Walking distance to local market. Opposite the hostel, there are some street food stalls. Meals are not a problem when walk out from the hostel. The staffs can speak very good English and friendly too.

We arrived in the middle of the night to the Hostel and the doorman was kind and nice regardless his poor English. The room was great, better than we expected with A/C and private bathrooms inside the dorms. The beds are big and super comfy and the bar in the hostel has great breakfast. The staff were helpful and nice... More

We stayed in a double private en suite room for two nights in May. The room was the worst we had in China- it was not warm or enticing by any stretch of the imagination and I did not feel relaxed or comfortable in the room whatsoever. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hostel's email had some kind... More

I only spent two nights total in Wada Hostel, but that was enough to convince me to stay there if I ever returned. The rooms were fine for a hostel, but the staff and environment make it the place to stay. The people were very friendly and extremely helpful, and the common spaces in the hostel were comfortable, stylish, and... More

Nice hostel, very helpful people, good food and good location. The barbecue on Friday was also great to meet nice and open-minded people from all over the world. So far the best hostel I had in China.

stayed only one night to be fair. the rooms were comfortable enough and the girls at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. my only gripe is with the food. i had the swiss breakfast which was toast, cheese, and muesli. the muesli was just soggy oatmeal. the cheese was processed and plastic~like, still in the plastic slice wrapper....

We had a great time staying at Wada! We were in a double and picked up the YHA card for 50RMB, which has saved us a lot going round other parts of China! BBQ night is fantastic and really is all you can eat, i lost count of how much i ate! Place is spotless and staff are super friendly... More

What an amazing hostel! Great staff and the perfect place to meet other travellers. They helped me organise an overnight stay to the rice terraces with two guys I met at the hostel, plus a boat trip up the Li River. They couldn't have been friendlier! The hostel is a short bus ride from the centre but it's very straightforward... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms and excellent location. We were there on Dumpling Mondays and enjoyed making and eating the dumplings =) They allowed us to leave our baggage there for about 5 days for free so we really appreciated that!!
