Dengba Hostel No.1 Kangding
Ranked #23 of 82 Hotels in Kangding County
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We arrived on a rainy day and were looking forward to enjoying the cosy environment described in previous reviews. Beds in single rooms were filthy with dead bugs in them and dormitory rooms were packed with stuff and people eating instant noodles in bed. TV was heard at full volume until late at night. Writing is scrawled all over the walls, which some people may be into, but personally I think makes the place look a mess. Sitting area was also full of people sleeping on the benches in the morning.

Staff were friendly enough at first but not very helpful, and continuously pushed us to take their own driver on the *very* long one-day circuit around the sights near Kangding. When I explained that we thought that was maybe a bit of a rushed schedule and we would perhaps want to spend more time at some of the locations, they were pretty condescending, rubbished the idea and told there was nothing interesting to see at Xinduqiao and Tagong anyway. We're now in Tagong after stopping for a pleasant walk at both Zheduoshan and Xinduqiao which took us most of the day - I can't imagine how rushed the trip must be to see all the other sights in their circuit.

Would definitely not stay again.

Room Tip: Avoid the dorms if possible

Have visited this hostel several times!
This hostel/inn is reasonably comfortable hostel accommodation in Kangding. Rooms are a reasonable size with attached bathroom (squat toilet under a shower) in the normal Chinese style and TV. Generally clean. Extremely helpful staff who allow us to use their washing machine and internet.. Very friendly & helpful staff. Close to the centre of town! Will return again and again!

Now operating under the name "DengBa Hostel", this hostel/inn is reasonably comfortable hostel accommodation in Kangding. Rooms are a reasonable size with attached bathroom (squat toilet under a shower) in the normal Chinese style and TV. Generally clean, but don't look too closely under beds! Satisfactory air conditioning. Common area of tables and benches has a friendly atmosphere and you are able to use the attached kitchen. Friendly staff who will help you book onward transport (bus/car/minibus) to Tagong or Litang or elsewhere and give OK advice on what other cities in the far west are open to travellers.
