I really enjoyed staying here. Location is perfect - walkable to the popular attractions. Staff is more than helpful and friendly and arranged airport taxi for me. They offer a complimentary pot of Jasmine tea, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Clean, comfortable room. Excellent wifi connection in the lounge, but none in the rooms.
This is a very nice hostel. Staff speaks good english and is very helpful. Dorms are large and clean, they offer laundry service and help with tour/tickets bookings. If you do laundry though, make sure you have at least 1 or 2 days to let it dry because Guilin is very humid and clothes don't dry on the roof. Public transport is close and convenient to reach both train stations and both bus stations and the location is a bit outside the main tourist crush, so its quiet and more local.
This is my second time stayed in the hostel, I like it very much.
everything in this hostel is good, comfortable bed in the mix dorm, and I made new friends during staying there, and we shared our travel experience. The staff there were very friendly and help me a lot, I really enjoy staying there!
Staff helpful answering questions on use of subway, Close to the waking street and Li river, recommended!!!!
Location is perfect. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would also recommend the restaurant. The local beer duck was excellent. And 1 big plus: The hostel offer free laundry.
The staff is very helpful, friendly and they take time to help and advise or even have a little chat. I would stay here again.

the hostel is very nice and the stuff was the best i meet in china but the cleaning was not very good in the room but it was ok in the common area . The better things were the tours, they very good organized and not too expensive, i suggest to attend both the rice terraces and li river cruise very worth it!!!
Overall I was very pleased with my one night at the Palace... rooms and facility were clean. The staff was welcoming and competent. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to anyone.
I had a great stay and employees were very kind! I've got useful information througout my stay to help me plan my trip in Guilin. Thanks!
The staff were very courteous and helpful; two thumbs up! Incomplete renovation. Slight mold issue. I am not sure what is the theme of the décor.

Great hostel!! The reception girl was super nice and help us out with all we needed. The hostel was very clean and the rooms were huge. Perfect location. If I come back to Guilin def. I'll stay here again.
Loved this hostel! Great area, staff @ reception were super helpful and helped me plan my trip. Great value rooms. Only negative was the chef, he was super lazy. He spent all day sleeping on the guest sofas and would always make excuses as to why he couldn't cook the food your order. One morning he said that the American breakfast was finished. It was 7.50am, less than an hour after the restaurant had opened lol
the staff here is absolutely delightful! Angela and Nikki are the most helpful receptionists one can desire ! nice rooms and clean, and i met lovely people to hang out with! only downside the cook= he is bloody lazy and says there a re no ingredients but its not true! I have seen him cooking what I ordered for other people, after saying he couldnt do it! Happened to me 3 times!
Aircon was terrible and wifi was useless. Probably because the TV seems to be on most of the time streaming football...
Although the room was very clean, I saw a cockroach walking the side of the reception desk one evening.
I had a nice time staying at Ming Palace hostel, because of the very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bed, good location.
The hostel was a good location for the short trip to Guilin. Most important sights could be reached in walking distance and the price was good for what you got. However, more showers or toilets would've been nicer as each floor just had one toilet and one shower which was in one room. The staff was very nice and helpful and their English was very good as well.
