Me and my friends stayed in Guilin for a night before going to Yanshuo and this place was a great choice. The staff was super friendly and helpful. In addition the hostel is in a very good location in Guilin.

our two night stay was wonderful, we were in a twin room with bathroom, clean very tidy and great value. Staff were welcoming and friendly and speak brilliant English. We were happy with location and all services offered here from food, tours and advice. Would highly recommend this hostel for your stay in Guilin.

During my trip around China, this was the first time I stayed at a hostel that made me feel like home! Angela, Jelly and Tina (the hostel staff) invited me to have a local dinner when I arrived and the next day we climbed a mountain where I saw how beautiful is Guilin from the top! Betty (the bar attendant)... More

The friendliest staff I've met in China! They really go out of their way to help you. Our room was quite small, but clean and modoern. The location is really good, only 5 minutes walk from the main pedestrian street and close to sights. Nice lounge with good food too. I would highly reccomend this hostel to anyone staying in...

The staff are so friendly! I had a small medical problem, and they took me to the hospital and translated for me. It took almost an hour but they didn't mind at all. The rooms are fine, a bit old but totally OK. Cosy bar with decent food. Hostel is within walking distance of all major sights. Definitely recommend this... More

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.

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

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
