Perfect location to visit the city, it is right across from the food and shopping street, 5 mins to the Pagodas and Fobo hill, and 15 mins to Diecai and Oldman hills. The common area is large and comfy, where they offer food and drink (so can't bring your own). Laundry is available free of charge (bring detergent). The dorm... More

This was a nice hostel with great facilities and lovely staff We paid for deluxe rooms and in mine, the shower was broken (so I had to hold the shower head to shower) and the door was difficult to open and close and the ac wasn't working, so it wasn't good value for money - might've been a different story...

Great hostel with everything you could need. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They speak excellent English which is great for booking tours and getting directions for getting about the city. Rooms are clean and spacious with comfy beds. Kitty the kitten was a joy to play with in the social areas (which are brilliant by the way)! And the... More

Really loved the stay in ming palace, big and clean rooms, amazing staff who helped us with organising our trip around guilin. Located in a heart of guilin so everything is near, and they had Facebook acces wifi so forgot about our vpn's for few days. Really recommend this hostel 😊

It was easy to locate and correctly marked on Google Maps. I booked for 2 days before Chinese New Year but ended up staying for 4 days for a very good price. Friendly English speaking staff, decent WiFi, clean bathrooms, comfortable bed, activities - weekly Dimsum cooking classes with the staff. Walking distance to Zhengyang Pedestrian Street. One of the... More

I had such a fab stay at the hostel and wished I'd booked more than one night. We were in a dorm room which was clean and air conditioned. However, we had so much fun in the bar of the hostel we never actually used the bed as we stayed up all night. The location is great and the staff... More

Ming Palace International Hostel is well located. It's only a few minutes walk from the main road where one can catch a bus to either the northern or southern railway stations for just 1¥ (10p). The rooms are nice with solid beds and comfy mattresses. I stayed in a dorm for 40¥ (£4). Showers have hot water (it gets cold... More
