Very nice place, still need to make a comment on a chance of bus stop not near gates of 60 hospital, but on the Yuye St. :)
Very peaceful, rooms are very clean and comfortable. Not the place to stay if you're looking for a friendly hostel atmosphere as it's quiet and out of the way.
Hostel is a little tricky to find, as it is quite well hidden in small streets of old city. On the other hand its location, near all the interesting places, is one of its strongest points. Rooms made a really good impression on us - for their prices they are well above avarage chinese hostel. Only problem was that after a shower it took ages for water to go through the drain but it was a really minor issue for us.
Great hotel, excellent atmosphere, very Chinese style design. Quite hard to find though as it's in a small back alley, they should give better directions, and no one was picking up the phone when we tried to call a few times.
Timeless in is a small alley and herd to find .

This is a good place. The directions to get here are spot on, and the location is in a fairly quiet area within walking distance of all the good stuff in Dali. The only way to improve the location would be if it were right on Renmin Road (though that might be noisier). The staff here are excellent. We missed a train and had to cut our stay short. I was worried because I did not use flexible booking, but the staff were very considerate and didn't give us any problem. The rooms are very nice.
Hands down one of the best places I stayed in Yunnan. Rooms are clean, the owners are super chill (also incredibly knowledgeable about where the best spots in town are), and had the pleasure of meeting some other fantastic people over some beers in their downstairs hangout spot. Can't wait to go back!
I expected to sleep on a matress... not on some sort of smooth linen. The location is good, the staff speaks excellent English but the atmosphere could be better.
Pretty good hostel. Nice room, although a bit cold. I would have liked a kitchen/bar, but there are plenty of places to eat (including a great American-style diner) on Yangren Jie and Renmin Lu. Helpful staff
The hostel is very clean and comfortable. The terminal station for the bus from the train station is very near…just look for the Timeless sign on the post in front of the alley. There is also a sign at the end of the alley. It is nice and quiet and only a short walk from the main part of town. I slept in the 4-bed ensuite, which was spacious. It will be perfect once the restaurant opens. Vincent was an excellent host and very helpful when I had trouble getting a bus to Jianchuan. I'll be back!
