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)

Great hostel, staff were very helpful. Would recommend.


The price is a little higher, maybe is our stay period spring festival.


Great location right in the center of the old town, 5 minutes walk from the bus stop. Grumpy but helpful staff. It has a cafe and restaurant with basic food and somewhat slow service. The outside lounge is nice and you can go upstairs for some nice views of the city. Showers are outside the rooms and nowhere to put your clothes so it can be wet and cold, but overall a nice place to stay since the location is great and it's quite cheap for Lijaing, a notoriously overpriced touristy city.
