Amazingly comfortable beds and fantastic price! My friends and I really enjoyed our time at this hostel and in Dali! Definitely recommend both!
Thanks to the lovely lady who welcomed us with a smile everytime we walked back into the hostel! Her staff had all gone home for spring festival so it was just her and her mother taking care of the hostel. They had to stay there all day, every day so I commend her for her spirit!
The staff was super friendly and very good in service, they are so helpful and very kind!! The rooms is clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean. I would like to stay at the hostel again if going to Dali. =D
I had an awesome stay here - the staff were super friendly and really helpful, and I felt welcome straight away. My only suggestion would be tighter security - giving everyone a key to their dorm and providing lockable spaces for valuables would be great. Thanks Lily's!
Facilities are nice, but walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. It is located in the old town, but it's on the far end and the atmosphere is not as good as other hostels in the city. Friends stayed in Five Elements hostel, which was much cooler, cheaper, and just as close to the center of old town. Owner is super nice and helpful though, which makes this a good choice. All in all a good place, but others are better.
Really great location! The hostel is located not far away from the east gate (just around 15 minutes' walk) and very close to the center of the ancient town. If you travel from Lijiang to Dali, you can ask the driver to drop you off at the ancient town. East gate is usually where they stop. Also, the hostel was very quiet in the evening. We all had very good sleep. Owner was nice. Cleanses of the bed sheets can be improved, though. Not enough plugs in the 4-bed shared dorm.
