I travelled here as a lone female and had an amazing time. The rooms are clean and spacious. There is a wide range of food and drink on site. The only downside is that there are not really tours run from the hostel, you must be prepared to find your own way round the sights.

Stayed just one day - the rooms were fine but the showers had an awful smell to them. Toilet paper kept outside of the bathroom for some reason. Common areas were nice - rooftop balcony was lovely in the sunshine and downstairs area was going but people can smoke inside in the evenings so you really can't escape it.

Not a bad place at all, perfectly fine in most regards. Share rooms were nice, privates were great (private bathroom, towels), amenities were generally pretty smelly but clean. The cafe and common area was nice but don't expect the food any time soon (or to get exactly what you ordered) and don't expect a smile! But, therebis a guitar, chess,... More

This place could be heaven. Though poeple are smoking everywhere, make a lot of noise and open lights even at 2 AM (partying beside dorms). Staff checked in somebody at 4 AM and open the big lights and spoke loudly in the dorm... Guests doing that are bad, but staff should know better. It's unfortunate because the dorms are comfortable... More

Solely rating a king bed private ensuite I would rate the room a 4/5; clean, large, comfortable bed, hot water and tv. That's where the pros end.... The check in here takes very slow, the staff wasn't present first and then kept helping other people while we were checking in so it took over 20 minutes. On top of that... More

Despite freezing my buns off, I'm going to give an unbiased review. Pros... Stayed in 6-bed female door room 304. Great room, good set-up and very clean. Loved the wide sturdy stairs to top bunks and amply storage space. There's even a table and 2 chairs in the room. Great colorful lounge/bar/cafe area with charcoal burning portable furnace pot thingy,... More

We liked our 3rd floor big, bright, airy private room and the hot shower. The common areas were cozy and the hostel has an outside balcony. Some of the staff are really helpful; some seem overworked and bored. The wifi is only in the common areas and the restaurant. And that is a problem. Although one of the common rooms... More

We've stayed for two nights at Cloudland hostel, in an 8-person dorm room. It looks nice: they have open balconies on which the rooms are situated, there's a nice roof top terrace, the bar looks nice, and there's a pingpong table. I didn't like the atmosphere here though. There are quite some people living here because it's a cheaper option... More

If you want to stay in a budget hostel Cloudland is the answer. But do not expect anything else. Staff is rude. Bathrooms are in a bad condition. Dorms are comfortable though. There is not a kitchen where guests can cook their own meal. Because there is a restaurant inside which even rejected our smallest request for boiling eggs! They... More

Passing through Kunming for two nights I went with Cloudland and it wasn't a bad option. Staff were friendly enough. The dorm room was comfortable with private lockers. Bathrooms weren't great but with hot water for a shower that's all you need. Small pool table and table tennis table. Nothing outstanding but a pleasant stay.
