Maybe I had a bad experience
After reading a lot of good reviews on the hump we thought it would be a nice place to stay during our short stop over in KunMing. However, we did leave with mixed reviews on the place, as it did not quite live up to expectations. Pros -- Cheap (35RMB for basic room); Close to town and main railway; Exceptionally clean, the cleaners would be waiting outside to clean the shower/toilet once you had finished; Nice bar with a really great view of the sunset; You get your first beer for free. Cons/bad experience -- The room said it was with a fan, it was but there is no way to plug it in unless you carry an extension cord with you. As you can imagine with 10 people in a room the heat was very unpleasant. When we arrived the lock on our locker had been ripped off, granted they called someone to repair it straight away and gave us a new locker. However, this one would not open either. At 7.15am the cleaners come into the dorm and started cleaning, slamming the lockers and talking really loudly. This went on for about 45minutes and woke several people up. If you're looking for a lie in until at least 8am this place isn't for you. Unless you bring ear plugs I guess. The food from the restaurant was over-priced for what you are getting. The pictures are extremely deceiving. Portions are small, both our meals came out cold and very tasteless. To top it off, I waited for my pizza for over 40minutes and when I finally confronted a waiter it was clear he had completely forgot. 5 minutes later, an undercooked pizza arrived with no apology for the wait. It isn't the end of the world, but when you are paying their prices you do expect a certain level of food quality. It's more of a hotel with dorms than a hostel, there is no communal area other then the bar, although here you pay city prices for drinks. No pool. As a whole, it was a slightly disappointing stay at The Hump and I am not certain we will be returning. I am sure there are other hostels that are of a similar price and you will get a lot more for your money.

F***ing hostel. It's a den of thieves
I have been there for three days and I won't recommend it, since it is a very unsafe and dangerous place to stay. You will be stolen! The Hump Hostel sucks.

My worst nightmare!
I forgot my laptop along with the passport on the table in the Hump hostel restaurant. They have surveillance cameras but they said they didn't see my laptop. Damn it! Five months of vacation picture lost, along with other priceless files. To the one that has my laptop, I hope you'll burn in hell. The damage you have induce to me is irreparable.

Bad
Internet never works, bedding is never changed, rooms are never cleaned. Single rooms are ludicrously overpriced. Staff are incompetent, check your bill. Food is crap.

Superb!
I was really satisfied with everything in this hostel -- maybe they are sometimes a little slow, but that helps you to slow down.

The very fine hostel in Kunming
The hump was worth staying -- a lot of fun and it makes your holiday very relaxing without having to deal with the business side of things. the staff there were very genuine, the noise side is true but personally i'd rather deal with that than other things. quite a generous hostel i would say. plus they really know how to make cocktails plus you can drink it with a rooftop view over the city.

Great place with no complications
The Hump was an excellent place to stay. The staff were very friendly and there English was great. The prices were reasonable and they allow you to bring anything into the hostel, such as food and beer. They are willing to help you with anything you need and most important they never screw you around. Definitely recommend.
