The staff is so nice. I spent hours to ask them questions about China, chinese habits, what to do and not to do. I think so many people already ask them those questions, but still they were very nice with me and try to answer as precisely as possible. They offered me a delicious coffee in a warm and welcoming lobby. It was a very nice night.

Best party in China! First: You have to have a look at the amazing rooftop bar, it's the best view in Yangshuo. Second: You have to try Michael's death sentence Third: next morning you almost don't remember anything but you know it was the best party ever!

A perfect location for food choices and bars. Half a block from the river where market stalls are located. Scenery during the day and night is great viewing from the rooftop where a bar, pool table and dart board are located. I travelled during a quite time, though it's a beautiful town. The manager also helped me in booking a flight to Shanghai which made my travel very easy!

Fantastic hostel. The location was perfect, even though it was hard to find at first. The rooftop bar was a great place to hang out, and the view of the river was idyllic.

A comfortable hostel in a good location. Great value! The bar wasn't very popular for some reason, even though they played good music.

Loved Showbiz. Great location right off West Street. Rooms were clean and the rooftop view was gorgeous. Staff was helpful. Don't remember there being lockers in my room but that's not really a problem, my stuff was never in danger. Would stay there again.

Had an absolutely awesome time here. The staff, as usual with hostels, are the absolute highlight. Fen was hilarious and ensured everybody mixed and had fun. A few nights were somewhat quiet (low season) so spent the evenings talking, playing pool and sharing beers on the rooftop with a few new friends. On the weekend, it packed out and there was more of a party atmosphere. Great fun. Great location too.

This hostel was great. It was easy to meet other travelers and hang out on the rooftop bar, which has a great view. It is a blessing to have access to the washing machine, and you may be lucky enough to be right beside it on the 5th floor as well. Located at the heart of downtown so you're never to far away from the city-life action.

Roof Top Bar! Great location, great rooms, great staff, cozy and homely down in the lobby - Party all night on the roof top bar! Perfect hostel.

My second stay here. Great roof top bar and location. Close to the main street but far enough away to be quiet. Free laundry also and rooms are very clean. Only negative is the staff tend to hang out in the DVD corner making it difficult and awkward for paying guests to use. Overal a great place.

I booked two nights in Showbiz but ended up staying there for a whole week. The roof top bar has the best view, it would be great if you can wake up early to see sunrise there. The window of my dorm I stayed in also has a great view, you can just relax there being lazy. Girls there are very nice and helpful. Only sometimes there is no hot water for shower.

Honestly, the best hostel I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in a lot. Huge, clean room, v.comfortable...amazing rooftop bar with a stunning view. The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Fen on reception/bar! Right near the river and all bars, shops and resturants! Lots of great nights drinking and playing pool on that rooftop, and all for a great price! Best hostel in Yangshuo, will definitely be coming back!

This hostel was everything we could have asked for. The staff was very approachable and had excellent english. We stayed during the week and had the rooftop bar (and its amazing view) practically to ourselves. In the evenings the owner (?) would be up at the bar and was a great source of information and generally fun to chat with. Anything we wanted to do during the day they would organize in minutes. Cannot recommend Showbiz enough!

Nice little place. More like a hotel than a hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. Sadly there was absolutely no atmosphere and no one around. The rooftop bar was closed on our first night, then completely empty the next two nights. Generally a strange vibe about the place but felt sage ams secure so ok for a couple of nights.
