The hostel is at walking distance from Yangshuo, in a quiet area. The staff is friendly and help planning the routes. The food is not the cheapest but is pretty delicious. They give the chance to take some old bikes for free after 4 pm. They even let us to have a shower when we came back for a cycle... More

I stayed here for four nights in a single room. The room was large with comfortable bed and good sized bathroom although it did smell a little bit (no worse than most other places in China!). The room was a bit damp and it didn't really feel like anything dried but it did rain for my whole stay which didn't... More

The staff really make this place - they are incredibly helpful, suggested loads of great hikes and bike rides in the area and spoke very good English. The hostel itself is lovely - we had a private double with bathroom, lovely big comfy bed (rare in China we've found...!). We loved the outdoor area restaurant too. The place is 15... More

I loved staying at Trippers Carpe Diem. It is located right outside (15 min walk along the river) Yangshuo town. The highlights of visiting Yangshuo are the beautiful rivers, karst peaks, farms, villages and wonderful Chinese people. What is not appealing is the tourist trap that Yangshuo is- pedestrian shopping streets, shopping streets, shopping... If you are more of a... More

Was planning to stay here for only a night but quickly added to add another one, and another, and another! Great place with a great view, its a little bit outside of the busy town which might make going out in the night a bit more difficult, but all people actually all stayed in the hostel terrace every night cause...

I stayed here with family in February for a short while as part of a longer month trip in China. It is linked with the cosy garden which is 2 minutes up the road so this can be slightly irritating if you have to keep schlepping between the two as trippers has the food and reception etc. hostels best points...

Not only is it reasonably priced and located in a quiet peaceful countryside, but the owners are people of honesty and integrity. It is close enough to town to get to all the sights and sounds easily, but far enough to be able to unwind. Great food in the restauarant, bike rentals, and a super friendly staff to help you...

Only stayed here for one night and afterwards decided to go to another hostel closer to the center. For me it was a bit too quiet there, I was all alone in the dorm which was also nice after already one month of sharing dorms. But since I wanted to meet some people, this was just not the right place... More
