This hostel has character and the staff were really friendly. Would have liked clearer instructions on how to get to the rice terraces and the li river, but we made it there and had fun with both! Guilin is awesome and so is this hostel!

The hostel is one of the best in China I have ever tried. I booked 2 beds in a mixed dorm, the beds were soft and comfy, the room really warm, with a lot of places to put your stuff, the bathroom warm, with a lot of space, free shampoo and saop, really great. The Hostel is really central and it is easy to go on foot to a lof of intersting places in guilin. The staff is really lovely, hey were really helpfull with traveling trip. I would definetely go back there.

I booked a single room and they put me in a double because they had extra rooms, so that was nice. The hot shower worked perfectly, which is something one doesn't see in China that often; so did the air conditioning too. The room was cozy and the staff nice. The only problem is that the neighbors were smoking, which is not a problem of the hostel per se, of course.

The hostel located in a quiet street, but a walking distance from most attractions in town. The staff is super friendly and were eager to help me with any question or request i had. The common area and the bar had a nice atmosphere. Air condition inside the room is a big bonus if you come in the winter. The light from the bathroom inside the room is a bit strong at night, so a curtain would be nice

The staff were very friendly. I felt very welcomed the whole tile that I was there. The room was extremely clean. My only gripe would be that there were not more western guests to mingle with. I guess this is to be expected though, it is china after all. Very good hostel for the money. You won't be dissappointed.

The Ming Palace Hostel is conveniently located in the central part of Guilin. It's location is in a very quiet neighborhood close to the Ming Palace. Food is good and they offer many of the usual tours at slightly reduced prices. The best thing about this hostel is its staff. They are very helpful and knowledgeable. They helped me arrange a special van to take me and my bike to the airport. Thanks to them I had a smooth departure to Beijing. Highly recommend this hostel

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.

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!!!

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.
