Welcome to Vagabond Inn, we are a friendly, unique decorated hostel run by a local Bai-ethnic young lady. We offer cheap, clean and comfortable accommodation.

Vagabond Inn offers detail guidance in exploring Dali. Running by a local, we know where's the best food of each kind, scenic that is not listed in guidebook and etc.

We got 2 chill-out spots: You could read, hang out, or surf the net along the corridor on second and 3rd floor with the view of Cangshan Mountain, or at night you could chill out on our rooftop and front porch enjoying Dali's starry night with beer, wine or tea.

Bus tickets, trips and tours could be booked through our reception.

The most important of all, We also cook exceptional yummy Chinese food, Remember to join us for lunch and dinner. And our boss knows how to mix a variety of flower teas, remember to order it!
