#4 of 109 Specialty lodging in Guilin
Here we have excellent facilities and warming staff. You may find it amazing that such a quiet and lovely place should exist in Guilin downtown. Roaming around the lake bank, you would meet cute statues of piggy and goose along the path, there are the local opera stage set on the river, squares full of dancing ladies in happiness.

The hostel is excellently located by the lakes. We booked a standard twin room which was basic but well proportioned. We upgraded to a room at the front, but the view was not worth it as it was obscured by trees, etc. However, the hostel has a roof top terrace which is excellent and has super views. The hostel offers good quality food and drink too. They do laundry or you can do it yourself. For a hostel, I thought it was excellent. The only issue we had was with the taxi that brought us to the wrong port for the River Li cruise. We do not know if it was the hostel or the driver that got the venue wrong. Luckily we received help and made it to the other port in time to catch the cruise.

Great location youth hostel , we were upgraded to a family room with a view (it was off season mid march) walking distance to sun and moon pagoda . Great hospitality with staff who speak very good English. Also provided complimentary herbal tea to hell sooth our sore throats . No lift so be prepared if you have lots of luggage although most people we saw who started here were carrying backpacks so that's not really an issue. March is quiet so expect it to get busier later in the year If you planning to visit in summer . Hostel also arranged a river cruise to Yangshuo. Hostel also has great food and breakfast. Overall gear experience

Very fine hostel, with a good location. The staff was very friendly and good English speaking. Really means a lot when you have questions. There where a lot of backpackers here, so nice place to interact with others. The room was also very fine! Only positive vibes from here.

We stayed in this hostel for two nights and I liked so much the atmosphere and the central position near the park and river. It is handled by young girls that speak english. The room was simple, with private bathroom. There is a very nice roof top. I liked especially the activities (ideal for alone travellers) and promotions as dumping party!!
