Rooms are clean and comfortable, but there is no door to the bathroom (stayed in a twin room). Location is amazing - right on the main streets - pretty far from the bar street though. The noise wasn't so disturbing. The Wi-Fi hardly worked, lots of Chinese tourists but there were Western ones too. The food in the restaurant are expensive and they charge you for a map of Kunming which I found really annoying. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall a good place.

Great location. Good showers & the toilets are constantly being cleaned. A free (real) coffee was a nice bonus. Rooms noisy from the music played in street but the hostel supplies free earplugs. There is a constant smell from the restaurant downstairs and the only communal space is the bar/ roof terrace where loud music is pumped through speakers 24/7 gradually getting louder in the afternoon and it's hard to have an actual conversation by the evening. We gave up on the Internet working for us.

i highly recomend the hump. Everybody was so helpful, but i particularly want to thank George who took a few hours of hs own time to show me how to get to the south coach bus station. This was incredibly kind and helpful and so i would like to take this opportunity to say thank you again George. Also i would like to thank John who used his own skype account to help me phone New York after i had so disastrously lost my own phone. A special thank you to you to John.

The hump hostel is on a great location in kunming. But the staff isn't nice or helpful at all. We asked for some directions and the girl who was helping us had more interest in other things and then came back to us when she had the time. Which left us standing there for more than 5 min. Beds are nice, but rooms are very noisy. the hostel offers free earplugs, use them!!!!

We stayed in a twin room for 3 nights. Staff are super friendly and helpful! The place is really cool and the bar has good food. The only thing we didn't like was the room. The beds are not comfortable, the toilet gets clogged often and the shower has very low pressure and there is no bathroom door so it gets very cold... Its clean and some people will not be bothered but we've been in nicer hostels.

Nice place, location is good. Atmosphere is ok but not the best hostel I've stayed in, pretty good value though for the price!

We had private rooms with own bathrooms. Designs of the room were awesome (except for the lack of doors in the bathroom). Rooms pretty clean, close to the city center. Would book it again.

The staff was ok and helpful. The problem was those who stay there for a long time. Some of them were real weirdos. Don't say hello to anyone and make the place like homeless refugee something. The bathroom needs some ventilation. Smelled nasty when I had to take a show. But for 35 yuan, you cannot complaint.

well. at least, the location of this hostel is the best among the hosteled i have stayed before.but pretty disappointed about their policies and staff's service. even though the hostel lies in china, the bar in hump hostel just sells imported beers which are too expensive to backpackers. furthermore, we went to the bar in business hours, they said we can just have the 'imported beers' even they had an ingredients for the cocktails.

Thanks for your comment.We are really sorry for your unsatisfied stay at the hump hostel.I think there are some misunderstanding.Our bar faces to all kinds of guests,not only for the bagpackers.And we have diffrent type beers,but we checked in those days,the cheap beers sold out.We are really sorry for all the inconvenience.

1. The hostel is located in main street, hence it is difficult to sleep as outside is very noisy with traffic, when people talking loud.. 2. Washroom is not clean as they only clean once in the early morning. Bad smelling when entering to the toilet. 3. Inside the room, the ceiling and wall look very dirty and can see alot of boxes in the room, i thought it was a store room but they treated it as room to rent out. 4. Staff forgotten to pick up although i had remind them twice before arrival.

Clean rooms, clean sheets, clean shower rooms and restrooms, staffs were okay. No wifi whatsoever in the rooms, barely any proper signal in the lounge as well. Only one public computer at the lounge. That made us almost impossible to book and arrange any accommodation and tickets for our further journey.
