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
I think this hostel is aiming for sort of a sort of super modern sort of vibe, which is okay, but some of it comes off a little sterile, like for example there are no soft chairs in the common area and no carpets ANYWHERE! Still, the location is perfect right in the middle of town and he staff are generally pretty good, if a little slow off the mark sometimes. Don't be put off by the way they ridiculously oversell themselves on the hostel description, the mattresses are really that good!
It was just great. We had an awesome time there. The staff was so friendly and always eager to help us out. Everything is super clean and the tours are great. And the location is wonderful, just next to the Li River, the night market and a food street.
Just one word: Perfect!

Guilin Central Hostel definitely worth it for the price! The hostel is very well located in the pedestrian area of Guilin. You can reach everything by walking: bar, restaurant, bus to the station. The place is quiet and in front of a really nice food court. The room are very clean and big! Beds are very comfortable and bigger than ordinary one. In the 6-beds-dormitory, the bathroom is in the room which is very convenient. Two French 20-years-old girls who really enjoyed their stay at Guilin

This is an amazing hostel and great value for money. The staff are exteremly friendly and help you out. There's a nice cafe as you enter which also sells the best coffee ive had in china. We stayed in a double room with a huge comfy bed and an amazing bathroom. It feels more like a hotel room than a hostrl. Go there!
Friendly staff, the beds are all new and all have individual chargers and a USB port and curtains. Really comfortable and good wifi.

Very courteous, helpful and friendly staff . We loved the location near eat streets, shops and Li river. 20 % discount on meals is great, luggage storage facilities are good. Menus were good, clean drinking water and washing facilities are very helpful.
Very central, very comfy, great vibes, wonderful staff
This hostel has a great location. Though this is a relatively cheap hostel, it is still too expensive for the poor service provided. Their tour offers are also very expensive considering how little you get for your money.
Error on my part in timing, but I was only there a short time. The rooms were clean and they provided me a towel. It seemed that anything that I did through the hotel (taxi's, tours) were much more expensive that other places I checked with.
BEST hostel! Why? Free consistently working internet (only in common room) which was huge
Nice hostel, very basic rooms but they have everything you need. The location is perfect and the staff helps you with all your questions.
Location, Location, Location. Good hostel right in the centre of town and also next to the river. Also down a street off the main road and opposite the Sheraton Hotel so nice and quiet. Lovely little common room/cafe area. Rooms were perfectly fine but it could do with a lift for people on the 4th floor!
Good: icy cold air-conditioning, powerful shower, and a location that can't be beat. Bad: hard beds, and no Wifi in the rooms. But happy overall! Eat a burger at the American bar next door- fantastic for China.
Lovely place to stay, really convenient for seeing guilin and yummy food from the market. The staff were very friendly and made us smile! Did the river trip and rice fields through the hostel which we really enjoyed but were annoyed by hidden extra costs. Could have been told about this. Still great place to stay though, and they were lovely when we just completely forgot to check out by 12!
Great location. The staff were very helpful.
The entire place is set up perfectly for every need of a traveller! We can't fault this place in any category. Great hosts, amazing food and great atmosphere. It even provides free washing facilities.
