We lived in a triple room with a bathroom for four days. The room is really good and the house keeping service is very nice, they keep cleaning the room and make the beds everyday even we hadn't checked out yet. The staff are really kind, the location is near the Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace so that we could see the Palace every time when we went out. We have a good stay in these four days.
A little over price for a hostel. But overall, it was ok. You can find many similar looking hostels in Tibet for a better price. The bathroom didn't smell the best (which is how most bathroom smells like in Tibet). You have to run the water for at least 15 minutes before you can have hot water. As you shower, it feels like someone is spitting at you because there is no water power what so ever. Don't use their washing machine because our clothes became out of shape after it was washed.

Wonderful experience staying here, good location,around 20 min walk to the plaza, 24hr hot water
The stuff are very friendly. And location is fine. What I amazed is the nice garden, full of the roses. Also the hostel decoration is stylish with the traditional Tibetan vernacular dwelling.
