I loved it! Room was bright, big And clean, staff superhelpful and nice. Try it!
basically amazing, with wonderful views and good location. The staff tired to be helpful, and most taxi drivers seemed to know where 'This Old Place' was!
This Old Place is a nice, comfortable and clean hostel. Not all of the staff spoke good English, but they were usually quit helpful. The boat tour I booked through the hostel was lovely. The roof terrace and lounge are such nice places to relax and the breakfast is a great deal! I would have liked it if there was soap in the bathrooms to wash your hands. I would stay here again!
This Hostel is really recommendable if you plan to stay in Guilin. The Hostel organises trips and the staff can speak english very well. They offer quite good western Breakfast for 20RMB which consists out of tea/coffee, orange juice, fruits, toast, egg and ham. The Location is close to the city center and you can reach all main sights in Guilin very fast. The smell in the rooms is not very good, but for only staying the night insight it is okay.
The hostel is okay, but I didn't like Guilin, so we stayed just one night

James and fellow staff were very helpful and friendly, they took good care of us and our belongings. Enjoyed out time there, thank you.
This hostel is in a great locarion. The tours they offer are good and the staff is nice and helpful. Everything is extremely clean which is nice and the dorm room I stayed in was really comfortable. Food and drinks at the bar are very reasonably priced. It would be nice if there was soap in the bathrooms to wash your hands. I would stay here again!
Great staff who helped with all our questions. Particularly loved the fruit for sale at reception - this was a welcome touch! Fabulous location on the lake, within walking distance to everything. Would recommend this hostel highly!
I enjoyed meeting people from other countries and was thankful the staff was so friendly and supportive. I recommend this youth hostel
This place was good. No problems here
Hostel very clean , nice staff , good location. Good value for money. Highly recommended.
The location next to the lake was very lovely. In the application form you could chose a girls-room - for travelling alone this was a good reason not to stay in a single room, so thanks for this opportunity. The staff was very friendly and helped me a lot. Also they offering some nice day-trips for the travellers - maybe it would be nice to apply for them by e-mail some days before the stay so that you can plan your stay better.
More like a hotel above the common area floor, but fantastic hostel. Great open roof for drinking beers and looking over the city, awesome location, helpful staff, good food. Would stay again.
Great location at the lake. Roof top terrace with nice view. comfortable lounge for chillout and billiard-game. bus connection to all tourist destinations 10 minutes walking distance. Description is wrong. when coming by bus or train, you have to get off the 5 or 6 stop (not 4 or 5). Anyway its the stop after the red bridge.
Nice place. Walking distance to downtown Guilin.
Good to be able to organise day trips and tours.
A short and pleasent stay with my Mom, Perfect location just near the most beautiful part of the lake, but in a quite one-way road, and a lake view from the window. We had special requests and all was arranged successfully by the friendly stuff !!! Close to the happy activities at night in the center. They gave us some good advices, especially for the tour in the rice-terrace, not an organized tour but exact instruction for an independent and much nicer one.
Was very happy staying here. Location great. Would like more food on offer but the sandwiches were great.
A very nice youth hostel! We had a pleasant stay in our very lovely and clean room. Staff is friendly and helpful and speaks good english. Location ist not far from center (5-10 min by foot) and next to the beautiful lakes of Guilin. Washing machine and dryer available, rooftop terrace to dry clothes and enjoy the beautiful view. The hostel offers trips to the Longji rice terraces - definitely a must see, but our driver didn`t speak any english. Try the hostels pizza! :-)
