James S. from United States
Stayed 2 nights in August 2016
We stayed for 2 nights and were pretty much in the hostel the entire time because my girlfriend badly sprained her ankle and was on crutches. Positives - The location of the hostel is very good. It is centrally located in Kunming with many restaurants, shopping options, and buses nearby. The food in the restaurant was quite good and the prices (for food and for rooms) were very reasonable, even for backpackers on tight budgets. Negatives - Our room was very dark. We read this in reviews before we came but did not take it seriously. There are no windows to the outside and the overhead lights are not bright. We had to use headlamps. The staff and other guests were not very friendly. Despite the fact that I had to carry my girlfriend up the stairs and she was in lots of pain and was icing her foot, not one employee asked what happened or if they could help. We had to figure out how to get to the hospital to get X-rays on our own. Maybe they were just trying to stay out of our business or maybe they didn't speak enough English but we thought this was a bit strange. Note - They are very strict about outside food and drinks. At night, the hostel becomes a bar and restaurant (with many patrons who are not staying in the hostel) and we think this must be a major source of revenue for them.

They locked the place at midnight so you might have to get to the place early. Room was quite miserable. Very boring design of standard room also the room is really dark even the lights are on. however the dorm was quite ok since its bright inside. Service was okay. Byt they really have to renovate the place!

An average hostel
We got a triple bed room for a night. The bed is clean and confortable. Bathroom has no door. What I love most about this place is, there are lots of travelling tips given on the walls and also bus information for almost all attractions printed as a little note for guest to pick up.

No air-conditioning???!!
everything was fine except for the air-conditioning. In the reservation, it stated there clearly of the facility where air-conditioner is part of the facilities in the room but when I checked in the room, the customer service told me that all the rooms in the Hostel are without air-conditioner!! It was about to have argument with the hotel, but fortunately the customer service willingly provided a portable table fan for my usage in the room. thank God! at the same moment, there's another customer requesting for canceling the room he booked as he also realized there's no air-conditioning as stated in his reservation. I left a note to the customer service when checking out the hotel the next day, to make sure they review and revise the content of facilities written in the websites that promote their hotel reservation so that we don't feel cheated/annoyed/dissatisfied when we realize later that the facilities provided are not as what written in the reservation!!

This is the second time staying in the Hump. Liked the location and the environment. Liked the common place where there are lots of washbasins, bathrooms and toilets which are all well maintained. Did not like the bathroom in the room though as it was without door.
