No locks on the dorm room. Only one shower for all dorms guests. Only one toilet for all dorm guests. not enough sockets. Dorm has only one main light, no personal lamps. Beds were ok and clean. Food was good. Good starting point for the hike. Atmosphere was average though.


The hostel itself is pretty average in terms of facilities. Very little english is spoken which is not too useful for a place used as a starting point for a well known track. The guy managing the place was really friendly, but lack of english and hostel condition lowered the overall experience of the stay.


Jane wasn't around so it was difficult to get any kind of answers or tips for the gorge. Can't really knock 'em for that though. The food was pretty sub-par but the rooms were clean. It was rustic and well-managed. Don't expect anything more. They did, however, arrange for our bags to be transported to our guesthouse on the trail which was awesome.


An OKAY place to start the trek from. A little bit dull. But very friendly staff.....English not so good, but just enough to get by. Food was average as were the facilities. Bag storage was free!!


The hostel is quite old, the staff did not speak English. Exept the location and the vreakfast everything was below the expectation. I stayed during the complete trip in other hostels with the same price range and they performed significantly better. Negative highlight was that the cold water was completely brown with a lot of big particels inside.

Good location to start the tiger Leaping gorge trek. They pick us up from Lijiang airport which was useful for us as we arrived late.


If you get the right staff,it would be ok. When we arrived, the gentleman was wonderful
