Motels Tibetan style is impressive. I had 2 nights here and felt extremely satisfied with the affordable, convenient location for transportation and meals. Innkeeper friendly, enthusiastic tourist information guide for tourists. There is also a available some sightseeing tours with reasonable price.

Tavern 47 is definitely the best hostel in shangrila-la! The rooms are very well kept and it is built in the traditional fashion that really gives it character. The hosts are a very cute couple who will go out of the way to make you feel at home and whip up a mean meal, both Chinese and Korean! My friend...

Cheap dorm (40 ¥), electric blankets, small and short nirmal blankets :(, cosy fire place, authentic tibetian house in the old town, good food, 2 free-to-use windows computers. Hostel seems to attract long distance cyclists coming back into civilisation, which are welcomed by very friendly staff and brought a good vibe! Sehr scheen gsi, tuisig Dank!

Stayed in the dorm which never felt too cold. They provide electric blankets, but me and my friends never needed it. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We received lots of tips on where to go and what to do which was much appreciated. The decor of the house is great, cosy with character. There is nice stove to...

We stayed in a private double room with ensuite (¥150 per night) in October 2015. We initially had some trouble booking a room as there were no rooms available online but when we called they had lots of rooms available. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our lovely, Tibetan style room. The room was not heated...

Jun & Co are the folks you want to feel good in Shangri-La. Expect to meet more Korean folks than Han or Tibetan even. Good habitation, food, suggestion for onward connection. Very relaxed - especially having come from the hick-hick backroads of Western Sichuan. You are in good hands here. Food good too. I reckon that Koreans & Tibetans get...

The place is decent. The rooms are ok and rather clean, which, however, cannot be said about the public toilets and sinks. The staff is nice on a personal level but only medium helpful. In my opinion the place has seen better days. I wouldnt really choose it again.
