin Temple easily.
