35RMB. Perfect for a backpack trip. Service is ok. I saw some bugs in the showers and toilets (a simple hole) ... It's ok if you are just looking for a cheap night. The location is cool, because you're just in front of the rail/bus station to go to Longji or anything else.

Only recommended to those who want to catch trains and bus within distance. The dorms is quite small for 4 pax people and damp. They did not provide lockers. the wifi in the rooms also very poor. While the stairs looked dirty and dark. The bathrooms looks crappy and not well cleaned.The lounge area is spacious. They did not have... More

The only good thing about this hostel was that it was close to the train station (which is not that good if you are planning to stay in Guilin for some days). Otherwise they don't offer food or wifi in the rooms (as said online); the hallway/stairs looked dirty and smelled like bathroom. Our private room had smell coming from... More

This place is one of the worst hostel I never saw. I just went here for one night, we arrived very late cause our flight and just sleep. The hostel is very difficult to find, locate like a Garage very close to Guilin Station. The reception is a disaster with plenty of rubbish and dirty staff around. The room is... More

Room was a bit crappy- bit run down, crap shower and squat toilet but clean enough and great communal space. Excellent location (just a few minutes walk to the train station) and the food was really good too and they made us food to take on the train. Nice staff.

So many good memories of our 4 day trip to Guilin. It's not fancy, but the staff is very pleasant and always willing to help us plan our trip and our visits organized by agencies or by ourselves ... Beautiful place!

First of all,it's really a cheap chain-hostel.However,the room live up to the price.Hostel is in the corner of a backstreet,so it's not easy to find out the first time. There are many rice-noodle shops scattered around the hostel.Local snacks and meals are offered in different shops as well. As the hostel is not far from Guilin Train Station,travelers coming to...

Stayed here for one night in one of the dorms. We had to move twice because the aircon was blowing hot air, and we ended up in the smallest of the 4-bed dorms. It was quite ok, but very cramped and almost no room for luggage. The room was clean, but the bed sheets were very old and had old... More

This hostel was the worst of all the hostels in all eight cities we visited during our trip to China in December 2011. First, the hostel name on the building doesn’t match the name online. We weren’t sure if it was even the correct one because there are two similar hostels names in Guilin when we booked online. The hostel... More

We were there 3 nights and each of them in a different room. They told us they had a double room but afterall was a mistake and we had to change everyday. Anywise it's clean and the common area it's really nice. The breakfast is delicious and it's quite cheap! Internet is very, very, very slow. In fact think that... More
