Holly's Hostel

Reviewed January 17, 2011

Our first night was spent in a filthy expensive hotel that was loud, smoky, and absolutely disgusting. This hostel was hostel-quality, but nice and clean, safe, quiet at night, friendly extremely helpful staff, good food. It was cold and amenities were basic (no glass in windows, just a curtain over the hole). But, hot water and space heater worked so it was fine. And it didn't reek like smoke, barf, or anything else! Just fresh air. The staff were really great and helped us plan visits to the panda center and the opera, eat, get phone cards, change money, use the internet, and get rides to the airport. Walkable to some cool neighborhoods although the alleyway location was a bit intimidating at first. The price was right, too!

A simpel place that provides you what you need: a clean room with a good bed and bathroom. The location is perfect, at the edge of the tibetan quarters and close to the center. The staff is very friendly and speaks good english. I alwoays use the pickup-service from the airport.

The hotel here was pretty awful all round. The reception area seemed OK but as soon as we went upstairs to our room we were met by an unclean and quite smelly room, bathroom included.

The so called restaurant in the hotel was not much better. It didn't look very clean and there was never anyone using it - a sure sign to avoid and go elsewhere.

The staff here were quite helpful and the tour they arranged to the Panda Breeding Centre was really good and cheap.

Holly’s hostel is in a great location, opposite the tourist precinct of wuhouchi gardens.

The rooms are basic but very reasonable for the price. Importantly in summer, the air conditioner worked! We enjoyed the roof top restaurant and found the staff very helpful in arranging tours and suggesting places to visit. The panda tour run through the hotel was very well organised and not overpriced.

The hotel was a cab or bus ride to the main part of town however there is so much to see near here, we found walking around was great. Plus cab rides are very cheap.

We brought a tour from this hotel - a 9 day Land Cruiser trip from Chengdu to Lhasa. Depsite repeated attempts to get a nailed down intinerary from the hotel owner who arranged this - and assurances that our travel permits would allow us all to do all we wanted to do, it ended up we could do very litte of what we requested because of restrictions on our permits and so we got to Lhasa a day early - although were denied a day's refund.

We felt we were misled by the owner and so would advise other travellers to exercise caution when using servises offered by this hotel
