Thank you for an awesome stay! Don't know what we would have done without your kind hospitality tour organising, and general helpfulness! If your going to stay in Shangri la Kevin's is a great choice! The street is currently under construction like most of Shangri la or so it seems but it will certainly only get better from here and...

Mary was a very helpful, lovely person. Good location as the old city is just a 2 minute walk down the hill. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the complex was very relaxing. Our favourite place to stay so far in China our very affordable. Highly recommend.

The rooms was nice, but not special. Comfortable bed, good shower and the hostel is realy close near the old town. Very friendly people that give advice four activities (good english), help with tickets and make good breakfast.

The host is really nice and will help you with planning your days. Cute dogs in front, but they're not used to petting so be careful there. I had a room which was a bit older, but still really good. I liked the electrical blanket a lot! It's close to the old town, like a 2/3 minute walk.

We stayed in a lovely second floor room with amazing views across Shangrila city. It was clean and comfortable and the room was very spacious! The owners were very very friendly and really went out their way to help us out, even offering us extra layers of clothing on the first night and were accommodating when a change in travel... More

Kevin is away and the new manager, while lovely, struggled a bit with English causing some confusion at various times during our stay. We believe we booked the top floor room with amazing views but were given a family room. No price difference but maybe it was our misunderstanding of the booking. Our room was nevertheless very nice and spacious... More

Location is great, amazing views from the top floors, clean and cozy rooms. The best part though was the staff of the inn, who gave me lots of tips about travelling in Shangri-la and areas nearby such as suggesting routes for trekking, and organised transport for me. Whenever I called them for random questions during my trip, they would always... More
