Reviewed October 14, 2011

We stayed here 4 nights BEST MATTRESS yet in CHINA. Staff very good, great rooms, clean ensuite with good rates (this is the sister property of Bamboo Inn which is a little noisy as it's near the night clubs) This place is much quieter. Staff have very good English and are most obliging.

I and my husband stayed in a hotel for 3 weeks.it was cold then,but they have heating.the staff is very friendly and helpful. Not pushing you to buy any tour ticket. There are 3 bamboo hotels in yangshuo, all are from the same owner. For al types of budget. We stayed in bamboo house inn.
Rooms are clean, western beds and bathrooms with a bathtubs.

Location was good, very central, but don't stay here if you plan on going to sleep before 12.30/1am - very noisy and the windows do not shut properly - this didn't really affect us as we were up anyway - but might be a problem for some.
Room was clean, bed was comfy, free showergel and shampoo etc we had a lovely balcony too. Staff were friendly and helpful.
My main problem was that we were sat in the recepetion area and noticed the manager talking to guests and the vast range that different guests were paying - between 60 - 200 yuan for very similar rooms. We paid 100 a night for a room with a western toilet and balcony - think we could have got it for a little less, def would not pay anymore.

We followed the recommendations on tripadvisor and this seemed to be a very nice hostel.
Unfortunately, to us it was everything but....
The bed was not really clean (not what we were used from other hotels in China).
The rooms was on the rooftop and hat more cracks than not - I expected every minute a bird to appear in the room.
And it was LOUD - yes, in capital letters.
If you like Karaoke and you don't plan to go to bed until all ( ALL ) the bars are closed, then this place is ideal for you.
Otherwise - just forget it.
The only beautiful thing was the view of the hills and the street below.

I have mixed review for this inn in West Street, YangShuo.

Here's my findings:
1. Clean new sheet and comfy bed. Has TV and a DVD player too.
2. Bathroom below the stairs. Kinda hard to navigate.
3. Noisy hotel at night because our window is facing the street- not a major problem for me, still sleep like normal. They sell earplugs! lol
4. No cigarette smell in the room, very important!!
5. Window has crack on it, free cold air from outside can seep in (loved it)
6. No balcony. A lot of hotel that area offered balcony, which is nice to sit and look at the beautiful scenery.
7. No lift. This inn is averagely acceptable for the Yuan 100 for a night that we're paying, but I saw other nice inn around West Street area too. Maybe you would like to consider those too..Check the last picture attached to this review where I snapped blurrish photos of the hotels front door.

1. Wai Po Jia Hotel ( Grandma House Hotel) - look and sounds cosy.. just like gramma's place
2. Jia Yun Hotel- look nice and different from those tired rooms
3. YangShuo Gold Tripod Hotel - comes with tiny individual balcony with swings and red lantern hanging over them, like those old time brothels!
4. Inn of Flowers- Sounds tacky but the hotel look new and comes with balcony facing a river
5. Rosewood Inn- looked new 6. Nana My Home Hotel- look cosy, next to river too

There are many quaint options for you to choose, make sure you book before you're there because the price can go double if you decide to walk-in. Some hotels might not have booking sites in English so knowing some Chinese or having a Chinese literate friend will help a lot! :)

Room Tip: if you know how to read chinese, its good to search 4 individual hotels online instead of those book...

So loud it's impossible to sleep. Karaoke is not the best way to stay awake. It's also smelly around. Fungus and some food, i dont know.

I stayed in a 3 bed en-suite dorm without a balcony at the Inn (they have a few locations I think). The room was large and my bed was huge for a dorm bed. Very comfortable. Because it is off West Street it is loud until around 2am. But most nights I was out, and the one night I wasn't, my earplugs worked just fine. It's a great location. Very chilled out hostel. Only 5min walk from the party at Monkey Jane's and just a step away from West St bars. Not really a place to meet other travelers though; go to MJ's at night for that.
The staff is super friendly. Good advice about what to do around the area. Good bicycles for hire. Booked my ongoing travel tickets for me at a very reasonable commission (only 10RMB, basically $1.50). Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Saw the dorm room w balcony. Much smaller room. Decide whether the space or the balcony is more impo...
