Great relaxed feel, nice rooms, friendly staff and real Western breakfasts. Ask the staff to cook you what they eat if you want some more interesting (and spicy) Chinese food. A nice retreat. The kids loved the pool table.

I'm really glad I stayed at this hostel. The location is great and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. It's in a quiet village just outside of the sometimes tourist heavy bustle of Yangshuo which made for a really relaxing stay. The food is good too! Recommended.

I liked the location and the staff where helpful and nice. the private room I had was not good. It was constantly damp/wet for three nights. My clothes and bedding felt wet constantly and the floor was always wet. they said it was because the new building behind stopped the sun and wind. The bathroom smelled revolting even though it was cleaned everyday. other people I spoke to did not have this problem I think I just got the bad room (103)

Very nice Hostel which is about 20 minutes walk away from the city. For the first arrival, they offer a free pickup service, which is very nice. The stuff is very friendly and can help you planning your activities (we did a bike ride and a hike)

The staff were really outstanding and went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay at the hostel. They spoke English well and gave great advice when helping us plan what to do during our time there. Would definitely stay there again!

We stayed in 9 hostels on our backpacking tour and this one was our favorite. It's in the countryside and it's absolutely gorgeous. It really is almost like a hotel. They have a great deck that you can hang out on and they even let us watch our movies on their projector. They serve really great Western food here as well. We loved having the free bikes after 16:00!

This hostel is very pretty and has a good quiet atmosphere. The location is not ideal if you want to be close to West Street. It's about a 25 min walk down paved forest paths that are pitch black at night. They have great food and free bikes after four. The private rooms are like a hotel and very nice.

The hostel was quite nice, but it's a bit far out of town. The staff will help you with everything though, including taxis and tours, but as a solo traveller a few things were off-limits to me due to the tour needing two people. Wasn't the biggest fan of the bathroom in the dorms.

A 1.5 km walk/ ride out of Yangshuo, this hostel is definitely worth it! The walk through the countryside by the river is just beautiful, even in February. Amazing village location, quiet and unspoilt. Outside communal area that would be great in summer, the indoor one closed a little early. However, staff very helpful and friendly. They offer good priced bike hire, but you can hire better bikes for the same price in Yangshuo. The bedside electrics let the dorms down, but clean and good ensuite.

Spent three days here with my girlfriend and we had a great time. The hostel staff are very helpful and the trips and activities were great value for money. The room was basic but comfy, although it would have been nice if the shower was slightly warmer. The location is a pleasant 15/20 minute walk from the town centre, or an easy taxi ride. The hostel food was excellent. A friendly hostel that is great value for money! 谢谢

A fantastic hostel in a great location - it's quiet and beautiful and bike rides from here go straight into the countryside. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is excellent value for money! We would recommend this hostel to everyone staying in Yangshuo, and would definitely love to return.

The hostel is right out of the main hub so quite difficult to get to but once you are there it's worth it. Lovely and quiet surroundings. Staff were lovely and the food was great. Room was slightly damp however and bed sheets felt damp.

Lovely hostel, good location, nice and quiet but a quick 15 minute walk to town. Staff were so friendly and helpful! Did the rock climbing tour which was good. Bar/ cafe is nice and well priced. Double room nice, bathroom could be bigger. Would stay here again.

A little bit outside of town but not as remote as we would believed. Good food and good rooms. Beds were a little stiff. Don't care for the shower with no basin. Staff was good.

The staff was very attentive and helpful. Rooms were clean and the staff was conscientious enough to remind us not to put our luggage on the bed in order to keep the place clean, which I did appreciate. They arranged our taxi and bus back to Yangshuo and Guilin Airport.
