I had some trouble hunting this place down but so glad I did. Some of the destinations I was heading to after Nanning weren't easily accessible and the manager sat down with me for a good half hour or more going through bus and train timetables as we planned out the route. The rest of the trip wouldn't have run... More

Booked this place thru Booking.com and have selected this place because of good reviews. The reviews have been doing justice to this place. The whole place is very clean and the single room I stayed was comfortable and clean. The common area with the bar/restaurant was spacious with a pool table. Great place to meet fellow travelers. The location is... More

We arrived in Nanning after travelling through Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. This hostel was without a doubt the BEST hostel we had in 3 weeks China. First of all, the staff is unbelievable: very very helpful and kind. They have a map of the city which is 100% adapted to tourists who want to travel further: it shows you where... More

It's a good central location close to the pedestrianised shopping area, and 10 minutes' walk away there's a large Walmart, if you like that kind of thing. The hostel is in an old neighbourhood much of which seems to be about to be demolished, and the immediate surroundings are very messy, but once inside you'll find it welcoming and clean,... More

This was my first stop in china coming from Hanoi. You don't come across good common areas in hostels but this one is very nice and spacious with a free pool table. The rooms are clean with plenty of space, they also have airco and a proper bathroom. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's located among some busy... More

Perfect place if this is your first stop from Hanoi, Vietnam into China. Everyone speaks good English and is able to help with any of your new China questions. One of the friendly staff spent an hour with us helping us get Chinese sims working in our phones, making sure we did indeed get what we were after (a sim... More

We stayed for one night in April 2014. Wasn't too hard to find, though tucked away and up some stairs. As clean and spacious as the other Green Forest Hostels, which Is really why we picked this one. Cool chill out areas and food wasn't too bad either! Showers were ok, room smelt a bit but I blame the smelly... More

A pleasant surprise after the entrance area and stairs leading to the hostel, I would recommend this and come again! The staff speaks good English, big common area, lockers in room, everything to my expectations, if not even better. Very good description on how to get there!

We were completely surprised by this clean and friendly hostel. Don't let the dirty stairway entrance fool you. The bed was one of the best we've had in asia and the staff helped us to buy our first train ticket in China. Highly recommandable place!
