    Best hostel. Beautiful old Chinese construction and warm hosts. Courtyard and the Tibetan mountain doggy are conducive to relaxing. Ideal location.

    Unbelievable place. Honestly one of the highlights of my trip. The hostel has such a relaxed feel and balances perfectly the old traditional style house and modern comforts. I’d recommend this place to anyone wanting good value and a place to both rest and enjoy the outdoors. The staff were so helpful in all respects and I thoroughly enjoyed the yoga sessions and hiking.

    Beautiful. Amazing place! Location is fantastic and the atmosphere is so relaxed. Perfect for a few chill days. We had a double private room. A bit weird having the toilet in the room but we just used the shared bathroom which was perfectly fine. Would 100% recommend this place

    This hostel and Shaxi generally were the perfect antidote to the fake 'ancient towns' you find all over the country. There were tourists, sure, but it was quiet, low-scale tourism, in this charming town set in a quiet valley. The hostel staff were great company. The dorm was fairly shabby and really would have benefited from mosquito covers on the windows (the room was infested with them at night during my stay in the summer.)

    This inn is located right in the middle of ShaXi, making it a perfect location to explore the town from. The rooms are very bare bones, but definitely have character, as does the rest of the establishment. We found the staff to be very helpful during our stay.

    Fantastic location right in the town square of the old town, absolutely charming old style house with beautiful courtyard. Dorms are dusty and a little dirty, but not without charm. Lockers and locks for safety. Common bathrooms are surprisingly clean and well-taken care of. Staff friendly. Definitely a unique stay and would come again, the private rooms seem better. Get up early and you mighy find a frog hopping around the courtyard.

    Overrated online - what was true a few years ago is maybe not accurate anymore. Better options nearby now that the village has developed. Room really small and not super clean. No atmosphere in the hostel. Service ok but just ok. Budget option.
