This is the backpacker (/trekker) place to stay in Shangri-La. The inn has been in place for 12 years already and the owners are avid off-the-beaten-path traveler themselves, so they really know how to run the place and what the travellers want. I stayed at the new part of the inn, at the most expensive 'penthouse suite'. The extra you... More

The best thing about Kevin's place is the effort that Kevin and Becky make. Just ask and they will help if they can. Clean rooms and the communal area is lovely and warm. Great courtyard to sit out in the sun. Difficult to find the place though. Had to give Becky a call but she gladly came out to find... More

Kevin do all he can, when you have questions or if you want something to do. In the evening there is a room where everyone can enjoy the heat of the woodstove and can communicate with eachother. It's a good feeling because of cold evenings. The rooms are clean and consist of bedheating. Kevin speaks fluently english. The hostel is... More

Thanks to Kevin & his wife for making us feel so welcome during our stay. Kevin gave us lots of great tips on things to do around the area and was generally really friendly. The room we got looked almost brand new and the cleanliness was excellent. The only little tiny negative was that the bathroom felt a little damp... More

Kevins Inn is a 5 minute walk from the old town and very worth it. Kevin and his wife we're a pleasure, as we're their dogs. The room we had was excellent, the bathroom was one of the best we had in China, the bed was good and comfortable.

We have stayed at Kevin's Treeker Inn in May 2013 and we found this a very friendly place. The main disadvantage was that the room was cold, as there was no heating. They got electric blankets only. But there were many good things: The owner was extremely helpful with trekking tips for Yubeng (good that they recommended the beautiful path... More

Firstly - this place no longer has dorm rooms. We stayed in a twin (120RMB). Which we felt was a bit pricey, but about average for the area. The beds are super comfy with electric blankets for the cold nights. There's a nice lounge area that is warm and social. Close to the old town, but not in it, which... More

We spent 4 days here in Kevin's Trekker Inn, and love it. The owners are really helpful, and speak very good english. Nice view from the rooftop, rooms clean and colourful. The guesthouse is very near from old town, and hopefully : it's more quiet and less touristic !
