The staff are quite friendly. If you like to transfer to train or coach, it is a good choice. But it needs to improve its management, the staff can mix up the girl's dorm with mix dormt,they get it right soon.

My opinion of HowFlowers was very poor apon first arriving. The hostel is a little run down. The dorm rooms are uncomfortable. And the bathroom situation isn't very fun. But then we ran into a huge problem with our train tickets. A member of the staff stayed up with me until 3 am figuring out a solution to our problem. HowFlowers' facilities might be less than average, but their staff more than made up for it. I have never stayed somewhere with such kind staff.

I was looking for a place to stay while passing through guilin. What can I say it served the purpose and the location is convenient. Still, the rooms are somewhat old and not nicely furnished. Staff was friendly and I couldnt complain about the service delievered for the money I paid.

First night we got a kind of a smelly room, however second and third night we replaced it for a much better one located on one of the top floors with a nice terrace. Very home-like relaxed feeling overall, the staff was EXTREMLY helpful (provided directions and wrote a note in Chinese for us that we used when buying tickets at the railway station). Plus they make the best coffee ever.

The way to the hostel entry ist a little bit complicated, but there are signs everywhere. Staff ist very helpful, they booked the bus to the riceterrasses for us. We slept there and returned a day later for another Night in How Flowers. We let our Baggage in the Baggage-Room witch is closed with a key from the desk.

Great little hostel! Friendly and helpful staff. Internet is a bit slow! No directions provided from the bus station! If arriving there head down towards the main street past all the taxis and turn right (South) cross the road and head towards the train station, go past the first home inn (there are two) and keep going until you come to the second one which is across from train station. Follow hostels directions from there!
