We were here in April and loved the place. Great laid-back vibe because of the super friendly and helpful staff . Rooms are more like a hotel than hostel, but very good value, although as others have mentionned, the bathroom is Chinese style. We loved the food. No msg but tasty! The seating areas are really nice. The Jacuzzi on the sister hotel, Village Retreat, just across the road is gorgeous! Highly recommend the massage. Location is fantastic. The girls arranged tours and transport for us. Totally recommend this place to relax and as a base to explore Yangshuo.
