The hostel is great (even in winter!) the view is great and the staff is very helpful. You can hike around the hostel easily. Everything is very clean and you can do your laundry (cheap)
A great hostel! Would definitely reccomend anyone to stay here. Very friendly staff, great location with a nice view over Kangding from the common areas
I liked that bus station is in walking distance etc. 30 min. View on the hill with night lights was nice.
I think for what you pay its kind of overrated place. If I am next time in Kangding I will choose another establishment. Very basic build house with some wooden walls and wooden floor, where you can see mud floor and you get that feel its not very clean nor well build. I also disliked location on the hill with rather low class feel (smell, dog poops etc). I know that its Kangding, but I simply expected more for the price. I also disliked, that it was first accommodation in china where I had to fill registration form on my own. I always just had to give a passport for scan. Its a small thing, but the accommodation is not exactly super lowcost so I was surprised.
Super nice and cozy hostel. The staff was absolutely friendly and helped a lot with every question. Especially the hike up to the mountain is awesome and free. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.
