This hostel boasts an excellent location, great prices and excellent breakfast but the true selling point of this hostel are the amazing hostel staff. Willing to go out of their way to help you, nothing is too much for them. They really did make our experience of guilin. The rooms are basic but no more basic than other hostels at... More

Ideal location but staff sit about chatting all day and watching tv with volume loud either on tv or on pc screens almost treating it like a front room. Toilets are squat type that smell through to your dorms. Having said that you can rent decent mountain bikes cheaply but on the whole cheap but expect nothing more.
