This place is remarkably hard to find- it's located in various places on Apple maps, google maps and in the real world. So it's tough. The facilities could do with some cleaning and it would be nice to have toilet paper and towels provided- at least TP. Still, a good value for the money and the staff were kind. The internet doesn't really work, but the staff were very helpful about helping with planning.

The venue one, depends on what you want. For me (and other people I met) it was perfect location, not even 5 minutes away walking from the bus terminal to go wherever you want to go in the area (Lugu Lake, Dali, Kunming). For the rest, Mama she's warm and funny, really enjoyable stay

This place seemed absolutely fine to me. I arrived late and left early. They met me at the nearby bus station and walked me to the GH (otherwise it would be a bit difficult to find). I booked my early bus (7:30) with them to Qiaotou (for Tiger Leaping Gorge) and they walked me to meet that bus as well (different location). The ensuit room (100 yuan) was large, clean, quiet with hot shower. No problem at all.

Mama Naxi's place is more like a Hotel but with the friendliness of a Homestay. It is located 5 minutes walk from the long distance bus station and approximately 10-15 minutes from the Old Town. You could also take the number 11 bus to the 'water wheels' in the old town. My room was huge, bright and modern with hot water. You can use the washer and use the roof to dry it. You can sit in the sun room on the second floor. Mama also sells bus tickets to the gorge leaving at 7.30 every day.

Mama and her husband provided the best service I have ever received. They go out of their way to make sure guests feel cared for- down to the smallest detail. They give out cookies and fruit, call you down for dinner, and say "sit over there- it's warmer". Her family dinners are amazing too and were a great way to meet people as a solo traveler. Stay with Mama!

Location is outside of the old city, at this price you can find much better hostels inside. Staff were not helpful with providing information and tips. Kind of felt like we were in their way.. We booked a double room and got a family room with huge bed in the middle and two mattresses on the floor in the corner of the room, mama naxi toled us not use the bed so we were sleeping on the floor, that was weird. Place had not atmosphere. Would never stay there again.

Very lovely family who run the place. They offer an organised shuttle bus to the tiger leaping gorge and you can keep you big bags at the hostel will you're away. You must try the family style meal (¥25) if you stay here. It was the best food we had in China and so much of it to share with other travelers.
