This was my first stop in china coming from Hanoi. You don't come across good common areas in hostels but this one is very nice and spacious with a free pool table. The rooms are clean with plenty of space, they also have airco and a proper bathroom. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's located among some busy... More

Perfect place if this is your first stop from Hanoi, Vietnam into China. Everyone speaks good English and is able to help with any of your new China questions. One of the friendly staff spent an hour with us helping us get Chinese sims working in our phones, making sure we did indeed get what we were after (a sim... More

We stayed for one night in April 2014. Wasn't too hard to find, though tucked away and up some stairs. As clean and spacious as the other Green Forest Hostels, which Is really why we picked this one. Cool chill out areas and food wasn't too bad either! Showers were ok, room smelt a bit but I blame the smelly... More

A pleasant surprise after the entrance area and stairs leading to the hostel, I would recommend this and come again! The staff speaks good English, big common area, lockers in room, everything to my expectations, if not even better. Very good description on how to get there!

We were completely surprised by this clean and friendly hostel. Don't let the dirty stairway entrance fool you. The bed was one of the best we've had in asia and the staff helped us to buy our first train ticket in China. Highly recommandable place!

Our first hostel in china, to be followed by many. A good one to start with. The communal area is nice, enough couches to launch in, and a pool table. Cheap beers as well. Good location! Just a couple of meters from a local night market - highly recommended! Also close to one a bit more famous. Good spacious double... More

The staff were super friendly, the room was clean, and overall the hostel had a nice vibe. The room itself was comfortable and had plenty of outlets for charging mobile phones, computers, etc. The WiFi signal was strong in the room (there was a wireless router on each floor) and the connection speed pretty fast for China. The hostel is... More

A great hostel; one of the girls that works there has good English and was really helpful. They helped me get my Vietnam visa and find things to do while I was waiting for it.(not so good at directions though).

I've stayed here twice and at the Guilin sister Hostel five times with the same experience in both. The rooms have always been clean and are a good size, the showers is just over tepid and bearable in warmer seasons. Neither place is suitable in winter as there's too many gaps in the windows and the showers aren't hot enough,... More
