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. Only ate the... 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

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

I have noticed a marked split in the reviews of Mama Naxi's and I can see why - it really depends what type of trip you're on, and what you're looking for from your stay. For budget travellers, this place is ideal - family style Naxi dinners for guests, huge serving portions, good English spoken, a warm bready roll on... More

I am not someone who write bad reviews about places as is it their way of life and I am simply one guest out of thousands BUT I was far from impressed with this place, especially mama. Upon arrival, I asked if they accept my YHA card, at first the reply was 'no' so I decided to look elsewhere. As... More

We stayed in a dorm here and found the place okay. It is a little grubby in places, at times, but tolerable. The shared bathroom is inadequate for the number of guests it is required to service and totes an unfortunate miasma towards the end of the day. On the plus side, however, the staff are very helpful, and Mama... More

Stayed here 2 nights as a base to get off to tiger leaping gorge Certainly not easy to find (read impossible unless you run into the right people) but the location is good nonetheless. In the heart of the old town. Good dorms, clean showers. Nice courtyard and bar/restaurant area where wifi is accessible too Good level of English spoken... More

I have stayed in many hostels and hotels in my time but as far as a hostel this is what a hostel is supposed to be. Family dinners are each night for 20rmb and did she cook up a storm maybe 8 or 10 dishes. She has a great dinning area for you to meet and visit other travelers and... More
