I stayed in Mama Naxi's guesthouse for three nights last December while on a hiking trip to Yunnan from Beijing. At first I received some confusion regarding airport pickups, but luckily I had a Chinese friend call them for a translation. In the end I had a transfer from the airport for a reasonable price of 80rmb. When I arrived... More

Tucked away in a quieter corner of the Old Town, Naxi Guesthouse is far enough away from the hordes of tourists to actually enjoy a walk around the cobblestone alleys, but still close enough to the action. The guesthouse itself is beautiful and has retained a lot more authentic charm than many of its' Old Town counter-parts. 100yuan will get... More

Me and my boyfriend arrived to Lijiang at 8 pm and searched for the Mama Naxi (according to the Lonely Planet). We found it and asked for the double bed room- We paid 160 RMB. When we got into the room, we found out that there is no wifi signal in the room, only near the recaption. Also, the "hot... More

Actually not really one place. The hostel has at least (at the time of out visit) three different buildings. We stayed one night at a pretty deserted place in a hot room in need of some work. The next night we spend at the (main) hostel building. A lot nicer here, but still we had to wait a long time... More

Such a lovely place to stay. Mama is very cute and gives you tea and cookies all day long. Her daughter is a little bit sulky but that didn't bother me. The rooms are big, clean and the beds are comfortable. The common area is lovely and when it gets cold in the evening, mama makes a fire to keep... More

The hostel is very nice and perfectly clean. The dorm room (6 people) was perfect. The owners of the Hostel, old naxi Chinese couple, is very helpful and friendly. The only negative point was that the two people from the staff who work on the Reception were kind of unfriendly and not super willing to help with planning. All in... More

I loved staying in t his guesthouse. The people running it were very kind and organized a great chinese dinner for all the guests. Also made some international friends there. Rooms were simple and clean. The inner court is a pleasant meeting spot, for chatting and enjoying a cup of tea.

The food is excellent, the showers are hot, the WI-FI works and the service from the owners is excellent. We went on the two day trek up and down Tiger Leaping Gorge and they held our baggage at no extra cost and even gave our old rooms back to us when we got back!

Mama Naxi is quite a good hostel, good beds, good showers, nice settings, good location, good family dinners and so on and so on. but to be fair... its all a little bit too much familystyle to me. Mama naxi is watching tv all day with her smelling dog running around, its all at ease and you dont feel really... More

Centrally located but quiet, this guesthouse is the perfect place for a pleasant staying, even rates are competitive. Rooms are comfortable and furnished in typical Chinese style. The yard, with its little tea break area, is adorable. The owner (or maybe the manager, I'm not sure) is an old, sweet and kind man who, although does not speak English (as... More
