This Green Forest has nothing to do with the one from Yangshuo. The common area is nice but the staff is not very friendly. I am really afraid of cats and they had one in the common area which was playing around, I was watching a movie and I couldnt move because of the cat, I asked them to take the cat out of there and 2 mins after it was back, I had to leave and stay in my room. Besides, we paid for the best room: it was old, w/bad shower, smelled a LOT like deep-fried food... Bad experience!
This was the 2nd time I stayed here. Had a budget twin room that was excellent value for money. Also, the staff here was amazing when I lost my wallet (and passport) on a tour bus. They helped me communicate with the tour company and bus driver and gave me directions on how to hopefully retrieve my wallet in the middle of the night. A super helpful girl from the staff actually volunteered to go with me on a crazy expedition to find the bus and my belongings! Thanks so much! Saved my vacation!
The staff was super friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the free washer was amazing.
Nice hostel. I saw two different 4 bedrooms:one was really big, while the other one was very small.The only problem was a very loud music during the night. Probably there is a club next to the hostel. The stuff is nice. In the lobby or living room there are tables and sofa but we didn't meet other people. The hostel atmosphere is a little bit missing. But it's ok for few days.(And it's really cheap!)
It was a family-friendly and community-centered hostel. If you are homesick for a light, western breakfast, then look no further. Splurging on a private room is worth the money in this hostel.
Awesome guys, keep on going! And teach more people how to play Majong :)
Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Had breakfast there it was good.

Really enjoyed our stay, thank you! Sometimes a little noisy at night, but generally very comfortable.
Nice place, good location, helpful staff
Staff in particular was very helpful and spoke great English.
This is simply a great hostel. Cheap, friendly staff, good food, good location, good WIFI, etc... The only improvement they need are the beds in the dorms. They make a lot of noise when you move. Besides that: top choice!
We enjoyed our stay at Green Forest. It was in a good location, had good facilities, comfortable beds, helpful staff and plenty of tour options. We'd definitely recommend it.
Lovely place is a great location. Got a room upgrade and the place had a huge window and was super comfy bed. Free laundry, food is a little bit pricey - you're paying the tourist price. I didn't try it but I'm sure it would taste good. They have good value tours and helpful staff. Easy to recommend this place
Fantastic people and hostel facilities. Thanks for the included water and laundry.
Nice place to stay in Guilin with very friendly and helpful staff who taught us how to play the Mahjong which was good fun. Also, nice cozy common area where you can meet other travellers. Would stay here again.
This was the best hostel we stayed in on our trip to Beijing, Chengdu, Guilin and Yangshuo. The staff are friendly and speak good english. The room was lovely with a nice view of the river. It is a pity that we could only stay here for 1 night. We took one of their day tours to bamboo rafting and got dropped off in Yangshuo.

it was great hostel! a very relaxed place and the people were very helpfull. the beds were nice and soft, the room was spacious and the bathroom was so clean! the food is farely cheap compared to other hostels.
Had a brilliant stay here. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Our room was big and clean. The noise of the KTV singers was loud but they stop quite early and we were usually out late so they never bothered us. It's location is great and we were able to walk everywhere or get the bus from the station across the road. The Li River Bamboo raft tour they organise was great too.
Great place to stay. Nice big bunk beds Close to everything, train and bus station and sights.
Excellent location n easy to find from the bus station.. Within walking distance to eating places , shopping and nearby elephant tusk hill n twin pagoda. Strongly recommend. Only complaint is taxi to airport came 30 minutes late but not the hostel's fault.
