“Great Place!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

I stayed a couple nights here and it was great. The rooms were well setup and everything you need was provided. What I liked the most were the people working there, who were quite friendly and helpful. They even helped me buy my bus ticket back to Kunming and get it delivered to the hostel. Challenge them to a game of Catan for extra fun!

me and my husband we've been in China for our honeymoon, and we stayed 3 nights in this bed and breakfast: Judy, the owner, speaks english very well, and she's very kind, always ready to help us. Our room was very clean, romantic and cosy, with everything U need to feeling home.I can confirm all the positive review about this place, but there is something more...If U reserve a room in this B&B don't miss:
1) a dinner cooked from Judy's dad, we tasted best chicken in China in a traditional chinese family atmosphere
2) REAL yak meat... very close to B&B there is a restaurant very cheap, where U can try this yunnan traditional dish
3) take some rest in the B&B garden, with Judy's dogs, flowers, a swing seat and a good book.. life is about little pleasures, and this B&B is the right place to enjoy them!

We stayed there for 3 nights.

Pros:
- Very helpful and friendly owners who arranged transportation and recommended food places
- Cosy atmosphere
- No-shoe-in-bedroom policy is great!
- Rooms were extremely clean and well-appointed
- Great location, off the main shopping street
- 2 cute dogs

Cons:
- Didn't manage to sleep well due to thin walls, general street noise and inconsiderate fellow guests...dogs barked at night whenever there was noise outside the main door

All in all, if you are looking for a quiet place with less crowd, Shuhe old town might be a better choice.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the upper floor.

The owner, Judy, is so helpful and speaks great English. We stayed for one night and kept a room for the full next day. The rooms are cosy, clean and have everything one need to stay comfortable.

We had an excellent stay for 4 nights at the Shanghai Family No. 68 Hostel. Rooms are clean (including toilet) with 24 hrs hot water supply. Judy and her family are very helpful in giving us touring advice. This hostel has made our Lijiang experience very unique and memorable! Highly recommend!

The family that owns the place makes all the difference. Extremely helpful and genuinely friendly, we got many tips on where to go and what to do during our stay there. Lovely dogs, clean rooms and a nice balcony to rest and make plans for the next day. Will definitely stay there again! Thanks to 小雪,老板 and 老板娘!

Room Tip: Second storey rooms are quieter.

We stayed for 10 days in Lijiang, and started and finished our stay here. Judy was extremely helpful with organising our day trips and we loved her 2 dogs... It was lovely sitting on the balcony in the sun reading and relaxing. The rest of her family were just as lovely, even though there was a language barrier. Both rooms we stayed in were clean and comfortable and we enjoyed playing bored games with Judy and her mother at night. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here, and we would be sure to stay here again if we ever return :D
