Unfortunately, I did not have a great stay here. There is a KTV bar beneath the hostel and I was unable to sleep much at all while I was there. I booked a boat ride in advance and they changed the price the morning I was to leave when I didn't have any option to look elsewhere. The boat left an hour late and was two hours shorter than they advertized. The cleanliness of the bathroom left a lot to be desired, common to that type of bathroom but still unpleasant.

Hi. We've stayed at different hostels at Guilin, but must say, Green Forest was the best one if you are looking for a cozy, nice little place, perfectly located. The staff are amasing. We've taken a trip to Longji terraces booked from hostel, and must say, resulted amazing for a cost practically the same, as if we would have done it by ourselves, but less stressful. Dont know about other tours, but suppose is the same. All and all, thank you guys, the stay was amazing

We only stayed one night, got to Guilin at 8 in the morning and couldnt get the room until at 13 but they were able to store our luggage until then. The room was nice. Location good, a short walking distance to the river and the night market. Staff were helpful and spoke english.

Cosy place with very helpful and nice staff. They offer or organise tours to the Longji rice terraces and the Li river for reasonable prices and give a lot of tips for sightseeing in and around Guilin. Internet was very slow though.

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.
