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

We arrived here after a bus ride from lijiang. It is easily reachable by public bus, following the directions on its website. They are located at 2min from the (burned down) old town, from noah's cafe that serves excellent food, from wondefull supermarket where you can gind anything you want. Kevin and becky are very helpful and advised us on... More

Stayed two nights in Kevin's. The courtyard is filled with flowers and beginning to bloom. Rooms are nicely decorated, as per their pics in their website www.kevintrekkerinn.com. Our room didn't have a cupboard to hang our clothes, having a coat hanger stand will do. : ) There are two chairs and a table outside the room if you wish to... More

Hosted by charming Kevin and Becky, this is a lovely hostel just right for travelers. We had a room in the new block with panoramic views of the city, temple and giant prayer wheel. Very clean with kettle and electric blanket, (which is needed as there is no heating in the room) good bathroom and lovely hot shower (bring your... More

This place owned by Kevin and Becky and they are great source of information for travelling in Shangri-La. Their English is great and they are always helpful. Their place has old bldg. and new bldg. I'd recommend the new bldg. which is slightly more expensive but the room condition is much better with nice view of Zhongdian town. I also... More

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
