Great location, close to both old and new town of Lijiang. Homely atmosphere and friendly staff. 24 hours hot filter drinking water available.


Very helpful staff. Dorms and ensuite bathroom clean and spacious. Location a little bit hard to find at first as it's down an alley/side road. Otherwise quite convenient on the southwest edge of the old town.


A good hostel which was a little quiet when I was there owing to Chinese New Year. Good staff and menu, and able to advise on travel. If you want something more central go for Mama Naxi's in the old town, which is as good but doesn't have En Suite bathrooms.


Not bad, good location, cheap bicycle hire, friendly and informative staff.


we`ve stayed at the cheapest room they offer because we just arrived that day and planned to go to tiger leaping gorge the next day. we paid 25 kuai each, and you only get what you pay for. they helped us to get to the tiger leaping gorge though.


good location, very close to the old town, but easy to find. Helpful staff. They have good bikes for rent. However, it was very, very cold (winter)


Very good hostel, the traffic is very convenient, the staff are good english, the service is very good and gave us a lot of very practical travel advice, thank you very much!


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.


everything is very well,and so kind of the boss and staff.

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.
