A great place to stay in Yangshuo, just a little hard to find. Dorms were clean and comfy, with a great AC. 2 min walk from the river, this hostel had everything a backpacker needs. Drink specials on the roof top bar are very fare, and the view is unbeatable. Staff is super friendly and even took us on a... More

Pleasant stay, family room was ok and 20 RMB continental breakfast is good value. Best tips are location and the rooftop terrace with bar (great view even from the laundry terrace... Don't miss it!) No towels provided in the room (didn't ask wether it's possible to hire them).

The beds are quite nice and they did not have elevators. The location is good as it's just few minutes walk from West Street. They only had 2 communal showers for dorms so you need to queue for bathing session. The wifi is very bad at level 5 dorms. Like the rooftop bar view, as you can see yangshuo from... More

Dorms were clean and bathrooms ok. The staff is nice and the included breakfast is basic but good. They have a superb terrace with a bar, even if we haven't try to party there (based on the pictures, parties look like fun in this place). The hostel is in the center of Yangshuo.

We stayed at Showbiz Inn during the Chinese Spring Festival. Every night was quiet except the final two nights which were booming with the sounds of fireworks rebounding off the mountains. I don't think there's a kitchen or any food in the hostel, but it has an awesome rooftop bar with cheap beer, free pool, board games, and a fantastic... More

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
