Cozy rooms, amazing staff. They speak great English and are very helpful for getting around the city. The common room had good WiFi and a nice bar. There's no heat in the common room, but there are warming stoves and lots of blankets. Was cozy in February. Nicest hostel I've ever stayed in

China is a place completely different from the West in many aspects. Especially the language is often a problem when finding directions (e.g. for activities or a good restaurant). It is therefore very convenient, if not necessary, for Westerners traveling in China that they stay at ho(s)tels that provide enough information to make their trip successful. When me and my...

PERFECT stay, super friendly staff that just want you to have a good stay. Access to Google and Facebook through a specific wifi network. Normal-sized double rooms with a safe inside the room, good location, super cozy "living room" with bar service, BELGIAN beer (Duvel), blankets and couches in a large hang-out area that has a small area for watching...

We stayed here over christmas and had a really great time. The hostel was clean, beds were comfortable and the wada girls are super helpful and nice. Their food is fantastic and so is the common area. Unfortunately there was no wifi in the rooms but they offered wifi with vpn in the common area which is great.

Two friends and I stayed at Wada for 2 nights in December. We were all over the moon with the hostel. The rooms are perfect - each bed has a curtain which adds a bit of privacy, we each had 2 lockers (1 big and 1 small, both with keys), so I felt that my belongings were safe, there were... More

This is a good backpacker hostel in Guilin. The price is definitely inexpensive and the atmosphere in the lobby area / garden is great: it's always filled with backpackers hanging out. Like most hostels in China, they serve food and drinks. The food is okay, kind of mediocre. However, it's nice to enjoy a breakfast outdoors in the bamboo garden.... More

This is definitely a backpacker hostel (I got a private room) that is low cost, with a decent menu, great bar, and friendly staff. I found my room to be clean, the amenities to be nice, and was overall very impressed. I think if I had one complaint, it's that it's in a somewhat quiet neighborhood. (I think the advantage...

I really struggle to think of any criticisms about Wada hostel, it is still the best hostel I have stayed in up to now. Only a 10 minute walk from the main train station (following fantastic directions on our confirmation email), we found Wada hostel which seemed a little scruffy on the outside and we were not sure what to...
