The location is wonderful ! The restaurant is wonderful ! The staff are wonderful ! The price is good. Only thing is that the family rooms are downstairs in the gloom. Having said, that the room is large and the beds hard but comfortable. Good sleep. No connection to overseas web sites.

We stayed in a room in the basement which was quite dark and small, with two single beds in a row, head to head, not room to have them next to each other. We stayed here our first night after a lengthy trip from San Francsico, so the fact that the room was dark and quiet was good so that... More

We originally booked twin rooms but found it rather dark and cramped. We switched to a double room up top...much brighter, more space and the shower not directly over the toilet. Loved having the heating off! Some staff really nice, breakfast good and overall great location.

Stayed in the female 3 bed dormitory which is located at 2nd floor along the street. At times, sleep was disrupted due to street noise. During weekday mornings, I was woke up by kids screaming as my room is located just beside a kindergarten. Bed was comfy and communal shower was good. Had friendly domestic travelers as roommates. Receptionist was... More

Stayed on a bunk bed here for 3 nights. It's very close to Cui lake and walking distance to several night markets and great street foods. Very close to a big bus station. Had pretty awesome roommates during the 3 days: Spanish cyclist, french trek maker, Australian student, an older Chinese dude, and a mysterious one. I really recommend this... More

Overall is good with clean bed and room. Just one downside which is the noise. It was not from outside but the staffs themselves. Although 9pm is not consider as late night but it is for tiring travellers. Kindly improve this and I would give 5starts rating. They do provide good breakfast and service though.

We stayed here for three nights on the front end of our trip in Yunnan. As other reviews mention, it's on a quiet street but the hostel sends you a very through detailed email confirmation if you book. Our room was pretty nice if not a little dark and slightly cold. It was below the dining area and check in... More

My husband and I stayed here the night before our flight left Kunming. The guesthouse is down a quiet alley street. We hired a taxi pick up through the GH, so we had no problem finding the location. (The cost of the taxi was a little steeper than other similar distance transports we hired in China, but it appears the... More

Lost Garden is hard to find, and if you were expecting a garden... It's not really there. Rooms are just good enough -- clean, spare, a bit worn. Shared bathrooms are between 2-3 rooms and right across the hall, so it's not like so many hostels where you have to wander down corridors to a big communal shower. The best... More

The Lost Garden is a great little hostel. It is initially hard to find and feels in the middle of nowhere, but is right next to Green lake and Renmin Zhong Lu. I stayed in double room and it was more than sufficient, good toiletries and comfortable if not a little dark, The hostel itself was a great little place... More
