Good location with nice staff. On the other Hand there are too many signs on the wall telling you what not to do. There is also a curfew at 11pm(they told this is at every hotel and hostel in shangri la though). Value for money, yes.
Thank you for the lovely time! We really felt at home and enjoyed the evenings around the stove. The owner created an atmosphere that invited people to hang around in the common area. The food was great too!
It was a great trip, but very cold (-3°C) in the nights, sorry, but electric blankets don't solve the problem ;( Korean restaurant which same host manages was delicious. I hope next year all construction works ends in old town and Shangri-la rocks the Lijiang ;)
It's a really nice place to stay in the old town. Fortunately, it has not been cought by the fire in 2014 so it remains with the original spirit. It's very well located: 5 min walk to the Baiji Si temple, to the Guishan Park and to the bus that takes you to the bus station and to the Sumtsaling monastery. Jun, the owner, Kristy and her sister are super nice. The food is pretty good. You can rent good mountain bikes for 40¥ per day. I highly recommend it!
We had a superb stay in Tavern 47. The owners were very helpful in organizing train tickets due to our limited time and were always around helping us to plan our stay in this wonderful area of Tibet. I can only recommend this place!
We had a nice stay! Comfortable, warm beds! Clean hostel and helpfull staff!
It was a good choice to stay there. The atmosphere in hostel was nice and people were very helpful. The owners also own a Korean restaurant, and food was delicious. I'd reccomand you guys to stay there.
Great hostel with nice social area to hang out around the fire. Stayed in a dorm for one night after tiger leaping gorge and had a great stay. Showers and toilets are communal for all rooms even private. Has a good selection of local craft beer - a rarity in China. Beds come with electric blankets. Wifi is pretty good too. Owner is super nice and friendly. Only negative I had the omelette for breakfast and it wasn't good at all. Apparently the Yak burger is good though.
Tavern 47 is an absolutely amazing hostel. We originally planned to stay for one night, but ended up staying there for three. The hostel owner is fabulous and so helpful. He was very friendly and always hungout and chatted with the guests for hours on end each day. Try his Yak Burgers+ banana pancakes.. to die for! Hostel was very clean and cozy, main space had a fire which was great in the cold weather. Beds were super comfy and clean, as well as the bathrooms. Owner also helped plan our trips.
A nice and clean hostel located in the quiet side of the old town. Owner is very nice and helpful. Will probably stay again next time.
Helpful staff and good location. Shangrila is a big construction site, not a lot to see and do. Great Little Potala Palace and nature around Shangrila. Great Tibetan food! Nice hostel with great yak burger! You have to try that!
One of the greatest hostels in the old town. Hot water is running 24 hours and each bed has electronic blanket which are quite important points for staying in Shangri-la. Friendly and helpful owner. Willing to give you information about sightseeing places and tours. He owns a korean restaurant. I would recommend to try spicy yak meat stew. The best one.
I had a great stay at Tavern 47. Located in the old town, this place has a lot of atmosphere. Rooms were very comfortable (with electric blankets!) and good western food downstairs. The hostel also arranged value for money tours to sights near Shangri-la. Would highly recommend and would definitely go back again!
best take a taxi to the hostel. Located in/near old part of town. Electric blankets provided - necessary haha. Had bikes for rent. Lockers available. Nice hostel! :)
This place had a great atmosphere, with the communal area around an old burner type fire. The dorm rooms were really spacious and they served up great food !
If you stay in Shangri-La Tavern 47 is the place to be. A very nice hostel in the middle of the old town. The lobby area with it's cozy oven is fabulous and a good place to talk with the owner or meet other travellers. The owner is extremely freindly and helpful for giving travel information - he also owns a nice and delicous korean restaurant in the old town, you should try it, definately worth a visit.
Jun & Co are the folks you want to feel good in Shangri-La. Expect to meet more Korean folks than Han or Tibetan even. Good habitation, food, suggestion for onward connection. Very relaxed - especially having come from the hick-hick backroads of Western Sichuan. You are in good hands here. Food good too. I reckon that Koreans & Tibetans get on here. And good for us too: most folk appear to be happy enough. As a guest from any country, this is not exactly paradise Yet it is well well pleasant.
We stayed in Shangri-la for a couple of nights and to be honest, weren't too into the touristy stuff. Our favourite part of the trip was actually our stay at Tavern 47, along with our celebratory dinner at the owner's Korean restaurant after completing Tiger Leaping Gorge the day before. The place can get chilly, but they provide you with everything you need to be comfortable, and the general atmosphere is quite cozy. Other pluses were the food, cute cat, helpful staff, and cool Korean owner!
