“Best Place Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2011

Where do we start? Wei picked us up from the bus station and delivered us to the hostel in time for the first of several wonderful meals - included in price. The room was spacious and clean with air con. (which I badly needed). Wei was very helpful for booking our outings each day and is very interesting to talk to, in English. The location is 10 minutes walk from the main tourist area, thank goodness, because the noise there is continuous. His family were always friendly and accommodating. Also, other guests very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful stay with Wei and his family. We were made to feel like we were at home adn stayed for 5 nights when we had originally booked 3. The rooms are clean and spacious, with heater/air con. The food (that is included in the price) was amzing, some of the best we have had in China. Wei provides free cultural classes in which we learnt to play majhong and make dumplings. If you need to organise any transport Wei will do this, we got bus and train tickets through him and it was very efficient, same day service, considering the train tickets had to be purchased in another town. There is a tv room with dvds and two computers for free internet use. The guesthouse is a little out of the centre of town, but you can catch a trolley bus for only 1yuan. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle however of the main streets. Overall we had a lovely stay and were sad to leave.

The Rooms are simple but clean, dinner was spectacular (best chinese food I had during my trip, and its complimentary 3 times a day!) and Wei, the ownwer, even teached me how to play Mahjong. In fact, there are free classes in Mahjong, Caligraphy, Chinese Cooking and Tai Chi.
It is a 15 minutes walk outside the city center, but you can easily take a taxi, a golf cart taxi or tuktuk for no monney (3 minutes). And the center is really crazy, loud and busy all night long so I preferred staying a little bit more quiet. And Wei will pick you up/drop you off at the bus station or in the city center for free.
I loved my stay at the Culture House!

This place is the best place we have stayed in while traveling around China. Wei the owner just is so helpful as well as his family. the food was probably a highlight of our stay, as breakfast, lunch and dinner are included and it is the best food ever!!! stay here if you can, we wish we could have stayed longer.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 2010 following recommendaion from an Australian couple who had chosen it. We chose this hostel as the price was reasonable and it was outside he cenre of Yangshuo which can be quite noisy at night. It's about 1Km form the centre of the town but the owner will collect you from the centre of the town for free on arrival. It is also possble to get a small axi almost to the door. The hostel consists of bedrooms and a separate lounge in the owners residence. The roooms are small but comfortable and clean with a separate, but small, shower and bathroom. The surprisng bonus is the food as the rate incldes breakfast and dinner. We paid RMB160 (USD24) for 2 per night which included brakfast and dinner. The big sursurprise was the dinner which was freshly cooked Chinese food, varied and tasty- about 6 dishes followed by fresh fruit;the menu can be adjusted to suit vegetarians if required. The owner is extremely helpful in organising bicycle tours, booking flights and generally giving advice on what to do in the area. There is also free internet connection on a fairly battered PC but it works, albeit a bit slowly. About 200 metres form the hostel towards Yangshuo there are a number of excellent street stalls providing freshly cooked food and would recommend sopping off at one of these if you wanted a late night snack on the way back to the hostel as dinner is at 6.o'clock, Would recommend this hostel to nayone on a budget or indeed anyone looking to stay in a comforable reasonable and clean place in Yangshuo. Would definitely go back there again

Comments: The Yangshuo Culture House is a unique, comfortable, convenient and friendly hostel, making it a hidden gem in Yangshuo. Wei, the owner, is extremely accommodating, and he will organize everything for you, including local tours, evening performances, and even domestic and international travel. His family is just as wonderful as he is, so you really feel at home. The home-cooked food is so far the best Ive had in China!!! YUMMY! The Yangshou Culture House is a diamond in the rough. It is a unique opportunity to do a homestay with a Chinese family along with other weary travellers. Wei speaks very good English and is very helpful in local tours and booking onward travel plans. In addition to the affordable accommodations which include home cooked Chinese dishes for breakfast, you also have the chance to learn about the cooking, the language and even Chinese ink painting and characters. It is very quiet nestled right next the mountain and only a short walk into town. Dont miss this rare opportunity. It thoroughly enriched my visit to China! My wife and I had the best experience at Yangshou cultural house. We can’t speak highly enough about the owners and the assistance, the fantastic meals and allowing us to be part of their family. When my wife and I think of china we think of the Yangshuo cultural house. If youre after a home from home this is the only place to stay. A short walk from town the culture house is a taste of real china. Wei the proprietor offers classes and advice by the shed load- not to mention free food which is absolutely delicious. STAY HERE! Travel service As Below: Booking Train tickets, Flight tickets, Bus tickets, Boat tickets; Local tour in the Yangshuo area, Li-River tour, Bike tour, Caves tour. We are looking forwards to see you in the Yangshuo culture house! ... more   less
