the hostel is located on the edge of the area that was burned down. therefore it is in a construction site, like most of the old town. there is always a smell of burned houses in the city. the place itself is nice and cozy. the main area is heated but the rooms are not so very cold. electric blankets provided.the walls are thin and you hear absolutely everything . we stayed at the private rooms downstairs so people were walking on our heads all night.owners are friendly and helpful and food good

Totally different to any hostel i've stayed in China. This is a very special place with a familiar atmosphere, wooden furniture and tibetan decoration. Jun was really very helpful giving us some advices about Tiger Leaping Gorge trekking (we really didn't have any idea!). We followed his advices and the trekking was amazing. Food is delicious and prices are reasonable. You can try there some local specialities as well as western and korean dishes, including sweet breakfast, good coffee and wine

This is a great place to stay when you travel to Shangri La. All the staff are very nice and helpful, and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. We stayed both in a twin room and later in the dorm and all the room types were good. Location is also good because the hostel is close to both new and old town (or the remains of it). Despite the fire, Shangri La and surroundings are definitely worth visiting!

This hostel is a radiating gem in shangri la. The wooden furniture, the loghut look of the dining room, the hot showers ... It creates a homy feel. But what 's even more important, is the service. When we came back from deqin, we forgot Some valuable items. The owner and his wife's really went on a limb for us , and got all our stuff back. We could not be more greatful.

Love this hostel!! It is a beautiful tradition Tibetan home. Cozy rooms for a great price. The food is amazing and reasonably priced (try the yak burger!). The staff was also extremely helpful. They all speak English and helped us organize our tours and activities and tickets onto our next destination. The owner Jun personally drove us to our activities, got us a great deal on horse riding, and drove us to the bus station so we didn't have to get a taxi! AWESOME PLACE!

Located right at the edge of the burned down part of the old city, glad this hostel survived. Friendly Korean owner is easy to talk to and helpful. Other staff was also very helpful when we couldn't find the hostel because the old town burned down, they picked us up from the location we were at at that point. Would stay there again.

Amazing stay, beautiful clean and well decorated room, food is delicious and the location is perfect, close enough to old town yet far enough away to not hear any of the building noise. Friendly cat and mischievous rabbit make it feel more like a home then a hostel.

Amazing staff with some wonderful food in an excellent location. We had a wonderful time staying with the owner and his family. He was extremely helpful with whatever we needed and even drove us places upon request. Super warm, friendly, and the Yak burgers were excellent. I can't speak highly enough of Tavern 47

A few main points: -This place is beautiful. Old tibetan design, classic wood panelling, incredibly comfortable bed (with electric blanket in double rooms). Bar/restaurant great atmosphere. Very clean. -Family run and we were made exceptionally welcome. They helped us with local knowledge, bike rental, lift to airport. - Eat the Korean BBQ dish (I can't remember the name but it was incredible) - Good location (Old town had mainly burnt down now but we still loved Shangri La)

Perfect location,great and helpful staff and tasty food. Even with burnt old town, Shangrila is still worth a visit.

Nice cozy inn with friendly and helpful owners. Food served was good! However much of the structure was wood and can become creaky at times, especially in the night. All others are good!

Cleanest dorm room ever! Toilets and showers were super clean too. Heating blanket, personal reading lamp AND a huge socket for all electronic appliances - so convenient! Awesome noodle soop. Boss and his wife are very nice and helpful. Would come back here again :D Perhaps not in winter, but summer time was perfect: Some light rain showers and mostly blue and cloudy sky in the afternoons.

This is a great little place. Good food, friendly staff. June went out of his way to help us out and was an informed host. I found it clean and nice to hang out in. It's located close to the burnt part of old town so navigation through there can be tricky, and the street smells like sewage, though you thankfully can't smell it inside. There is an 11pm curfew and a small staff (sometimes not around because cleaning etc.). Be aware that the hostel is wooden, thus noise sensitive. I liked it here!

We really appreciated the relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the hostel. Jun and Christin made us feel very welcome from the start and nothing was ever any trouble for them. The food is fantastic - especially the yak burger! The location within the old town is great too and Jun offered us great advice on what we could do in the time we had. They were also brilliant at organising transport to and from the city for us at a very reasonable price. Our favourite hostel so far. Thank you again!
