A very nice and cozy hostel right in the centre of Guilin. The hostel staff was super friendly and helped us with organizing tours and every others questions we had. We felt like home and the beds were huge and very comfortable. The food was amazing: it was our first western food for weeks! :) The only negative thing was that the plugs in our 6bed room didn´t work but that was okay. We totally recommend this hostel to every type of backpacker! You will love it there!


Really nice stay. The very helpful staff make the difference!


Loved this hostel. Friendly, welcoming staff. Food was great and really good value. Rooms were outstanding - we had a beautiful large twin room with ensuite and a balcony - more like a 4 star hotel than a hostel! Great location and public areas. Couldn't fault it and would thoroughly recommend.


Michael and his staff were helpful and friendly, lending us umbrellas, helping us arrange taxis, preparing a late dinner and generally being chatty. Michael cooks a wonderful sizzling beef! The room was spacious and clean and pleasant. Excellent location for sites, transport and also quite pretty. Slightly noisy in the mornings because the noise from the stairwells carries easily into the rooms.


Friendly helpful staff, great river views, OK food, bookswap, useful place for travellers.

For our departure to the airport, the hotelman suggested us to arrange a car with 90Y in saying that the airport shuttle bus costs 60Y per person. We took finaly the shuttle bus and payed 40Y for 2. I didn't appreciate it.
