Very nice place to stay in Guilin.

The dorm has nice wide beds, no bunk beds, but is is located in the basement of the building. The location of the hostel is excellent, close to the centre and the train and bus stations. Staff are friendly and helpful.

The ability to walk to the Hostel from the train station was very convenient. Check in went very fast and the front desk explained some of the tours they provide with more information. Overall, the hostel was good and I will recommend to others in the future.

We only stayed at the hostel for one night - it was a perfect location. In the evening we walked towards the town with the pretty lakes, I'd say it was a 20 minute walk. We felt very safe in the location. It might be a bit difficult to find the location (we were brought by a taxi driver who struggled a bit), so I'd advise to print a map of the location. We booked a tour with a raft to Yangshuo ,that as all organized well by the hostel, and at a very good price.

Staff very helpful but just 2 comments: - we asked for the airport pickup service and if we wouldn't have a chinese phone to call the hostel I have no idea how we could have ever find the driver: he was not waiting for us with our name on a paper but waiting in the KFC, without any sign, not even looking for us... - the bamboo-boat trip on Li river arranged with the hotel was very expensive and a little disappointing (bamboo is actually plastic, noisy motor, trip shorter than expected)

The hostel was well situated at the river. As Guilin is not very large it is easy to reach all the sites. We rented bikes from the hostel to go to the cave which was quite nice and went a bit further to rice fields and surroundings where you almost reach true country side. Our three-bed room was cleaned every day and quite large, nice beds, air condition, view on the river.

Peggy the receptionist was very helpful. After making the internet booking she emailed me to offer assistance regarding transfer, tours or any needs. On arrival, we were upgraded at no extra cost from twin room to a large air-conditioned family room with TV and very clean ensuite. The location is beside the river along a lane off the Guilin city main road and within easybwalking distance of the bus and train station. We had a very restful night here and would definitely return here again.

It's near the main road, where you can catch taxi to airport easily /or you can pay the pick up service (90Yuan) at the hotel, which is even cheaper than what you can find in front of the hotel. It's also locate near the bus station which isn't far from the train station and if you are up for a little walk it's about half an hour wall away from the airport shuttle bus (cost 20 Yuan per person - on Shanghai road). Great wifi signal, nice AC, nice decoration.

Great hostel - stayed in private double that was up there with a 4 star hotel room. Friendly, helpful staff and walking distance from train station (15 - 20 mins) where you can buy tickets for the Nanning - Hanoi night train (T8701 Nanning - Hanoi (Gia Lam station) from counter 1 - ask hostel staff to write this out in mandarin before you go - price 215RMB soft sleeper! - May 2014).

The hostel was an excellent location, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, we eat in the hostel 1 night which was also very good. Excellent value for money.

Loved our stay here. Great location, only a ten minute walk from the train. Food and beer is delicious and cheap, and it was really nice to sit on the porch by the river for breakfast or a drink at the end of the day! Common area was spacious and it was good fun to read the comments written on the walls by other travelers (and add our own of course). Rooms were spacious and clean, and we loved our balcony overlooking the water. Overall, beautiful hostel.

Amazing hostel, we booked the deluxe room with the view on the river and the hostel is really amazing, and extremely close to the both train and bus station. The breakfast was a bit expensive, so if you're on a budget, eat out. But the facilities are great!

Excellent location - a walk by the river, and next to Guilin's central parks/waterways, and to the nearby night market is perfect in the evening! It's also close to train and bus stations, has clean rooms with everything you'd need, and helpful staff who can recommend sights to see in the area. Thank you!

Great location, great staff, you will get all you need and more. Room size is more than you can expect, and the bed size too. Perfect place for few days trip around Guilin area.

Englishspeaking staff. Very close to the trainstation. The rooms are very nice with a big panorama-view. The hotel arranges good, cheap tours (for example the boat-cruise) for a good price

We stayed there for just a night and regreted not to stay more. Our room was beautiful, super clean, with a river view. The staff has been very helpful and has helped us arrange transportation to go to the Dragon Terrasse and the day after to the airport. By night we could walk to the night market (5min walk). I definitly recommend this place!

Lovely location right on the river with eating drinking area overlooking. Staff can speak pretty good English. Just a tad difficult to find the first time arriving,

My room was beautiful, with a large private deck that overlooked the river. Glorious views, particularly at night, when China does what it does so well, and brings out the lights. Bathroom facilities very good and clean. Even though this hostel is in the middle of the city, it is tucked away in its own little bubble of peace and tranquility.
