I booked for three nights, however upon my arrival I quickly decided that Guilin itself isn't the right place for me and that I wanted to go onto the more picturesque Yangshuo. The hostel is good value for money, I paid £52 total for a three night stay. I was on the second floor and the wifi worked perfectly. Surprisingly comfy bed, i didnt sleep that well due to noise from busy road outside my window. I was unable to close my window as the lock was broken :-( , the walls are also very thin which meant the noise travelled easily to my room. Cleanliness was average but this didn't bother me as it was adequate for the price I paid. The shower was freezing cold and upon turning it on the whole bathroom was wet including the toilet as there is no shower curtain- not ideal but it's ok.
I would recommend this hostel but only to those who don't mind noise & cold showers.
The staff are excellent, I cannot fault them at all. Very helpful.
