When you are a climber, this hostel is the place to be. We are no climbers, so this hostel didn't really fit us. The atmosphere is focussed on climbing. The location is great, close to West Street, but it was a little hard to find at first cause it's in a dark alley. The room was really clean, but bring your earplugs because it can be noisy with all the music and party going on in the streets. The staff is amazing! Very kind and helpful.


Lockers are needed to tore valuables


Nice and comfortable room, just too noisy


To all climbers: this is the hostel you need to stay at! Lily is amazing and really knows everything you need to know about getting the most out of your climbing trip to Yangshuo. Staying here got our trip off to the very best start, i couldn't have hoped for more!


Great and very helpful staff.


My husband and I stayed in a private room at Climber's Inn. We were there for nine nights and loved it. The room wasn't fancy but it was perfect for us, and Lily, the owner, had the rooms cleaned every day. Lily herself is the BEST. She was more like a tour guide/mother than hostel owner. She showed us where to climb, took us to good restaurants, and advised us on where to go for the cheapest and best version of everything we needed. We met quite a few other climbers there. Would recommend!!

Your host Lilly is absolutely amazing. Excellent english and not only gives great advice, she will even join you for dinner and sometimes a climb. Rooms are kept clean and rates are good

We didn't feel welcome and room was over price. The reception is messy and dirty, hotel was clearly over booked due people sleeping at reception and stuff everywhere.


Lily is so helpful and on the ball! She helped us organize everything and made us feel relaxed as well as kept us busy with things to do around the area. This hostel is ideal if you're climbing, but even if you're a beginner climber or you just want to explore Yangshuo, Lily has got some great ideas and will help you organize your stay in the best way possible. We highly recommend this hostel!


This is a great hostel especially for climbers. Lily is very nice and helpful and helps experienced climbers organise trips to crags for free. This is the place to be if ur looking for climbing partners.


Nice place. Good location.


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!


the location is convenient: not far from bus station (15~20 min wals) and really close to the river ! It is 100 meters away from the crowded Xi Jie, so expect a lot of agitation in the streets -> quite some noice Have some ear plugs and your stay will be perfect


Lilly at the front desk was incredible! She was so helpful in getting us set to climb while we were there and got groups of climbers together which was really fun. Our room unfortunately did not have any heat, just an electric blanket, which got very chilly at night. In addition there were some issues with the water heater so we had some trouble taking good showers.
