Irrawaddy International Youth Hostel

Hostel in Ruili

This hostel located on a quiet, residential street in the north of town likes to fly under the radar: it's hard to find any English-language information about it. But the dorms and rooms are bright and reasonably well-kept, the bathrooms have sit-down toilets, the staff are cheerful and speak a little English and there's a pleasant communal area and garden.

It's a 15-minute walk from Nanmao Jie, or a ¥8 taxi ride.
