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

Nice hostel in a good location. The staff also organises trips for you if you book them one day in advance. They offer quite good western breakfast for 20 rmb. My single room was clean and cute decorated. Especially the bathroom was very nice. The only thing to complain about is the smell and that in front of my window... More

This is a great place to stay in a surprisingly attractive town. The lakes and hills are just in front of this attractive building and walk ing around this area is a joy. The hostel has everything you need and some English speaking staff who'll write out in Chinese notes for cab crivers etc. The breakfast is disappointing don't bother.... More

Overall a very fine place to stay, however, only half of the staff were decent in English, the others didn't understand at all which was a bit annoying when there were many people at the reception desk, because each customer takes a long time to service. Also, when we went hiking in the rice terraces, we had specifically asked for... More

it was a short walk away from the main restaurant and shopping area of Guilin, but the hostel itself, the service and the rooms were so-so. There was a strong mouldy smell in all the hotel and the rooms, it is a humid area, but if the hotel had central AC there would be no mould. We checked in and... More

The private room we had was refurbished so very clean and comfortable (good bed!). Location is good but a taxi is needed from the bus station. This is only 10 rmb so don't get suckered into paying 30 rmb! The hostel is good value for money and would definitely book again. Most of the staff were excellent and very helpful... More

We loved our visit here, it's well situated right opposite the rhong lake and round the corner from the sun and moon pagodas (walking distance, round the lakes). The tourist Office is just around the corner - go out of the hostel turn left and left again when you get to the lake then keep going straight and it's on... More

I liked this place because everything was simple, you pick your drink in the fridge and pay to the reception, you sit anywhere in the lobby and order a pizza ( just so so but cheap). The room are clean, the view is nice, the location is good. It is not really a family friendly hotel ( the family room... More

We stayed here for a one night stopover. The price you pay is amazing, the hostel is very clean. The rooms are very basic, but have everything you need. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is good. The location is in a quiet side street and a nice walk along the river to the restaurants and bars. We would... More
