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.

Cheap comfy good meals and service. Staff speak English well and are very obliging. The main thumbs up tho is for the beds! Bin traveling thru China for the last 3 weeks and the beds have been like sleeping on a bleeding plank of wood. Wake up in the morning dam near crippled. So good one GFH!

It is a normal hostel, nothing special. It is really cheap, central, next to the bus station (if you want to take the bus to Yangshuo you only have to walk for 5 minutes!) the room are not so clean but big. The bathroom is without the shower box so it becomes dirty in few minutes and they don't give... More

We stayed in a double, river view room, and our friend stayed in one of the 4 bed dorms. We were all more than satisfied with the standard of our rooms. There was a free washing machine and free laundry powder, plus a good sized drying room. This was really handy! We stayed for 3 nights. The staff were really,... More

This is so far one of the best hostels we've been to in China. First of all the place is right near the bus station and 10 minutes walk from the train station and the center of town (also you can take a bus which costs 1 yuan). The staff was extremly nice and welcoming. The guy in the reception... More

One of the better hostels during my first trip to China. They have almost everything that a great hostel should have - extremely helpful staff, very smiling people, nice book collection although parts of them are in spanish (odd), stylish design and very nice and solid bunk bed. However, it's an hotel-converted hostel and the bathroom is pretty shabby and... More

Probably this is the best hostel in Guilin, staffs were very friendly and very kind, spoke nice English, and very helpful. Location is also good, near the famous Twin Pagoda, and Elephant Trunk Hill and busy city street. The lobby was very nice, you can play table football, pool and mahjong. Rooms were nice, simple and comfy with large bathroom.... More

Nice, friendly environment. Very nice staff. Free water refill! Free laundry is a HUGE plus!!! Nice location. Room are not quite comfy. Also bad smell in bathroom from time to time. Dirty window with some garbage outside the window. Street is not quite isolated from room because of hole in the windows (for AC tubing's). Expensive price (140 RMB), but... More
