Hello my friends at Ming Palace. I can't tell you how much my daughter and me enjoyed our stay. We really appreciated your flexibility and patience in helping us deal with late money exchange issues and our running off for a wonderful day's tour of the Dragon Ridgeback Rice Mountains. The accommodations were wonderful as well as your hospitality...easily helping with our unexpected additional nights stay.Thank you again, your quaint and comfortable hostile gets high recommendations from us.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are spaceous with clean and modern bathrooms! The lounge at the entrance is also very convienent and you can also get delicious western breakfasts (toast, muesli, etc.). All in all the hostel has a nice atmosphere, is totally recommendable and worth in money. I´d definetely stay there again ;)

In general it's a great hostel to stay at! Everything was great, stuff is very friendly, they even went out to have dinner with us. They have a nice cafe downstairs serving Chinese and Western food. The only problem was that wifi wasn't working sometimes. I stayed on the 5th floor and I had to go downstairs to connect the net a few times. But all in all I highly recommend this hostel.

Handy to town, attractions and had good range of tour available. Room was excellent and in particular the shower was great-above the normal standard for hostels. Lounge/bar/restaurant was comfortable and relaxing. The food was really nice, pizzas great! Prices pretty reasonable.

Hostel has a cool staff but it is a bit far from the center though.

We are happy to know you enjoy your stay in our hostel. Actually, we located in the center of the city, It takes only 5mins to the famous pedestrian street, and 15mins to the elephant trunk hill which is the landmark of Guilin, The solitary beauty peak and Jingjiang Palace,one of the 5 star scenic spot in Guilin which justnext to our hostel.Good luck to your future journey.

The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful and helped me make the best of my time in Guilin. I stayed in a dorm room and thought that the standard of the ensuite bathroom was good. My only recommendations would be that for me, the food was below the standard I usually find in a hostel eating place. For example the quality of the pizza base was awful and made the pizza a disappointment and salad cream does NOT go on a fruit salad! However, overall this was an excellent place to stay.

This hostel is the best one so far in China! The staff is amazing and really funny. We arrived quite late at the hostel and the restaurant was already closed, however the made us terrific fried rice. Moreover the restaurant is great, very good food. The location is awesome next to the ming palace (must-see). The rooms are great, we even had a bath. The staff also assisted us to e.g. book bus tickets or provided us with information. Keep on smiling girls!
