“value for your money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

Cool laid back place outside of Shangri La, a mini bus will take you there upon request for a cheap fair. The staff is nice and live at local pace.
No internet before 7pm and they shut down the restaurant (and internet) at 11pm, not sure why.
Food's alright, no heating in the rooms but heated blankets. went there a few times and will again. Dorms and rooms are ok even though the dorm beds are a little short.
Bonus: you see the planes landing at the airport from the hotel without seeing the airport, makes you think those big planes are landing on the grass. quite cool pictures to get out of this.

It's may be late to write the review cause i visited the hotel since July 2010 but i still remember the hotel and staffs well...i loved the place and everything there. My road trip found the best relaxation beacuse of this hotel. I will go back there again and good for me to stayed there. The location not near by thr old town but that's not the problem beacuse they're provide you transfer only 3 Yuan per person/way and if you stay there you will no need to go the old town often...you will be in love with the view and the food there so yummm. The Tibetan+Chinese style so cozy and warm.

The most beautiful location you can think of. Right in the middle of a meadow. Wild horses and yaks all around. 5 min. by car outside Shangri-La. But the hostel provides a 3 yuan taxidrive in and out the city. Also they rent good bicycles. Take the little bit more expensive mountainbikes (you need the gears)
The room was very cozy and comfortable. A little bit dated, but still charming. Nice balcony. The food in the hostel is excellent. The staff is very helpful and friendly. This hostel is mainly visited by Chinese but the lady at the desk speaks both very good English and French.
We thought the place was magical as well all of the Shangri-La area! We will come back here some day soon.
