This is a typical Hi hostel: standard beds, wifi, many tours on offer and a communal area. Pluses are the big garden were you can nicely chill in the sun. And they have a very nice, cute dog. It is a little bit outside the city center, about a 15 minute walk.

good location with plenty of places to eat nearby. Efficient booking and information from reception. Small garden with wifi, wifi does not work well and often not at all in rooms. Couple with baby running hostel are not very friendly. I stayed in double room which was ok but nothing special. Believe dorms are worse.

Room Tip: room 304 is next to couple with baby so bring earplugs if have this room. woman has a penetrating vo...

We came here because of the recommendation on lonely planet. We were really disappointed. The beds had literally no mattresses, only a thin blanket. The room was moldy and the bathroom weren't clean. We stayed at much better youth hostels in china with the same price.

The hostel was reasonably priced and well located but is in need of a bit of TLC.

The rooms were clean but tired and were starting to verge on the bedraggled stage. We'd stayed in other places in China for less that were far nicer. That said, Jinghong as a tourist destination is more expensive and the hostel is pretty good value for money.

Staff were friendly and cheery.

This place needs an overhaul. While it is cheap and represents reasonable value for money, the rooms are bare, neglected and the bathrooms were not clean when we stayed. The laoban was surly, and seems to find dealing with guests extremely bothersome. Other staff were sweet, but ineffectual. There are other, better options in Jinghong: use them instead.

I've been there with my boyfriend in november. A building was under construction, so we woke up everyday at 8:00. Nevermind, it's not their fault.
Their fault was that they are kind of lazy, I felt like they were making a fool of us sometimes, and room (private one) was very old, it began even t have mushrooms on the wall.
But the worse is that they take care of chinese people, but not foreigners. I explain : they rent bikes less cheaper than in the rest of the city. So we wanted to book 2 (there are only 4). But they said it was unbookable, that it was the 1st come 1st served rule. Ok, no problem, so the day after we woke up at 7, and we were downstairs at 7:30, and the lady told us that we couldn't take them because people booked them the day before ! I thought we couldn't book ?? And 4 chinese people came and ran off with the bikes ! So I asked her if they were kind of racist, and as soon as I said that, she woke up the manager who said we could take the employees bikes...for free...
But they didn't talk anymore to us during the stay, even to my "hello" they didn't answered...

This is a fun hostel with all the needed services. We stayed in a private, double room. Found it very spacious and comfortable. Though simple. The hostel had useful services, such as laundry, internet, and bicycle rental. Location is pretty good for walking around the small city of Jinghong.

I'd recommend the place, and I'd probably stay there again.
