Very good place to stay in Guilin! Nice for backpackers as well as "normal" tourists. The atmosphere is unique and the staff helpfull.


Nice hostel in a really relaxed city. the staff was nice to answer all my questions.


Nice place with decent location, nice staff and helped arrange airport pickup


Perfectly serviceable. Location great for walking along the riverside. Stayed in one of the cheaper bunk / twin rooms and it was small but clean and good value for money. Beds hard as noted. Would recommend for a short stay to Guilin.

Wow! The best hostel so far! It looks like a 3/4 stars hotel btw.. Nice position, very clean and quiet, the staff is a bit cold and the kitchen is not as cheap as outside.


This is more an hotel than an hostel: the facilities are very good for the price ! but the atmosphere is not so young and fun. The staff is helpful and speaks good english, they can arrange you nice trips not too expensive !


The best beds ever. I was in a dorm and had a huge bed for myself, it almost feld like a double bed. Also the best breakfast, they would offer more free toast and thee if the breakfast itself was not enough. Very helpful and good advices. Location on a quite side in the river, 10-15 minutes walk from train/busstation. Easy to find if you follow the hostelworld directions. Also 10 minutes walk to the center. The massages are not in the hostel anymore but they gave me good advice for somewhere els


Good hostel, wide ranging clientele, met families and older people, as well as backpackers. Good tours, good airport service. Couple of creepy crawlies in the bathroom, but that's unavoidable. Loved my stay.


Really attentive staff and clean accomodations. Love the location on the water


A lovely hostel, great large and comfortable beds. All very clean. Good bathroom facilities too. Perfect location, close to the train and bus station and only 10-15 minute walk to the main lakes in the city. Staff were very helpful and spoke great English. Be prepared for mosquitoes as it is right on the river as the name suggests!


Really nice - laid back hostel - staff spoke English and was eager to help - especially one guy - no problem to leave your luggage in the locker room, even if you are not staying in the hostel anymore (e.g. 2 days trip to Longji rice terraces) - would definitely come here again!


Convenient, tranquil location, very spacious room with large beds and shared dorm bathroom, very clean! The cafe by the river was nice as well. Although kettles are provided in the rooms, it would be nice to have free water in the lobby area.
