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!

best Western breakfast in China yet! good menu and food overall
Great Feel to this Hostel. Front desk and bar were very friendly and easy to talk to. The helped us book tours and direct us around the city,
This was one of my best hostels I have ever stayed in ^^ I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to stay in guilin :3
Great value for money hostel. The common room is excellent, and the staff are very friendly. Be sure to join in the Majong sessions at 8pm each night!
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.
Young and enthusiastic staff with excellent english. No wifi in the rooms which was a bit of a let down.
Excelent location and very helpfull staff.. Great dumplings night...
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 staff running the hostel, very helpful and nice. nice common areas too
Very friendly and helpful staff that made our visit to guilin a memory for life.
What a I remember the most is the Staff, all different, each person bringing something special to the Hostel! They even show us how to play Maj Jong! You can talk about everything to them. There are always there to help you. It was a great time!
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.
Very nice hostel, really helpful and nice staff. If we come back to Guilin, we'll definitely stay at Green Forrest again.
Great location right by the bus station and on the river. Nice communal area for hanging out in. Staff speak good English and were very helpful. Comfy bunks too.
Very friendly hostel, with clean rooms and great location. The only complaint is that the staff tend to be quite loud while playing games in the lounge; it happened three times in three days, and it was rather unpleasant for all guests still left in the common areas...
Easy to find and very friendly staff. All possible activities were laid out for anyone who was interested, staff was very helpful, and the vibe at the hostel was lively. Great place!
