Location is far and maybe a bit confusing to find at first, but it is away from the busy and loud center of the old town, which meant it was quiet (great plus)! The staff were also very nice and helpful. I only had breakfast at the hostel, but was a nice breakfast before leaving the hostel.

Lovely place to stay. Staff are all English speaking and very informative. Slightly confusing as they have changed their name recently so street signs still have their old name. And they are not wrong in their information in saying the taxi drivers will leave you anywhere as they don't like to drive in the old streets. If you can email or ring the hostel before. Well worth the effort. Overall fantastic.

Timeless hostel has the best and most knowledgable staff, hands down. Excellent English and the manager, Allen, was always available to me when I called for recommendations-even when I had already left the hostel! Excellent dorm beds with curtains and a nice bathroom. The Internet was also great and the rooms are well lit. The lockers are massive and can fit your whole bag. Stay here!

Hostel was remodeling when I arrived, so I couldn't experience it in it's full glory. It looks like it will be quite nice when the remodeling is finished though. Staff was excellent! Especially Allen, the guy at the front desk. So helpful, funny and always carrying a big smile. Location is a bit further out on the edge of the old town, which may or may not be a good thing. If you hate crowds, being a little further out is great.

A great, clean hostel with exeptional staff. Allen made our holiday in Lijiang a memorable one. Not forgetting River. Both rendered their utmost efforts to guide and helped us navigating the Old Town, Yulong San and Tiger Leaping Gorge. Room was super clean. Superb!

Efficient & attentive staffs; room & beds are comfortable. Only 2 comments: 1) please inform the staff if you'd like the room cleaned up. They don't do it automatically. 2) If you're taking the shuttle to TLG (very convenient by the way) & carrying luggage with wheels; please ask the staff to take the shorter way on the left side of the hotel. Closer to the main street & easier to wheel your luggage all the way to the bus stop (not very easy on the cobbled streets of the old town).

This is I think the best hostel we ever stayed in China. Nice admosphere, very clean and new rooms with great view and very helpful staff! Allen was of great help with picking us up where the taxi driver dropped us, and arranging shuttle bus to the Tiger Leaping Gorge. Breakfast and sandwiches as lunch were very good as well. Location is in the old town, but in a more quiet area which makes it very comfortable to stay. We really would recommend this place! Btw, this is the renamed Panba Hostel!

Helpful staff in preparation for tiger leap gorge. Located away from the tourist frenZy in old town. Took the staff recommendation to rent a bike to shuhu and baisha and it was well worth it.

Staff is very helpful for me who can't speak Chinese. As you know it's hard to survive in China if you don't know Chinese but staff is very helpful and very friendly. Hostel is close to the old town. Just 10 mins by walk and you can go to the Black Dragon pool by walk also. Value for money.

Based on your words, it proves that you did not only survive but had fun,you're amazing and inspired ,my friend. Proud of you,and have a good day. By the way, can't speak Chinese? still worry about ? see? no problem! Chinese people are friendly,i do think so. If you are still worried or aren't confident enough, then ,," Here's my number, call me maybe...." (haha,the lyrics are what i wanna say,so i quoted.) Regards, Allen,Timeless hostel,Lijiang

Stayed at timeless hostel for 3 nights. Staff were very helpful in helping us find our way to Tiger Leaping Gorge and around Lijiang. The hostel is clean and secure. I would definitely recommend staying in Timeless Hostel!
