I expected Kersang's to be much better, but admittedly stayed there in off season. I was the only guest there for most of the week I stayed and most of the time the whole place was deserted. The uncle (who was the only representative of the owner I saw) was pleasant, but had no English at all so communication was... More

I went already 2 times to this nice place running by a very kind Tibetan family. This guest house is very special and gives you warm feeling so that you like to stay there. The guest house is made out of wood and has many detailed carving. The rooftop has a nice terrace from which you can look far over... More

I stayed on my own for two days during the National Holiday (1st week in October), Kersang's was an oasis of calm in the otherwise overcrowded tourist trail of holiday season. The beautiful courtyard gave it a truly Tibetan feel and the family were very helpful in giving advice for the next stage of my travels. The only thing was... More

Recommended by a good friend and was glad we stayed there. There were 13 of us, so we occupy almost all of the rooms for 5 days. (Pros) -clean rooms, comfy beds with electric blankets -clean & modern bathrooms with hot shower -great view, located up hill just behind the big prayer wheel. Some days you can hear distant chanting... More

Very nice place -- clean and cosy!! Run by a Tibetan family!! Although most of the old town was destroyed by a fire in January, 2014 Kersang's survived. The old town is now being rebuilt. Kersang's is right behind the 2 hillside temples and large prayer wheel. Highly recommend it!!

If you plan to visit shangri la, stay here! I had a great stay in kersangs, the rooms are super clean and worth the money. The tibetan guy that runs the hostel while his boss, who is his sister, is super friendly. 5 stars!

We stayed three nights at an upper floor room. Basic accomodation, as we expected, but very friendly staff (father and son). The son picked us up from the bus station after receiving only refusals from the taxi drivers. Both were very helpful with finding a cheap ride back to Lijiang stopping at Tiger Leaping Gorge. From the terrace you have... More

This is a youth hostel type of accomodation not hotel. The caretaker is owners father. Nice guy. He works hard and long hours to keep things going. No english but... More

Did you ever see a place with a lot of very positive reviews, but perhaps as many negative ones? We usually tend to give a hotel the benefit of the doubt and discount the negative reviews as the result of a guest's bad luck or the product of habitual whining. We did that in this case and learned, to our... More
