Property Description

Dear Friends,

I am Jun from South Korea and my Naxi wife, Christin, from Shangri-La – we would like to welcome you to our Hostel, Tavern 47. I met my wife when I was backpacking in Yunnan 7 years ago and we fell in love.

Open throughout the year, Tavern 47 Hostel is a traditional wooden Tibetan house, full of character and charm. Affordable, cosy atmosphere , clean, comfortable and with 24 hour hot water, our Hostel is ideally located on a quiet street, only 120m or so from the main square of Shangri-La Old Town.

All beds come with electric blanket and a comfortable mattress to ensure a good night’s sleep as well as individual bedside lamps, power sockets and lockers. Private rooms are also supplied with a kettle. En suite rooms with attached bathroom benefit from a supply of complimentary toiletries.

Relax and make new friends around the communal wood-burning fire place.

In addition to providing a knowledgeable and conscientious travel service, a laundry service (up to 6kg) for as little as 15 Yuan, guests can enjoy anything from authentic, fresh Korean and Chinese Naxi food to arguably Shangri-La’s best Yak Burger from our extensive international food and drink menu.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Shangri-La!

    Good spot in old town, but thankfully not on one of the higher traffic streets. The Korean and Naxi food is solid: japchae plus honey ginger tea was my favorite combo. They provide bikes (30 yuan a day) and electric blankets. Really, what else could you ask for? Because the building isn't heated, it's cold to get up and shower in the morning, but there's always hot water. Great owners with plenty of info about the area.

    Adorable space in the old city of Shangri-La. Homey feel, but very very quiet. My friends and I were the only guests there even though it was mid May. Amazing location, close to many great shops and restaurants, and a close walk to Baijisi which is a temple where you can watch the sun rise and set over the whole city. The owner was hilarious and so helpful in giving us recommendations and even took me to the airport on my way out. Would definitely recommend staying here!!!
