Garden Inn worked well for us, being clean and modern with very helpful staff on the edge of the old town, over which our rooms had good views. It is about 40 metres up a footpath connecting with the main road around the old town, so we had to bump our bags up the hill on arrival. After spending a... More

The Garden Inn is definitely a no frills hostel; it does what it needs to do & nothing more! We arrived in Lijiang via train and caught the number 4 bus to the old town, which was 1rmb each. When we arrived we couldn't figure out where the hostel was, so we paid a taxi driver 10rmb to take us... More

The hotel is located at the edge of old town but not too far. It is closed to bus stop (5 min walk) and takes around 10-15 min by foot to the center. Staff was great and fluent in English. We got free old town map and he helped us to find out tour package to Jade Dragon Snow mountain.... More

The location quite OK. (at the edge of old town, of course, backside). Quite easy to go out and have low price meal but good teast at the restaurant outside the old town. However, this hostel actually need to renovate the toilet and shower room as soon as possible. Of course, the hostel sales the map of old town, no... More

Although my husband and I didn't stay here (they were full at the time), the staff -- both day and evening -- were extremely friendly and helpful. They tried to find us a room and were happy to answer all our questions, write things out in Chinese character for us and generally, were terrific. We had breakfast at this hotel... More

The staffs are incredibly unhelpful, rude, unfriendly and uneducated. They ask money from you if you request a map and give you an "unhelpful" attitude when you ask for a map and won't explain how to get places. Besides, they are unwilling to answer any question from guests. Hygiene problem - Toilets is not clean since they only wash once... More

Spent 4 nights here as I used Lijiang as a base for my travel around Yunnan. Location is great, walkable to everything in Old Town but without the throngs of people as you step out the door. Rooms were good as well, though I only stayed in dorm rooms. Opt for one on the 2nd floor if possible, there will... More

very friendly and helpful staff, he gave me some useful advice about going to Shaxi. A good place to meet fellow travelers, ideal for backpackers, but don't expect too high for room standard for the price given.

From the moment we entered the hostel one guy who was working there was really unfriendly with us. It his unfriendly attitute continued throughout the evening and ruined our experience in this hostel. Rooms are average. However, one woman (who I believe was the owner), was very nice and helpful when we left.
