We travelled with 2 small kids and stayed for 2 nights.
Location is great out of the crowd and noise.
The place is very chilled out, with a backpacker's feel to it. It is no frill but the deco is original. It's unfortunate there is so many flies in the common room ( So many that it puts you off eating there). Also, food is average So you better off eating out ( try Bakery 88, it's fantastic)
Rooms are spacious and clean. Due to water shortage, the bathroom smelled a bit of gutter ( but there is nothing to do about it but buy incense).
The staff is very helpful and friendly.
Altogether a good address To stay while in Dali. I would go back there.
