Tidy and simple, good cheap hostel and cruisy place to chill out and talk to some other young travellers as they go on their way to explore the world. Difficult to find the entrance and the stairway looks trashed but nice place once you are inside. Serves decent food if you want to be lazy and eat in, and got... More

Stuck in nanning overnight. 7AM and this was one of the first in the area to answer the phone. The first couple we tried were closed or sold out. It's a hostel, so don't expect too much, but we got a largish doble bed room with bathroom/shower for 128 or 138 RMB. The rooms could use a fresh coat of... More

The staff helped greatly to arrange all necessary arrangements for travel to Vietnam and received and held an important package for me while traveling. Hot showers, clean dorms, cheap beer and a comfortable environment. I've stayed here twice now and would happily return.

I am writing this review @ 1210AM cuz I am so pissed with this hostel and their management. There is absolutely very minimal order going on here. The staff on duty does not want to impose any... So what you are getting are loud disturbances from the pool table, the TV, and the common area whereby the lesser educated Chinese... More

We stayed in Nanning Green Forest Hostel to arrange the visa for Vietnam, very convenient, had it fixed in 2 days for 550 Yuan. Hostel is very clean and neat and a great place to meet fellow travellers heading on to Vietnam. Very sociable common area, with a good selection of books including a shelf with some 15 Lonely Planets... More

Hard to find from the train station. Perhaps easier to get a taxi which should cost about 7 – 10 rmb. Very helpful reception staff, most with fairly good English. Room small but clean and a nice shower with plenty of hot water. Bed and bedding were great. Air con, free washing machine (although nowhere to hang it to dry).... More

Stayed in a private double on the 10th of October 2013 while waiting for our visa for Vietnam. The staff were very helpful providing a visa service for a charge however your visa does work out cheaper if your willing to wait a few days or you could go get it yourself the visa centre is actually in the bus...

This hostel has a lot of positive to it. The location is perfect, close to the city centre and 20 minutes walk from the train station, doable if you are carrying too much with you. I hear other travellers having a hard time to find the place. I would suggest turning on minsueng road which is the first pedestrian street... More

This is where i stayed when visiting nanning. I would suggest mapping the location for this hostel because the directions in hostel world are not correct and that could be due to the subway construction. Does no use to ask the taxi drivers they could not figure out where the hostel was located. Down the street there is an area... More

I stayed at green forest hostel for 1 night, and I am glad it was 1 night only. As mentioned in the previous reviews the entrance is very dodgy, however once you get to the 3rd floor, the common room is spacious and cozy. The girl at the reception wasn’t welcoming, it felt as if I interrupted her... and smiling... More
