I stayed in House & White for a few days in mid November so I could see Lijiang and head off to do Tiger Leaping Gorge. I picked this hostel because it's out of the city centre, as I find Lijiang old town to be slightly tacky. I had an excellent stay - I stayed in a 4 bedroom dormitory,...

Stayed here about a year ago and the hostel was alright. However, there was this creepy guy there who was staring at us all the time and finally caused us to retreat in our room. Right after we left the hostel, he contacted me and my friend via facebook as well as instagram, saying that he got our information from...

This hostel is located outside of Lijiang town at a very nice lake with a fantastic view of the Yulong snow mountain. Even if it is not conveniently located in the old town of Lijiang, we loved the location away from the inner city hustle. In addition it is very easy to get around by bike and also visit baisha...

I liked it all in everything. This YHA hostel is located in the midway between Lijiang ("Dayan") old town and Shuhe old town. Easily accessible by bus or bike. Quiet environment and that means, you can enjoy a very beautiful view of Qingxi Reservoir and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The working staff are also super friendly, warmhearted and helpful. Don't...

I stayed four nights at this hostel and enjoyed my stay very much. I had a single room which was great: Spacious room, big bed, big bathroom and a nice balcony with a view.
