The owner George could not have been and more friendly and helpful! A delightful base for touring the Old Town, just on the edge so easy access by taxi, and a Tiger Leaping Gorge trek organised through the hostel.

The staff were very helpful. My boyfriend's nose started bleeding in the middle of the night and they cleaned the sheets and bed the next morning without complaints. They also gave some really good advice. The curtains on the dorm beds are a major plus. Amazing location.

A sufficient base for exploring Lijiang, just outside of the old town. The dorms are very well appointed with curtains, private electrical outlets and individual lights. There is also an ensuite toilet and shower within the dorm room. The private rooms are quite nice as well. The common area is quite small and not really conducive to meeting other travelers, however. The managers are helpful with arranging tours, tickets and transportation.

Location - while it is a bit inconvenient to drag the luggage up the steps, it's still a good location. Near, but not in, the Ancient Town. Room has a great view of the Ancient Town, and it's clean. The lighting in the room is not sufficient for those who want to read a book. Owners are friendly, helpful. While it might be novel to stay within the Ancient Town, it is better to stay just outside, becos its really difficult to navigate the labyrinth of the Ancient Town.

A small hostel. Great dorms - spacious, with curtains, ensuite bathroom and shower. Owner and some of staff speak English, and staff is super friendly and nice. No common space beside the small check-in/kitchen space.

The staff is really nice, even though they don't speak English very well, they're always willing to help. Breakfast if veeeery good! And the price is aligned with most hostels we've seen (CNY20 for an American breakfast). The only complaint is cleanliness. Our bathroom wasn't smelling very well and paper was missing from time to time.

Our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff are friendly and have a fairly good grasp of English - it is within 5minutes walk of old town and plenty of affordable restaurants nearby with picture/English menus. Wifi generally worked well and there was 24hr warm water. Only negatives: - lack of a spacious common area to meet others, there is only the reception area which is small. - approach is up a slope currently being dug up, with no lighting a bit dangerous at night to walk.

An excellent hostel. The dorm rooms were great and curtains around the bed really ensured your privacy. The owner is lovely..speaks excellent English and was incredibly helpful in enabling us to get the bus to Tiger Leaping Gorge. Would definitely stay here again!

Great dorms, with your own shower and toilet. Not much of an atmosphere - there wasn't any place to hang out with other travellers beside in the reception. One evening when we had to wait for our night train the owner got very drunk and threw a laptop at us (even though we hadn't said a word). He totalt freaked out and threw another computer, a bicycle and plants. He has a drinking problem. We didn't felt any save and left immidiatly. Wouldn't recommend it.

The hostel was super clean, with well equipped rooms. The beds were large, comfortable, and private as they had great curtains. There were also shelves, lights, hooks, and electical outlets for each bed. The staff was friendly and helpful when we had questions.
