among other 3 hostel we stayed for this trips, garden inn has the cleanest room, bright wall, spotless floor. bath room in our room was pretty clean, but the toilet bowl was a little (just a little bit) stink. we got a double room right next to the street, we could hear music, people talking from the street. but it became less noisy as it gets late. staff very helpful, responding to email query, shuttle bus arrangement, and directions :)


Garden Inn is a very nice place to stay. The courtyard is great to meet people or just hang out. The staff is very helpful and speaks great English. The food is good and prices are decent. I was in a 4-bed dorm and it's was clean. Locker is small, but it fit my camera in it's bag and my laptop. The Inn is a few minutes walk away from the main entertainment area in old town, but it's still quiet at night. I would definitely stay there again. - Anna


owner is very friendly and happy to recommend trips and assist in reserving tours. hostel feels safe and has a good vibe. located within the old village, about 5-10min walk to center square. would definitely return.


Lovely staff. Wonderful garden. (I really liked that the shower/restrooms were across the garden. If you come in winter, it might be cold though.)


It is disappointed to say they have to keep up with the cleanliness. I can see a block of dust accumulated at a corner of our room. There was some empty bottles and packages which were left from pervious occupants sitting in our rooms for the entire period during our stay. The floor looked like it wasn't clean for a whole week. The shower and part of the toilet facilities needed to be updated and cleaned. Staff spoke english but was't particularly friendly.


Had a great time there with my boyfriend in a cozy double room with private bathroom. Super nice atmosphere. Staff and Hostel in general very well organized. Tasty breakfast for great value! Absolutely recommended.


Nice hostel in the center of the old city of Lijiang, very helpful staff and nice food (Western breakfast). Rooms were nice and clean. Shower and toilets outside ok, but nor very clean. Altogether a nice and recommendable hostel.


Very good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend this inn.


Great hostel with a great location on the edge of the Old Town. Within seconds you wander the old streets and no way of escaping the hundreds of shops. The staff is very helpfull and the room was nicely clean.


Very comfortable room and great value for money.


We really enjoyed our stay here. It is clean, staff were friendly and it is located right in Old Town.


We really enjoyed our stay in Garden Inn. The staff really made our stay, they were so helpful for any questions we had about the area and helping us book tickets for tiger leaping and train tickets. They really went out of their way and their English was excellent! We stayed in a 4 bed room, nice and comfy, a tad small when it was full as lockers only fit so much, but clean! Good location to the old town, they provide detailed instructions to find them, so follow them and you should be good! :)


Nice and relaxed hostel on the edge of the old town, but perfect to explore the town. Good breakfasts and nice atmosphere. My only negative point is that I chose the deluxe double room (wanting to spoil myself after two night trains in a row), but it was quite a bit run down.


Great place to stay. Staff were great and very helpful (spoke good english). Our favourite hostel so far in China.


What a nice relaxed place, with helpful staff!! Thanks guys! The Dutch family (2 adults and 2 children age 9 and 6)
