The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, the location was good, and the breakfasts were delicious!
Very nice staff, with excellent english language (the owners are british and do their best to give western travelers a feeling of being home) and located in a quiet area of Dali. Has a stove in the common area and a bed heating in the rooms, so no need to wear a jacket indoors as everywhere else in China. It was the best hostel during our stay in China!
We really enjoyed our stay at SleepyFish. The hostel is well situated just off one of the main roads in the old town near the east gate and is walkable distance from the bus stop if coming from Lijiang. The staff were very helpful in organising our visit to the Three Pagodas and our onward bus travel. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a lovely balcony overlooking the courtyard. Breakfast was good in the cafe, as was the food at the affiliated Blue Gecko cafe. Would stay again.
This is our third or fourth time to stay at the Sleepyfish.
We love it. The gardens are lovely, the sitting area is nice. There is a lot of outdoor seating as well; so it's quite comfortable.
The food is good, too.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time in Dali. Our stay at the Sleepy Fish included delicious food, lots of beautiful spots to sit and enjoy the grounds and friendly staff. Both evenings someone started a fire for us to keep warm during the cold weather. The Sleepy Fish was just perfect for my daughter and me.
Very good atmosphere and friendly caring staff. Good rooms at reasonable prices. Yummy breakfasts and great to have the option to eat good tasting (and healthy option) lunches and dinners there onsite. Peaceful environment. Really good to have electric blankets in winter. Thoroughly recommend Sleepyfish Lodge to anyone! We are certainly planning to stay there again when we return to Dali.
