Currently there are 2 Mama Naxi hostels in Lijiang.
We stayed at Mama Naxi #3 the first night (where Mama Naxi herself lives) and Mama Naxi #1 (the old/original location) on a second night after going to Tiger Leaping Gorge.
Mama's meal (held at MN#3) is very good as people say. You'll get to try a few Naxi dishes and probably meet other travellers. Mama definately is kind and welcoming by default, but showed a bad temper when we tried to check-in when none of her staff were about, and again when we came home at 11.30pm and she'd just gone to bed in the lobby.
Mama Naxi #1 was the far better experience. The staff member there was very polite and helpful and the place was quieter and more relaxed than #1. I'd suggest staying at #1 so you can keep Mama at a reasonable distance, and you won't have to wake her up if you stay out past 11pm.
