Reviewed 20 November 2016

From the moment we arrived here, it was clear that they cannot cope. We were kept waiting an hour for the room as it was being cleaned - well it wasn't. Cigarette buts and old used tissues on the floor, filthy bathroom and hairs in the bed. Nasty. Dinner is a similar experience. They are so busy, we ordered at 6 and they seemed to serve everyone else (who were in bigger groups) and eventually we got ours at 7.45. Our room was underneath the terrace and we were kept awake by a large group of visitors who weren't there for the walking. Then they left a door open that slammed all night. Don't stay here, other places in the village looked nice.

stayed in a private room for one night.
the room was ok and we had nice view over the gorge. the main problem was the bathroom whice was full with mold and looked more like a cemetery for diferent kinds of insects than a place to take a shower. food was good and the prices were reasonable.

Stayed here while we did tiger leaping. The room was ok and the buildings aspect and design amazing but the bathroom was horrific. We aren't fussy but the smell or raw sewerage, mould on the walls and used plastic soap packets etc shows they just don't care. Top three worst places we have stayed in 3 months of backpacking. Upon arrival reception was rude and tried to flog us rooms for 300. Ended up paying a 100. We had breakfast here fried egg on naxi bread. They messed up our order and then when it did come the egg was dripping in oil and bread wasn't completely uncooked. Despite not staying at come inn we went for drinks and dinner there and the service and food was amazing! Some Of the people we chatted to who were staying there said it was great and super clean. Support someone who actually cares about their customers. Stay at come inn.

Stayed: September 2016

We decided to sleep at Come Inn (about 5 minutes before Halfway) and paid 80 yuan for a private room w/private bath. However, we went to the Halfway Lodge for dinner and met tons of travelers. It was clearly THE place that most people stayed. We were happy with our decision because we met some other travelers who were paying 200 yuan for a private room at Halfway. Try the mushrooms, banana pie, chicken with chilies, and tomato and egg soup - the meal was spectacular after a day of hiking.

I spent a night here while hiking the gorge and it was wonderful! The food was delicious (they even made me a vegan meal, yay), the view from my room was incredible, and the overall vibe was really great. I met some awesome people there, and I'm not someone who meets awesome people everywhere. Definitely stay here if you get a chance. I was sad to leave, and hope to get back there some day.
