The staff r extremely helpful, nice n friendly. Location wise; its just 5 minutes walking distance to the bank of china, bus n train station, and other stuff. If u r a muslim, there r around 8 halal restaurants and a mosque within 300m radius from the hostel.
Some staff very friendly - girl on bar and reception man. Others completely rude and unhelpful, particularly regarding information about sights etc. Hostel looks nothing like the pictures- much more run down. Overall an ok experience and good value for what we paid. A lot of noise coming from outside both early morning and late night. Bathroom weird layout - shower right beside toilet and no shower curtain meaning everything got soaked after shower and drain was blocked so took ages to drain.
Felt like the hostel belong to the staff not the guests.
Good place. We arrived at 1:30 am, and staff were there at the reception. Fantastic staff, really encourage guests to be social, made my trip to BeiJing so much better.. Very welcoming and helping! Rooms are clean and quiet, Would definitely stay again.
Very near the bus station and easy access to pedesterian road just on foot.
Very nice hostel well located (5 min walking to the bus station to go to Yangshuo, Rice terraces etc...). Staff is nice and welcoming, rooms are spacious enough and almost clean. Really good atmosphere of an international hostel, and great restaurant to eat.
Nice common areas, very nice location next to river and just a few minutes walk from major bus and train stations. Room sparse but clean and comfortable, hostel itself is quite but a workshop/mechanics downstairs created some irritating night-time noise in my particular room. Staff extremely helpful and well informed. Nice range of postcards on sale!
This place is fantastic!!!! The common area is the best we have seen in 3 months in China, with a nice atmosphere, foosball table, postcards for sale (and they will sell you stamps and post them as well) and coffee/breakfast/wifi etc. The staff is also really helpful with offering to check your train, tell you what to see and how to work out travel to Longji Terraces or further abroad. It is an easy walk from the main bus station or train station. Rooms are fine, normal chinese hotel type.
The staff were very helpful and quick in responding to queries. The room was cosy and clean. Great atmosphere and fantastic place to stay.
The location is very nice, rooms are small but clean, and we really enjoyed the welcoming . The girl at the reception was very helpful :)

Had an awesome stay here , the location is perfect plus the staff were really fun and friendly which made out stay enjoyable. I will definitely come back here if I'm back in Guilin.
My friends and I only stayed for the night but our room was great - very clean and air con provided which was ideal! The owner was so lovely and seemed genuinely pleased to have us which was really nice! Overall I would definitely recommend this place or stay here again.
It is the best hostel I stayed so far,the staff helped me a lot about the tour even i booked outside.They take care of everyone incase you meet some kind of scams.so happy with the staff and the room.I booked tour with the angency as well as the hotel,otherwise,I will stay here longer!!
Atmosphere is nice and calm but not like very happy. Staff is a family and really nice and helpful and good English. Downside were the cockroaches in my room and the bad wifi.
The staff of the hostel was very nice and helpful, especially while figuring out where to go for guilin rice noodles or a Classical Chinese massage. Thank you very much for all the good advices and ideas what to do and where to go to.
Great place, but a little different standard than the "Traveling With" hostels in Xi'an and Yangshuo. It's still an amazing price for what you get. Really close to the bus station, and lots of places to eat fairly close. They also upgraded us to a riverview room at no cost, which was great, and the staff were very helpful booking tours and for helping us explore Guilin.
Friendly but somewhat incompetent staff that makes commission on the tours they sell. If you're game to utilize your Mandarin, then set out on your own -- it'll work out to be about 30% cheaper than the hostel's offerings. Faulty outlets and shoddy bathrooms were standard here. Don't expect the lobby to have the AC on after a day of trekking in the humidity. Value for money seems about right, but you can definitely do better in China.
I'm really satisfied with this hostel. Not only because its very clean but also the staff is very helpful. I got the nice room with a affordable price. Moreover, the location which located near train/bus Station and several interesting places makes me easier to discover GuiLin.
The hostel itself was clean and comfortable, and had a warm, fun atmosphere. Would definitely stay there again! Thanks!
I really like staying here. The staff were really helpful and booked our return tickets to Shanghai. We booked a tour to go to the Liriver and it was very good.
