We visited CHina for 3 weeks and were very happy with this hostel. The staff was very helpful, takes a lot time to explain everything to us and speaks good english. The room was really huge and nice. We were really surprised to get such a nice room for this price.

That hostel got everything to make you feel comfortable from the staff to the common area to the room to the activities! We loved it, we were sad to leave from there. We loved Guilin and around. That has definitely gave us envy to come back one day :). With lots of love. Marine and Stewart

Awesome place! staff member very helpful. Excellent location for food and market . They only take cash no ATM. Cross from the Hostel is a bar so weekend very noisy. Other then that, I will come back. Yes, they do offer tour guide for Lil River, Rice Terraces and Yangshuo.

A good youth hostel, with friendly English-language staff and good, clean rooms. The restaurant is quite good as well, with pretty good breakfast. My only slight complaint is that the location is slightly noisy.

Thank teturtia
