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

We stayed there for 1 night. It os rather an average hostel. Common area is rather poor and we didn't find the stuff very helpful nor very friendly. If you need a place to crash and meet few other travelers then ok, but there are better places nearby ie. Tavern.

Fantastic owner who helped us book train tickets for no added fee. The hostel itself attracts very friendly travellers and met some great people here. Dorm rooms have everything you need, showers are v hot and bed warmers in every bed. The owner says they're gonna build a bar on the roof by March 2013. Thanks for a great stay... More

We booked a private room after reading the reviews, but were disappointed. The guy who checked us in seemed less than thrilled that we were there, the room had a funky smell, and in general our room and the common area weren't very clean. We were there for 24 hours and the same dirty glasses and plates that were on... More

I made my booking in N's Kitchen & Lodge after reading the more than positive reviews I found. I have sorely disappointed for many reasons. - We called to be given the directions and the girl at the reception said that she would come and meet us at the bus station. we waited 30 minutes, called several times but never...

This was our second hostel in Shangri-la, we rejected the first after one night... This place was warm cheap, clean and had great coffee and food in the little restaurant out the front. Well located in the old town and a great base for exploring the area.

N's is the perfect place to stay in Shangri-la: it's got a great location, good food, electric blankets for the colder nights and helpful staff. They can also, with a ten yuan commission, book almost anywhere you'll move onto next. In short; an awesome place to stay.

Perfect resting place after a rough hike through the gorge. The rooms were very clean and the staff was terrific. They really felt you like home. The food was just outstanding but a quite pricy in my opinion. The dormroom we booked was very clean, though the beds were hard. The ensuite shower/toilet was of high quality. The reception/lounge offered... More
