      Great place to stay in the right season”
      Location of the hostel is good and bad - good because it is far away from the crowds, with great views of the plains and mountains; but bad because this means it is inconvenient to get to the nearest amenities. Hostel offers transport services, but pickup/dropoff points are very inflexible (only a specific spot in the old town, for example). Nearest places (Shika mountain, old town) are at an affordable 4yuan/person, but other than that, prices are steep (airport at 15yuan/person, songzanlin monastery at 20yuan/person). Private transport which the hostel recommended was also of suspect quality (200yuan/day to pudacuo NP). Visited in early May and there was no longer heating available, which made for slightly uncomfortable nights.

      Great place to relax :)”
      The hostel was quite empty when I was there so it was a quiet stay. The owners were very helpful and cooked a great meal :) This place is quite out of the way so the only meal option is to eat at the hostel (good local chinese food). If you want to snack then you would have to bring your own. There is a very big grassland just outside the hostel which makes it great!!

      Best experience in shangri-la ”
      Best View , Helpful staff , Nice Room
      We had stay with laoshay for 3 days and it should be the best experience in shangri-la. The staff is so nice and helpful which let us feel like home. The guest house just next to the 石卡雪山,just 5 mins drive can reach to the entrance. Even those is far from the city, but it should the best view u can see there like the widest blue sky and twinkle little star. The wifi service is it so great that you can read facebook , Instragam even google. We likes sitting in the common area talk with ppl and other guest. No worry abt where to go or what to do next , the staff will recommend all kind of choice for you. So we do have a wonderful stay here !!! We will be back in autumn ! Haha

      Beautiful scenary but need maintenance”
      scenary, staff's assistance, relaxing ambience
      It was a mixture of good and bad feeling. Good: staff was very helpful in logistic and able to help arrange day trip. The scenary around is very beautiful. Bad: hotel interior needs maintenance I.e bathroom : shower head and the pipe is leaking, near nil hot water supply, light at the basin was having water leaking & sipping through - dangerous Noises can be heard from other rooms Room has no heater at the first night. Luckily the bed heater was working

      A place like heaven”
      Surrounding, food, staff performance
      I read many bad reviews about this hostel which discouraged me to make a booking but when I stay my first night here, I continued another 2 nights coz' it is really lovely and unique. The wooden house and rooms are unique and beautiful, the food is good whether western or local. The unique point of this hostel is it located at the piece of grassland, there are horses, cows and other animals walk around here which give you a very peaceful feel. The transportation service to downtown is good and not expensive. It is not far as well. Another point that I really can't forget to share is the staff here are really helpful and kind. The hospitality is really excellent. If you decline this hostel due the bad reviews and I guarantee you will regret. Please give a try

      clean, location, shuttle service
      I was very happy with my stay at the Lao Shay Youth Hostel. Nice, clean and traditional wooden rooms.. maybe a little cold but at night was ok since there were electric kettles. The location is great for travellers wishing to stay in the middle of the grassland around Shangri-la. They have bike rental service and from there can cycle around Napa hai area or go to Shika Snow Mountain. I really appreciated also the shuttle bus they offer from and to Shangri-la, very useful. The food is also very good, including international breakfast and delicious Yunnan coffee. Would suggest it to my friends

      Location, Montain, Grass Field
      My stay was good, Good sleep in night, But wash room not good, They did not give Tooth Brush & Comb then we will have to buy. They are just earning money. If you take this hotel then you will have to pay more if you want to stay in this hotel that only for Location. Near About 5-6 Km from City Center. They have car and you can go in 6 CYN but if you want to come back then you will have to pay to taxi 20~30 RMB. Wash room is horible. But I will stay here again.

      Nice and remote hostel with wonderful environment”
      Beautiful surrounding area, quite and cozy, with pick-up services
      The hostel provided pick-up services from the old town of Shangri-la, which is very convenient to backpacker like us. The hostel is located quite far away from town, approx. a 20 minutes drive. Yet the surrounding area is terrific. Endless grassland, animals, flowers field. The hostel itself is also quite cozy and home-like. The food provided is of average quality and price.

      Our stay was alright. Our power was only activated between 8pm and 8am. The hot water was about the same. We had many cold nights. The staff was nice enough but since our chinese wasn't very good and they didn't speak much english, they were not very accommodating. Its not ready for international tourists yet.

      Nice Scenery, Far from Town”
      Nice view and also can see airplane landing
      We stayed here for 1 night and i was staying in twin room. The scenery is really beautiful especially in the morning before all the yaks and cows go to Napahai. U can also see airplane at very low height since here is very near to airport. The service here is not as bad as what have i read but the lady and guy at the counter really showed "cool face" when we complaining something to them. I still satisfied with the room though the television was malfunctioned. My advice is stay here for 1 night only because here is quite a distance from town, and there's nothing here except green field. U can only depend on the transport here to go town, quite inconvenient...
