Overall a very good hostel. Good location and they can help you book a lot of tours. My only problem is that I went in March and the rooms were really cold! I turned the heater on but still felt cold. I tried to ask the reception and they didn't do much. Maybe some heated blankets would help...
Well located hostel, good facilities, free laundry, clean. *HOWEVER* I would NOT advise booking tours or tickets with them. I booked a bus ticket and ended up getting in 2.5 hours later and to a completely different location than promised, having to spend extra money on taxis and almost missing my flight because of it.
We were in Yangshuo during the first week of February and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hostel for everyone!!! The staff is nice, and tells you all about the places you should visit, how you should visit them, and they have private tours for reasonable price too. The hostel is equipped with everything you would need. The best thing is, that they are aiming for a backpacking-like REAL traveller-friendly aspect, which suits them well. If you see some hostels for a few yuan less, don't think, get this!

lovely bright, new, clean dorm rooms - staff are alright, maybe their English isn't great but they're helpful. You go up some pretty grotty stairs, but the hostel itself is very clean and bright and has a roof-top terrace, where you can sit at night and drink a beer, whilst looking at the Karst peaks all lit up.
We loved this hostel! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed... The food is also very good but regarding their travel service, they don't organize anything, they just have a brochure with what you can do but then you don't know how to do it. This Green Forest Hostel has nothing to do with the one from Guilin, this one is much better!!! I would definitely stay here again :)
One of the best hostels I've stayed in in China. Stayed in a three person dorm room and then a private queen room and both were exceptionally clean and well presented. Facilities are excellent, food was great and reasonably priced, and the staff are very friendly and eager to please.
We booked a twin private room which is big enough and has all facilities we need! The corridor with tables and chairs are very convient for friends. You can rent bycicles there and the price is reasonable.
The best hostel in which I have been. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. The stuff is nice and welcoming, with a perfect english. The six bedroom was really nice (and the bed was comfortable, which is really unusual for chinese hostels). The lobby and the terrace were amazing and we could relax and enjoy the weather there. There are books which one can read. Really good! I hope to come back!
This is a great hostel! This hostel is a great place to relax and meet people.The staff are so helpful and friendly...but not the manager ‘’I had better.‘’ face...Anyway， what a hostel should be!good WIFI IN THE ROOM ,The room was very clean and the beds very confortable. We had a great time and would whole heartedly recommend this hostel to anyone.Just perfect :)
I chose this hostel for the terrace. It was awesome that you can drink beer with a great view of many rocks in the terrace.The double room we stayed was modern and very big. You could pay 100USD for the room in some cities. Even those who don't usually stay at hostel will like the room. As other reviews say, it was difficult for us to difficult the hostel too- I pinned the location on google map but it didn't help, I think google suggests wrong place..Stick with their direction instruction.
Perfekt! It was the best hostel on my whole trip in China. I really liked my stay there. Highly recommened. Only the way description should be edited: The bus stop has changed, so it was difficult to find the hostel with the old description ;)
Really nice hostel, modern and well-furnished. Large communal area with bar and good food. Very friendly and helpful staff and a great atmosphere all round. Kept nice and warm in winter! Good value tours, especially the cormorant fishing. A day out riding the bikes around the countryside is a must.
Very friendly and helpful staf! The hostel is also nice and has a very good bar and restaurant. Thank you for your warm welcoming
This hostel is just beautiful. Great english speaking staff, super clean bedrooms and shower rooms. I definitelly recomend it.
Great recent hostel: you have to stay there if you go to yangshuo!!! It is even difficult to leave from there...
Walked in to find people dancing and having a good time. They immediately invited us to join them. Beds were super comfortable. Power point and lamp next to beds. Lockers were decent size. WiFi worked on all floors and in the dorm rooms. Yangshuo is such a beautiful city. I'd definitely come back.
Great hostel in perfect location. Unbelievable friendly and helpful staff. They made me feel like being home. Amazing view from the roof terrace and the common area. New, clean hostel. Only sometimes a bit cold in the rooms. Very good food! Helpful advices for trips in and around Yangshuo. Great place to meet people. Probably my favourite hostel in China :) Thanks for the unforgettable time!
Great clean place, a little hard to find the stairs the first time but after that is fine. Staff are a little limited in their English, so be patient. Decent hostel, would recommend and stay here again
Great place. Great staff. Clean. Good location. Rent a mountain bike and go riding around the loop to the west.
No doubt, one of the best Hostels i have ever been. Everything was cool, from the friendly staff, to the people saying there, to the atmosphere, the rooms, the exterior lounge area, the food and the noodle soup (which i must have had thousands) and they will do their best to help you with other situations, like Visa to Vietnam and with anything they can. Was perfect, thank you again guys! Chimp
