Basic but nice hostel located just inside the Old Town. Makes for a perfect location to walk around or take a bus to the monastery. Electric blankets were provided but it was summer so not needed (although it still gets cold at night).

Stayed for 4 nights in Jul and Aug and this is probably one of the best hostel I ve ever stayed. I met a lot of friends from around the world there. Staff and owners are friendly and helpful, they can speak english, mandarin and korean and give good advises and information about your trip. Hostel is clean and its inside the old town and 10mins from airport. Good choice for backpackers.

This is one of the most worthwhile hostel I have been to. The cosy heated bed had given me a very nice sleep. The owner of the hostel is a magnanimous person; respect that.

Very cozy hostel, with fire heating in the shared space, which made it a great place to be when cold. The place was always clean and the owners where available to respond any question or need. They are really nice people! Bikes to rent are amazing and food too. Really enjoyed to be in this wooden old house, where you can smell the fresh mountain air.

Tavern 47 is located in the Shangri-la old town. It's a renovated traditional house. You really get a sense of what locals used to live like. the rooms and showers are clean. they provided you with electric blankets, if you need them. the area can get cold at night. The owners are really nice and very informative. If you're planning on renting a bike, be sure to inspect it carefully. the bikes need to be maintained better. I would definitely stay here again. I really enjoyed it.

Cozy hostel, electric blankets, welcoming staff, hot showers, good food, bike hire. Only thing to note is that the directions (especially the public bus from the bus station) to arrive at the hostel are a little out of date because of the construction going on down the main road. Otherwise fantastic stay!

Private room - great bed, shower , clean . Slightly cold but bedding and electric blanket more than compensates for it. June - great owner, very friendly, patient and keen to share knowledge and experiences. Nice communal area around fire place. Also check out his restaurant - excellent yak hotpot, and great yak meat grill. But - avoid the korean pork with rice, the flavour is good, but portion needs to be doubled to be worth the price.

Loved this hostel! Really lovely, cosy feel in an old Tibetan house. The owner, Jun, was so nice and eager to help with any questions I had. The food in the resturant is really good too! Great location, bikes available to hire so easy access to further afield. At night it gets a little cold but that's the same everywhere in shangri la and the heated matresses work amazingly! Would definately recommend staying here!
