    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

    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

    Official Description (provided by the hotel)
    Here we have excellent facilities and warming staff. You may find it amazing that such a quiet and lovely place should exist in Guilin downtown. Roaming around the lake bank, you would meet cute statues of piggy and goose along the path, there are the local opera stage set on the river, squares full of dancing ladies in happiness. ... more   less
