    Great place to stay in Lijiang, and the perfect starting point for anyone who’s going to the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The staff is friendly and internet is fast. Really conveniently located between the old town and the bus station.

    Great hostel, almost like a hotel. Clean, friendly staff. The lockers and beds could be improved but they were comfortable. My room was spacious, bright and clean. The common area is nice with a pool table. Definitely I would stay again.

    Great location right next to the old town. The beds were cosy. Sinks are in the bedroom in the dorms so could get noisy if the room is full (people brushing teeth etc.). The only negative was the fake frog sounds from the pond!! Really thought it’d be turned off at night. But I’d definitely stay here again.

    Generally, I liked my stay a lot. The location was perfect - about a five min. walk from Lijiang old town - and the staff were friendly and welcoming. My only complaint is that the facilities are a bit old and sometimes hard to operate: the stream in the shower was really weak, and I had to have staff help me open the room's door or lock the window. I also didn't like that they charged me 15 yuan to use the air conditioner (which didn't really do anything tbh). Other than that, great hostel!

    The hostel is well located for the Old Town. The bus to the Leaping Tiger Gorge stops nearby - the hostel books tickets. The room was clean. The hostel cooks simple food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Recommended.

    We booked twin room with shared bathroom, upon our arrival we were really surprised. The room was full of insects, a bad smell and a window that doesn’t close. We told the staff about it and asked to switch rooms and his solution was to spray bug repellent!!! And to pay more to change to a room with private bathroom. We had to do it because the room was in a really bad condition. The “new” room wasn’t much better. The bathroom and the shower were filthy, there was no hot water, bugs again etc..

    The worst service imaginable! I got in late (1030 p.m.) and stayed only 8hrs and the man at the desk was horrible! Yelled at my taxi driver when he called and asked for directions. Had an attitude because I didn't understand his accent. Yelled at me for having too much luggage. Told me it was a hostel, not a hotel (obviously) when I asked for luggage storage, that they are supposed to have. Did not give any info about the hostel. There was no heat in the rooms, and no door to the bathroom.
