The rooms were so-so, simple interiors, clean, had AC and location-wise- it was convenient. The area had a lot of shops and restaurants around it, although the pathway was hidden! It was such a lovely stay! Moreover, service was excellent. The staff were really friendly and helped us throughout the trip. THEY SPEAK ENGLISH! Great place to stay for foreigners... More

The friendliest personal in Yangshuo in my opinion, always eager to help you and do their best, the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and the AC work very good, too. The breakfast is good. Never experience problems with Showbiz. Rooftopbar is a nice place to relax, very nice view.

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

Seriously we did not want to leave!! The staff Fen, Sophie and Vivienne are awesome, friendly, helpful, speak very good English and great fun! Thank... 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

About: We stayed 3 days, 1 night in our own private double ensuite, and the other nights in a dormitory Pros: - Amazing rooftop bar / with an incredible view. Arguably the best view in Yangshuo (compared to the other hotels) ... I really didn't see any others that could compete. - Rooms are clean, and spacious. - Free Washing... 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
