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!
We kwamen aan in het hostel en de man van de receptie keek niet op of om. hij was druk met de computer en handelde snel en ongeïnteresseerd onze boeking af. hij vertelde niets over het hostel en guilin. De receptie en de bar waren stoffig en absoluut niet schoon.. De tafel was al dagen niet afgenomen en de kruimels van dagen geleden lagen nog op tafel. We hebben zelfs het tafelkleed opgerold zodat ze de tafel zagen, maar het is niet schoongemaakt. Onze kamer was wel netjes en redelijk schoon.

My girlfriend and I checked into a 4 bed dormroom where we spent two days to rest. There isn't a lot going on in Guilin as it's just another big city in China so I'd recommend not to spent too much time there, but if you have to maybe check out the boat tour on the river. Anyways the hostel is clean and has great beds where even a big European like myself can fit into :) The food is al right and they actually make a good pizza if your in the mood for that.
Wij waren met een familie, 2 volwassenen en 2 kinderen, en hadden een familiekamer geboekt met zicht op het meer. De familiekamer bestond eigenlijk uit 2 kamers met tussenin de badkamer, heel ruim. De airco werkte ook heel goed. De ligging is heel goed, op wandelafstand van de meren en de autovrije wandelstraat, vol met kraampjes en winkels. De meren zijn 's avonds ook heel aangenaam om te wandelen. We zijn hier maar 1 nacht gebleven, maar ik zou hier opnieuw verblijven.
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.
Très bonne auberge, personnel très agréable, très propre, manque quelques petites choses à grignoter que la carte propose mais qui ne sont pas disponibles
Nice place. Walking distance to downtown Guilin.
Good to be able to organise day trips and tours.
Buena relacion precio-confort, personal agradable, ubicacion excelente, es para recomendar y volver
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.
