Hotel is located in the old town near the burned down area. There are a lot of construction near there which causing some dusty. It is not far away from Big Prayer Wheel temple and quite convenient.

Stingy with hot drinking water, glasses, toaster, and other shared kitchen items. - one staff member speaks English, others... More

We had an enjoyable 2 night stay at N's; got a big private room upstairs with 1 double + 1 single beds and a spacious bathroom. The beds are not the most comfortable ones (rather hard) but we had a good sleep. The wifi was fast and free. The food was delicious and of good quality. We tried the pizza,... More

I spent only one night at this hostel. It seems quite small looking from outside but it has a nice garden in the middle. The beds are comfortable so were the quilts. It even has a little curtain so you get a lil bit privacy while staying in the dorm. The house is made of wood so it is really... More

We were staying at another hostel but came to N's several times for their food. Great value, great service and simple and delicious food! The staff was great too, very nice people! We had the yak burger, western breakfast, and a number of their teas and juices. Everything was fresh and we didn't have a bad dish.

The hostel has a lot of potential. It is at a great location, big bedrooms and a nice garden. When we were there the owners, however, were only gambling. The whole reception area was full with locals and the 2 owners smoking, drinking and gambling. Therefore it was also not possible to eat or drink from the restaurant. Maybe a... More

Let me start this review by noting that 80% of the old town of Shangri-La burned down, including many hostels. N's kitchen & Lodge partially burned down, but restored quickly from the disaster. Renovated and ready for action, N's Kitchen & Lodge made a new start. Because of this, many of the previous reviews do not apply anymore. We were... More

Given the relatively limited choice for backpackers in Shangri-la we were satisfied with our choice of N's. The room was clean for Chinese standards, althought the bed was very uncomfortable. The staff were helpful in giving us directions around town and also in assisting with making online plane bookings for our onward travel to Chengdu. The breakfasts we ate at... More

The rooms were clean, and the the only good thing were the showers that were great. The restaraunt and bar dont work so you cant even get tea.the service is bad, and it feels like they just dont care about you.

Me and my friends (we were 5) stayed in this guesthouse on July 2013. I have to admit that the dorms are fine and clean but it not worth the disgraceful treatment we received from the owners! It started when we asked for few more minutes with power generator to take a shower and the answer we got was "You... More
