The staff at Showbiz Inn were really friendly, very willing to help and gave great tips on what to do around Yangshuo. The rooftop bar was cheap compared to the bars around West Street, played decent music and there's a pool, darts and other games. The room was clean, a bit chilly, but I didn't spend too much time in... More

I was here last summer. Friendly staff and the owner is really nice. The rooftop bar is awesome. It has a great view. The location is very central to everything else. The rooms had plenty of space and the beds were comfortable as well.

The hostel is situated just down a little alley off of the busy "West Street". It is a great location, and West Street is a great place to be. Wonderful shops and stalls, and bars and clubs. Not to mention loads of great restaurants. The hostel is also within walking distance to the bus station, so you won't have any... More

We had to stay in Yangshuo teo extra days because a typhoon shut down all long distance transportation. When we went to rebook 11 Youth Hostel, our rooms were already taken! We chose Showbiz because it was next door, and no other reason. Showbiz is great for older travelers or people who just want some peace. The rooms are tidy,... More

The view from the rooftop bar is definitely worth the stay alone. But the rooms are also very spacious and the staff are very helpful. Laundry, however, is quite expensive and the bathrooms are quite dirty.

This place is a perfect comprise for central location without all the noise. The rooftop bar is so amazing we hardly went anywhere else during our 5 night stay. The views across the peaks and the Li River are perfect. If you wake up early enough (or stay up!) you can watch the sun rise over the peaks. Located down... More

Our room was very dirty, even after asking to have it cleaned the floor still made your feet black. We got covered in little bed bug bites throughout the night. The air conditioning barely worked and made an awful noise all night, as well as making the wall of the room vibrate. Rooftop bar has a lovely view, but has... More

We had a private double bedroom. Hostel is alright but not more than that. At night, especially on the weekend, it is really noisy. We switched rooms because the air con was really loud as well (room 401). Don't look under your beds, it's really disgusting! It also has probably the slowest Internet connection in whole Asia which was really... More

The reception area is a bit dingy and lacks character but the dorms are spotless and in really good condition. Everything in the room was ultra clean and the aircon = amazing. Really awesome to have free laundry and the rooftop has the best view of all the hostels- no obstruction whereas monkey janes/yangshuo 11 are behind showbiz. Bathroom not... More
