It was a great hostel with a very good location. The staff was awesome and offered a city walk, ronny showed us around and had many good stories to tell about China. The rooms were light and spacious. The common room had good entertainment( a wii as well! ) and they offer good food. The computers were not working properly, the rest was very good :)
I really enjoyed my stay here and this hostel ,The staff were amazing, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offering was also really good and affordable.I will definitely stay here again.
Nice little hostel with chilled atmosphere. Quite quiet there.
Great Hostel, good location (very close to bus /train station), nice staff, great hostel bar/café, lots of information. I booked a dorm room but got put in a nice 4-bed-room. I'd definitely stay there again.
The hostel is very beautiful and the staff are very helpful , this is the best hostel in china !
I stayed there with two friends in a 4 bed room, which didn´t have a window, but the rest was fine. We really enjoyed our stay there because the staff is so so friendly and helpful. In the common room you feel like you are in your living room, there is such a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Moreover, you can get there cheap drinks and delicious chinese (and western) food. Would definitely stay there again!
Friendly staff, great location. It is by the bus station and by the river.
Green Forest Guilin was great! The staff was extremely helpful in answering all questions about Guilin and what to book for tours and day trips, and they couldn't have been nicer people. They threw a big Chinese New Year party that was a lot of fun, and I extended my stay in Guilin 5 extra days, in part because I enjoyed my stay at Green Forest so much. I can't wait to go back!

Great fun place to stay! The beds and rooms are very clean. Good atmosphere. Super close to the train and bus station. I actually came back here to stay another night on our way back from Yangshuo.
A really friendly and helpful hostel. Very accommodating, Dorms spacious enough and beds big! Laundry free and a comfortable communal area. Hostel were happy to store our belongings whilst we went to another area for a week - even without a future booking. Staff happy to let you practice Chinese and equally they speak good English. Location is by a nice part of the river. Would definitely stay again.
This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in! For me having a friendly staff that can speak English is really important .Nice atmosphere they have. My room and bedding were very clean. I enjoyed my stay very much and will surely come again!
Staffs are friendly and very helpful.
Definitely the best hostel I have ever been in China! Great staff with good English . They teach us how to play majiong was lots of fun.
Hostel is hidden from the main road but nice surprise when we found it. Very friendky staff willing to help and good english:)! Minimalist room but definitely fair for the price.
It s a good hostel to stop in Guilin to go to the rice fields and Li River! I stayed in 4 bed room - without window, but enough space! It s worth the money! The location is not that central, but near to the bus station(s). You can easily walk to most of the spots!
Staff were really helpful, despite me bombarding them with questions about where to go. Nice hostel

Good Breakfast at the cafe. Close to rail and train stations. Close to a lot of amenities. A little far to walk to the main sights.
Everyone who works there was so polite and helpful! The room I stayed in was quiet so I have no complaints about noise from the locals playing zhoupai(sp?) Downstairs. They cleaned the room everyday and gave us TP. The food is good but a bit expensive compared to food down the street which green forest is happy to direct you to! They also helped me plan my next trip to Fujian and so on! I reccomend this place for the cute location near the water and city center! Thank you!
We only stayed here for about 12 hours but it was great for our purpose! We got a late flight out from Shanghai to Guilin, arrived at past midnight, and the taxi man that the hostel had arranged for us was still waiting at the airport with a sign for us, even though, due to delays, we were on the cusp of being 90 mins late!! When we got to the hostel, we had to wake up the man to let us in, but all was good and he gave us quick advice on booking the next morning's bamboo rafting to Yangshou!
The place is ok. Bathroom kind of smelly but still clean enough to use. Can't tell much about location as I only stayed there to book some tours which were great. Food was only ok.
