+ Guesthouse-Manager Min did his best to make our stay comfortable. He even took us to the bus terminal with his own car the day we left. + you get a free transfer from the airport if you write them an email in advance. + we got a free upgrade to a 3-bed-room, probably because we've been the only guests....

I was looking forward to having a yak burger but I was told there was only breakfast, no lunch and no dinner because there weren't many guests staying. OK, so I went somewhere else for one. Disappointing. Make sure you only go there when it's busy!

No complaints whatsoever! Our flight was delayed, but they still picked us up despite it being nearly 12am. They were very welcoming. The room was cosy, very clean, comfy beds & enough bedding to keep us warm in the very cold night. The family running it gave us advice on where to go & what to do, and if you... More

Staying in this hostel made my two days in Shangri La 100% worth it. Extremely friendly staff wth helpful advice, cheap and very good food (go for the yack burger!), and a very homy atmosphere. Dorms are spacious, no bunk beds and every bed has a curtain for privacy (plus reading light and plug). Very nice common area and lovely... More

They provided really good information on what to do in Shangri-la and surrounding areas and were able to help with booking transportation. The rooms were really good value with amazing showers.

We (2 couples) loved N's Kitchen and Lodge. Decor is simple, quirky and charming. The rooms were comfortable, the electric blankets cosy, the water hot. The owner Min, his girlfriend and their gorgeous 5 month puppy were lovely hosts. Min was just about the most helpful person we encountered during our 10 day trip to Yunnan, and we met a... More

The location is great, the maneger very nice, great food and good beds. The only thing is that it wasn't clean. I spent here 2 nights and 3 days and in that time not once i walked to a clean toilet! The maneger and the workers are there the hole day but no one cleans.. To bad.

Although we only stayed one day and one night in this hostel- we had a lovely time! The hostel has a great ambiance, and a warm feeling to it. The rooms are not the cleanest to say the least, but they are spacious and comfortable. Downstairs there is a pool table and an Xbox- where you can play any game... More

I stayed two times at this hostel. The dorms and private rooms are clean and well maintained. The location of the hostel would be good as it is right next to Old Town (which unfortunately burnt down and during my stay in June 2014 was being rebuilt). The staff is very friendly and helped me organizing further travel (tickets, information... More
