Good place to meet people! Clean and confortable; but too few showers and commun parts are quit cold. Chinese and western food are ok. Wifi connexion is not very good. Staff are professional, they can book some ticket for us with fees.

We are a couple traveling china and we took 2 dorm beds because the private room was extremly expensive. The hostel locationis OK, with multiple bus lines around it, but the instructions of how to get to it were horrible and we ended up taking a cab. The hostel itself looks good, the facilities are clean and the staff is...

Really nice hostel in Kunming. It is very clean and has a nice atmosphere. The rooms are fairly spacious, and the communal areas are characterful. Nice ambiance in the bar area. Staff were very helpful with bookings, and most spoke very good English. Lots of information available for you to get to sites and train station etc using public transport....

Comparing the one I stayed before in Kunming, I had a better time staying in Cloudland. Personally, cleanliness is always on top of my demand, here I was happy with. I had a alcohol spray for the western style toilet. In the dorm, you have a private locker to keep your personally precious belongings. Generally, the atmosphere was good too....

Slightly outside the city center (15 min walk) this hostel offers great atmosphere and a welcome retreat after exploring. The restaurant offers a wide selection of food, there is plenty of common space to hang out, and the dorms are nice. I personally enjoyed the charms of the building, decorated with a lot of amazing photographs.

This hostel is great for foreign backpackers. It has all the necessities you need after a looong bus/train ride! Always had hot water and toilets were super clean! Food was terrible though. Apart from breakfast, don't eat anything else here!! The pizza was just disgusting!!! However, the beers were cheap and the staff were friendly enough!

This was probably the most thought-out hostels we stayed at in China. it was beautifully decorated in a local Yunnan / Tibetan style, it had a cool courtyard, an awesome bar/cafe area, and the location was very convenient. It seems like it was founded by two Australian backpackers so they knew what they were doing. Unfortunately, it seems like the...
