“Great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I cannot compare it with other places in the area, since this is the only place where I slept. However, I found it a great value: we paid ¥50 per night per person (around 6€), and we had a nice bed each, wifi in the room, explanations about all possible activities to do in Yangshuo and surroundings, and even shower in our private bathroom, which was not supposed to be included.
The staff did not speak good English, but they were very helpful and we could understand each other.

Location is also really good, just 30 seconds from western street but quiet anyway.

It was a very good choice to stay there!

Pleasant staff, a warm atmosphere, the small restaurant is good. The view from their terrace is especially amazing! it was good to read on the deck overlooking the mountains. We would have liked to stay longer in this relaxing paradise!

Room Tip: The twin rooms are more expensive but quieter and more intimate!

Considering that you get what you pay for, I give this 4 stars.

Cons:
- The bathroom floors near the toilet are a little frightening
- The shower is ridiculous (it doesn't have a curtain and gets the entire bathroom wet)
- Although this hostel is quiet, the neighboring ones don't stop blasting music 'till 1:00 am
- Difficult to find the first time:

rough DIRECTIONS: turn down down West Street (perpendicular to the Nike store) and walk about 5 minutes. The alley is on your right. Looking down the alley you will see a circle sign with a big 11. After entering the alley and walking a short distance, turn left and you will see the hostel sign. The alleys are small and difficult to see, so if you get lost, just look for The Red Cat (a little shop on your right with rows of red cats chinese lanterns hanging above the door). The alley will be shortly after that.

Pros:
- Only $15 a night for a private room (1 queen or 2 full beds) and a private bathroom
- Awesome staff that speaks a little English
- Near a lot of good restaurants (check out The Minority Cafe for a big and super affordable breakfast)
- Free wi-fi and 700 movie choices in the lobby that can be played on the main TV
- Small but quiet roof (high with a pretty view)

I came there in the dorms first, I can say that there are good, just that they left enter drunk couple in the middle of the night in the dorm and they were quite noisy...
The last day I took in a double room and it was really clean, the only problem its that there dont have any electrical spin in the bathroom for the dorm and even for the private rooms... but out of that I can say that the hostel its really good...the people in the reception are helpful, nice, and smiley..the bathroom clean, the view on the roof really beautifful, the music in the reception relaxing...
there is many movies available in the reception if you want a break..
Great atomosphere!!
I recommend that hostel! ;)

This place was great. Yangshou is such an amazing place and this hostel was the perfect centre. The room was clean and staff were lovely. It's right around the corner from some epic beer pong at Monkey Janes but unlike a lot of the hostels it was quiet enough to get some sleep once you find your way home. Bathroom was kind of dirty but the rooftop made up for it. Sit up here and watch the sunset with a few beers or if its the end of a night I'd highly recommend the sunrise.
