Really nice hostel and beautiful rooms (we stayed in private double bed room). The rooms indeed look more like hotel rooms than hostel rooms. The hostel lounge was also very cosy and you could order quite tasty western food there. Good breakfests and good coffee. However, during the peak season the room rates go rather high so I would say the value for money is not that grat at that time...
Really nice hostel in Yangshou close to west street. The staff were more than willing to answer questions and provide guidance.
Nice place to visit. Very quit and relaced, nice rooftop terasse. Not really much to do at the hostel itself.
Green forest hostel is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The dorm room was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The bathrooms are also very clean and properly functioning, and there are enough toilets and shower stalls that you don't have to wait in line. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was especially appreciative because I arrived a day later than I had booked because of an 8 hour flight delay, and they were very understanding and didn't charge me. Great place!!!
This was the best hostel that my friend and I stayed in while traveling through China. Great find! The only downside was that the staff recommended tours did not meet our expectations.
Absolutely amazing hostel with excellent staff!
Great location, helpful staff. There were loads of trips we could do in reception which the staff helped us book. Renting a bike was cheap and a great days activity! The rooms were great, really comfy bed and they offer good breakfast options. Would recommend the ginger tea! Thanks
Stayed here for three nights. Great location, right off of west street. The staff were very helpful. They helped us book bicycles, a bamboo raft down the river, and were able to answer any random questions we had. The hostel has a lot of natural light and a great feel, though it definitely isn't the rowdiest of hostels. The bed was probably the comfiest i've slept in since moving to China. All in all, it's a good atmosphere for relaxing and plotting the next day's adventure.
Fortunately I was aware of the entrance, or I might not have gone here. However, once inside I thought this was one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in. The rooms were certainly hotel quality and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was convenient to lots of restaurants, bars, and shopping. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

This is not really a hostel, more like a hotel, except for the entrance is hidden on the 2nd floor of a building that you can find after climbing up a dark and dirty staircase. There is one common sitting area / coffee, no real hostel atmosphere. Communication with the staff was a bit complicated and there were no safes / lockers available. The rooms are nice however, spacious and clean, so if you're more after a hotel style accommodation then this is your choice.
Great clean hostel in excellent location!
Clean, spacious rooms, helpful staff, wonderful tours and rentals available (¥20 for a good bike for a whole day), rooftop garden, mini library, located in the middle of downtown Yangshuo without being surrounded by loud establishments. This was my favourite place to stay in all of China
Beautiful spacious hostel in an amazing location. Staff are also very helpful and will organise local day trips and transport for you.
Great hostel. Clean rooms and bathrooms and the aircon worked. Another great piece of work from the Green Forest Hostel group. Would reccomend.
Great Hostel! the staff is amazing, very helpful, restaurant is really nice with a great variety of food.
The double room was very spacious, location is great. Wifi worked well in the room, very happy with my stay there!
Great place. Out door area was beautiful. Don't let the stairway entry scare you. I would stay here again.
This is an amazing hostel with great, helpful staff and a healthy breakfast. The location ist perfectly close to everything. Although the stairs to the hostel are really dirty, the hostel is perfectly clean and nicely furnitured. The facilities are seem to be really new and they have quite a beautiful rooftopterrace. I highly recommend this place and I have seen a lot of hostels in the last six months.
Our stay there has been wonderful . The hostel is truly beautiful with a perfect location. The staff has been very nice and helpful: they organized pick up from Guilin Airport, helped us rent bicycles and scooter... Our room was super cozy (incredible bed!) and very clean. The only thing to be improved is maybe the wifi access that was not always working in the room (4th floor) . I would definitly stay there again! I loved our stay!
