this is a nice place, located in the middle of old town lijiang, a little difficult to find as everything is there! pretty nice rooms, helpful staff, mama and papa naxi are fun! helped us book our tiger leaping gorge accommodation (stay at the half way house, amazing). worth doing their evening meal for cheap.
Loved this place, great atmosphere, friendly helpful staff and a good location! The building itself is beautiful and the hostel was great for meeting other travelers, I would definitely recommend the family dinner as well great value for money!!
Location, beds and rooms are very good. Helpful staff with very good English skills. Only the bathrooms are without any privacy and you can hear everything everywhere. But it wasn't too noisy, all other guests were considerate. I would recommend this hostel.
We had a great time. Awesome place to meet people. We loved Mama and Baba and the familiy style dinner :-)
Best hostel ever, no need to even go out in Lijiang (it's too crowded anyway)...Mama Naxi and the hostel's guests make the stay worth spending!
Like many other places in the old city, this hostel was very difficult to find given the not-very-systematic layout of the roads. I didn't find the directions very helpful. The hostel was charming though. The reception was friendly and enthusiastic about offering travel advices and the facilities were clean.
You will feel very welcome there!

Actually there is no real criticism. The staff is very helpful and friendly and speaks suitable English. The Location in the old town is perfect. There are to Mama Naxi's guest houses, one and three. We stayed in one. It was really hard to find. But therefor they offer a pick up service. The price is a bit high, but the whole old town area seems to be expensive.
This was the best hostel I've stayed in so far! Definitely try the family dinner, a great way to socialize and Mama's food is amazing!! The rooms are comfy and clean and the hostel is a very close walking distance to the center of old town. Staff are so friendly and helpful and everything is great value for money! Will definitely come back here to stay again!! Thank you Mama & Team!
Mama, Baba and the staff are fantastic. The food is generally good and the location is in a quieter part of Lijiang Old Town. I stayed here and by the reservoir, and whilst I preferred the quietness of being by the reservoir, I feel Mama's was a good place to stay if you're inclined to stay in the Old Town. Directions re: gate to enter could be clearer though.
Mama Naxi's is a solid hostel. The decor and ambience was nice, and the staff was helpful. It was easy to book a bus to Tiger Leaping Gorge. We would have paid the same price with the public bus, and this was more convenient. We stayed in a six person dorm. I was bit by a few mosquitoes and with the warm night, I found it a bit difficult to get to sleep. However, the cleanliness and comfort was better than most hostels I encountered in China.
stayed 4 nights. clean beds, power receptacles at each bed, small lockers. No aircon but it wasn't a problem. the family dinner is a must every night at 1830, meet fellow travelers and have a great home cooked dinner for cheap. Bring your own toilet paper as none is supplied and beware of the 0200 curfew. Great staff. Mama is awesome. I would definitely stay again.
Location is great - in the middle of the old town, and in a nice, relatively quiet part, as opposed to the crowded noisy areas. One small downside is that it's hard to get to especially with lots of luggage, although they provide pickup. Cute rooms, appreciated the towels, comfortable beds. Cute courtyards. Only unpleasant part of stay was battling with mosquitoes at night. Mama Naxi and her staff are warm and very helpful. They spent time to come up with an affordable tour to meet our needs.
What a wonderful stay! The staff were so patient and helpful during our time there. The rooms were comfortable, the loction was close to everything but quiet at night. Best meal we had in Lijiang was the Family syle dinner at Mama Naxi hands down. Great value.
