It was an unplanned visit to Shaxi and I booked the accomodation one day in advance. Since it is a low season, we managed to book without problem. Instruction was clear and we found the place without problem. We took a 4 hour bus ride from Shangri-la to Jianchuan and the ride was unpleasant with driver and passengers smoking away.... More

Lovely place to stay, great value for money, cheap place with loads of character. Location is perfect right in heart of Shaxi. Helpful staff who speak good English. Downsides are that there is no soundproofing as walls very thin, and some rooms have the toilet in the same room as the bed with no partition. But there are outside shared... More

I spent 3 nights at this lovely place. Nice room, small..but with everything you need including a shower. Pittoresque courtyard, it also includes a bar, occasionally movies are shown. Breakfast is served in a dining room and every night the cook makes a delicious family style dinner. We ended up staying an extra night. with the help of the owner... More

Many thanks to Xiao Qu, Xiao Fan, Xiao Ge and the rest of the team members for a memorable stay at Horsepen 46 in Shaxi. This place is rather not easy accessible but definitely worth a visit for rejuvenation, cultural and historical experience.

It is located in the center of the lovely little village Shaxi (the historic center). And if you look for something special, authentic in the center of this village, where you get good advise and help from the staff, for 1-2 nights at a low price - you should stay at this hostel. Considering the price you pay it is... More

shaxi is good place, hote is good too. Also recommend Miss May Hotel 86-138-8722-7343, 5W. Yunnan is the dreaming place for worldwide tourists, While Dali is the most beautiful part of Yunnan, While Shaxi is the most special county between Dali & Lijiang, While Sidengjie is the heart of Shaxi; While Miss May is your destination!

Great decor and rustic charm, amazing location in Shaxi. Go on a weekend: on Friday the down has a little fair/ market and on Saturday the hostel organises a free hike up ShiBaoShan, a really stunning walk that takes about 6 hours there and back but is so refreshing with such great views you'll be itching to do it again...

My friends and I stayed here for a short break while hiking in the area. The hostel is very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. The staff were helpful and resolved any queries/requests very quickly. The beds are firm, but warm (electric blankets!) and comfy. Shaxi is so quiet with no road noise that I slept the best in ages :)... More

A tastefully restored old Bai building just off the central Sideng square, in the middle of all the action. Actually, there's no action in Shaxi, which is its charm. But get there soon as new mini-hotels and boutique hotels are opening all over the centre and a huge new resort is under construction in the centre of town; in 5... More
