3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

+ Room was spacious + Air conditioning was good + Location perfect, next to the pedestrian street + Easy to find with the instructions provided by hostel + English speaking staff - Bathroom smelled bad - Wifi wasn't good in the room - Very noisy hallway and you can hear it to your room (acoustics is very poor)

We stayed here for 4 nights, and couldn't be happier with the hostel. Staff was extremely friendly, and spoke good English, always happy to help. Beds were comfortable, had curtains for privacy and security lockers were well located by the beds for extra safety. Private bathrooms in the shared rooms were also appreciated. Food downstairs was reasonably priced and delicious... More

We had a private room and it was SMELLY! The room had an overwhelming odor of something I could not identify. The bathroom also smelled very strongly of sewer - it was bad enough that I found myself going in there trying to hold my breath as long as I could. The smells were so bad that I dreaded going...

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in a private double room. The whole hostel was clean and tidy, there was air conditioning and the en suite shower was brilliant. There is wifi throughout the hostel, the main area has a VPN built in so you can get into Facebook and watch iPlayer with no problem. The staff are... More

Definitively like this place. It is centrally located and easy to reach by bus. The staff is very helpful and really nice. The dorms are new, spacious and very confortable with a bathroom attached. You can also do laundry free of charge. No fault on this one. 100% recommended.

Stayed in this hostel with 5 other friends in June 2016. We had a shared dorm with a private bathroom. It is a cheap hostel thats very clean, the staff is super friendly and overall has a good atmosphere. If I visit Guilin again in the future, would definitely stay here and highly recommend it to everyone!

I would definitely recommend Guilin Central Hostel. I booked a private double room, which was very spacious, clean, with a very modern and new look. Take earplugs because it the walls are a little thin. The hostel is conveniently located in the touristy area in Guilin near the river, Elephant trunk hill and other must sees. Within several meters there... More

The hostel is well named, it is indeed very centrally located, it is clean and good value for money. The staff are especially helpful. The bedrooms were clean and there is a good social area downstairs. Although I preferred Yangshuo this is a great base to explore Gui Lin. They do have a sister hostel in Yangshuo which is superb.

The room was really big and comfortable, even though there was some humidity in the air. More towels should be provided (at least one hand towel). Activities made available were very nice, as the dumpling making night. The staff, specially Kevina, was great.
