There are two hostels round a couple of corners from each other. #1 is a bit dearer and couplesy. #3 where I stayed is great value dorms. Lovely traditional courtyards, and very friendly welcoming atmosphere. Mama Naxi is your archetypal matriarch who oversees that everything runs smoothly. Don't be intimidated: she has a good heart. Comfortable stay in a good... More

Standard amenities, cozy, though a little bit run down and periodically lacking in hot water for the showers (though this can be a common problem in Lijiang). The place has tons of character, situated in an old traditional Naxi courtyard style home. The family that runs it is very nice, speaks decent English and is ready to help in any... More

Very cheap, comfortable room which was pretty clashing and loud with regards to decor, but quite funny and 'kitch' in a way. Also lovely hot shower, and heated blankets which were great in December. I'd stay here again.

By far two of the best western breakfasts I've had in Asia. The room was extremely clean, as well asthe bathroom. They spoke good English and were extremely helpful. They can help you book tickets to the orchestra, they have bike rentals available. There are loads of amenities. There was also a nice courtyard with free green tea. I would... More

After travelling the better part of a month I was pretty exhausted and of course my flight into Lijiang was delayed. No problem, I had a private driver pick me up, even 2 hours late, drive me into town and walk me to the door at 2 am. Every one was asleep so the staff just showed me to my... More

Absolutely fantastic...mama is a delight who greets you like a long lost friend every time you enter... As she waits with a hot tea and a huge smile... The twin ensuite rooms are really large, clean and for the price are fantastic...the common courtyards are fantastically social spots to find, meet and share experiences with fellow travellers.

We booked the Mama Naxi twin ensuite for three nights but due to change of plans had to extend our stay for an extra 3 nights. It was quite relaxing to be in Mama Naxi 1, which seems to be quieter than Mama Naxi 3. Our host was very nice, helpful and she speaks English. We were welcomed with delicious... More

Currently there are 2 Mama Naxi hostels in Lijiang. We stayed at Mama Naxi #3 the first night (where Mama Naxi herself lives) and Mama Naxi #1 (the old/original location) on a second night after going to Tiger Leaping Gorge. Mama's meal (held at MN#3) is very good as people say. You'll get to try a few Naxi dishes and... More

We stayed first at Mama Naxi's first location in a private room with a bath. It cost 150RMB and was lovely, quiet, clean and her daughter was incredibly helpful in helping us with travel advice. We were very grateful. We stayed the second night at the dorm room Mama Naxi's for 40 RMB per bed. This location had a great... More
