The rooms are very comfortable, and the hostel is so conveniently placed. The staff can speak English very well and are helpful with suggestions. Highly recommended!! PS, they have a dog and he's friendly and makes you feel like you're at home!

The crew is super friendly (one of which speaks fluent English). The owners own a cat and a dog which walk around wherever you go (very friendly). The rooms are basic and a bit small (but perfect for a few days stay). The electric sheets do make a difference when it gets cold at night. There are two laundry machines... More

We were at the guesthouse in front of this and we decided to change because this one was cheaper and cleaner. Rooms are very simple (no tv, no door between bedroom and bath), but everything is clean and the common yard very beautiful. They had a labrador and a kitten very sweet. Western breakfast was good. Staff speaks English and... More

Poor service. Food was all undercooked or overcooked. False advertising. Over an hour to get it served... All round disappointed compared to the other places in the same district But the sofas are comfortable.

From the moment you walk in the door you feel the warmth of the place. The house yellow lab is as friendly as the owners. It's an all around great place to stop for a hot cup of tea or a local beer or for a full meal. Prices are extremely reasonable and the Dragoncloud Guesthouse & Restaurant will leave... More

Upon arrival, we were pretty excited about this place. It looked as if it would have the vibe of a really cool hostel (i.e.: Dragonfly Guesthouse in Dali), but unfortunately, it was merely a facade. The GOOD: Deco was pretty cool, the double room looked quite impressive for the price. There was a pool table (in playabel albeit poor condition),... More

My friend and I arrived in Shangrila without any accommodations so we were very lucky to come across Dragon Cloud! I'm a little (very) picky about staying in clean and comfortable places while my friend likes to save money. Dragoncloud was a good compromise. We stayed in adjacent rooms on the upper floor. The room was basic with all practical... More

We arrived there late at night as it is one of the only still standing hostel recommended by LP (almost all the old town was burned to the ground last January). We had the feeling that is was supposed to be closed but they opened it for us. Because it is the off season I understand that there was nobody... More

This took some finding. It's right on the edge of the destroyed area of the old town and there are no street signs in English once you get close, we were also pointed in different directions by locals, despite having the address in Chinese. We had a double room with a bathroom. It was cold, but the thick quilt and... More
