Reviewed 7 October 2012

we stayed in their second property which is a good 5 min walk from the night time noise of shangri-la. the room was really nice (with a good western bathroom), but the staff was usually at the other hostel so it'd be hard to stay there with out a phone. the staff weren't particularly attentive or helpful (wouldn't buy our bus tickets), but it's a good place to stay if you want some privacy and a nicer room on a budget.

Stayed one night in a double room with bathroom.
Staff were nice and come and got us when we couldn't find it.
The room was very basic, the bed had no mattress which made sleeping very uncomfortable, it did have an electric blanket which worked ok.
The bathroom was basic but had not been cleaned, bin not emptied ( u know what that means in a Chinese bathroom), basin filthy and hair clogging shower waste.
The communal area was really nice, good fire and general atmosphere.
If the room had a mattress and bathroom was properly cleaned it would have been really nice.

“stay in the second property-- it is newer, quieter, and has really nice bathrooms.”
