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!


Jun, the owner, is really, really nice. He and his wife run the place; sometimes you may have to track them down to get help, but when you find them, they are very helpful with whatever you need. The yak burger (and other food) really is delicious. The hostel is small, but with a warm feeling and everything you need. Definitely recommend.


The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the food was great! Trip to Napahai was the best!!


Nice hostel, and good staff, lovely food, is a reasonable location, unfortunately there is still a lot of building work around after the fire.


staffs are very kind and foods are really awesome.


The owner here is very friendly, no taxi would actually drop us to the hostel as it was under construction so he picked the 7 of us up. At the time of writing the road outside was under construction so was hard to get in and out of hostel but not the owners fault. We had private room, was comfortable and quiet! Only two showers available so there was a bit of a queue! Food was tasty and reasonable price! A nice quite family run hostel, such a pity old Shangrila has been destroyed by fire!


Very friendly and helpful host. A bit difficult to find and a pity that the old town adjoining the building was destroyed in the Jan 2014 fire

The owner is a great guy, he'll be happy to help you with anything


Thanks to the hostel owner Jun for going out of his way to help us and show us the best Shangri La has to offer. The best hostel we stayed in on our trip, just such a shame about the old town (or lack of it). Lake trip was beautiful.


Very nice place close to old town. you can feel traditional house in this hostel, cuz this building is 40 years old. But dont worry, the owner always keep clean and welcome everybody. The best thning about this hostel is food. Especially, yak meet burger, rice etc everyfood was great. If u pass through daocheng, lating, u can take a relax at this hostel with deliciouse foods. Otherwise u will go though daocheng, lating, u can fill up ur energy before leaving. I totally reccomend to you.


Good location nearby (the remainders of the burnt down) old town. Very friendly and helpful owner couple. Charming wooden Tibetan house. Rooms were nice and clean. Good cooking throughout the day, including Yak burger (although the one at N's Kitchen was slightly better). Short walk up hill to an excellent view point over the city. Can absolutely recommend the place.


Excellent staff, really friendly and helpful. We wanted to spend more nights there to relax but we didn't have enough time. 100% recommended!!!


The 2 sisters in charge are really nice and helpful, they made us feel like at home. Ask for directions by mail before going because it's difficult to find after the fire last year. Also try to the yak burguer, a tasty experience. We definitely recommend this place
