Latest Review

" Lovely, friendly hostel, very kind, helpful staff with great English. Their food was delicious. The river walk into Yangshuo town (15 mins) is very beautiful. Take the hostel business card with you as the taxi drivers don't know where it is. We stayed with our 3 kids under 12 so can fully recommend it for a family. It was our first proper stop in China & the Cosy Garden was a safe, western friendly place to find our feet & confidence to tackle the rest of the country! "

Things to Note

Please note that we encourage social interaction as much as we can, however we are not a heavy drinking, loud party place as there are plenty of places like that in town just a short bike ride away if you like. We choose our location in this village to offer people a calm, fun and relaxed environment where everyone gets a chance for a good night sleep and start the day with the batteries fully charged!
