We stayed there twice before and after going to Yangshuo, and we were very satisfied both times. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the hostel has very nice public areas. The food was fantastic for a hostel, very good breakfast and one of the few places in china that makes good bacon! They also make delicious smoothies and milkshakes.... More

My husband and I were booked for three nights but made a mistake buying train tickets on day two and had to leave after only two nights. We told them about 4pm on night two and they refunded us for night 3. That was very nice! Clean, wifi, comfy, good location. It is behind the Sheraton if you are coming... More

I stayed 5 nights in single room, which was clean and shower with hot water all the time. The common area downstairs is nice, good wifi, very helpful and english speaking staff. Pancake and fruit breakfast are good.

The hostel is a stones throw away from the food market area. they have a bar on street level and seating outside, the bar is very well priced and food is also cheap and tasty. The rooms are clean and spacious with en suite.... More

The rooms are good value for money. They are not perfect but it is not expensive, rooms are adequately clean and towels are changed each day. The staff was very helpful and always willing to assist with anything we needed. They even offered their bottle of insect spray after we arrived for check in full of insect bites and the... More

Location right in the middle of town. Rooms were basic, although comfortable, no lockers though. Staff were fantastic, informative and friendly. I left my iPod there, and they sent it all the way to England for me!

The staff is very friendly and helpul. Rooms are big, clean and confortable. The hostel is close to the shops but, thus, far from the train station. The common area on the ground floor is very cosy and it is easy to meet people there. Breakfast was very good as well (although not included).

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
