Without question Jane’s is in a state of benign neglect. When we were there we only ever met topless men with cigarettes constantly alight. The bathroom door was broken and the floor was so dirty it blackened our feet. Don’t think about staying here if you’re looking for a good hostel. However if you’re here to walk the high road, it is a decent place to rest your eyes if you have to. If you really have time, think about commencing your walk and staying somewhere an hour or two into the walk.

I could have stayed here all week just to eat the food that Jane cooks! WONDERFUL! Very friendly and a great location to stay before beginning the first big part of your hike into Tiger Leaping Gorge! I only took one star off because the rooms were pretty smokey. Jane will also store your bags for you while you hike for just a few dollars. We did NOT notice and rats or mice during our stay.

Jane is only interested in her phone. No smile, not a nice welcome at all. You have to shout to get someone's attention as everybody is busy lazing about and they don't seem to like the distraction of guests. Then the room. For 120 kuai you can find spotless and large rooms in a business hotel in most small towns in China. Here you get a ratty carpet and old frayed towels. The bathroom is old but clean. Then I start feeling these little pricks on my ankles... There are fleas!! It is too late to leave but I have cancelled my second night. It must have been a lovely place once but as it is now I would avoid it and go to the newer place about 500m down the road, just past the turn-off to the trail. Horrible experience, and I haven't even gone to bed yet. Fingers crossed for no rodents tonight :-(

Me and my friend decided to stay at Janes despite reading the reviews on here! The rats are no exageration, there are loads of them and you can hear them all night above the ceiling and there were rat droppings on my pillow (I changed beds!) However, it's a good place to start the hike to Tiger leaping gorge and (Jane) did warm up to us and smile occasionaly! The food is good and it's great you can store your luggage for as long as needed.

This was a good location to start our hike because it was right at the beginning of the trail and we didn't arrive in Qiantou until the evening. We were hiking through and moving on to Haba Village so we took our bags with us but you can leave bags there for free if you want. They also arrange buses to various locations like Shangrila, Lijiang and Dali. We ordered our breakfast the night before so it was ready at 7am and we could get started on our hike right away, so in that sense, the service was good and Jane was nice enough. However, with a ~15 mile hike ahead of us, all we really wanted was a good night's sleep and we did NOT get that at Jane's. The dorm rooms were filthy, the beds we're very uncomfortable and I barely slept more than 2 hours because there was a family of mice or rats living in the ceiling above us. Their squeaking and scratching and running around was incredibly loud and right above my bed. The other two people in the room were up all night as well, one said that headphones didn't even help. Maybe because it was off-season, Jane hadn't taken care of the problem yet, but I still had an awful experience due to my lack of sleep.
