We stayed 4 nights at Garden Inn. And we had a superb nice room and bird view of Lijiang Ancient Town. It is amazing to have the best room in the hostel that help us to forget that I was tried during last stop in Chengdu. The owner is superb nice. The wifi service is good. The bed is King size and it is very much clean. I can say this is the best hostel I have ever stayed. The owner can speak good English and show hospitality to each guests. He is also very helpful. I would definitely come back


Allen is the man! Allen runs this place and he is really helpful, friendly and funny! anyway, the hostel itself is just 5- min walk from.the old town of Lijiang, very clean, it have a nice view oon tthe environment around the city and on the city itself, rooms are clean (showers are superb!) and it is not a big hostel but a friendly &cosy hostel indeed.


The owner is really really helpful and friendly. This place is a gem, and definitely one of the best hostels or The best hostel we've stayed in! It is extremely well thought out - huge rooms, nice beds, great and clean interiors, numerous power points that could fit any specific country's type of power plug! Nice view of the mountains and town from the corridors as well. Location wise, it is just outside of the old town - perfect to get away from the busy and noisy streets after awhile.


Awesome place to stay! Beds were comfortable, rooms were nice, staff was amazing! Would definitely recommend.


I had a lovely room and the staff are so helpful.

This is arguably the nicest hostel (private) room I have ever stayed in. Huge, cathedral ceiling, bright, large modern bathroom, extremely clean. Total bargain, better than many hotel rooms. The family ownership is very nice, and English is excellent. The only possible quibble one could have, is the common area is tiny, not much of a social interchange area, the staff seems to have future plans to improve. Great place to stay, would not hesitate to return.


Great facilities, suckets in the lockers, super clean bathrooms! Can only recommend it.
