Great bargain Hostel. Clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The food is great with a western and vegetarian menu at good prices. It's close to lots of parks and shopping. Not to far from the amazing Green Lake park and the Zoo was excellent too. I highly recommend this place!

I stayed in one of the female dorm rooms. Getting to the hostel was painless, I printed out the address in Chinese and English and caught a taxi from the airport, the driver was familiar with the hostel. The beds in the hostel were really comfortable. I stayed for about 3-4 nights in late September, and came back to stay...

There's a lot Kunmings Cloudland hostel gets right (comfortable beds, cheap laundry service, hot showers and big lockers) but there's a hell of a lot it gets wrong too. It feels more like a raggy hotel than a hostel that's predominately frequented by Chinese travelers with pretty incompetent staff and few amenities back packers want such as a kitchen, eating...

The best features of this hostel are its common areas---rooftop and garden areas where people can meet, play ping pong, music, etc. Food is not bad, though a little more expensive than eating at nearby Chinese restaurants. The weak point is the staff---the ones I met could barely speak English, and were not helpful or informative at all. Dorm rooms...

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.
