I came into my room and saw a 7cm long cockroach ... The staff didn't really want to help me with my trip plan - difficult thing when one doesn't speak Mandarin ... Go to Wanda Hostel, that's a good place to stay in Guilin! The girls are angels!
Really good location and a very nice place to stay.
A lovely comfortable hostel, although a little quiet. Offers great deals on tours (in particular the bamboo raft ride to Xingping) The wifi wasn't great in the rooms and on the last day the wifi was not working at all which meant that we couldn't book our next hostel :( Overall a nice stay!
This hostel could also run for a 3-star hotel: rooms are big and bright, well-equipped and extremely clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect in terms of safety and with many sights and places to eat nearby. What else could you ask for? I can definitely recommend This Old Place!
an exzellent one, would go again!
The standard room is next to the staircase and therefore it may be noisy at night because people are watching movies in the common area. Apart from that, the hostel is clean, cosy, offers cheap and good sandwiches, has extremely helpful und friendly staff, and offers a high value for your money. However, the WiFi is incredibly slow, barely usable. Luckily they had hardcopies of several travel guides. The pizza is overrated.
Outstanding hostel! Fantastic location, nice building and wonderful, helpful staff! Would go back any time
