Reviewed 18 August 2017 via mobile

As a solo traveller I think the most important thing for a hostel to have is a sense of community, and Showbiz has plenty of that. The staff are so helpful and friendly and were more than happy to answer all my questions about booking trips.

The view from the rooftop bar is amazing and you're more than likely to make a few friends up there. The location is fantastic too, right in the centre of town while still being peaceful.

My only criticism is there are no privacy curtains on the dorm beds, and the rooms are maybe a little basic but what more do you expect from a budget hostel? What it lacks in amenities it more than makes up for with character.

Lovely staff, lovely breakfast, lovely view from a rooftop. It's like being on the best holidays ever, when you can chill with friends in the bar, go to the nice tour organised by the hostel, take some food recommendations and be back to fall asleep in a comfy bed. I would like to be in Yangshuo again just to check in this hostel.

Clean, comfy bed, warm and powerful shower - what more could you want from a hostel?! Has great extras such as free laundry (have to pay for dryer), happy hour beers on the roof terrace overlooking the Li River, and able to rent motorbike, bikes, e-bikes etc from reception. They also booked our sleeper bus to Shenzhen. Really helpful staff with great English. Excellent location: 6 minute walk (with our backpacks) from the pier/ port if you are getting the river cruise from Guilin, just off West Street (but surprisingly quiet considering), and right next to the river Li. Would request a room at the front of the hostel to try and avoid some of the noise from West Street. Excellent value for money. Highly recommend.

Nice and easily affordable hostel in one of the best places of china. Marvelous views on the rooftop. The negative point could be the difficulty to come accross with it, but it is just the first time.
