This hostel is located in the downtown of Nanning, also a snack street named water street just 10 meters away. the staff here is kind of good but not very zealous,a little cool. BUT in a word, it's worth to stay here for
Overall, it is a nice place to stay in if a person has good knees. I was surprised with the interior because the walkway from the ground floor to the hotel looks a little dodgy and dirty but when I got to the third floor, the entire feeling of the hostel changed. ;) Overall, I love this place!
The double bed private we had, was clean, spacious and with a nice view. The staff was helpful and polite. Free laundry option was very handy! No complaints really. We recommend it.
Excellent place, great location, helpful staff. Can get Vietnamese visa from the hostel for same price as if you went to the embassy yourself - saves a lot of hassle. Huge communal area with pool table, free laundry. Only recommendation is to get a bit water dispenser like they have everywhere in China in the communal area. They had a small kettle but if it's busy you'll wait a long time. Highly recommend this joint.
Good dorms and beds but no lockers which is a minus. Nice common area with pool table. Staff was okay, but the evening i stayed there they seemed more interested in entertaining each other then looking after the guests.
15min walk from trainstation, easy to find. Clean, nice, enough bathrooms/showers. Comfy beds. Food overpriced and plain but cheapish beer. Lots of ppl waiting around for Visas, easy and cheap to obtain through the hostel. Would recommend!
Have some organised activities, eg city walk, have maps available of city

It is quite clean. Good mattress and bedsheets. One thing I would suggest is to have more lockers.
Really nice and clean and chilled hostel. I used it while i was waiting for my visa for vietnam. They have a huge tv with loads of dvds so we passed the day on comfy couches relaxing.
One of the best Hostels we have ever stayed in. Modern and clean facilities, very friendly, good food and helpful staff. Although a little hard to find. Would def stay there again!
Great hostel. They processed our veitnamese visa within a day. Really nuce bar and food.
This hostel was very good we stayed here a few nights and they helped us get our visas sorted for vietnam
My friend and I stayed in a double-room (big and clean) in this very pleasant hostel, well-decorated with good facilities (bar, wifi, books...). The staff is very helpful and speaks good English. If you're heading to Viet Nam, they can help you get the visa. Close to the hostel, you'll find a food-market where you can have some delicious traditional food! Bus n°45 stops right outside the hostel and goes to the coach terminal through the city-center. I definitely recommend this hostel !
Some people working at the reception desk should learn a bit more English, it could avoid misunderstanding and wrong information - but it's nothing dramatic, would just be more convinient.
Really good value for money! Our room was very comfortable, we loved the bed, the bathroom was very clean, ... The staff was really friendly and there was a nice area where you could pool, watch tv, have a drink or exchange books. I would recommend it to anyone who stops in Nanning!
Dorm room was good and my bed was comfy. No lockers though! It's the most most expensive dorm I've stayed in in China. Staff are awesome really helpful. It's great that you can get your Vietnam visa here. Just give them your passport, two photos and 450 and it will be back the following night.
Staff was realy nice and helpful, speaking good english. Free laundry service is actually a nice option. Our room was clean and the bed was really comfy. But the corridors and the hallway is usually not nice and clean. Contrary to the horrible building entrance- which we encounter a rat and some bugs:( - the reception area is nice with large coaches and big tables.
Nice hostel with free movies to watch on the TV and comfy sofa downstairs! You can order food but there's not a lot of choice. There's a limited number of lockers too, so this would be a good improvement if lockers were available in the rooms! Staff are excellent however, an American lady was trying to find the correct medication which one reception girl rang and spoke to her mother (who's a doctor) and wrote down a translation for her! Shame there's not much in Nanning though.
The place is a bit hard to find if you have to rely on the description in the email confirmation. No chinese for taxi and there should be a zero at the beginning of the phone number. As it is now the taxi cannot read the English adress and you not the mobile. Also going by bus would need a better sketch for finding the pedestrian road (in the same email) Some hostels offer free coffee/tea a compromise could be 8 cny instead of 16. This is a more crucial point than you may understand.
really nice hostel and the staff and food is very good
