Hardly ever saw the owner but she was very nice and really helpful when we could get a hold of her. Little security but it was enough - nobody is stealing your stuff here. Stayed in a private room. Minor issues with facilities (broken TV, leaky ceiling, burnt out light) but the place was too lovely to really care.
Good location, especially quiet, because the city center can be reaaally noisy. Maybe our timing was bad, we seemed the only guests, there was construction going on and the woman at the front desk had just come back the day before or something and wasn't quite sure on some stuff about the hostel, the tours or Lijiang. The 3 person room we stayed in was ok to get a good nights sleep and charge the phones, but low ceiling, we hit our heads a few times. Also, no door at all for the bathroom...
This hostel was more a convenient hotel-like establishment. The rooms were spacious, clean, well-equipped with big beds and a nice bathroom. It actually lies in a newly constructed part of the "old town" with 5 minutes walking into the hostoric old-town - which is actually a blessing, because it's silent at night and not so super busy like the extremely touristic nightlife of lijiang. The staff speaks english and is great help with information about further trips Luggage deposit is possible.
