For the price this is one of the better options in town; good location next to cafes and generally clean (apart from weird moldy shower curtain that they had tied up in a knot - just remove it if it's that gross!). It is also nice to have a balcony. Wifi sucked; just went next door to Meimei and Mekong... More

Due to Chinese New Year Holidays the hotel was really crowded. stayed in the dorm with one of my friends.it was overpriced (100 RMB). (All the hotels were actually overpriced due to the Chinese New Year). Anyway, the customer service was really poor. When we checked in my friends bed had no sheets, and mine was still having the previous... More

Except the fact that the guy at the recepetion in the morning don't like to be waken up (at 7h30) and that the rooms are a little bit aging, this place do the job and is good value for money. Well located 10 from bus station and helpful (day) staff. Not much to do/see in town though, but good stop... More

We stayed here for two nights and were pretty pleased. our room was on the fifth floor (no elevator), we had a small balcony facing the main street but it was high enough to not be bothered by the noise. The shower was decent with hot water all the time. Also we had AC, TV and great WiFi. The staff... More

Clean, helpful, very good location, and since we are in China: having a balcony instead of the stained carpet and smoked room was heaven. Western breakfasts just opposite, a good Thai one step further and other good restaurants and coffee shops on the same side of the road. Just behind the hotel here are rows of beautiful tea shops.

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2013. We paid 138 Yuan per night for a double room with bathroom. The first room we got had a lot of ants so we asked for another room and that wasn't a problem. Unfortunately at night we found out that this room had a problem with the airconditioning. It was leaking... More

I didn't actually stay here but I did consult the front desk person who was quite helpful in helping me with my inquiries. This is a Youth Hostel group but for some reason it is not listed on the YHA website. I would have stayed here if I had known earlier. This hostel is at the center of town and... More

Our recent stay at this hostel was very short lived. We were on town for 3 days and had trouble getting around and finding information. Our previous hotel was real nice and only 60yuan per night, yet English was nonexistent. We needed help getting buses and finding our way to treks and out of town so figured it would be... More
