Like to suggest having a electrical kettle and TV in the room. These 2 items are welcome by all guest. I would not mind to be charge a small RMB for these facilities.


Near the Pedestrian Min Sheng Road and for food Paradise lover, just within walking distance to Zhong Shan Road.


A good one night stay at this hostel. Friendly, clean and cheap. Can't ask more.

Hey,Jack.I am glad that u enjoy ur stay here.Wish u a good trip.:)


We stayed in the double bed ensuite room. The room was very spacious with a nice soft bed and good shower. The staff helped us arrange our Vietnam VISA, which was very handy. Their english could be better though. The downside of the hostel was that there was no breakfast or dinner available. We couldn't even heat up our bought food because they didn't claim to have a microwave, which I doubt.

I was a little distracted by the drops that where keep coming from the sealing, because the floor got really slippery. Also the bar street that one of the staffmembers recommended to us was not at all in a travellers price range and consisted out of clubs not bars. I spent a lot of time in the huge hostellobby, either infront of the TV (chose from the big movie-menue) or played pool or just sat around with other travellers. I would definitly go there again, a really nice and comfortable hoste


Very nice clean hostel, with great common area / bar. Location is right next to major shopping location and only a short taxi from train (5 min). Staff were as helpful as could be but not brilliant English speakers. Main downside was it was a very noisy room and needed ear plugs to sleep as windows weren't able to shut properly. Keiran


We stayed here twice - the first time everything was fine. The second time was at Chinese New Year - we got to our room, but had no towels, so we asked at reception - they said there should be some in the room - there wasn't. So we went back again and this time they said it wasn't included in the room rate. So we asked if we could hire some, but they said no. Rooms are nice and well furnished - the common area/bar is cool, but lacks atmosphere.


This hostel is wonderful. The staff is very good at helping you with Vietnam visas and transport to Vietnam as well as running a friendly, environmentally-conscious hostel.


It seemed to be more or less a stop-over-hostel for all those going to Vietnam etc. Staff seems specialised on Visa issues but less on others... Really nice rooms and 24h reception is pretty cool.




Very smart room. Comfortable and clean. Near to shops and restaurants and fast food street (turn left from the hostel) You can take bus 76 from langdong bus station to Minzu gong he and the hostel is a short walk from there

Good common area. Cheap local beer. Nice bar. Nice pool table. I don't recommend eating at the restaurant though, unless you enjoy explosive diarrhea.


i would stay there again. the staff was very friendly and helpfull, everything neccesary is very near. it´s not to far to walk from the train- or busstation, just difficult to find the right way because of the center is under construction for the new underground.


The free laundry was an added bonus, and they made getting a Vietnam visa quite easy. There are no lockers in the dorms which was the only downside.


A bit tricky to find due to road works but a local and a member of staff who was randomly passing showed us the way. The hostel is nice and clean but had few quests when we stayed so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. There is a free pool table though.


This is a very nice hostel and I am surprised that they are environmentalists. Especially the tour tips are great, as they just tell you how to get there hassle free and cheap by public transport. The bookexchange is amazing and the staff is always friendly and helpfull. They know their city!


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!

Thx for sharing your experience with us.We are always trying to provide our guest a comfortable evironment after a long trip.wish u a good trip in china:)


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.
