We really enjoyed our stay at SleepyFish. The hostel is well situated just off one of the main roads in the old town near the east gate and is walkable distance from the bus stop if coming from Lijiang. The staff were very helpful in organising our visit to the Three Pagodas and our More

Chris and Tracy are genuinely lovely people, incredibly helpful and kind and recommended lots of things to do/eat/drink, despite having some emergency construction work! The rooftop is probably the best spot to enjoy an evening drink or breakfast in Dali, with great views of the mountains. More

The facilities are nice, the people in the reception are very helpful (this is not common in all the other hostels I've been in China). The terrace can be very romantic if you go with company. The only two problems are: the Wi-Fi in the rooms was not so good and the lookers were not big More

Great location located just off the Old Town. Seemed to be some miscommunication from the room we booked initially, and had to top up some money for the room we wanted. But everything was perfect after. Hostel seems newly renovated, perhaps explaining the dust on the ground. Other than More

Staff were friendly and helpful. The place is situated right outside the old town - can be hard to find when you're first trying to get here, so take note. Nice common areas to hang out in, with facilities like pool table and movie screenings. Food served were pretty good too. Rooms were More

Very friendly and charming hostel at the door step of Dali old town and the mountains. We loved the cosy internal garden, the common area with movie nights, computers with VPN, Yunan coffee and breaky at reasonable price. The staff tries to help, most with good English. They even shipped More

It is good if you are looking for a quiet place to stay. A little bit far away from the busy place in old town but just right next to the bus terminal from the train station. Clean and nice but don't expect too much being as a Hostel.Not having a very warm atmosphere but good if you want a More

Close to the bus stop and quiet at night due to her excellent location. Walking distace to old town thus avoid noise from crazy crowed tourists. More
