Shangri-La Chance Hotel



The Review

Guests should note that Shangri-La York Rock Inn also goes by the name of Shangri-La Chance Hotel. It is run by two professional and friendly permanent staff members, who also double up as the chef for the in-house restaurant. Free Wi-Fi, together with sandals, filtered water, and discounted meals for all guests, are provided.

The Location

The hostel is conveniently located a few hundred metres away from the Shangri-La main bus station, making it easy for guests who are traveling by bus. Right outside the hostel, there are also stops for the local bus, which brings guests to places such as Sum Tsaling Temple or Shangri-La Old Town. The hostel is also surrounded by supermarkets and other restaurants, which can cater to all travelers' needs. However, the hostel can get a little bit noisy at night, as it is located along the main street with many buses and trucks passing by.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Dorm rooms are divided by partitions with four beds in each section. Beds and pillows are clean, but a little thin. Each bed comes with its own power socket. Bed frames can get squeaky when guests get onto the bed, but is generally acceptable. Guests also have access to a small balcony attached to the room, where they can dry their laundry. Metal lockers are also provided to guests for storage of belongings, but guests have to use their own locks.

There is only one en suite bathroom within the dorm rooms, and all bathrooms come with hot water. Shower gel and shampoo are not provided by the hostel. The bathroom is a little cramped, but still clean, and with many hooks and shelves for guests to put their belongings. Guests can also visit common bathrooms that are available on each level of the building.

Common Spaces

There is a sofa lounge by the reception on the ground floor with strong Wi-Fi and power sockets. The lounge also doubles up as a dining area for guests who choose to purchase home-cooked meals from the hostel. Guests rarely hang out in the common areas, so there is little atmosphere for travelers to meet other like-minded travelers.

The hostel reception officially opens at 9:30 a.m., so guests who need to check in or out before this time should inform staff in advance.


Given its convenient location and friendly staff, Shangri-La Chance Hotel (also known as Shangri-La York Rock Inn) is a great value-for-money option for guests who seek a balance between budget and quality service. A stay at this hostel is recommended for guests who need to stay near the bus station.
