Trippers Carpe Diem Hostel Yangshuo
Ranked #22 of 433 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Myself, my Mum, my Sister and my Girlfriend, had the best time at Tippers Carpe Diem. The owners were so lovely and accommodating. The staff were great too.

The rooms were excellent and were a very reasonable price.

The food was amazing, especially the spicy short ribs!!!!

THe hotel itself was great. It had a lot of character and was among some stunning scenery.

If I am ever in Yangshuo again, I will for sure stay at Trippers!

Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to share your wonderful feedback and recommend our hostel as a fantastic place to stay.
Yet another review that contradicts the review of 14 May rated as 'terrible' from an anonymous writer who just opened a (new) account to try and damage our good reputation with all vague accusations that make no sense when compared to the excellent feedback from the far majority of other guests who did in fact stay with us. This writer doesn't even mention his or her location, could that be another hostel or bed and breakfast in Yangshuo?
This review site does not allow us to use the word f-a-k-e in our response that would damage its reputation, so we cannot reply to the review in question and unfortunately they wish to keep such reviews online. Although most travelers will distinguish the real from the unreal, it does affect our rankings significantly which doesn't seem right. But fortunately the excellent feedback we continuously receive on the world's largest hostel site where people really need to make a booking to leave a review and particularly the world's most effective marketing tool, the word of mouth, spread the truth about the time and efforts we continuously put into our services to make Carpe Diem one of the most enjoyable places to stay in Yangshuo.
Welcome to Yangshuo paradise!
Tripper

Stayed in a single room for 2 nights to do some climbing in yangshuo. Was about a 5min bike ride from town or less, made for a nice quiet nice sleep but easy access to town. Just bring a light if going back at night as it is dark on the road back to the hostel.
The place was well kept up and had nice staff. Good place to get some western food. No issues with bites in morning or bedbugs that I saw in other reviews. Will definitely be back on my next trip.

Stayed there over Chinese new year - didn have a reservation but was able to get a room. Found the staff there terribly rude. The room was quite below standard - did not have a good nights sleep at all. Was uncomfortable n ended up with itchy bites in the mornings - maybe an issue with cleanliness?
Food was very average and service was slow. Having a Chinese owner you would have thought the national cuisines would have been of a better standard but I was very disappointed. Street food from the market was of a better standard.

Ended up trying a few of the other hostels and bed and breakfasts around the area and it locked in my perspective that trippers carpe diem was a waste of my money.

Won't stay there again or recommend it to others.

I would prefer to keep this location a secret... but it's just too good to keep to myself.
Travelling a month through China, I could feel the western influence immediately through small details in the accommodation and general feel of the hostel. I didn't have a reservation but they booked me in right away and even arranged a pick-up at Guilin airport. I loved the location, walking distance from the city center, between greens hills and the local peasants. The food was excellent and I'm impressed that they managed to teach a Chinese cook how to make good western food (eating an apple pancake with ice cream and chocolate sauce after all those noodles and rice, was like stepping into 7th heaven).
The staff introduced themselves with their names and they were eager to practice their English and they were happy to correct my Mandarin pronunciation.
The length of hospitality surfaced when I lost my belongings on a bike trip through the rice fields. The management send some staff members with me to the police station and they guided me to an international phone so that I could inform my insurance. Without their spontaneous help, I would have been lost. In the days after, they all kept asking if I was alright and the management checked with me regularly. I really felt that they were taking care of me.
If you’re not looking for a place to stay, but a place to come home to: this is it!

I really recommend Trippers Carpe Diem. I spent almost 3 weeks in the hostel with my boyfriend and we had a very good time sharing stories and experiences with travelers we met.
The staff is great, looking after all your needs, they all are very helpful and friendly, the best crew I ever met!
The location is amazing, in a very quiet place but still close to town. The food is also very good and the breakfast strong enough to let you enjoy the full day activities you will have!

Many thanks to Tripper!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Yangshuo. Bed was pretty comfy for Chinese standards. Room is very basic, but all you need and clean. The watertemp. of the shower could be more consistent. The place is very nice to start/end your day with a good bar/restaurant with lots of choices. They have a great terrace to sit on and it is also nice that it is just outside of Yangshuo, so you can escape the masses of tourists there... Still close enough to walk though. They rent good quality bicycles, also suitable for the taller among us. Staff is very friendly and their English is great.
