Liked: Its a big place so potentially lots of people to meet and have a good time with. We also rented some bikes which were good quality and cheap. The bar prices and food are okay too. Plus 3RMB per day bag store is really good particularly as you will very likely be in Kunming to start a bigger trip in Yunnan.

Disliked: We found certain members of stay rather frosty, and for a place called 'international' it doesn't seem 100% to be dealing with foreigners. Also several of the lockers in our room were broken and the locks broke off very easily when a lady came to fix them"

Liked: Staffs are very helpful,kindly and friendly.

Disliked: Almost of customers are chinese, so they spit everywhere(not only common area but also inside room).And no quiet time, therefore, they continue to chatting loudly in room and keep turning on the room light. Not suitable for sleep.At the last, they always keep the door opened intendly. Security card is useless.

Liked: Very peaceful place, clean and relaxing. Having stayed several times at better known and also wonderful KM hostel I really wanted a place to get a better night's sleep, away from the construction and the clubs and the general street noise. Upland is just the place for this! Good food and drink at surprisingly shoestring-compatible prices, and also a great garden where you can eat stuff brought in from outside (such as outstanding baozi on Denghua Street 登华街 just a few minutes walk up huashan xi past hospital, over the road). Close to central lake, university areas with great street food, and only 20 or so mins walk to Xi Yi Jiudian for airport bus.

Disliked: No open kitchen, but there is hot water available to make drinks - also see notes on food above.

Liked: Really helpful staff with excellent English and information. The cafe and bar has some really good deals and they were able to meet specific requirements. The location was lovely too, it was very near Cuihu park and easy to get to from the train station.
