Stayed 2 nights. All Staff are friendly, most speak a good level of English, food are good portions but there are some cheaper places to eat. Very close to the old town and an easy bus ride into the newer Dali. Doors are locked and require a code so security isn't an issue. Only qualm would be that the bathrooms aren't the best designed so everything gets wet and need a bit better ventilation. Could use a common room that is sealed when it is colder/windy however there is a free movie room.

Great hostel in Dali. The courtyard area is really nice, and it's set out of Old Town which is good to get away from the crowded streets. The workers are really nice, the food is affordable. My only complaint if for the bathroom in the 8 bed dorm. There is no fan or window, so when someone showers, the bathroom stays damp all day. Just kind of icky. Otherwise, would recommend to friends.

Awesome place - the Australian owner and his wife are super helpful and nice. There was something going on at the hostel every night. 5 minute walk to the entrance of old town. Excellent food. Best hostel during my trip throughout Yunnan.

Great atmosphere. Met so many new people. The service is very good. They offer many games and other entertainment. The rooms are clean, especially for the price. The walls could use repainting but that's just peanuts. It was a bit cold ( winter and no heating in south china) the bathroom was very moist and without ventilation.

Amazing place. Perfect location for staying in Dali Ancient Town. Wonderful staff. We've stayed there on two separate occasions and would definitely recommend. Stayed in the mixed 6 bed dorm both times and it was lovely.

Fun hostel set up well for socialising in summer, but nowhere warm to sit indoors in the winter. Staff v nice, friendly & speak good English. Great location just few mins walk to the old town. Double room was spacious, bright with strong hot shower. However room was very cold, electric blankets great for keeping warm in bed at night but if you're just chilling out in the room at any point it is very cold. Wifi pretty tempremental throughout hostel.

Great vibrant hostel. No lockers, which is a downside. A little too noisy though - a guy kept drumming into the night for two nights straight. The public is both chinese and western, with a high percentage of older couples and families.
