There is a staff who speaks English.....and even French! This hostel prepares very good western breakfast / sandwiches. Excellent value for money because of its good location near several bus stops, with buses running in every direction in Lijiang. It's very quiet in this hostel. Great sleep every night. Best of all, there is excellent free wifi and there are more than enough power points (for charging camera & phone batteries) in every room, in the common areas and even in the garden area.

It was OK. Took 10mins for the hot water to reach the showers though. Short walk to old town and plenty of restaurants nearby. Free VPN to access restricted websites.

Helpful English-speaking staff.

The location of this hostel was fine, but almost impossible to find. I booked a dorm, but when we arrived they told us the dorms were in an entirely different place! They told us we could stay in the double, but of course those were more money. The room was fine, until halfway through the day when the toilet randomly stopped working for no reason. We actually ended up leaving and going to a different hostel because it there was no atmosphere, and barely any friendly English help.

We slept in a private room. The mattress in the bed was so hard like there wasn't one. Staff wasn't able to speak English with us. They couldn't give us some information about train ticket office and about the tour they offer. And this in a "international" youth hostel. Room was clean.

Staff were not very friendly, otherwise a good place.

The rooms were great. The location was great. The staff, however, didn't really act like they wanted our business - no knowledge of local activities and generally unhelpful. We will not stay here again.

In general the place is average. Staff are rude when we ask for two dishes with rice we were told there was no rice, much to our surprise, the staff had a banquet with more than 6portions of rice left over after they had finished their meal. The food we were given was disgusting.
