Location is close to Lijiang old town.Easy to find something to eat.Bed and room are fine(4 bed mixed dorm).It costs only 30 yuan and bathroom is just 5 steps away. Con : My only complain is when I checked in,a bold man at reception sold me the Lijiang old town ticket which was already used from another guest.When I presented it to Heilongtan Park(黑龙潭公园).The staff there denied me to use only the update ticket.It made me to take a long walk back to the hostel again to get the new one.


The middle-aged male (day) receptionist is very friendly and helpful. The night female one is the exact opposite...


Location is great but the place is a bit hard to find. They could add their address in chinese in hostelworld page. Atmosphere was quite cold.


The fact that it is a few minutes walk from the old city doesn't matter... The hostel is okay, but the staffs service/attitude meant we quickly moved on.


Really nice place to stay, good location next to the Old Town and close to the bus station.


Really comfortable and location was great!


Better if they can make warm the rooms for the winter. No good coffee. Rooms are big and clean-


The hostel was great. The only disappointmen was an air-conditioner. You have to pay 15 yuan for night for using it, but really it doesn't warm the room. But electric blanket is more than enough. We liked the hostel, the location is good, the atmosphere is great. Thanks!


The hostel is beautiful with a great real garden, the plants, trees. Location is very good, traffic is very convenient.

Excellent Rapport Qualité/Prix, Bon Acceuil et Service, Free Wifi et Ordinateur pour les emails, Chambre et Salle de Bains Propre et confortable avec tous les shampoings disponibles, Randonnée en Vélo pour visiter la région possible, 5 minutes de la Vieille ville pour un promenade historique. Excellent Value/Price, Hostel, Room and Bathroom clean and confortable. Good Service friendship to help foreigners to discover the city and to visit the Ancient City through Bicycle.


Location is good and the transportation is easy and convenient. Room and bathroom is clean and I love the garden!!! Would definitely recommend to others.


The environment of hostel is beautiful, with a great real garden, the plants, trees, flowers are all over. Location is very good, traffic is very convenient, across the street is the old city, and out easily. Staff is very warmly with fluent in English, to give you a satisfactory information. Room and bathroom are very clean. Worth recommending.
