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!

Good location close to the center. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and were willing to provide info. Wide, tasty, range of both western and local food. The dorms are large with lockers and keys provided, also large bathroom. The rooftop area also has a beautiful view. My only complaint would be that the room was really hot like a... More

Thanks for the appreciation of our hostel, also glad you have a good memery here. For the "sauna", I think you should blame the hot weather because we install the aircondition and fans in every room. We don't like the hot summer either. you are welcome to come back in a cool season . More

Stayed at 5 hostels so far in China, one of which was also in Guilin, this is by far the best. Shocked when we walked in and saw the very large room and luxury bathroom, no squat Toilet and the loo separate from the shower, thought we'd waked in too a decent hotel! Staff all very helpful and the atmosphere... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Extremely comfortable room, amazingly friendly staff and great food. Laundry facility was a great plus too. Minor inconveniences were that the WiFi didn't reach the room (but the 3th floor terrace and downstairs common room were within range and very cosy too) and also that (like anywhere in China) smoking is allowed...
