Big rooms with big bathrooms, scorching hot water and very helpful english speaking staff. Only a couple of minutes walk from one of the entrances to dali old town. Also including a western and chinese style restarunt and a bar in the common area.

I stayed at the Jade Emu for a total of THREE months (all caps because that's much longer than your usual traveler) and I've got to say, Dave & Song have a great thing going at this place. The staff is friendly & respectful, I was never given an attitude once, even on days when I bothered about new towels...

I can recommend this guesthouse for backpackers and families who visit Dali area. The front desk staff speaks English and can help with a lot of service. Rooms are clean. Coffee and other drinks in the inhouse lounge area are resonably priced, food quality is 3/5, i therefore recommend eating outside.

I would give this place a higher rating if the staff were a bit more helpful and the menu was a fair price. The place its self however is very clean and relaxing, if you aren't trying to organize anything I'd probably even recommend it.

We enjoyed the public area with the restaurant, games, it was also an opportunity to meet with other travelers. The stuff was helpful, but not all of them spoke English. They helped us arrange...

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel and enjoyed every moment of it. The prices are super reasonable, even for higher luxury rooms type. The dorms are super cheap and comfortable. The location of the guesthouse is 2 minute walking from the old city of Dali, which allows you to walk at night for a beer or dinner without...

We had read a lot of great reviews about this hostel and were a little disappointed. It was large and sprawling and lacked atmosphere and character. Staff were overall nice and friendly. There was no inside space so in February it was very cold. Dorms were clean and spacious, with electric blankets. Close to old city but you had to...

Perfect located, just out of the busy centre of Dali ancient city. When you cross the highway 241 is very easy to find. Follow the signs. Hostel is clean and has very nice beds. Nice bathroom with brand new shower. We booked the expensive, deluxe room. This was well valued for your money. The last night we had a cheaper...
