Well located, modern and clean, spacious dorm with comfortable beds and decent showers and facilities. A bit too efficient and without soul, so lacking in atmosphere, slightly overpriced including the food, so it's fine but there are better value options.

Hi! We're happy that you were able to enjoy your stay here. It's sad to hear though that you felt that our hostel was without soul. Our hostel is built by a team of wonderful girls and we do try our best to create a fun atmosphere for everyone. As for our food, we hope guests can see the quality that is offered here. Many of our products are imported and we source only the freshest ingredients. We also prepare our food a healthier way and don't take short cuts like most restaurants. Central

I have been travelling for 4 years, as you can imagine stayed in hundreds of hostels but this one stands out as one of , if not, the best hostel I've stayed in. The rooms are immaculate, the bunks bed design is inspired and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Location is top, right in the action. Can't fault itx had a great night sleep and was met in the morning with a friendly smile from.reception.

Very comfortable hostel with an amazing staff that was always willing to help. Very easy to find with the directions that they provide. Pricier than other hostels in Guilin, but we were happy with the area, the wifi, air conditioning, and modernization of the hostel that we were okay with paying a bit more. Not the best hostel for meeting other travelers though.

The location is amazing and it's basically on the busiest walking street in Guilin. The facilities in the rooms are nice. Better than any other hostels i have been. The only problem is that they don't have a lift and the washing machine smells like decolonize. But I will definitely choose this hostel again and recommend to my friends.

This is by far one of the best hostels that we have stayed in the world. Great location, free washing (DIY), super large and comfy bunk beds, ensuite in each dorm and delicious food on the menu (Chinese and Western). Lots of information on tours, with no pushy selling, a map with all the key sights newly renovated and wonderfully clean. Can't recommend highly enough!!!!! We were so impressed and we had high standards as a couple recommended this hostel to us when we met in Shanghai.

Location was par. 4 bed dorm was great except our room's bathroom smelled like poop.

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry about the bathroom. It was a small drainage issue that has been resolved. Our rooms are all new and there may be some slight hiccups from time to time but we are always more than happy to assist any of our guests concerns. Thank you for staying with us and travel safe. Team Central

Really great hostel! Excellent location, cleanliness and staff. The beds were extremely comfortable and spacious, and the wifi was excellent - all rarities in China. The staff was extremely helpful and spoke great English. Be careful when you book the Li River cruise through the hostel though! You get charged extra for an English-speaking guide and we were treated to about 5 minutes of English for a 4 hour cruise. Not worth it. Not the hostel's fault, but ask them to book something cheaper.

PERFECT! I am virgo and I am picking with everything but this hostel is definetely worth staying in the central of Guilin! 本来对桂林的住宿一直都是心有余悸 这家青旅完全让我对桂林这座城市的整体印象都有所提升 订了标准间和妈妈一起住 房间东西都是简约风 特符合我的风格 两妹子人品也太赞 还帮我抗了箱子。。。

The bathroom in my room (406, if I remember correctly) had a weird/uncomfortable smell and the room floor seemed dusty.

Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in (including hostels in Europe and North America). The beds are amazing and the rooms are very clean with private bathrooms. The staff are amazing and the rice terrace tour I booked through them was great. Great wifi. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Literally the best bed I have had in over a year in China. Stay here just for that reason. Good wifi and VPN available. However no atmosphere.

Nice hostel with friendly staff. Very clean and impressively built beds. No awkward climbing up creaky bedbunks!

Thank you for your review. We are so happy that you were able to enjoy our wonderful dorm beds. Our beds were design with absolute comfort in mind and we can say with certainty that all of our guests will fall in love with them. They are the most comfortable and spacious beds in all of China.

Seriously good hostel. I used to live in Guilin and can tell you this is by far the best location for exploring the city. Modern amenities and great staff also.

The location is amazing, literally 2 min walk to the central walking street center and 10 min walk to the sun/moon pagodas and the elephant trunk hill park. The rooms are very clean and air conditioning works great. The staff speak good English and are helpful. I gave them a poor rating on facilities because our bathroom smelled like a cess pool. Even with the door closed the stench would leak into our sleeping quarters. It was quite miserable to have to use that bathroom every time.
