Just to be clear, we didn't stay here but ate here several times and came to them for advice and I wanted to write them a review on that experience. We actually stayed at a hotel in the botanical gardens and came across this hostel when trying to find it. The staff were the warmest we'd found compared to other... More

We loved the hostel for its friendly staff. The "Wada Girls" seemed sincerely happy to see us. On our first night there while my husband was playing one of the provided guitars, one of the Wada Girls brought over an older Chinese man with his erhu, a Chinese string instrument, and a teaching lesson resulted that was fun for everyone....

Monica and the other Wada girls are amazing. They helped us with our reservations to the Li river cruise and oriented us on how to go to elephant trunk and other attractions downtown Guilin. I personally would have choose a more close to downtown hotel but the service and helpfulness of the staff is what we appreciated the most. We... More

We stayed here two nights in October as part of a medical emergency accident that happened while we were in Yangshuo. The sister hostel in Yangshuo set us up with a dorm room in Wada Guilin due to the fact we needed ground floor access very late at night. Monika, a staff member at Guilin Wada met us at the... More

We spend two nights in wada hostel in Guilin and it was a great experience overall. The staff (Wada girls) are very helpful and friendly. Also the free dumplings night was funny and we learned how to cook a Chinese dumpling.

I absolutely loved my stay at Wada in Guilin. I was only there for one night, but I wish I had stayed longer. The atmosphere in the common area is perfect for a hostel, breakfast is delicious, and it's comfortable. I really highly recommend it. I liked it enough that I ended up staying at the Wada in Yangshuo because... More

As i've come to find with hostels in China, the the staff are what make these places as they generally tend to be helpful, cheerful and always willing to chat day or night. The location of the hostel is far out of the central area of Guilin however, about a 30 min walk through some very busy and dangerous roads.... More

Got quite a lot of plus points to this place. location - close to the bus and train station, easy to get to as a no 10 bus goes across the road from it. food - like every hostel we've been in, it's a touch more expensive than the local cafe's but it's very good. if you can, do the... More
