Before we visit Lijiang we notice International Youth Hostel Lijiang was decoreation & need to move to Lao Chay YH and the staff very friendly they come to bring us to the hostel early morning.


Cooperative staff , nice infra , almost 1-2 km far frm lijiang ancient place but near by for people coming from tiger leaping or shangrila route..hostel surrounding is not so good...red light area..food is not available in hostel though many local food resto are there but for western kind of food you may need to go to nearby dicos food chain outlet almost 400 meter from hostel..hostel have lots of inhouse recreation facilities.. Wifi with VPN...overall perfect value for money! Thanks IYH lijiang


They seem to guard the entrances to Old Town aggressively, so choose your hostel location based on whether you intend on staying in Old Town all the time or not (80Y each day). This place is outside Old Town and very close to the bus stop coming from/going to railway station. Good wi-fi and working VPN, nice looking place and good facilities; staff seemed nice too. Lockers with keys provided. Personally enjoyed the calm and quiet here the most. Entrance is on an alley behind a hotel.


Nice patio inside garden next to the bedrooms, it's a good place to hang out when you really don't want to go to bed 😉 Big shout out to the staff guy in the blue vest wearing glasses! He is so funny and super helpful! And you can tell him jokes and he'll genuinely laugh to them! 😜😄
