Having arrived in Nanning after 10pm I found my way to this hostel only to discover that they have moved a fair way away and have neglected to amend their details on Trip Advisor. Received very little help (but a lot of attitude) upon getting in touch with someone and ended up walking up the road to the Green Forest... More

A good hostel for those passing through. The room was nice and warm from the aircon heater which was great as its getting cold here now. Most hostels can normally book things for you but this one can not. If you need to book any trains you must go to the station yourself. We found it easier than it sounded.... More

After backpacking for about three months, I grew to appreciate good showers. And here the showers were absolutely awesome! Ultra modern and clean, it was a revelation to have something like this in a hostel. After this they couldn't do anything wrong in my book. This was my first stay in China after arriving from Vietnam, and obviously everything was... More

Arrived here for 3 nights whilst waiting for our Vietnam Visa to be processed, which the hostel did flawlessly. When we arrived, the staff couldn't find our booking. Fortunately they had a double room left. The room was adequate for what we needed, a bed basically. Found a cockroach in the room the first night, but nothing serious. If you... More

I think this is pretty much the only place to stay if you want to stop overnight somewhere to freshen up before heading across the border into Vietnam. It’s only 2 stops on the bus from the main bus station from where the buses to Vietnam also depart. It’s dead easy to find as there’s not much else in this... More

Hostel is about a 15 minute walk from the station. I would suggest booking in advance as it was really difficult explaining we needed a room! Very limited English soken. The beds have really thin mattresses so it like sleping on the floor. Air con barely worked was so hot! Wifi works in the rooms. Bathrooms were not clean.

Our train to Nanning was late. Missing our connecting train out of the city, we were forced to stay the night and catch the once daily train south the following day. We hadn't booked anywhere but thought we would find a hotel easily enough. This was not the case. Of the half dozen hotels we walked into, none of them... More

I was one of the first guests of that hostel and I still have great memories about my stay there. Family-liked atmosphere, chiq bathroom, washing machine and the staff who helped me a lot by applying for my Vietnamese Visa.

I stayed at this place for 2 nights. The rooms were large enough to house our backpacks and had plenty of plugs. The showers and toilets are downstairs but they are very clean and new looking. The staff are really helpful and told us some things to do in the area that turned out to be awesome! There is a... More
