附近有大超市商場對於要補貨離開拉薩遠行的人相當方便,走路也可以到大召寺,去布達拉宮也不遠,周遭還有郵局和有名的書店可以買明信片。入住的是旅社多人宿舍房,有熱水,但房間內的淋浴間好像沒有打掃的很仔細,邊邊角角或牆面都是髒的,wifi大廳訊號比較好,服務人員態度OK,如果不要求太多,是可以考慮選擇這裡的。 location is good. there are supermarket nearby. It's important for people who gonna out of Lhasa to somewhere else for a few days. Have to buy some fruit and snack or instant noodle. Also you can find bookstore to buy post card. And famous temples like the jokhang temple is 20 min by feet or Potala Palace is 30... More

We stayed there during a backpack trip in August 2010. It was pretty hard to stay into Tibet after our package tour ended and finally we found this place while walking around Lhasa. I guess in the past it was a nice hostel but now it's run down mainly because of the writings in every single wall, they make the... More

I like the rooftop of this hostel, where you can view the potala palace by night, drinking cold beer and chatting with friends. The staff is helpful and friendly, we got lots of good advise from the staff. Tibet is not fully open for foreigners, so we had to do some organised trip from this hostel. They offered some good...

We were housed here as part of our package tour. First off, we loved the graffiti on the walls, and the staff is really great too. If you are free (and not freezing to death), the rooftop is a great place to chill and just sip a cold beer while looking at a most awesome view of the Potala Palace.... More

This place is not great. It probably was a good a few years ago but now it is a bit run-down. The reception area is nice but don't be fooled. The bedrooms are freezing. The beds are so uncomfortable. Rock hard mattresses meant we had the worst night sleep ever. We were a group of 11 travelling around Tibet and... More

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. My wife commented they are like angels. She had a giddy spell after climbing one flight of stair when she arrived at the hostel after the 44 hours train journey from Chengdu. The staff immediately help her to carry the bags to the room, provided her with glucose, and advised her not to... More

We stayed in a room for 3 last year while our being in Lhasa. This is quite noisy place firstly for chinese independent tourists, but also some agency can arrange your stay here for a budget tour. The cleanless is worse than in hostels in Europe you could stay before, but average athmosphere is approx. the same. Staff is friendly... More
