There are many nice places to stay in old town, but this one is especially homey. The place is a cozy, Tibetan style building that has comfortable heated beds, and good clean facilities. The common room is a good place to meet other people and warm up by the wood stove. Bonus: there is a cute cat that enjoys sleeping... More

This hostel is just the cutest! We booked a double private room and it was very nicely decorated. The bed was big and the electric blanket was very cozy. Shangri la can get a bit cold, but once the sun comes out, it's pretty warm. The owner of the hostel was very helpful and went out of his way to... More

What a wonderful hostel. Not the flashiest, not the greatest facilities, but so homely, warm and hospitable. The owners went out of their way to look after us. We stayed three nights, and then returned for our last night in Yunnan. Even though they were closed, they opened especially for us. The food was excellent, we loved the Yak burger,... More

A very nice place to stay in Shangri-la. The building is in the traditional style and the rooms and bathrooms are clean and very homely. But the best experience is the hospitality of the Korean owner and his wife (who both speak English very well). Besides it is a great place to meet other travelers. I definitely recommend travelers to... More

I stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. It's a very homey place with clean rooms and bathrooms with great staff serving a delicious menu. The yak burger is a must at least once. Guests that stay here aren't the typical complaining cheapos that you get in other guesthouses. I've met some very interesting and respectful people here--maybe it's the... More

Motels Tibetan style is impressive. I had 2 nights here and felt extremely satisfied with the affordable, convenient location for transportation and meals. Innkeeper friendly, enthusiastic tourist information guide for tourists. There is also a available some sightseeing tours with reasonable price.

Tavern 47 is definitely the best hostel in shangrila-la! The rooms are very well kept and it is built in the traditional fashion that really gives it character. The hosts are a very cute couple who will go out of the way to make you feel at home and whip up a mean meal, both Chinese and Korean! My friend... More

Cheap dorm (40 ¥), electric blankets, small and short nirmal blankets :(, cosy fire place, authentic tibetian house in the old town, good food, 2 free-to-use windows computers. Hostel seems to attract long distance cyclists coming back into civilisation, which are welcomed by very friendly staff and brought a good vibe! Sehr scheen gsi, tuisig Dank!
