Kunming Cloudland International Youth Hostel Reviews

Great Hostel, good value! Excellent staff!

We stayed here in March 2013 and were very satisfied with the place. The double bed with en suite bath is definitely recommendable. Everything neat and clean -- not luxurious, but good deal for a hostel. Bar and the outdoor area is very cosy, too. Yet the best thing about the place is definitely its very friendly, very sweet staff. The girls at the reception speak (for Chinese terms) perfect English and helped us a great deal organizing flight tickets, trips around Kunming. Besides, when we left the place for a night and forget our jewelry, they kept it and gave it back when we returned. Special thanks to Jessica, you're a sweetheart.

Great Location and good accommodations, STAFF are very friendly

Nana will take good care of all you requests. But don't ask her for too much she must sleep occasionally. the hostel has great bar and food in the restaurant is good also. Plenty of showers and bathrooms also. Ask Nana how to go to the locals Farmers Market which is only 500Meters away. This is a really great place to visit and buy things from Food, vegetables, fruits, and meats.


Not so great

I am not so sure this place is actually a hostel, it is a very odd set up. it appears that a lot of people staying here actually live here probably at least half appear to live here full time. We paid for the best room in the place as it was the only room free but the whole time we have had all the staff sitting on the chairs and chatting all day long meaning we have no where to sit. won't come back again. very noisy at night.

USA baby

We was in this hostel in march 2006 and it was nice but we come back now and it's very different ! Why? The staff in the reception is so lazy, one girl particularly (the big one) is really unpleasant. If you want ask something you can forget! The bar is not friendly anymore, the boss want just make much money. Last time we talk together but now just pretentious with his friends. Before the music was great in the bar but now the staff don't like music and every day you listen the same one. terrible! The cooker is ok but become very expensive western food -- they make pizza! welcome to china! No, definitely this hostel lost much things. not interesting and friendly anymore.

I was here about one year ago and it was very great but now I came back and find it's very different. The staff is so lazy, you feel always disturb them when you ask something in the reception. The food is better and one girl from changrila is very professional. Before I found a spirit in the bar but now is just a normal boring bar with bad music. All the price are more expensive than before -- business business. It's not family hotel anymore.


I was there in July 2006 and enjoyed the place very much, (after I finally found it) no taxi driver seemed to know where it was. They took me to the nearby hospital, Wal-Mart, and then I finally found a girl in a shop by Wal-Mart that actually walked with me and found the place. Now that's what I call great local interaction. But back to the comments about the place. I have to say that it had a very friendly staff, and the facilities were very clean. The only thing is their directions from the airport are not complete and not easy to understand.

Great Place to meet other travellers. Has a restaurant/ bar with some western style food. Nice bedrooms with lockers and curtains. Clean rooms and friendly staff, also offers some organized tours. Has a pingpong and a pool table available for everyone.


It was easy to find (by chinese adress). The atmosphere was really friendly. The staff speaks english well. There is planty of space to hang out, which is really nice. The food was also nice, also not expensive. There is a lot of space to dry your laundry. Sometimes out dorms door was left open, which was a bit wierd, but we had a decent sized locker, so it wasn't a big issue.


Liked: Comfy bed, clean toilets Didn't like: Nothing much


Liked: Nice community space, nice atmosphere in general Didn't like: Unfriendly night guard, who was really a pain


Liked: Helpful staff. Nice, Clean rooms. Nice blankets. Many places to hang out and work. Didn't like: The bunkbeds where a little on the light side. Everytime the guy above me moved it shook a lot. It would also be nice with more places to put stuff on in the shower.


Liked: Nice room.we had a private double.tv good bed. Didn't like: If you are a non smoker do not stay at this hostel! All common areas are filled with cigarette smoke.


Liked: Very good dorms Didn't like: Staff at reception often distracted while helping you (making phone calls, helping other people etc)


Liked: Friendly and helpfull! Really nice hostel! Didn't like: z


Liked: have a good time stay with cloudland. Value for money Didn't like: Nice


Liked: It was in a good location and I liked the fact that they had a pool table and table tennis table. It was clean as well. Didn't like: The dorms were very hot at night and there were no fans to cool you down which I thought was quite poor. Not enough bathrooms were available for amount of people who needed to use them. I thought the reception staff were not so friendly.


Liked: It is really a beautiful place, nice atmosphere, nice staff, they are really helpful. Didn't like: no


Liked: Big and nice beds with own socket and lamp, big and secure lockers, lots of common areas, laundry facilities, clean bathrooms, wifi almost everywhere (although sometimes slow), helpful information on how to reach it and on onward travel. Didn't like: Staff at check-in was not helpful at all! (Staff the next day was much better)



Our hostel especially designed for hikers and travellers. The hostel is run by three experienced travellers who know the needs of other travellers just too well! We are located at the city central Zhuan Tang Park, adjacent to Walmart Hypermarket, the cinema, night market and within walking distance to Cui Hu Park, one of the great attractions in Kunming.

Turning left from the hostel and following the river, walk about 20 minutes, it leads to another park, where one can have the spectacular view of Dian Chi (historical lake in Kunming)!

Regular programmes are held at the bar of the hostel. These include slide show of places of interest and talk on different topics in connection with travel and outdoor. Hostellers can get loads of first hand information about travelling in the Mainland here.

We offer free internet and wireless, free DVD's, a guest kitchen, as well as a beautiful bar to all our guests. This "home sweet home" and "home away from home" hostel is waiting for your visit.
