I can recommend this guesthouse for backpackers and families who visit Dali area. The front desk staff speaks English and can help with a lot of service. Rooms are clean. Coffee and other drinks in the inhouse lounge area are resonably priced, food quality is 3/5, i therefore recommend eating outside.

I would give this place a higher rating if the staff were a bit more helpful and the menu was a fair price. The place its self however is very clean and relaxing, if you aren't trying to organize anything I'd probably even recommend it.

We spent four nights in this guesthouse. We had rooms in the boutique area, who were very good, spacious, nice bed, hot water, quiet, good wifi. We enjoyed the public area with the restaurant, games, it was also an opportunity to meet with other travelers. The stuff was helpful, but not all of them spoke English. They helped us arrange...

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel and enjoyed every moment of it. The prices are super reasonable, even for higher luxury rooms type. The dorms are super cheap and comfortable. The location of the guesthouse is 2 minute walking from the old city of Dali, which allows you to walk at night for a beer or dinner without...

We had read a lot of great reviews about this hostel and were a little disappointed. It was large and sprawling and lacked atmosphere and character. Staff were overall nice and friendly. There was no inside space so in February it was very cold. Dorms were clean and spacious, with electric blankets. Close to old city but you had to...

Perfect located, just out of the busy centre of Dali ancient city. When you cross the highway 241 is very easy to find. Follow the signs. Hostel is clean and has very nice beds. Nice bathroom with brand new shower. We booked the expensive, deluxe room. This was well valued for your money. The last night we had a cheaper...

We arrived later than expected as (silly us) got off the bus way too early...my advice take the bus with no number from the train station all the way to the temple and walk back about 15 minutes following the traffic - perfect. The welcome from Amber on reception was fantastic. She was so very happy, asking about us and...

I loved everything about this place untill we had to check out. We asked for another hour for check out. They wanted more money. That was just greedy and lame. I have never heard of such a thing. For one hour extra?? It's too bad because this place is really great and then we leave with a bad taste. I...

I've been to about ten hostels before, but Jade Emu is the first one I've been to that actually delivered what I'd always heard about. They have a variety of rooms from 8 bed dorms to private rooms. The rooms are above average quality for China and were kept clean during my time there. The common area is great. They...
