Perhaps one of my best hostel experience. The combination of both great room setup and personal service helped me feel home right away. The bedding, just simply amazing, more comfortable than I can possibly imagine (I want to bring them home!). Good location and easy snacking on local food. Will come back and definitely will recommend to everyone.

We had made a booking by Hostelworld and shortly they contacted us to tell that the real price was higher because the national chinese holiday, so finally the room was more expensive that we expected first. Anyway, I understand that is a very complicated season in China. Room (superior double bed) was awesome, extremly clean, modern and very spacious, as well as the bathroom. Very nice and helpful staff, they booked for us in advance the rice terraces tour, otherwise we probably couldn't do it.

We loved Ming Palace! The only issue we had was we originally booked a dorm room on HostelWorld, but the hostel called us shortly after to say they did not actually have any dorm room spaces available. Although we ended up staying in a considerably more expensive single room with a double bed, it was a beautiful, clean, comfortable room. The food at the restaurant is delicious and cheap, and staff was very helpful with booking us tours.

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.

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.
