Property Information:

The Cosy Garden is everything you had expect from its namesake, a warm welcome and a cosy getaway to relax from the stresses and chaos of the big Chinese cities. Why not swap the neon lights of West Street for the warm glow of fire flies and the town's disco music for the smoothing sounds of frogs as you enjoy the true Chinese countryside in its timeless glory. Together with Carpe Diem we are the 2 countryside hostels near the center with a very beautiful walk along the Li-river right into Yangshuo’s entertainment area.

The Cosy Garden offers:

- Beautiful and relaxing environment with stunning views out over the paddy fields of the village
- Cultural stay amongst the local villagers
- Easy access to the center, 15-20min Li-river walk or just a 7 min bike ride with free bikes after 2.00pm.
- Front terrace with pool-table and a one-stop reception/tours desk/bar area with espresso coffees, wines and Belgian Beers.
- A comfy TV- lounge filled with bean bags and sofas where laziness is encouraged.
- Bright rooms with comfy beds, private bathrooms with rain shower & western toilets.
- Maximum security with smart card access to the front door and rooms with 24hrs security surveillance and guard.

Please do note:

Whilst close to the center, our B&B is not really suitable for people who wish to party in town every night. Our staff works very hard to have a very respectful and peaceful vibe without the drunken atmosphere offered elsewhere. Our goal is to make you feel like at home and will provide you with a great social atmosphere, as well as giving you the opportunity to have a good sleep after a busy day of sightseeing. This is a social hostel however not a party place. There are no clubs in our village so you can get a good night sleep. For a more active night try Carpe Diem with its cosy deck and lounge bar just 50m further down the road.

Although the road to our village is very popular with locals to enjoy their nightly walk and stretches, please take note that the last part of the road has no street lights and can be quite dark at new moon. We do have torches or head lights available for you and while the walk is perfectly safe many will enjoy the great local experience on the way back for a great shower and a good night sleep!

Pick-ups from bus station, now moved outside of Yangshuo are worth 20Y.

    We were very happy we decided to stay out of town to avoid the crowds and noise. Beautiful 20 min walk to town. Rooms are good. Great large communal kitchen for hanging out as well as meals. Free cook-yourself breakfast with a good variety, available all morning (until 11 AM). Staff is helpful and full of advice, without pressuring you.We used the travel agent services for purchasing our bus tickets, cave tour, bamboo raft tour, and cooking school; the prices were good and it was so convenient.

Things to Note

For guests who book from this March, we will provide free breakfast. 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!
