The staff is incredibly kind, proffessional and efficient. They are the Chinese that we have met with the best English. The rooms are very nice and clean. They have wifi in the common spaces and access to facebook and gmail. They organise interesting tours in Guilin. The hostel is very well communicated with the city buses. We felt at home.

Monica, Lara, Annie and all the staff were fabulous. The location is well connected, the place is clean with good facilities and a nice atmosphere. Great food, too. One of the best hostels in China for me.

The receptionists (Wada girls) were very helpful. Its location is near the center of the town. Good hostel with minimum price. Don't forget to explore the local market in the morning. It has very recommended foods.

Came here with a friend. Booked a twin room, very clean and nice room. Comfortable beds. Sadly wifi did not reach the rooms, so only available in the bar/restaurant/lobby/hangout area. Very Friendly staff, helpful in arranging trips, and very good food.

Me and my friend stayed here for a total of four nights and it was absolutely fantastic. We met some lovely people who were also travelling though this is not a wild hostel if you're expecting a party but a great atmosphere and fun vibe. The staff are so lovely and kind were so helpful with literally anything you need... More

I stayed here for one night prior to a longer stay in Yangshuo. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was very clean with a huge bed. The bathroom was one of the cleanest I came across in China. The staff were always very helpful and booked me my bus to Dhazi to see the rice terraces. I left... More

Wada is easily the best hostel I have stayed in China. Extremely comfortable beds, great food and helpful staff. Just to call it again - the Wada Girls are amazing. The hostel is a bit of a distance from the main Guilin attractions - elephant hill, pedestrian street etc . But thats exactly why I decided to stay here. Its... More

We stayed at Wada for our whole stay in Guilin and it's without doubt the best hostel we've had! The rooms are good renovated and equipped with comfortable beds and a/c. The city center is only a small bus ride away. WiFi is only in the common areas, but you can relax there with other travellers and backpackers. Actually it's... More
