The vibe of this hostel is super cozy. My friend and I decided to visit Guilin from the 8th of January 2016 till the 11th. We had no concrete plans for this trip and the staff at the hostel was really helpful and friendly. If you do not have a lot of time in Guilin and you dont want to... More

My sister and I stayed here in August 2012. We really liked our stay, it was clean, really cheap (even for South Africans), friendly staff, good food, also there were two kittens to keep us company (we like the local pet friendliness of the place…I do not know if the cats are still there?). My only regret was not to... More

I have stayed at Ming Palace for 1 night on 2 Nov 2015 (on our way to Yangshuo), and 1 night at Sky Palace on 8 Nov 2015 (on our way back to Malaysia). Both are under the same boss, same management. The rooms were very clean, modern and beautiful. The decorations were nice too. It basically looks more like... More

Guilin is really just a stop over spot to get to other surrounding areas like Longsheng and Yangshuo. There really is nothing spectacular here. That being said this is a fine stop over hostel. Rooms are clean and affordable. The location is along the river and about a 50 minute walk from the bus station to the rice terraces.

I've stayed in 3 hostels in Guilin, this is the one with hostel style most. The location is near the Ming Palace, and also not far away from the river. And the hostel is quiet. Room is not big but clean. But the TV in my room is not good, all channels in green color. Others are all fine. It's... More

I went for 3 nights with 2 more friends and we do not have any complaints about this hostel. Location was perfect, near landmarks and nightlife areas. The room was clean and big enough. The service was friendly and effective. I truly recommend this hotel!!

The room was really nice, big with a telly and a huge bed and window.... More

Great staff that helped me plan my trips and gave great advice. The hostel has tour options (sadly wasn't able to take them because of the rain), but still good! Pretty good location about ten minute walk from the pedestrian street and easy access to the bus system. Maybe 30 minutes walk to the pagodas (not far). Right by the... More
