We had so many problems to find it and had to walk 2 hours without anyone knowing.. I think the phone in the page is not correct so it was useless to call. We expected much more from the pictures, but aside from the yard room was not nice, bed uncomfortable and bathroom really smelly. Area is quiet and nicer than in the center, but the girl in the front desk doesn't speak any english at all.
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...
We loved it there! The staff/owners was so sweet and helpful!
