Had a great time in the hostel, everything is pretty much perfect. Shared dorms are fine but could be a tid bit nicer. They are still great anyways. Love the common area and the staff are great. Good English and always friendly. This is my second stay here and will be back when in Guilin!

Nice little place, Rooms were clean and comfortable enough, Down stairs restaurent/bar area is nice to sit down for a relaxing time. Friendly girls at the front desk & above all spoke English, which was very rare in China. Wifi signal needs to be amplified as it does not reach 4th floor (where we were) Overall a nice place and...

Me and my family loved our stay in this hostel in Guilin. Though we were staying only for one night before taking the cruise down to Yangshuo, we had a great time in their bar, we benefited from the advice from the very friendly staff and we appreciated their laundry service! Great place, totally recommend it.

I flew in late and had a bad experience with my taxi driver. Everything from there went splendidly because I was greeted by Angela who immediately made me feel at home. From there on out the staff was extremely helpful with everything from planning tours to recommending a cheap noodle shop.

This hostel is great. The staff are always ready and willing to help. The food is good. The rooms are clean, and have lovely air-conditioning. The dorms have their own bathrooms, and the location is top-notch. Prices are more than affordable, and the your free pot of tea will provide a relaxing break.

Our room was impeccable and very spacious. Clean and fresh, late check in and check out went smoothly. The breakfast was good (though took some time)! They were very helpful. Be careful with the noise, there was noise at night (construction). We recommend this place!
