Bookings must be made directly on their website, by leaving a message in the forum - can be a challenge if you don't read Chinese. Anyway here is the address: www.luguparadise.cn. Deposit must be made by bank transfer or Alipay, again a challenge if you don't have any Chinese bank account!
Aside from that, the hostel is located on the Lige peninsula, extending into the lake. It's really at the tip of the peninsula, not blocked by anything else, so you get unbeatable views and the balconies are all directly above the water. We had a room on second floor (Star Room) for RMB260 per night. Very spacious with king sized bed. Bean bags on the dangerously looking balcony. The first night I opened the doors and stepped onto the balcony, to be greeted by thousands of brilliant stars seemingly within reach - unforgettable memory!
Because we were pick-pocketed in Lijiang, we arrived in Lugu without much cash. The owner kindly helped to get 1000rmb cash for us through Alipay arrangement.
The three dogs they own were extremely friendly and love to play catch!
Only down side was the amount of insects attracted by lights at night. Impossible to keep windows open~
