    Very nice staff, with excellent english language (the owners are british and do their best to give western travelers a feeling of being home) and located in a quiet area of Dali. Has a stove in the common area and a bed heating in the rooms, so no need to wear a jacket indoors as everywhere else in China. It was the best hostel during our stay in China!
