    Outstanding operation, Chinese/Australian hostel. Located in a community of hostels outside of Old Town in Dali. Excellent staff, room, and atmosphere. Restaurant and cafe provide Chinese and Western menu. Room spacious, beds comfortable, A/C and WiFi very good. I found this property to be beyond expectations. I only wish there had been a chair for the desk. Highly recommended.

    The hostel is quite a good location situated near the old city but not inside which is too crowded. The receptionist was good in giving info. The food and the atmosphere was nice. They clean the room everyday.

    The hostel is great for value and have everything you need - even for food. It is very convenient and near to the old town, 5-10min walking distance. Transport also can be arranged from the hostel. My dad and I have a good, chillax trip in Dali and were well hosted. Thanks!

    One of my favourite hostels ever, and definitely the best I've stayed at in China! The location is great (the old town is just on the other side of the road), the staff is very friendly, and the common area is amazing and always have people hanging around. The only downside is that the wi-fi is pretty poor... it's often very slow or you can't connect to it at all. But everything else was great, I'll definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Dali (beautiful too!)

    Had a really nice time staying here, but it wasn't without it's downsides. We stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm and the bunks has a serious squeak problem. Every time you turned over at night there was a nice big groan from the bunk below. I think this was actually caused by the metal lock boxes attached to the bunch (which were great btw). Our room wasn't very clean when we arrived, but I think that might have just been the quests that were there. Food was really good, try the mushroom claypot.

    Nice hostel, however my overall impression was that it's somewhat overhyped in the reviews here. The atmosphere could be better, the common area does not exactly invite to get to know people. Food was good and beds comfy. Rooms a bit crowded. As there was a festival, it was a bit noisy along the main street. I would stay there again.

    Overall we had a wonderful stay. Some issues such as lack of hot water and clogged toilets came up. The staff were attentive and responsive to concerns. The common area was very friendly and we even participated in the Christmas party.
