Great Atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. Very friendly English speaking staff with quick and efficient service. Wifi access in entire facility. Great views of lake from rooftop. Easy walking distance around Guilin

I stayed here for 2 nights while travelling in China with my mom. The hostel is in a great location though not the most convenient to get to. Coming from the bus terminal, you can take a public bus and then walk one block, though that might be more difficult if you don't speak the language. Alternatively you can just... More

Youth hostels in China can be very bad. This one is on the top part of the scale. Very nice little rooms. Probably recently renovated. Modern (western style) toilets, nice shower, with hot water and all. Location is convenient, just by the pier. It can probably get noisy on the day time, due to the shopping street, but I couldn't...

The hostel is located just adjacent a beautiful park in Guilin along lakes and rivers. I booked a standard room for a very good price. The room was big. The comfort room was okay. But the lavatory needs more space (at least in my room 317). Improvements can be made on some seats in the reception and common area. If... More

We arrived in the evening and this was our first stop in China so we weren't too sure what to expect, the atmosphere was very quiet and hushed which was not what we experienced in other hostels around China but this place definitely had more families staying than younger backpackers. It was good that they offered western food however when... More

We chose this place based on Tripadvisor & our pretty tight budget (we've been travelling since early October now!!) We arrived to Guilin by plane and there was an efficient bus service at the airport. When you come out of arrivals it's right in front of you & only costs 30rmb (50rmb per person to Yangshuo). The location to get... More

This is a place you might consider while planning a trip to Guilin. The hostel is a friendly place in a quiet street. The common rooms are well taken care of, just as the shared bathrooms and toilets. The staff can arrange pretty much everything for you, which is nice because the area has lots to offer!

The staff at reception always helped with the internet, with instructions how to get to our next destination, with the laundry service (could hang out the clothes on the balcony outside the room), always with a smile and patience. Their English is excellent. The rooms were excellent, clean, air conditioned. The food and service at the bar was great. The... More
