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.

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.

Die Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich und haben uns geholfen, eine Lösung zu finden, als ein anderes Hotel unsere Buchung verschludert hatte. Das Hostel bucht Reisen íns Umland (zu den Reisterassen, nach Yangshuo etc.) Alles in Allem ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt.

Another useless recommendation from Lonely Planet. Arrogant manager. Dorm room smells mouldy and located in the basement of hostel. Don't bother. Much better hostels in Guilin.

The staff were very friendly and helpful even though we were clearly just passing through. The bathroom. Though small was very Clean and our room, with its white sheets, large window, sun block drapes, flat screen TV and a/c was more like a boutique hotel. The location on the side of the river with its scenic walks made we wish we were staying longer so I could go for a walk. For breakfast there was a range of choices and our Amercican breakfast was good.

It's a little outside of the city center so not great to meet tons of new people, but as a couple this was what we were looking for. Room was clean, but on our last day we found a huge dead cockroach next to our bed so no 100% for cleanliness. Really nice and helpful staff.

Relaxed atmosphere in a great location. There were a few times when it was a bit noisy but I'd be surprised if you found a place in the heart of the city that wasn't. Good times!

Clean place with friendly staff. Great location with cheap eating places, super market, bus stops and attractions of Guilin city just a walking distance away. There is a whole street of small and cheap Chinese restaurants across the road in a by-lane running parallel to Zhongshan middle road. The Yangshuo cruise ticket was bought at the hostel for RMB 395 with English speaking guide and buffet lunch - but the cruise didn't require much explaining and lunch wasn't that great.

Alles okay.

The only advise I have is to put an aircon in the twin bed room as well. As we had a joining double bed room which had aircon was great. But the twin room which is part of the double bed room was really hot! Part owner Robert had excellent edvise on transport/sights etc Absolutely worth visiting the sights in Yangshuo and Longji-Longsheng he recommended!

We arrived late, at 2 am. The staff was very considerate and left us a note and the key to the room, saying that we could check in the next day. The room was a little bit damp but comfortable enough.
