Beautiful hostel in a quiet street close to the old town. Took a while (maybe an hour) by bus from the bus station but when I got there the staff and owner were really friendly, kind and helpful. It's the kind of place where it's easy to meet other travelers and there's a nice atmosphere. More

Located in the quiet side of the old town, it makes me feel comfortable to stay in. The hostel is clean and pretty, staff are nice and helpful. Having stayed during mid autumn festival, it was fun to gather with other backpackers on the terrace. More

Stayed here for 4 nights, great place! Would recommend to get a bike and go around the lake if you're up to that :) Only downside was the food. Quite pricey and not Chinese food was often not available. More

I booked this hostel for two nights. Overall the stay wasn't anything special. The staff spoke good English, the beds are fine and it was easy for me to get a good night's sleep, but there were several problems. The shower's cold water handle was broken so it only had scalding hot More

Nice place to stay, doubled the nights also because Dali is a nice town. The ensuite bathroom has a good look and feel. It's noisy though if you're in the bed and roommates use the water and toilet. Beds are better than most dorms! Menu and food is good, but a bit pricey. Recommended More

Stayed 3 nights in a twin private with shared bathroom. The room was with a window to the hallway and the beds were kind of squeaky. The bathrooms throughout the hostel were not sufficiently functional although it looked like it was cleaned daily and there was only one western toilet for 3 More

Great location just outside of the old city. For the dorms there was only one bathroom on each floor but this actually was never an issue! More

The hostel is like probably the best located we saw, especially if you like a short walk home after a night at the bar. The staff here, however, are useless. When asked questions, they act as though you're inconveniencing them and give you a vague answer or rubbish directions. They also More
