“Low Price, High Quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Travellers Land, so much so that we extended for an additional two nights. Like other reviewers, we were a bit weary about this hostel because of it's price, but the low price in no way reflected the level of quality. We paid about $11 USD per night for a private room w/ en-suite bathroom.

Pros:
-Price (Can't be beat. Dorm beds from $2.50 USD per night, Privates for $11 USD)
-Location (10-15 minute walk to city center. Near Yulong River bike trail)
-Helpful staff (Friendly, English speaking and able to answer all the questions we had)
-Cheap beer for sale (Only $0.75 for a large bottle)
-Nice common room (very welcoming with A/C that blasts)
-Movies every night at 9:00PM
-Bikes for rent
-Free Pick-up the day you arrive in town
-Free Wifi and computers available (A must these days)
-Free Laundry Service (A major plus when on an extended trip)
-Beer Fish dinner was tasty, fun, and a good value


Cons:
-Charge for use of kitchen
-Very firm mattress (was more like sleeping on a wooden floor)
-Cleanliness of bathroom could have been better, but it was acceptable

Overall, Travellers is a really great hostel and we definitely recommend it to other backpackers looking for a quality place at a low price in Yangshou. You really can't go wrong here!

When we were looking for accomadation in Yangshuo, we thought the cheapest option would not be so good, but we were on a budget. We were wrong; the cheapest option is so much better!

For a double private toilet we paid 70Y per night. For that we got western toilets (not garrunteed or even clean in Chinese hostels), DIY kitchen, 4Y beer and 5Y rice wine. The rooms were clean with A/C, TV's and kettles, the washing machine is free, the internet is fast.

The common room is still a little bare, but thats only because the place is so new that it hasn't had time to develop it's own atmosphere. But it does have personality! The owner Hamson (not hansom) speaks very good english. He runs the place with his family. Do not be suprised if your invited to eat with them, and agree to cook dinner the following night!

The location is a little out of the way from the main part of town. In a town like Yangshuo though, being a little way out means an extra 5 minute walk. I didn't mind that at all. The hostel is tucked away down a little side street among where the real people live. The small hole-in-the-wall restaurants close by are amazing value; I paid 4Y for a good bowl of beef noodles, where in the main tourist area it would cost 12Y.

All up I would highly recomend this hostel, it is everything a hostel should be. It's clean, cheap, fun and has SOFT beds!!!! I would be hard pressed to find a better hostel.
