We had a great time in Guilin by staying in this hostel.
Like the previous post said, the wifi was not working, but later it did work (they sent someone to fix it).
We stayed in a budget double room and it was very nice. Quite a big room and the bathroom was very clean. We also saw the bigger deluxe rooms, they are for more comfort and space.
Airconditioning worked fine, even with the lights off.
We had no problems with noise, at least not as many as in other parts of china.
They serve good breakfast and if you pay attention not expensive at all, you can have 4x toast with jam and fried egg plus full glas of juice for 20 yuan, try to get that at any western restaurant, it will be the same price or higher (and yes an extra coffee is (relatively) expensive, but that is the case in whole of china).
Speaking about coffee, they have just installed an italian espresso machine. We have tasted a cafe americano and cappucino, both were the best we've tasted so far in china. Real beans, no powder coffee. If you want some good coffee, go here.
Besides that they've got a selection of freshly made juice.
The staff was helpful in arranging tours and information for us, they also have discounts on park entrances inside guilin (example: solitary beauty peak = 130 yuan, they had it for 100). They spoke english pretty well and we got everything we need.
