Hump is absolutely at a very good location in kumming ....Easy to get around by public transportation.
Very central location and helpful staff, huge bedroom for dorm, free beer and coffee were great
Great hostel, but the wifi is terrible. But staff was great!
This hostel is first class, easily the most value for money we've found on our travels! Rosa in particular, and all the staff at the hump really looked after us during our stay. Kunming is a nightmare to travel around at the moment but this hostel has a great location and a member of staff even met us at the train station. The dorms are clean and secure (and very comfortable), the restaurant provides good food and the coffee is excellent. The shared bathroom is big, could be better but not bad.
Very nice hostel with nice staff and great location.
The staff is ok but speaks poor English and seems indifferent. The food service is extremely slow, the food itself however very good!

Very good hostel in the center of a peacefull city. The roof top is the perfect spot to Chill under the sun. Must be better without the music at night, but it is not a problem if u want to sleep, it´s a big hostel and the dorms a at the other side of the terrasse. The dorms are nice and big. 10 mins walking From the lovely birds and flowers market.
Location is great, roof terrace - amazing, staff - helpful. But what is normal for Chinese is not acceptable for Europeans, and I mean a "double ensuite room" with shower-and- toilet unit that has no door, and walls that don't reach the ceiling, so you basically have to do everything in the room, that is if you feel comfortable I've noticed that some of the less traditional doubles and twins do have a regular closed toilet, so make sure you get these.
Really great location in the middle of the city with a nice view over the main square. Nice common areas and friendly staff. I would for sure stay there again.
I really think the Hump is a great and beautiful hostel with a nice atmosphere! The only concerns I had during my stay was a dirty towel. We also wanted to rent two bicykles but there where only one useble. Thanks for a great stay
Directions could be better (just says go to the square but it's a big square!) but the staff were helpful. The free coffee AND beer (one of each) were a nice touch. Loads of trips available too.
Hump is a good place to stay only . Like to suggest that the wifi to be extended to the back portion of the hostel. The present (front) space for wifi is not enough for the big everyday crowd.

the wifi could just as well not be there: even email was not working. noise of music and television always through each other. wine tastes as if its over date and beer is not draft beer, but a bottle that has been opened for days. bartender is rude and reception did not speak english well. no towels were given. it is an alright place: beds are fine and clean, its just not very inviting to spend more time than necessary there. i do recommend there offer to the hotsprings.
A nice cosy hostel in the middle of Kunming. The directions were perfect from the bus station when we came from Dali. It was raining when we go there so it was really cold but inside the hostel was nice and cosy! I would definately stay again! :)
The guys at the front desk were rude and unhelpful. The girls at the bar and serving food were lovely. Such a shame because could be a really nice hotel. Lounge area is great, perfect for relaxing after a long trip around China. Dorms were OK, though our toilet door didn't close and ended up using cleaner communal toilets instead. The French toast was AMAZING!
Close to shopping areas, roof top bar overlooks main streets and mall so good to look over. Was worried that bar would be super noises at night- only noise was general city noise- bar didn't seem busy at all. Room was very basic- mould on walls, shower temp on and off. Would imagine nicer places around but only just ok for a 1 night stop.
The location is quite easy to find and good, it is close to shopping area and lots of shops near to the hostel. WiFi service only can use at living area, can't use in the room. The staffs overall is nice but there is some black sheep among them, some of them seriously unfriendly and without politeness. The rooms and the public bathrooms was quite clean, but the toilets is a bit smelly..
Great place to meet other travellers and ten minute walk to bars etc.
