The street can be a little hard to find at first - its nearest the North Gate, so I would highly recommend getting in contact with the hotel as you are arriving to help direct you; especially as taxi drvers are unlikely to drive into Old Town. Within Old Town, the hotel is in a decent spot More

The staff is super friendly, and the hostel is really cute and quaint while still being modern. A good mix of young Chinese and foreign guests. Best hostel I have stayed at so far. More

Jade Emu was very closely located to the Old Town. It was very convenient to walk there from the hostel. Also the Three Pagodas is accessible by a 20-minute walk. The hostel staff provided great travel advice as well. A great hostel if you are visiting Dali for several days. It is located More

Very nice staff, with excellent english language (the owners are british and do their best to give western travelers a feeling of being home) and located in a quiet area of Dali. Has a stove in the common area and a bed heating in the rooms, so no need to wear a jacket indoors as 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
