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). The room and showers were clean and modern, the room was warm with nice thick duvets and the showers were... More

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

Green Forest Hostel has multiple locations including Nanning, Guilin, and Yangshuo. I stayed at the one in Yangshuo for over a week and loved it, so I decided to stay at Green Forest in Nanning as well. I will begin by saying that their hostel in Yangshuo is much nicer than the one in Nanning. Because of this, I was... More

After to unexpectedly have to change my accommodation arrangements in Nanning I came across this hostel. Unfortunately there is no elevator and it is located on the 3rd floor but after my trek upstairs I was able to book a private room for several nights right away and was happy to be welcomed by inviting and friendly staff (who mostly...

Stayed in Nanning for 4 nights before heading south toward Hong Kong. The hostel is OK with a large communal area - Large pool table, a large tv (you can watch films on it too), communal computers and a guitar. Stayed in a double room on the third floor. Was OK for the short duration of being there, but The... More

Like most people reviewing this hostel, we are here on our way to Vietnam. The hostel can arrange your visa before you go to Vietnam which is a great service as it saved us trying to find the visa office. We just gave our passports, 2 x passport photos and paid for it. Shortly after booking, we received an email... More

Nice place to stay. Clean room and lobby. We have used the Vietnam Visa service which was straight forward and no fuzz. Did also the laundry there, bring your own clothesline, as there is none (or at least we didnt see it). Would stay there again another time.

Only passing through Nanning, this hostel was really nice place to refresh ourselves. Our double room was cheap and clean in any hostel standard. Sheets were clean and bed just soft enough. View was to the back yard and the riverbank, where people were skateboarding and dancing. The entrance was a little hard to find at first, probably 'cause we... More
