I would not move straight over the street to Sheraton, even if it was for free. Backstreet is actually the most friendly and helpful place i have been to. It was my home for 10 days and i did not want to leave at all. Comfortable rooms to a good price, excellent dumplings, tea and fruit drinks. Service level is... More

The staff is very helpful and most of time speaks English pretty good. I've booked there twice and experienced both dorm room and a private one, and both of... More

We spent several nights here in December. The staff are helpful and friendly. It is not an upmarket place but very comfortable and homely. It's in a fantastic location right near the shops and the river.

I spent 3 days at this hostel in March 2014 and it was great. I stayed In a 6 bed dorm and the beds are huge in comparison to other hostels I have stayed in. Each bed has a heated blanket which is always a bonus! It was only 30rmb a night and the staff are happy to help you... More

I stayed here with some friends in January 2014. Temperature in the rooms: 5 degrees. A/C barely working. We had to sleep with the electric blankets turned on all night. Nit a lot of choices for breakfast/ other food. This hostel was recommended by its counterpart in Xian. They don't even compare. I'd give this one 2.5 overall.

Pros: Good location, just near to everything important in Guilin. Nice size room. Great lobby, Kind staff that knows english well. Free computers in the lobby. Cons: The room was not clean. We got the 4th floor (no elevator) and didn't have Wi-fi there. Very noisy at night - because it is right near to the night clubs and bars.... More

Good option if you want to stay in a good location and in a place that mingles chinese vibe (our room furniture) with english speaking service. Guilin is nice for a evening walk around the lakes. I suggest you do the li river cruise with bamboo raft from yangshuo rather than the expensive and crowded big boat.

I thought it was a nice but average Backpacker's hostel. I like to be away from crowds so I didn't stay there that long, though it's right next to the lakes and so you could take long walks and watch the boats go by. There is free Internet access in the lobby which was great and the place was quite... More

We got an airport pick up organised by the hostel which was great as the airport is a good bit away from the main centre. Hostel is centrally located. Staff not overly welcome but are happy to answer any questions. Nice lounge area that serves good food and beer too. There is free wifi access but only from the lounge.... More

Slept here one night. Room was quite big, but the airconditioning did not seem to work appropriately. The door to the bathroom was half broken. Also there was no proper city map available, one of the baiscs. This was much less as comparable hotels we stayed in. We tried to arrange the boat trip to yangshuo through the hostel. At... More
