Chinese directions

Please note if taking a taxi: Please ensure the driver takes you to up the hill to our hostel, located 200m from JinHong Middle School (????). Some drivers may try to drop you off at the main road near the bus stop, and we have heard some tell our guests that the road is blocked or transport is difficult in attempt to take you to another guesthouse and receive commission. Our advice in this situation is to find another driver or contact us.

Please note if searching for us on Google Maps: We are located very close to the North Gate of Lijiang’s Old Town - Google or Baidu maps may direct you to another “October Inn” as they copied our name. The Chinese name for our hostel is “??”(Anna).
