    Probably the best hostel in Dali. Great atmosphere in the common area and a good quality vpn! The only negative I can think of is that in my hostel room it seemed like there were people actually living there, not just travellers and they had their stuff everywhere.

    This was the nicest place we stayed in our 3 week trip around China. The apartment was amazing- a living room, amazing remodeled bathroom, and lovely bedroom. I got a stomach bug in Dali and appreciated this retreat, including free movies in English on the tv in our room. The breakfast food here was also incredible. Highly recommend the Jade Emu, great quality for the price.

    Bit of a mix between a hostel and hotel. Great staff, great facilities, unbelievable food and a great location just across the road from the old town.

    Nice hostel and nice location, the staff was very helpful the only thing that I would remark is that I was in a shared room with workers of the hostel not with guest.

    Nice clean hostel, friendly and helpful staff. My only complaint would be that the shower floor gets super slippery when wet. Other than that the location is really good and the bed was big, which I liked it

    The Jade Emu.. pretty much doubles almost any good hotel I've been in. The front desk staff is nice, but the owner(sorry for not knowing his name) really went through alot to fix the TV with 150 movies that they have for every private room. Very clean, great decoration, rooms are big and cozy, view is amazing, and the location is 5 mins walk to the old city. Great hostel, would definitely come back. Only 'bad' thing was that in every breakfast we ordered there was some mix up that let us down..

    Nice place to stay, very close to Dali ancient town. I stayed in a dorm, and it was comfortable. There are key card doors although the security lockers inside don't have locks. A very big hostel, with a mix of both domestic and international travellers

    Nice place, nice people, and nice food. The bathroom could have been cleaner and so could have the wall that my bed was against.

    I arrived late and left early so I didn’t experience much here. If you are visiting Shaxi, they provide a direct minibus service which is great.

    Very Good

    Nice hostel with a great lounge area. However the curfew at 12 & big size makes it quite unsociable. One bathroom between 8 girls in the female dorms is also a pain. Food is good but quite pricey for the small portion sizes.
