. Wonderful stay at Ming Palace. The location and atmosphere were great, and the 3 person room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and had a lovely bathtub and shower. The staff was very accommodating, especially Betty, who helped us schedule a last minute tour to the Yunnan River Terraces at a reasonable price. Thanks, Betty. We loved meeting you, and thanks for showing us how to make dumplings. Would definitely stay there again and recommend this hostel to others.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar wasn't too expensive and had a lot of meals to choose from. The location is good, not too far from the train station and also fairly close to the river. Only problems were we were on a high floor and there is no lift, and there is only one washing machine which was constantly in use.

Thank you for your comment, we hoped you and Mario had a happy stay here. Yes we do have no lift, but we have a big balcony at 5th floor which you can see the Landscape, lots of people wanna spend time chatting, drinking and playing there, and it is close to the laundry, too. You knew you came here at the high season, especially the May day vacation, it is the most busy time in the year, we are full of guests which means our hostel is popular, so the washing machine and us are busy.

Great stay in the hostel. Bar/restaurant is great, friendly staff (thanks to Amy for her humour and; no, i did not yet go to the caves ;-) ). Location is great too. I would recommend.

Thank you for your comment. As far as I can see, you had a great time with Amy the lovely girl when you stayed here. She was very happy to know you remember her and you were happy because of her enthusiasm. It is pitty you haven't go to the Reed Fluet Caves which is so famous, maybe you can go next time when you come to Guilin again.

All the staff were really incredibly helpful and kind, especially in booking tours. I originally planned one night and booked a single. However due a small problem with window I got another room, a double for no extra and ended up staying two extra nights. The last night I hadn't booked and room was tight but a space was made available in dorm. Really accommodating. The private rooms are really nice and great art work hangs on the walls. Lobby and bar had great wifi, great music and great food.

Thank you for your staying. We really glad havd you here. Your first room was a little difficult to open the window, but now it is fixed. We always take care of our guest because we know people who travel from different countries are tired and not easy to get use to the new place for the different cutrule, so we would like to help you and make you guest feel easy. If there are any problems due to us, we truely would (will) solve them without charge.

Gorgeous hostel in a great area! The staff was very helpful and spoke great English! They made amazing food and coffee! Taxi drivers has some difficulty finding it, so make sure you print off the confirmation email with the directions for the driver that are written in Chinese. They have recently updated the entire hostel, so it is very nice. I will definitely stay here again!

We are very glad to receive this comment. We are trying to do better since the decoration has been finished. The bathroom is new with hairdryer, shampoo, some of them even have bathtubs; the balcony which you can see the senery at 5th floor is open now. You will find a new Ming Palace Internetional Youth Hostel here when you come here next time.

The location is good, many shops and restaurants, easy access to public transport, though it is very busy.I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hostel was adequately clean, secure, and that the staff were really friendly and willing to help. I would definitely recommend it to budget travelers who want a little comfort and security. I'd consider staying again myself too.

This was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Stayed there one night and then came back for a couple of more nights. The staff is very very helpful, the WC and showers clean and nice, the rooms good. Everything is simply perfect here. Its also easy to find, right next to the subway line. I can warmly recommend Ming Palace International.

Great place to stay. Booked a single room for two nights either side of a four day trip to Yangshuo. On the return leg the same single room wasn't available so was upgraded to a large family room at no extra cost. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, only too happy to help with local information and bookings. Highly recommended.
