If you are looking for friendly and English speaking service in a convenient location, it is the right place for you. I have been several times since 2014 and I always like to go back. I have been disappointed about the recent renovation because now the restaurant has been reduced to a small but cozy cafe and the pizza has... More

The manager of this hostel is exceptional! She came to meet us from the bus from Dali and waited for more than an hour as our bus was delayed. The room was narrow with two single beds end to end but the beds were wide and comfortable. Breakfast was good. The hostel staff were friendly and helpful and the location... More

Did not stay here, but was allowed the opportunity to sample amazing customer service at this establishment. Allison went out of her way to help me during my stay in China. She provided a "breath of fresh air", a much needed cup of joe and a homelike environment when I stumbled upon her door. Thank you for your kindness! And... More

Our room was right across from a school. The children scream from very early morning and you can't have sunlight in your room unless you want them staring straight into the bedroom. Room was small and shower smelled weird. Overpriced for what it is; there are other hostels for half the price in the area that are better.

We stayed only for a Saturday evening, our first night in China. The location is fantastic right near Green Lake and they provided a good map. Its also only about 15 minutes walk from the airport bus terminal. The receptionist spoke passable English, but said she was new and not familiar with the area when we asked for more information....

The Lost Garden is located brilliantly next to Green Lake, it has a variety of quaintly designed but comfortable private rooms, its breakfast is first-rate, and the staff are consistently friendly and helpful. Its traveller notes surrounding a very useful map of Kunming are the best we came across in Yunnan. The sheer diversity of people staying here (mature couples... More

Great room for a family with a double and an extendable couch which we used. - great shower - very friendly staff - Aiyi is great, everything is clean and she smiles (first time we had that in China so far) - good...

We had a really nice stay at the Lost Garden. Location was amazing, very close to the lake in a quiet alley. The map given at the reception was a huge help and had great information to help us visit the city. The room was small but had everything we needed. The highlight however was the amazing staff who was... More

In my youth I did my share of backpacking and stayed in some truly awful hostels. I am now older, less flexible and somewhat more affluent so it was with a degree of trepidation that I booked into the Lost Garden Guest house. I was pleasantly surprised. The location is excellent, just a block from Green Lake park. The rooms,... More

I requested twin beds as the mattresses in china are usually as comfortable as a wooden board and i toss and turn all night. We got a twin room, but it was so small the beds were both alongside the wall headboards touching. No space for luggage, when you get out of your bed there is about 1 m space... More

Yes, our twin-room situation is very limited, you would have been much better in any one of our doubles. Too bad you didn't know we have very good mattresses here... Room 105 is now cheaper to reflect some of the disadvantages you pointed out. We are investigating some of the other problems. I checked the handset of the shower and... More
