This was probably one of the most amazing hostels I've stayed at so far! The staff is friendly, speaks excellent English and is really helpful wiwth whatever you ask them for (tickets, translations etc.). The rooms are also really clean and my single room was sgnificantly bigger than in any other hostel I've been to. (huge bed, little tea table, nicefurniture etc.) The offered tours and tickets are cheaper than at the ticket counters at the sightseeing points. I totally recommend this hostel!
Very good hostel, good location. Near the ming palace and the li river. They can also book tours. Girls from the staff are very cool, good english speakers (loved the dumpling party!). Clean, nice atmosphere.
I was pleased that it was located near the Beauty Solitary Park and the walking street area. The restaurant there provided good meals.
Great food, free washing machine was a bonus and the staff were great. Best hostel in china that we experienced!
The staff at Ming Palace are incredibly accommodating and helpful.They are quick to help with trip ideas or to give you tips on the best places to go or how to get there. The rooms are plain but clean with nice showers and comfortable beds. It was a pleasure to stay here!
The Ming Palace was a great place to stay at considering the price, the dorm I've got and the location (near Li River, a few parks, pedestrian shopping street, etc). Big size of bed, toilet and shower in the dorm of 4. There is a 100Y room key deposit that you get back at check-out - which is not specified when booking (FYI). Wi-Fi was poor and the hostel advertised access to a VPN but it never worked during my 4 nights stay. Food was okay/good. I would recommend this hostel to friends ! :)

Single rooms are spacious, clean and modern. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
really good staff, friendly and helpful. Should have a cheaper beer. Great lunch and dinner, breakfast is kind of small. add burgers to the menu.
I highly recommend this hostel. The staff is very friendly (especially Angela, she made us feel right at home!) and the rooms are nice. We were misinformed about the Guilin airport shuttle by one of the staff members so make sure to triple-check any information you get.
Really liked this place and would have loved to have stayed more than just one night. Other than being a little difficult to find the hostel was one of the best I've stayed at. Big lockers, nice atmosphere & friendly staff, really no complaints. If you're looking for a nice place in Guilin I would definitely recommend
Cleanest hostel I've stayed in, in China...especially the bathrooms, there was none of that mouldy smell most of the Chinese hostel shower drains give off. I especially liked the free pot of green tea they offer you, it was a nice little touch!
It was very convenient with good amenities...breakfast and lunch were good...loved the music accompanying our meals.
Totally loved the friendly atmosphere of this place! I'm sure it's rocking in the height of the season but at least we could have free reign of the free pool, pretty much had the 4th floor outside area to ourselves. The area up there is super chilled. No issues when there, needed some bags, just asked. Simple and fast. Information on excursions is very up to date on the front desk, with some of the better prices I've seen in GuiLin and Yangshou. But no one was pushing.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in China. It's centraly located, they have good and cheap food, you have clean toilet and lockers in the room, free washing machine, super nice and helpful stuff! Thanks for everything!
Loved this hostel!! the staff are very nice and warm, they help me a lot!! And the food in the restaurant was really good!! I totally recommend this hostel to all the travelers!
It's nice place with good environment, and staff there is very nice , give very good proposal for visiting, we enjoy stay there

. 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.
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.
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.
