Kunming Glad Inn




The Hostelz.com Review

Kunming Glad Inn is huge, with a large assortment of different room types to suit all sorts of travelers. The hostel only has one staff member, who runs the entire hostel all by himself, and is extremely friendly and committed. Free Wi-Fi is also provided. The hostel has great service, cleanliness, and facilities in general, and will be able to meet the needs of the average traveler.

The Location

The hostel is located a fifteen-minute walk away from the Kunming main train station, making it convenient for guests arriving by train. While the walk may seem straightforward, it requires guests to cross a series of overhead bridges and walk along highways in order to get to the hostel.

The building in which the hostel is housed is located amongst a cluster of commercial buildings with few occupants, so the surrounding environment is generally really quiet. However, there may be large groups of people loitering around the streets nearby, so guests who are returning late to the hostel should take precautions for their belongings and safety.

As the hostel is located near commercial buildings, there are not many food options aside from Walmart, and a small food street, which is fifteen minutes away from the hostel. However, guests can easily walk back to the train station, where there are plenty of options available.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The metal gate at the main entrance and each individual hostel room are secured by a PIN, which will be given to guests upon check-in. All hostel rooms are equipped with a desk and lockers. Beds and pillows are extremely comfortable, and each bed comes with its own power socket. The hostel is extremely understanding and kind, and will try their best to spread guests out to different dorm rooms in order to maximise their comfort, rather than trying to squeeze all guests into the same room.

There is one communal bathroom on each level. Each bathroom comes with at least five private shower cubicles with warm water and toilets, and two hair dryers. However, no shampoo and shower gel are provided. Bathrooms are extremely clean and well maintained, with Western-style toilet seats.

Common Spaces

The hostel has numerous sofa areas on all levels, with strong Wi-Fi in each area. There is also a balcony area on the fourth level with poolside style seats for suntanning. The main lounge also has a kitchen with an in-house chef; guests can order meals from the kitchen at any of the meal times throughout the day for a fee.


Kunming Glad Inn is a great hostel for guests who need to stay near the train station. The hostel provides great value for money with the kind of service standards provided to guests. However, as the hostel is located far away from the Kunming city areas, or the bus station, guests who do not want to travel too far could consider seeking alternative arrangements instead.
