Fantastic place to stay. Extremely friendly hostel owner (not mama naxi) with the cutest little toddler. You really feel the warm and friendly vibe here. It was lovely to watch the family work together in running this place, granma, grandad (we think), mum and son. Real cute dogs too. Anyway back to review. Perfectly located in old town near to...

Our stay in the mama naxi was great. In the first minutes there we already felt home. The food was great, the rooms also, and the staff- the family were helpful in everything we needed. Be aware that they moved outside from the old city!

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

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
