We had a compact, comfortable room with a small open terrace in front of the room extending along the hallway in which to sit and relax. For a compact room, it was well-equipped with hair dryer, TV, kettle, kleenex, hand and bath soap and telephone. For a small charge, laundry could be done for you and hung to dry. When... More

Firstly, the hotel is conveniently located, close to the main areas but not so close that it is too noisy. It can be a little loud at night, but I am afraid this will be true of anywhere in Lijiang Old Town. Judy runs the place well, has exceptional English, and went out of her way to help us, including... More

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... More

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!
