For as cheap as 35 RMB a night, we found a nice room, with really large beds and clean overall. Only our bathroom was a little dirty: the drain was filled with hair and the shower water was not going through as it should. The common area is great and they have a bar/restaurant in there which is really convenient,... More

Staff were very helpful 10 min walk from main streets, close to bus and train station. Only issue with location is that it's very noisy outside late until around 1am, and starting again around 7am. Hostel has a nice atmosphere, overlooking the Li River. Cleanliness was about average for a hostel.

We stayed in a double room with ensuite for 2 nights. The shower is all moldy and the toilet doesn't flush-just runs. The room is old and could do with a coat of paint. There was no room tidy or change of towels just empty of bin. We want on the one day tour to Longji rice terraces with the... More

When we entered the room at the green forest hostel we couldn't believe what we saw: a huge, clean ensuite room. What was the price we paid again? Wow. This place definitely is affordable and offers a great location and friendly staff. For us, travelling by train, it was located conveniently close to the train and bus station. If you... More

This hostel is in a good location, near to the train and bus station and close to the night market. The reception staff speak good English and were helpful. We booked two tours through Green Forest (the rice terraces and the bamboo boat to Yangshuo) and they were both great! The rooms are quite small but they are clean. The... More

The staff speaks a really good english and is always ready to help. They welcomed us at 1 a.m. with the smile. Comfortable room with view on the river. Ideally located between the center and the train/bus station.
