Description de l’établissement

OCTOBER INN has established itself as one of the most popular hostels in Lijiang since its opening three years ago. You will not find more of an international hostel in China! October Inn is popular with tourists from all over the world and so it creates a perfect environment to meet others and experience a real cultural exchange.

The staff speak English and can assist in booking tickets for excursions, finding your way around the tourist hotspots and in the evenings, cook up delicious local cuisine that rivals any restaurant in town.

Our location is perfect offering a relaxed atmosphere away from the crowded tourist areas, situated at the top of the hill in the old part of town. But don’t worry; we are a 15 minute walk away from the popular Lijiang Old town. In the opposite direction, enjoy stunning views of Lijiang from the peak of Elephant Hill, a 20 minute ascension that will also give you a magnificent view of Jade Snow Mountain, one of the many excursions we can help you book. Descend directly into Black Dragon Pool (for free!) and explore the beautiful nature of this area that is home to many pagodas and temples.

An adventure that shouldn’t be missed is the trip to Tiger Leaping Gorge. One of the amazing hiking destinations that China has to offer, this expedition can be done as a full two day experience, or, if short on time, a one day trip can be arranged. Here at October inn we can book the bus ticket for you that will take you to Qiaotou village where you will start your hike. We can take you on the 10 minute walk to the bus stop to ensure you get on the right bus so there’s nothing to worry about. If you are returning to Lijiang following your hike you can leave your luggage at the hostel in our safe hands. If continuing onto Shangri-La, the bus can take your luggage to the end of the hike and you can continue your travels from there.

Free information is also available on organizing trips to the beautiful, quiet old towns of Shuhe and Baisha. You can choose to bus, bike or trek to both of these locations but for the scenic route we recommend you rent bicycles. Again, we at October Inn can help with the arrangements.

We welcome you to October Inn and look forward to your stay here with us in Lijiang.

    Tom, the owner, is awesome! He can book everything for you and his tips are very useful. He also bring me to a local temple during a special boudhist day, so I'll have a real temple experience. We went to the market to buy fishes and release them to the nature, and had a wonderfull meal with the old ladies from a local minority who live nearby! I really enjoy it! I definetly recommand this hostel!

    The owner is very kind and helpful. We stay three days with my cousin and her daughter and we were very well welcoming. The emplacement is great because you are outside of the crowded city of lijiand. You can do hiking, the owner show you the way and maid very completed maps with pictures. I recommand it ! :)

    Difficile à trouver, différent des auberges de jeunesse habituelle mais pas désagréable. Par exemple les chambres doubles ne ferment pas à clés... Car sous la surveillance du propriétaire (très serviable qui donne beaucoup de renseignements)

    L'auberge est propre et sympa, assez proche de la vieille ville, mais la montée est un peu rude pour s'y rendre. Le propriétaire offre son aide pour planifier son séjour, mais son omniprésence peut peser lourd sur l'ambiance. C'est davantage une chambre d'hôte qu'une auberge. La famille vit sur place et occupe l'espace la majorité du temps. Le propriétaire vous gueulera des consignes sans cesse sur l'utilisation de l'électricité, de la machine à laver ou simplement de l'escalier extérieur.

    L auberge est à 10 min à pied de la vieille ville. L endroit à un charme féérique lol. Le rooftop offre une vue magnifique sur les alentour. La petite marche offre une vue magnifique sur la montagne enneigé. Par contre le propriétaire n est pas très avenant. Il un peu prétentieux. Dommage
