Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The employees are very rude.There are no windows of the room.There are two huge smelly dogs in the yard.The whole yard is filled with bad smell. I think they don’t wash the dogs. The sheets are unclean and the staff refuse to change clean sheets.

Liked: Great hostel with nice atmosphere and a lot of character. We only stayed one night, but wish we had stayed longer. Staff was incredibly helpful in advance of our stay by organising drivers for us and answering all our questions. We were picked up in Lijiang, visited Shibaoshan on the way, and driven to Lijiang airport the next day. All went smoothly. Location is great, right on the main square but peaceful and quiet. They organise all kinds of activities for their guests and rent bikes as well, wish we had more time to make use of them! This hostel and Shaxi are well worth more than just one night's stay.

Liked: Great location, very nice staff, converted horse stable with lots of character. Good big lockers, personal lights and chargers for each bed.

Disliked: The room (female dorm) wasn't very clean, looked like no one cleans the rooms, just the bedding. Toilets and showers (2 of each) are outside, but that's the nature of this town.

Liked: This town is like heaven on earth. This hostel is located in the best place of it, in the main square. Time doesn't seem to pass there. The staff is lovely and very considerate. They had some issues with us, but they immediately reacted and did their best to revert the situation.

Liked: Loads of character, fantastic location and friendly, helpful and informative staff.

Disliked: The place could do with a little tender loving care (without losing its character) and those dogs could really do with a good wash - as gorgeous as they were, they were smelly!
