We looked up this beautiful hostel and were excited to visit and see Guilin. Unfortunately 30 min after booking we realized we found out that there no train tickets- literally everything was booked out the whole weekend. So we wrote an mail to the staff explaining our situation and they answered immediately being super understanding and canceled our booking for... More

Situated in the city centre this hostel offers you all you need. The staff is nice, the rooms are super clean and modern, the breakfast is very very good and the price is super convenient! The hostel organizes also some trips close to Guilin...I went to the rice terraces with them that are breathless! Higly recommended!

The situation of the hostel is phenomenal. It is in the center, next to the lake and very close to the night food market. The lounge and the rooms are super clean and very modern. The staff is really friendly and give good tips. It is the best hostel I've stayed in my one month trip around China. I rate... More

I stayed here in the dorms with a friend at the beginning of August - the room was fantastic and clean, the bunks were very spacious and there was lots of storage space for our baggage. We stayed for three days (four nights) and during this time took advantage of the tours organised by the hostel. The girls at reception... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel and I consider myself extremely lucky to have found this one. Everything is excellent: beds are very comfortable, curtains for privacy, lamps and outlets on each bed and individual lockers. The bathroom is divided into 3 spaces: sink, toilet and shower, all very clean. The food is indeed homemade as advertised.... More

Don't think there is common kitchen. Wifi in the lobby had connection to fb etc. Staff are very helpful too, had... More

Backpacked for a while in China and I was surprised by how great this hostel is. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm and I have no complaints about anything in it. The food is actually pretty good, Internet works great and the staff is awesome!!! Highly recommend the li river and rice paddies tours. Cheers

We stayed in Guilin late June and chose this place due to it's fantastic reviews, and we were not disappointed. After travelling through China, especially is the middle of Summer, it was a relief to find something so clean, comfortable and convenient. We stayed in a double private room with a private bathroom, and it was better than any of... More
