Very knowledge owner - Peter who spent time with me going through my travel plans and guiding me on how to get to Tiger Leaping Gorge ( a place which I left out in my initial plan but upon his advice, went over for a day hike while route to Shangri-la and &"wow! &"- the place was simply awesome! )

One of the extremely best hostels we have ever been at. Peter, the owner is extremely nice and helpful, speaks extremely great English (he is originally from Holland). It was a extremely great experience also simply because of him. Peter helped us to plan day trips and helped us with anything we need. The location of the hostel is great, far better to stay in Shuhe old town instead of Lijiang. Much far more authentic and yet nonetheless comfortable for the tourist and day trips. The hostel also has an excellent vegetarian restaurant.

Great location in Shu He (away from the HUGE crowds in Lijiang Old Town). Fantastic atmosphere, beautiful, clean rooms. You can pay 25 yuan to join in a public vegetarian dinner (or lunch, but we didn&'t have this) along with the food is AMAZING! Definitely recommended. The owner, Peter was incredibly helpful with anything you need, especially with regard to travel, both in Lijiang and wherever you are heading to next.

There was a very peaceful environment about this place. You couldn&'t help but relax when you were here. There&'s also a strong connection to other local businesses which made you really feel portion of the community, rather than just a guest.

Everything here is perfect. Peter is a lot more than helpful, the food is scrumptious, the rooms are gorgeous, so clean and also the location is completely situated in Shuhe - far enough from the crowds for to take in the atmosphere, culture and ambience around you.

Friendly staff, reception staff have a very good command of English. The vegetarian food is outstanding && made on the premises. The whole ambience of the guesthouse is pleasant.

  Customer Review 

We only stayed for a night but liked how zen and peaceful it was at Nomads. Loved the ambiance and atmosphere inside the courtyard and cafe area. We liked the fact that it was situated out of the noisy area but close enough (2min walk) to the stretch with plenty of eating places and bars. It is a small but nicely furnished Tibetan-themed guesthouse. Staff: The owner, Peter and his employees were super helpful in terms of providing advice on how to minimise cost and maximise the amount of time we had in Lijiang and helping us find our way to the Jade Dragon Snow mountain with handdrawn maps on the directions :) Food: We also really much enjoyed the vegetarian food served in Nomads cafe and their vegetarian buffet was pretty awesome and not at all greasy like food in many Chinese restaurants. One of their employees made an superb recommendation for us to go to nearby Snowflower Restaurant for local Naxi food. Location: The guesthouse is situated 50m from the mini vans parking lot where you could get to overrated Lijiang (Dayan) old town for a 5rmb/pax and 2rmb/pax to the new town. A suggestion would be to include the name of the LikeLong busstop where the minivans were situated inside the directions as we missed the busstop and ended up taking Bus 11 all of the way to the junction outside Shuhe. Rooms: Clean and basic but nicely furnished rooms equipped with electric blankets and basic amenities like soap and shampoo which was really much appreciated. We will definitely be back when we head to TLG next time and will also highly suggest anyone to stay with Nomads!

Very noiseless and peaceful. Peter is warm and friendly and great to ask for advice.
