We spent lovely 4 days in the town and thanks to the staff we could spent much less money as they provided us with the map and directions. We visited the mountains with their trip and it was one of the best hiking in our whole lifes!

This hostel is pretty good.Come here if you enjoy quiet surrounding.All stuffs are good and I like them.
Really nice hostel in the Old Town. The perfect base to explore Lijiang.
This hostel was great. Great location in the old town. The staff are so friendly and lovely :-)
I thought the location was great because it was just inside the Old Lijiang town where it was less busy. To get into the really busy area takes a walk of ten minutes, and there it can be really, really busy. River the Owner is fantastic and very responsive to emails.. The food cooked on the premises is good, or there's street food or cafes about 5 metres away. The airport pick-up worked real well. There's a nice little lounge area, and also TV area and bar, great to meet new friends.about

Staff is fantastic and speaks great English We stayed in a private twin room and the bathroom and shower were so nice with great water pressure and the beds had electric blankets The other people staying at the hostel were fun and friendly and my friends and I hung out with the people we met there outside of the hostel a few times too They have a pool table, a bar, and good home-cooked food for a reasonable price (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
River and his staff run a friendly, comfy and efficient place. It is in a nice and quiet area, only a short walk to the bustle of the main square. After the taxi from the bus station dropped me off, Sara came to lead me to the hostel. River helped me set up my trip to the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The 4-bed ensuite was clean and comfortable. Electric blankets, plenty of hot water, large storage lockers and good wifi. The food from the restaurant was nicely prepared and the prices were fair.
In a town where everything is over-priced, this hostel was the one good deal that I got. It's extremely affordable. The atmosphere is really nice. Plenty of guests congregate in the lounge and the lovely courtyard, so it's a great place to meet fellow travelers. The rooms are spacious but have a cozy log cabin feel to them. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel is a bit far away from the city center, but that means is peaceful and there are no crowds on the street.
The staff is very friendly and accomodating. It is on the outskirts of the old city, so you miss the annoying hustle and bustle of the touristy streets. It was quite convenient to arrange a bus from here to Tiger Leaping Gorge, and they provide a secure room for your baggage while hiking.
A space heater in the room would have been nice
We stayed in a double room ensuite. Room plus bathroom were super clean and they even offer floor heating within the room. Water was hot but they don't offer complementary toilet paper. Stuff was super helpful. Helped us book the trip to the tiger leaping gorge and could always answer all of our question. They also speak perfect English! Location is good. 15 min walk to the main square in the old town! We would definetly come back when we visit Lijiang again!!
Friendly staff, Good location,Cozy relaxation place on 1st floor. But little bit noisy as hostel is under construction.....
very friendly and helpful staff who assisted in ticket booking and trip organizing. also good breakfast! our room was big, clean and comfortable - if a bit cold. but there were heated blankets to compensate for that...
We arrived in the evening. The staff is really good, he can do anything and provide everything you asking for. The location is great not that far from what i was thinking. Everything great!

Located in the old town, so a bit noisy because a lot of things are under reconstruction in the street during this period and a school close to the hostel. Electric blankets! Towels for free only for private rooms.
No smoking Policy is very good. But I have seen some staff smoked inside the hostel area or in th bar. I think the staff should follow this rule as well.
We stayed here one night, then returned a week later.. the staff were really helpful and friendly, our double room was well equipped with anything we might want.
Staff are warmhearted and very helpful at giving you a lot of good tips about this beautiful ancient town. Beds are comfy and well kept. Nice efforts can be seen everywhere and they are devoted to make your stay great!
The hostel is well located In the old town, although a little tricky to find; the staff were very helpful, especially "Ray", who actually came and collected me when I was lost.
Excellent hostel! Staff is very friendly and helps with tour planning, very good food for lunch and dinner.
