          Good Vibe”

          Accessibility, close to restaurants, nice bar

          The Hump Youth Hostel: was on the 3rd floor. A pool table greets. A bar extends out the roof deck. The people speak very little English. Private rooms are at the farthest end of the huge compound. The rooms were dark, which makes reading impossible. Bathrooms were clean, hot water adequate. Our room was facing the street and could be noisy at times but was not a bother at all. We stayed for one night only. We had late night snacks and food was pretty good, likewise with breakfast. They served good coffee , fresh orange juice. A fun place with ok food.

          affordable, excellent location, relaxed atmosphere

          It must be noted that the two pathways to the entrance of the hotel smell because of sewage water escaping onto the pathways. The hotel and neighboring businesses should urge the city management to solve this problem.

          The staff was very helpful and willing to help me resolve the issue where the booking system misplaced the booking (6-people mixed dormitory) while the hostel only has 6-female dormitory room. She was willing to upgrade my booking to double room with minimal increment of payment. The staff also helped me in my preparation to travel within the city. The location was quite strategic as you can easily get a bus just outside the main road.

          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.

          Cheap food and beer, friendly and helpful staff, good location.

          A great place, but maybe not during winter. The patio bar/restaurant, I'm imagining, would be awesome when it is warm, but in December, the entire hostel was cold, especially the rooms. The staff though went over and above, and helped us many times to book tickets for buses, trains, etc.

          A very pleasant stay, The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel itself has an old world Chinese character and felt like you were in a Chinese period drama but still had modern amenities. Nice friendly bar area with western drinks and nice roof top dining/drinking area. Good breakfast (western & Chinese) available with discount for hostel guests. Electric blankets on bed but no heating although we were just warm enough. Several good local restaurants in the immediate area. Don't be put off by entrance through small back alley

          Overrated”

          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.

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.

          Location/location/location

          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!!

It's next to Jinbi Square but the hostel on 3rd floor, in case you have many luggages it could make you exhaust. We enjoy surrounding of Jinbi Square until late night many restaurants to tried Yunan style food. Bed is big enough with heater.

          Good location - centrally located in shopping areas and easy to access public tranport

          If you choose the promotion room please do not expect it will be in a good location. My room is facing the back of restaurants and it was smelly and noisy till mid night. Even at 3 am, the waitress were still shocking others. I understandt that all rooms' toilet have no doors. So if you are using the washroom, your roomate is better stay outside. Other than that, the fromt desk is not helpful. If you ask more, they will show you a sour face. But this is the characterics of china people. Nevertheless, if you don't have budget you cannot compliant too much because it is really cheap for such a good location.
