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!

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.
Awesome place! The rooms are very nice and clean, the staff is very friendly and it is well located in downtown Guilin.
We stayed in a 4-beds dormitories, it was clean, comfortable, nice and spacious. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, and they all spoke very good English. We had a wonderful stay and we would definitely recommend this hostel! Amazing value for money!
The best hostel I have stayed at in China! Beautiful and clean dorm rooms. Big beds with curtains. 2 lockers (one inside bed area). Plus amazing helpful staff! Would stay again.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is good in the middle of town. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Free laundry facilities was a really nice extra.
Most friendly staff. Amazing facilities, the whole package at this hostel is super good. Rooms, food, drinks, beds, storage everything is just 10/10

Ve ry good location,staff attentive. Will stay there again. Steps were all free!!!
What an awesome hostel, the team are a bunch of wizards and really make you want to enjoy your stay. I cannot vouch for the others in the area but this one was a definete gem on my trip and the best so far in China. Beds/bunks were modern (for a backpackers) with individual power/light/shelf/curtain Staff were brilliant and very helpful Location cant get any better
Very modern hostel, as this is the totally renovated former Backstreet hostel. Rooms are in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor without elevator. On the rooftop is the laundry area with the very helpful free laundry service (3 washing maschines). The cafe is very nice, they have very nice waffels and big big sandwiches. Unfortunately they want to sell too much of their own tour packages and entry cards, instead of helping vudget travellers to see stuff on their own.
Excellent place. Great location, comfy beds, very clean and secure.
So surprised by this cool little place in the centre of Guilin. Had the perfect stay and booked in for a longer period
