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!

Very cute Tibetan style building in the old town area. Shangri la was very quiet and bloody cold when we stayed so the hostel was almost empty. Common area has a massive stove to sit around, good hot drinks including yak butter tea and a friendly little odd eyed cat. Food was good as well especially the Korean dishes. Our room was freezing but the bed had an electric blanket so was ok. Little English spoken bit lovely friendly staff.

This is a very nice place situated in the middle of Shangrila old town. The owner is very nice and helpful. He can speak english and willing to help you in every aspect. The price is really cheap compared to what you get. You can find everything you want here. However, as the place was a ancient wooden tibet house, sometime it is a little bit cold in the night. Aside from that, everything was perfect.

My friend and I had an absolutely amazing time staying at Tavern 47 during Chinese New Year. The atmosphere was really inviting, the rooms were really clean, and the electric blankets were much appreciated! We also loved the food, and sitting around talking to the other guests around the wood-heated stove.

Well. It was ok. Had better hostels at a cheaper price. I came in winter so not many people in Shangrila. Still the staff seemee a bit helpless and slow sometimes. One time they almost suffocated the entire hostel because they didn't know how to properly make a fire in their stove. everything was full of smoke. Yak burger is tasty. Then Jun (the owner, was on holiday) arrived and everything seemed to go more smoothly.

One of the best hostel we stayed in China. The owner was really friendly and helpful. He invited everyone who stayed at his hostel to his restaurant for the Xmas dinner (best yak hotpot in Shangrila). Highly recommend to anyone heading to Shangri-La!
