We spend one night because our target it was Yangshuo, but we think that it is a good choice because it is very close to the bus station. Good staff, clean and properly atmosphere. It little bit difficult to find :) but do not be scare. Definitely good value for money we will recomendate this hostel.

Very well located near to the bus station and a good stop off before heading to Yangshuo. The staff are very helpful and speak good English. The double room we booked was good value for money. Very big and clean. We stayed here one night before heading off to Yangshuo. Drinks and food money all good prices and tasty!

I loved my stay there. I was staying in the same hostel at Yangshuo and loved it so much i decided to go to the same one in Guilin. They have really good breakfast deals and the staff was 100% helpful. I have to say that the one in Yangshuo is much nicer though this one is also much cheaper of course ;). Good job! One more thing: you can enjoy movies and play wii anytime and they have the cutest cat ever!

A very nice stay, delicious breakfasts and lots of great information on activities and tours. The staff was stellar and helped rearranged our booking to their sister hostel in Yangshuo so we stay longer there rather than Guilin which was amazing of them. Comfortable room, really great bed in the double bed room, the only down side was the noisy street with the cards players by the window.

We only stayed for a night. Easy to find, staff really nice, common room looked really nice. We got room without window, window was actually into inside hall so no light. It was ok for a night but not more than one night. Room was clean though and shower was good. Didnt have time for breakfast.

Definitely the best hostel we stayed at during our entire China trip. The staff is wonderfully helpful and the hostel is located right in between the train and bus stations and the sights in town. The food they serve is actually good, too.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 6 nights in Guilin. We continually found ourselves saying that this was the best hostel we have stayed in. Reasonably priced, the atmosphere was very chilled and the food was lovely. If we come back to Guilin I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff really looked after me, giving me cups of warm water for my cold and after sun for my poor red roasted skin. Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone!! Very enjoyable experience.

Great hostel, I would rather recommend it. Next to the bus station and railway station, close to the centre, where the picturesque riverside is. Clean rooms, nice atmosphere. Welcome staff. I don't mind to stay in Green Forest again.
