Good hostel in a great location near Pedestrian Street, fantastic restaurants and food stalls, and the river. Staff are extremely helpful and professional. Rooms need a bit of renovating and the hallways can be loud. Good value for the money, as others have said. Seems to appeal to a younger backpacking set.

This is a great place, very central location, with tempting snack street just on the opposite side of the road. Sweet staff that speaks excellent english, free laundry, finally internet with fb access, comfy lounge with positive vibes. This hostel is simply great value for the money.

We were only suppose to go through Guilin, leave our bags here and continue without sleeping here. The ''Guilin backstreet youth hostel'' offered us to leave our bags here (free of charge), helped us to order a bus to Dazhai and even let us have a shower here. When we came we also had the best fried noodles in china!

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. the stuff speaks english very well. The room was good enough, but i think the location of this hostel is the most important case. It is just about 200m far from main Guillin square and app 50m from food market (well let say from entrance to hidden food market).

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
