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...

Frankly, this was my worst hostel experience ever. I haven't stayed in other hostels in china, but many in other countries. If this is one of the better hostels in China, I don't want to see others. That said, if I had booked a double room, which are large and beautiful, I would be over the moon. Dorms are also... More

If your staying in Guilin, this can be your home away from home. It was for me. Nice place to stay, clean, comfortable and funny staff. Great common area with lots of seating and a good bar with drinks and decent food. Love the pizzas they make. Dorms could have a bit better layout. But due to the building that... More
