Hot Springs Hostel

Kunming, China

It was raining heavily the two days I was there, but I tried their 'spa' pool between downpours, and the water was quite warm. Good place to relax and chill, but downtown this is definitely not. It's actually a newly opened hostel carved out of something like a Chinese holiday resort, so I was the only Westerner there, which was fine by me. If Yunnan noodles is not your thing, make sure you bring your own food.

on my way to laos via kunming, or vietnam via nanning, or close-by yangshoa, i always stop over at the green forest for the 4 Ls - location, lounge, laughter and luggage (storage). very central location-wise, it beats its closest competitor hands down; the latter's location is a bit out of the way, especially for lady travelers walking back at night. the lounge at green forest is often filled with laughter, especially when the occasional lucky westerner beats one of the hostel's girls at mahjong

Hello,Thanks so much for your high comment, have a nice trip! Best regards,Tianna


in the other 2 financial hubs (SH and BJ), one is spoilt for choice for a dorm bed, but there is almost no other alternative in SZ. just heard about this new apartment hostel which should offer some competition, but going by the pic, it sure looks like they are are cramming in the dorm beds, whereas loft is really (relatively) spacious, 3 beds to a room, super clean sheets and wired internet in the dorms, wifi in the lounge. girls are friendly, so is the male team leader, new guy a bit surly.
