Average hostel, good for how much you pay. Nice and close to the train station tho, about a 10 minute walk!


La ubicacion es muy buena cerca de la estacion de bus y de tren. tambien esta cerca de las torres del sol y la luna y de la zona centro. Pero al mismo tiempo es tranquilo. El personal es muy amable y posiblemente es en el que el personal mejor informacion me ha dado y resuelto mis dudas, en mi viaje por china. La limpieza es correcta y las habitaciones estan bastante bien. La terraza al lado del rio es muy chula. Si vuelvo a Guilin me volvere a alojar en este albergue. 100% recomendable.


Room was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really good.


Well worth stay in a room for 4 with my family. Spacious and clean room & bathroom. However, the room is located at the building next to reception. Thus, not much interaction with others unless walk over to the reception where the lobby with computers, books and sofas located. No complains tho, as we were always out. The girls were extremely helpful with travel info and ticket/tour booking. It is around 20min walk to the town centre but very near the XiCheng Pedestrian Street and Elephant Hill.


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.


Die Betten waren sauber, aber der Duschvorhang war schimmlig, im Bad waren fremde Haare an der Wand und Müll vom Vorgänger befand sich hinter der Gardine und unterm Bett. Trotzdem war der gesamte Aufenhalt ok und das Personal ist wirklich super !!!!

Encantador...recomendable 100%...


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.
