The hostel has a very good location and the stuff was very friendly and helpful. Furthermore, it offers free laundry and everything you need as a backpacker. Unfortunately I was a bit unlucky with the weather and pollution. Maybe it's better to visit Guilin in spring or summer.

Very nice hostel with spacious rooms. Friendly and english speaking staff. We appreciate full service we had: airport taxi, arrangement of exciting tours for reasonable price, western & chinese food, tasty breakfasts, comfortable rooms, barbecue party on New Years Eve (many thanks to Angela to change the date of the party just because of us). Only there was a bit... More

The hostel is spacious and confortable, the staff is very friendly. I was staying in a 8 bed dorm but there was no one else so I had it for my own ^^ In the common space/bar there is something I never saw before: under every table there is a a place to put some hot coals which makes for... More

This hostel ticks all the marks and then some. We had a double room but the folks we met from the dorms were equally satisfied. First of all, the staff could not have been friendlier. Betty, Angela, Tony, and Sherry (and others as well) bent over backwards to help us enjoy our time in Guilin. We were there over Christmas... More

Good atmosphere, friendly staff and nice place where to chill out. Close to the main needs but in a quiet street that seems you are miles away from everything. The room for 4 was perfect, clean and cosy. And the staff helps you in everything you need. Cool place where to go back.

Receptionists are very welcoming, accommodating and great for advice on where to go, what to do, and happy to talk with you and help with your PuTongHua. The hostel bunk-bed rooms are simple, good for a group of friends (we were 6), but can take more (around 10). Locker for bags, toilet and shower (hot water can run out), sink,... More

We had a great time at the Ming Palace! Originally booked for three nights and came back again for a further two more after some time at the rice terraces! So many little touches really make the place a joy to be in: free to use washing machine, free filtered water, bottled water for sale in reception, a nice bar... More

Stayed 2 nights here on our way back to Guilin to catch our flight. We arrived from Yangshuo by express bus (22Y) and we took a taxi to the hostel (25Y). Hotel is quite near Zhengyang Pedestrian Street and the Sun Moon Pagoda lake area. We were fortunate that our twin room was on the third floor and not higher... More

This hostel is located on a quiet street about 10 minutes walk from some of Guilin's busier areas, and in close proximity to the university. Rooms are newly renovated and very nice, the hostel is quiet and appears to appeal to a slighly older hostelling crowd, breakfast and coffee are good, staff are absolutely delightful, and around the corner is...
