Really enjoyed our stay, thank you! Sometimes a little noisy at night, but generally very comfortable.
Nice place, good location, helpful staff
Staff in particular was very helpful and spoke great English.
La cama mas comoda que hemos dormido en China,buen ambiente, habitación sencilla y acogedora con vistas al rio. A 5 min de las pagodas, 7 del centro y 3 de la estacion de bus. El personal genial y habla ingles. Wifi correcto por todo. Mejoraria la comida y el lobby es pequeño pero aun asi esta bien. Unico malo, que no es culpa del hotel y que puede llegar a ser molesto es que si tienes vistas al rio, abajo de reune un monton de gente jugando a las cartas y se pasan el dia gritando. Repetiria
This is simply a great hostel. Cheap, friendly staff, good food, good location, good WIFI, etc... The only improvement they need are the beds in the dorms. They make a lot of noise when you move. Besides that: top choice!
We enjoyed our stay at Green Forest. It was in a good location, had good facilities, comfortable beds, helpful staff and plenty of tour options. We'd definitely recommend it.
Lovely place is a great location. Got a room upgrade and the place had a huge window and was super comfy bed. Free laundry, food is a little bit pricey - you're paying the tourist price. I didn't try it but I'm sure it would taste good. They have good value tours and helpful staff. Easy to recommend this place
Fantastic people and hostel facilities. Thanks for the included water and laundry.
Nice place to stay in Guilin with very friendly and helpful staff who taught us how to play the Mahjong which was good fun. Also, nice cozy common area where you can meet other travellers. Would stay here again.
Het personeel was erg relaxed en sprak goed engels. Ook toonden ze inderdaad interesse, wat ik wel goed vindt. De kamer waar ik in zat (double bed ensuite) was ook erg ruim en comfortabel. Verder zit het dichtbij de trein (6-10 min lopen). Bij het trein station staan ook de bussen, daar kan je een bus pakken naar yangshuo. Voor misschien op de bamboe bootjes. Hoe, wat en waar, dat legt het vriendelijke personeel we
This was the best hostel we stayed in on our trip to Beijing, Chengdu, Guilin and Yangshuo. The staff are friendly and speak good english. The room was lovely with a nice view of the river. It is a pity that we could only stay here for 1 night. We took one of their day tours to bamboo rafting and got dropped off in Yangshuo.

it was great hostel! a very relaxed place and the people were very helpfull. the beds were nice and soft, the room was spacious and the bathroom was so clean! the food is farely cheap compared to other hostels.
Great place to stay. Nice big bunk beds Close to everything, train and bus station and sights.
Excellent location n easy to find from the bus station.. Within walking distance to eating places , shopping and nearby elephant tusk hill n twin pagoda. Strongly recommend. Only complaint is taxi to airport came 30 minutes late but not the hostel's fault.
Is a great hostel. Just a comment, there's AC in the dorms, which is great; but some people use in a crazy way, like putting 18 degrees or leaving it working all the night, which is not really comfortable for everybody.
Tres bonne ambiance dans,le,coin salon, salle a manger, salle de jeux. staff tres serviable et gentil, qui joue aussi et apprend les jeux locaux aux clients, cest plutôt cool. parcontre, j'ai vraiment passée une nuit horrible, un homme est arrivée dans la chambre a plus de minuit, fesant du bruit je me réveille deux heures plus tard, et voilà qu'il y a maintenant deux hommes de plus, dont deux qui discutes et font du bruit dans les lits du haut. une nuit où je n'ai donc pas beaucoup dormi.
I stayed in this hostel in both a double and a dorm. Paying extra for the double is DEFINITELY worth it- our bed was huge and extremely comfortable and our room had a large window overlooking the lake (albeit the single pane windows made the room a bit noisy). The double was pretty basic: clean but dark and dingy. The common room is great and so is the food; drinks are very decently priced and they have a cat! The staff was great and speaks perfect English. One of my favorite hostels ever.
Creo que es un hostel muy bueno, si vas con poco tiempo a Guilin, ellos mismo te pueden organizar la visitan típicas...como las terrazas de arroz y el tour en el barco de bambú hasta llegar a Yangshuo.
Very well located hostel with great staff and great value for money. Very clean, very laid back. Come here if you like cats!
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.
