Comparing the one I stayed before in Kunming, I had a better time staying in Cloudland. Personally, cleanliness is always on top of my demand, here I was happy with. I had a alcohol spray for the western style toilet. In the dorm, you have a private locker to keep your personally precious belongings. Generally, the atmosphere was good too.... More

Slightly outside the city center (15 min walk) this hostel offers great atmosphere and a welcome retreat after exploring. The restaurant offers a wide selection of food, there is plenty of common space to hang out, and the dorms are nice. I personally enjoyed the charms of the building, decorated with a lot of amazing photographs.

This hostel is great for foreign backpackers. It has all the necessities you need after a looong bus/train ride! Always had hot water and toilets were super clean! Food was terrible though. Apart from breakfast, don't eat anything else here!! The pizza was just disgusting!!! However, the beers were cheap and the staff were friendly enough!

Rude work stuff here , make people sick. Trying to sell you higher price tickets on everything as well.. Bathroom is dirty... what a shame for a place like this. The drink and food here are not high quality either. Not recommended.

This was probably the most thought-out hostels we stayed at in China. it was beautifully decorated in a local Yunnan / Tibetan style, it had a cool courtyard, an awesome bar/cafe area, and the location was very convenient. It seems like it was founded by two Australian backpackers so they knew what they were doing. Unfortunately, it seems like the... More

Pretty good atmosphere at this hostel. Staff are friendly enough and it's very clean. Nice common area/bar/cafe to chill out or play pool if you wish. Location isn't the worst but a bit out of the way, lots of bus options nearby though. The only bummer is the WiFi which has been mentioned several times. Stayed here twice and both... More

It's a big, massive, 5 floors hostel. A bit more personal would have been nice, but once you're installed on the corridor on one of the couches you'll meet enough fun people to chill with. Rooms are okay, big bunks and facilities are clean on each floor.

It has been my 2nd time in this hostel. They have improved in 2 years the reception areas and the rooms. I love the outdoor places such as the pool table, the rooftop, the sofas etc. Rooms are clean and spacious enough. Breakfasts and food in general is tasty and inexpensive.
