    Extremely good hostel in Dali. There are a lot of guests at night time and it is easy to socialise in the lounge area. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    I’m usually pretty bad at leaving reviews, but this hostel was one of the absolute highlights during our trip to China. We intended to stay for one night, but ended up extending another two nights - and if we didn’t have to catch a flight, we’d probably still be there. Amazing atmosphere, good food and location in a beautiful city. But most importantly, the people. Thanks to Lily, Evelyn and Xi - the most welcoming staff ever. We left as good friends, and I really hope to see you soon again

    The perfect place to stay in Dali! Beautiful courtyard, very comfortable beds and close to the old town. We also really appreciated the selection of movies in our room, great way to relax after a day of exploring.

    My stay here was great! The staff is SO NICE and the facilities were much better than expected. It does have a little bit of a hotel feel but it’s still a great place to meet other people. Perfect location to the old town and nearby attractions. My only complaint is that it was difficult to climb up and down the bunk bed due to the way the ladder is set up, but it’s not a big deal. I would stay here again!

    Great vibes. The common area was a good place to meet other travelers and the western breakfast at the sister restaurant is really nice if you want a little break from Chinese food. They also have a VPN built into the WiFi which was really convenient. Only downside I can think of is that they charge extra if you want to use a locker in the dorms (special sort of lock so it doesn't matter if you brought your own lock).

    I’d stay here for the staff again, everyone was so so kind and sweet. They have a really cute and weird dog named magic which was an added bonus. Across the street from old town. No full size lockers for bags in the room, but they have safes with a 30RMB deposit for a key. Able to rent scooters from reception. Dorm was a little cramped but comfy. They have a lot of good food at the restaurant, tons of options. (secret 2nd pup on songs sisters roof. Go do your laundry and meet cho cho)
