Good to store your luggage and stay the night before your hike. We spent one night but wouldn't spend anymore. Everything is pretty basic which is fine. Just don't expect 4 star hotel comforts.


Really awesome set up, I really liked how the walls in the dorm had sheets draped on them with messages from people all over the world. It was the perfect spot to start the Tiger Leaping Gorge Trek, they also had maps fail able for you. The food was really good. The staff were nice. Love my stay here!


A great hostel with lovely staff.

Perfect for starting the hike early! Though if I were to do it again I would be more organised and arrive in Qiaotou in the early afternoon and stay at Naxi Family Guesthouse, two hours into the trek. That said, it was very convenient to be able to leave my big bag at Jane's, food was delicious, and they organised a shuttle to my next location in Lijiang.


Basic accomodations, but great for starting your hike to the Tiger leaping gorge early.


The hostel is very nice with a nice common area and many cats! Jane's sister was a great host, spoke a decent english and made delicious food. I would recommend the sweet and sour potatoes. The room is rustic but perfect for a night before the trek. It is clean. The bathroom had broken shower doors and the water from the shower would leak to the evacuation in the middle of the bathroom. Not too convenient but we then realised it was the same in MANY hostels in China . Highly recommended.

It's the place to stay if you start the trail to tiger leaping gorge, there is all the walkers sleeping there the food is good and the room are clean but not fancy.
