Bright public washing room with 5 bathrooms & 5 toilets & a shared washing up place. With the semi-transparent ceiling, which brings warmth and brightness in the day time, it is an extraordinary relaxing cool place. (You can even see through the stars from the ceiling during the night) The whole bathroom was a wood construction. (so back to nature, huh?)

I only stayed here one night. The location is ideal as it is on the edge of the 'old town' and you can easily access the bus station. I do think that you can get better hostels at the same price just down the road from Dragoncloud.
I didn't eat here, but wouldn't attempt it because the kitchen is open and dirty (don't mean to be negative, just being honest).
I liked the rooms as there are no bunks I was warm as the duvets are thick. I got a bit of allergies from the dust, but it is mountain area so to be expected.
The bathroom is spacious, but smelled like urine when I stayed there - something you get used to in China, but not really acceptable if I am reviewing on cleanliness.
Fine if you staying for a short visit, but look a bit further if you planning on staying longer!
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
We had a terrific stay here, were supposed to stay 5 days, and then stayed 12!! The staff were so welcoming and looked after us (well our kids) brilliantly. We stayed in 2 double rooms with ensuites, and although the shower was sporadic - occasionally warm, occasionally no pressure, etc, it was a great place overall.
The animals (2 dogs and a rabbit) were friendly and clean; the courtyard was safe for playing in and although there are no cooking or catering facilities there are loads of Western, Chinese and Tibetan cafes / restaurants just around the corner.
