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

Stayed in a double room on the top floor and it was lovely! Views of the entire city through a huge window. The decoration of the room was really nice too so it was well worth the reasonable price. Kevin is very friendly and the location is good.

Kevin is a real nice person! Friendly, helpful and willing to give good recommendations. The breakfast was delicious and we really like the communal area which makes you feel at home. The room is basic, but comfortable. The view from the top of the house is great! A perfect place to stay in Shangrila.
