The Climbers Inn can be thought of as the central hub for climbing travellers in Yangshuo. Its convieniently located in town near all sorts of handy services. I read a lot of reviews about how good the staff was, specifically Lily before going, and it was good to each word. Lily is such a great help to those who don't know a lick of mandarin. It can get a little loud at night so don't forget your earplugs if you're a light sleeper. Would certainly stay there again, Justin

Great stay, Lilly and Steven, the hostel owners, were very helpful and friendly. There's a great crowd at the inn and if you're looking to be close to West street and all the action, I would recommend Climber's Inn wether you are a climber or not! - Anna


Climbers Inn is great. It's a wonderful location, in the center, but down an alley so not too loud. Staff is amazing. Our plans changed like five times, plus we got into Guilin airport super late, yet Lily (the manager) was still able to set us up a car to bring us to yangshuo for a great price and helped me change our reservations. Once we got there Lily helped us find the crags and arrange transportation and bikes. Facilities are also great. If you stay anywhere in Yangshuo this should be it.

Great Hostel, Great Staff


The place to go if you're a climber. Lilly, the owner, is super helpful and lovely and will help you with everything. Excellend place to meet other climbers. Dorm was super damp though and a little moldy and smelly, the bathroom small and hot water was on and off. The private rooms are a much better option. Also the directions from the station are outdated. I still really recommend the place and will come again next time I'm in Yangshuo but will stay in a private room!


Lily is a fantastic host & so incredibly friendly & helpful. Great place to meet other climbers & like-minded travellers. We're enjoying our stay so much we're staying longer!
