I stayed three nights and was amazing! The staff, the location and the atmosphere! I strongly recommend the French fries! Delicious! Definitely will be back!


clean and comfortable,friendly staff and owner.besides the toilet is downstairs not so convinient for cold winter, all are good.


It's a lovely place. Shangrila is a really cold town, the electric blankets help a lot and the environment in the common area is nice and soothing. I loved the hot chocolate with cinnamon! The cat is cute and friendly.


Nice place but extremely cold. No heater or air con at all while outside we were at -7 degrees.


Wonderful! Kept us warm during the snowy times.


It is difficult to find


Nice, cozy place to be when in shangri-la, owner n staff there r very thoughtful n willing to help. Besides the room is too cold due to the lack of heater( but they do have electric blanket to cover that), other parts r great, wooden antique style Tibetan house, clean sheet n comfy mattress, couldn't ask for more! Highly recommended.


Very nice people Very helpfull Best regards

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.


Great hostel and very nice staff.


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!
