The location and staff were lovely. The only major issue was that the entire ground floor was extremely cold on the colder days of my visit. Gaps in the walls of the dining area and wide open doors made the common spaces very chilly and uncomfortable.

I stayed in a private room, which was fine. Great to stay outside the town as it's a bit chaotic. Walkable in 15mins if necessary, though they have plenty of good bikes to zip into town. The staff are superb, the best I've come across in China. Very friendly and informative. I'd definitely recommend the Cosy Garden.

I really liked this place. The staff spoke excellent English, were able to sort out everything I asked about and the room was pleasant. The only major thing to be wary of is that it is a bit out of the way and the route back at night is pitch black.

This hostel is a good 20+ minute walk from the center of town, located in a quiet area with a few other hostels and great scenic views. The hostel felt secure and was quite clean. We were able to borrow bikes from the hostel for 10 RMB to travel into town, but two of the four bikes we ultimately borrowed broke while we rode them. The room itself was spacious with a nice view of the mountains and the hostel's outdoor patio. The beds are firm and the AC works.

The staff were so great! Love the location and the view from my room. Biking around that area was the best part of my trip.

Great hostel, the location and facilities were really nice. Close enough to town to be convenient yet far enough away to stay out of the noise and mass of people. Friendly and helpful staff, really enjoyed our stay!

Staff is great, location is beautiful. It's located in the countryside but it's an easy 5-10min. bike ride to town along the river when you want to shop. The "family room" has two twin beds in one room and a double bed in an adjoining room with 2 bathrooms (we thought we would get 2 bunk beds in a tiny room but this was way better!). We took advantage of the restaurant, rooftop deck, and patio at the Yangshuo Village Inn just across the road, which is also run by Tripper, the Belgian owner.

We loved staying at the Cosy Garden. We stayed here for 8 days. Shadow, Lynsey & Joyce were all very helpful with information about the area, coordinating activities & transport, and providing a pleasant atmosphere. The location is quiet & beautiful , yet only a 5 minute bike ride to town & the lively West Street. The rooms are clean and the beds comfy. Would recommend getting a room overlooking the garden. Is quieter than street side. The kitchen was great for breakfast each morning!

Staff was so friendly and very helpful with planning our next travel steps. Make-it-yourself breakfast for 20 yuan was really great, coffee was good, garden and hangout areas were very chill and inviting. Other travelers were nice. Lovely walk along the river into town a very manageable distance away and nice to be away from the blaring pop music. Good food When we ordered from the kitchen. Hope to stay again very soon!

Exuberantly friendly staff, who made us feel warm, welcomed, and comfortable. Excellent English skills across the board, too, which is not necessarily the case in Chinese hostels. Btw, definitely join the Friday night BBQs, though know that what is meant by "BBQ" is in fact shaokao (烧烤), not Southern American-style, smoked BBQ (ribs, pulled pork, etc.). Perhaps that's obvious, though I know a number of Westerners at the meal were surprised by grilled meats on a stick. Delicious, though!

The double rooms felt more like a hotel than a hostel - soft beds, nice view. Good location, but nearby construction was loud during the day. We walked there from the Northern bus station which was long and it wasn't always clear which road to follow. The staff helped us arrange our tickets for caves and bamboo rafts at good rates. The DIY breakfast was great and the kitchen was well equipped and quite clean. The bikes were in workable condition but poorly maintained.

Really liked this place - out of town and quiet. It was pretty cold whilst as it was heading into winter however there was a heater in the room. The bikes are pretty rough but so are everybody's unless you hire in town. The staff assistance is excellent and they are a real friendly bunch. They assisted with visas for Vietnam and we were grateful for the transfer from the airport. Our plane was delayed well over an hour and it was nice to be collected for the hour plus drive to Yangshou.

I liked the location just out of town but there was a lot of building going on in the area so some days could be noisy. The hostel itself was cheap, clean & the breakfast for 20yuan definitely worth it. The sister hostel (carpe diem) 2 minute walk away had a good restaurant, the rooms at Cozy corner looked better to me, much newer, having been refurbished recently. Nice area to sit outside & chill at Cozy & good staff that book tours at reception.
