The hostel was in a great location and easy to find, all the staff were helpful and seemed very friendly. We enjoyed our time in Guilin, we just wish all the things to see and do weren't so expensive as we missed out on a lot because of this.

The room had no window, very damp and mold on the walls and ceiling. I stayed 2 nights, no hot water the 2nd night. Pillow smelled like urine...

A nice clean cheap hostel in a very central location. Everything you need for a Base in Guilin. However we were not informed about the construction work going on above the hostel which started very early so sleep was disrupted.

There isn't window in my room so the atmosphere was quite weird. The commun space was nice and the taff very helpful. This close to the bus station and the train station so it's east to go there.

Stayed one night in a 4 bedroom dorm. For 19 yuan it's probably the best value I've come across in China. Dorm was okay with good aircon but only had a cold shower. Staff were really helpful and waited up late for me when my flight from Shanghai was delayed and I didn't arrive until 2am. Breakfast was decent too. Location is within a ten min walk to the centre of Guilin.

Our room was 4 bed dorm, which had only window into a dark hallway, not great. That made room rather dark and definitely not bug enough for 4 people! Staff was not helpful but manager was nice in the morning refunded our money and we moved into a different hostel. Heard other rooms are better!

The hostel was in great location near the river and walking distance to the city center. The room was a bit moldy and had no windows. The lights were also pretty poor. Breakfast was nice.

I stayed in the dorm. Value for money cannot be beat. Don't expect a five star hotel. Location is perfect and so near the bus station you can walk no problem.

Really good place to relax and plan your trips to Dazhai, Xing Ping and Yangshuo. Staff was really helpful and their english is OK. We could leave our bagage in a safe locked place for free doing a 3 day trip to Dazhai. Laundry is free, you can use their washing machine and powder. Rooms were clean and the twin beds were quite big and soft. The location is good and transport is just round the corner. We highly recommend this one.

Planned on staying here for a week, but changed my mind. The girl at the reception desk was VERY friendly,and helpful in my travels both in and out of Guilin. She gave nice tips, and was always smiling. They even kept my bags safe for me when I was travelling somewhere else. The hostel offers breakfast and cocktails. Also you can buy cheap postcards which they will send for you. Nice hostel! One lesser thing was the bad lighting in the room though.. Lockers present in the room.

Nice place with a nice lounge. Enjoyed staying in and picking a movie. Staff were very friendly. Needs a lick of paint and good clean aside from that I would stay again.

Location was perfect, close to the train and bus station as well as to the city centre. The tours they offered were little expensive, and they told us the tour guide spoke English, but he hardly spoke any English. The staff was kinda lazy and it took us great efford to get them talking. The bar and common area were good.

This hostel was ok, It was clean enough and the dorm bed was comfortable. We had a bad experience with the bamboo tour, the girl at the counter told us that we had to come back from the tour by ourselves, and when we did, it was much longer than we expected. It took us like 4 hours and a lot of walking.The whole tour was a disaster. The shared space was great, with a tv, music and a restaurant, but there was always the family of the staff there, with a child. Not that great for the ambiance...
