Not a whole lot going on in Guilin, but this is a clean hostel and great value for eat you get. The guy who runs the place, Mike, is quite friendly and speaks perfect English. Very helpful and booked our ticket to Dazhai Village (Longsheng) for us. We would never have known how to do it otherwise. Good hostel.

some members of the staff were nice in the reception, including the manager and Penny (I think she was called like this), while another girl had no idea when I asked her info about extending my visa in Guilin. The hostel is ok, not big common area and rooms not outstanding, great location though, very close to the city center and the lakes.

Very nice hostel, the owner Mike does everything, to make his visitors happy. I had a nice, big room with views of the river. The food is good and the staff was very helpful with directions and organizing a trip to the Dragon Backbone Rice Terrasses.

Booking in advance was no problem. We even reservated some tours per E-Mail before and everything worked perfectly. They have a great management!

We were highly disappointed with the add-on services and one particular staff's attitude from the hostel. We were quoted a price of 250 RMB for sleeper class bus from Guilin that would reach Shenzhen at 5-6 am. Only after discussing the internet price of 220 RMB, the ticket price was reduced to 230 RMB. At the bus station, the helper staff who dropped us off was extremely rude. When we boarded the bus, we were told that bus reaches Shenzhen at 10am. We missed our next flight due to wrong info.

It's very clean, the rooms are big, the beds in the dormitory are for 2 people (no bunk beds), there is only 1 bathroom for the room (6 people my memory is good), but it's huge ! And the dormitory cost only 30 yuan !! There are at least 2 computers (in the entrance) and they are very good, there are 3 wifis, a good choice of food and the terrace is nice.

I highly reccomend staying at this hostel! The rooms were great and clean. The location was great and the tours they offer are very good value and so lovely. If you get a chance have a drink with Mike (the owner), you won't regret it until he brings out the Baijiu (Chinese liquor)! Made great friends at this hostel and won a hangover. Overall great time.
