Located less than 10 minutes walk from the old town in Shangri-La, Kevins Trekker Inn is perfectly placed. The room was quiet, very clean and spacious with good bathroom facilities. Laundry and airport/bus station services are also provided for very reasonable prices. Kevin and Becky are extremely friendly and helpful and do everything to make your stay pleasant and provide...

Becky, the hostess, reminded me of my mom. Her smile, her helpfulness, her sincere well-wishes for our trip was clearly evident. My stay here was closest thing to home away from home and I would definitely recommend anyone, including students, to stop here :)

I stayed at Kevin's trekker inn back in May and had an excellent time. Taking the upgrade option for the top floor room with it's excellent terrace and panoramic windows that maximised the view over Shangrila. Well worth it to me at least. Conveniently located close to local bus routes for the main sites, the breakfast was great and the... More

Having spend that much time planning and navigating yourself to Shangri-la, most likely you're not here for luxury resorts or out standing hotel facilities. Well, if you are looking for those, maybe you should consider changing destination and head somewhere else for your vacation. Kevin's Trekker Inn provides excellent balance between affordability and comfortable accommodation. It certainly doesn't have the... More

I stayed at this well situated guest house for 2 nights, both Becky and Kevin were very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed the conversation just as much as we loved the cleans rooms and their beautiful garden. All of these have eased slightly the pain caused by the damage done by the fire tragedy to the old town. This Shangri... More

A great experience staying here- we opted for the new section and were really pleased with our rooms, a good size and good amenities and very clean. Make sure you opt for a family style meal with Becky and Kevin- we had 2 and highly recommend their cooking skills. Breakfast too is great value and if you are going out... More

We only stayed in Shangri-La for one night on the way from Tiger Leaping Gorge to Lhasa, but Kevin's was one of the best places we stayed on this trip. Very clean, large rooms in the new area, and very friendly owners who even drove us to the airport! Location is great, right outside from town. I hope that Shangri-La... More

I arrived in Shangrila after finishing the hike at the tiger leaping gorge. During that time is was raining non-stop so i boarded the bus to shangrila, cold, wet, tired, and needing a place to stay immediately. I didn't pre-book a room, but based on the reviews from wiki travel, i chose this place, and luckily they had rooms available.... More

I was not the person who picked out this place(I'm10 years old!!!), but I really liked this place. Kevin and his wife Becky are very friendly, and they can speak very good English. They recently built a new building, and (of course) it was more expensive than the older rooms. We did not stay in the newer rooms, but we... More
