Definitely the best hostel in yangshuo with incredibly good location and nice staff.
Really helpful and friendly staff. They were able to give me great advice and help plan trips. I'm a hiker so it was nice to get some advice on routes. The rooms were great and allowed for heating during the winter time. Other places charged extra for this I soon learned. Good chilled out atmosphere and late social hours allowed. Only negative was they charged for the maps. In fact their company in Guilin provide free printed maps. Nothing major though
The decor of greenforest hostel was amazing and it had an excellent restaurant/bar area that was really nice to chill out in. I liked that this hostel was home to locals and foreign tourists alike. I made some great friends and memories here. i warmly recommend this place.
The staff there are the best,whatever you need,they never refuse and try their best.Location is excellent,just walk to all the nightlife area and main business street,stand in the roof,you can get wondferful skyline.The room is cheap,big and clean,that's one of the reason why I choose there.
Front Desk Staffs answered all our questions, recommended some sights to see, gave us directions, etc. and made sure our stay at the hostel is up to our satisfaction. They always wears a smile!!!

I have been to many hostels in my life and Green Forest Hostel remains the best so far! We were welcomed by the nicest staff of the city, smile face and very helpful. The place is great, clean, green energy friendly, suggest delicious breakfast... we had a lovely, PERFECT time! Thank you Green Hostel !
I highly recommend staying at this hostel. It is clean and safe. Furthermore, the staff do a great job of making sure you make the most of your stay by providing you with travel suggestions and directions to the points of interest.
Really clean, big, nice, new place in the centre of town. Staff are helpful and friendly, showers are hot and big with great pressure, the rooms are big, the beds are big. No complaints at all!
Staff was always friendly and helpful. The room was large and only had 1 bunk bed in the 6 bed dorm. Great location on a pedestrian street. Bathrooms were nice and clean.
I highly recommand this place! Great staff great atmosphere great location and super super clean (for the dorms)!

Green Forest Hostel is a lovely hostel with great views from the dining area and the rooftop patio! The staff are all really friendly and funny and are happy to help with booking excursions and giving local knowledge. The hostel has a nice mix of Chinese and foreign tourists.
Great hostel, roof terrace with nice views. Very central location though it took me a while to find it. Really clean and pleasant rooms.
The staff here are the absolute best! They went out of their way to help us get things sorted (even when we surely causing them headaches!) and were always keen for a friendly chat. A super smiley bunch and because of them I'd recommend the hostel to anyone. The private rooms are also fabulous - clean, spacious and a delight to stay in.
Great hostel, atmosphere, staff, cleanliness and location. Just don't stay in the rooms over the main street.The windows don't isolate noise from outside so it feels like your in the middle of the street. Definitely recommend it.
This would be hard to find without the comments that the staircase is behind a hat shop. It is an oasis of clean and quiet in the centre of Yangshuo. The staff is extremely helpful. However, do not stay here if you want a quiet stay in nature. It could be because of the national holiday but the price was extremely high - more like a hotel than hostel.
The staff was amazing. So nice and helpful. The opportunity to change some nights to your house in Guilin was great although Guilin wasn't that nice... I like Yangshuo more.
On a street with lots of good food. Has a terrace with great views. Food was ok but why eat here when you are on a street with so much good food for cheaper.
This hostel has amazing huge showers and the bunk beds in the rooms are great BUT someone brought bedbugs into the 6 bed dorm and the staff/owner just keeps changing the sheets instead of replacing the mattresses. The staff was really good about offering to move me to another room, but I left the hostel. It is too bad because the hostel is very clean in general but the entire hostel will be filled with bed bugs if they do not fumigate and fix the problem soon.
