Pos: Overall, I really enjoyed this place. They were very nice and the food was really good too! It's a bit far from the main downtown area, but that's what makes it so great (peaceful and nice view of the mountains). The other guests were very laid back. This is definitely not a party hostel. Guests and staff were all asleep by 11pm Neg: My lights stopped working at 2am. Bad timing because I was having bathroom/stomach issues. Staff was asleep, so used a flashlight to find the toilet...

If you decide to stay in Yangshuo, skip the hotels in the city centre and go for this hostel. It's a great place, with very friendly, helpful and English speaking staff. Rooms where nice and clean.

I had a wonderful stay at Carpe Diem!!! The staff was so friendly and helpfull. They organised trips, boked busses and taxis, and everything with a smile. Food in the hostel is fantastic. Western and chinese. Location is just out of town, away from the noise. Easy to get into the city with the bikes (bring a flash light)

Its a perfect place to stay. Its a bit outside the city center (takes about 30 minutes walk) but its totally worth it. The staff is extraordinary kind and helpfull. They can organise for us many trips, reservations or activity. The place is quiet, with a very nice view on the mountains. I cannot think of a reason to stay elsewhere, the efficiency and the generosity of the staff there made our stay in Yangshuo unforgettable.

Recommended by someone as it was relaxed and away from the town centre. I have to admit I probably would have picked a slightly more central location as it was at least 30min walk away or 20-30 RMB taxi. Based in a quiet village with not much in the way of local facilities but the bar/restaurant had everything as well as extremely helpful staff. Bicycles were available for rent (many of them broken) but had to be returned by midnight. Definitely better for families than solo travellers

The staff is very nice and speaks a very good English. They can plan trips for you and have excellent recommendations that go way beyond the normal tourist program. My advice: Book a bike or a scooter and visit the most beautiful areas around yangshou away from the usual Chinese mainstream.

The second night we found a cockroach in the room. We also woke up the final morning with bite marks from bed mites or bed bugs. We received an email from the hostel before arriving saying that they could pick us up at the airport, train station, bus station, or any hostel in Guilin, any time of day or night. The hostel in fact only does pick-ups in Yangshuo. The email also said that the hostel organises transfers to and from the centre 7 times a day for just 5Y a person. This is also not true.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We live in the countryside and can't guarantee that never ever a bug will sneak into a room but we do periodically treat our rooms to clear them as soon as they arise. Not sure about the misunderstanding about the pick-up service, we do offer a pick-up service from anywhere in Guilin or the airport as mentioned in our emails and on our website, however we can't find your email to request one? Instead of the rarely used shuttle service we have decided to offer all guests free bikes after 4.00pm!

Nice place, a little bit of a walk. Not really that scenic, but away from the madness of west Street. Refused to show World Cup final game!

We spent one week at Trippers Carpe Diem. It was the most enjoyable week that we had in China. Cara, Vivian and the rest of the team really made a difference. The were always available, gave us good advices and smiles. Yanshuo is an amazing place, it's like being in a postal card and having the kind of service we had at Carpe Diem made it more unforgettable.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at. The staff is really nice and can help you with any questions. They have good advices about hiking and bicycling away from the crowds. The food is tasty and the trips you can book with the hostel have a good price. Really good place. It is outside of the center but you don't go to Yanshuo to party, the nature is nice around the hostel

For everybody who likes to be a little out of town: this hostel is perfect for you! on the terrass we enjoyed our breakfast with a spectacular view of the mountains around and our beer in the still very warm evening. the hostel is clean and staff is friendly and helpfull with a good english. the bicyclerides and bath in the river (which is nearby) are a nice change to the else busy and loud life in china. since it is alittle out of town you shoul use the pickup-service when you first arrive.

We stayed two nights and would definitely recommend it to everyone! Super-friendly staff who gave a lot of suggestions of what to do, where to bike etc.

I had an absolutely lovely experience staying at Trippers Carpe Diem. Unbelievably caring and helpful staff, lovely and friendly atmosphere, very welcoming and a great way to meet new people. Food is high quality and reasonably priced with lots of variety. It is not in the centre, but it's not a big deal and to be honest, you don't really want to be staying in the centre of Yangshuo anyway. The best hostel experience I have ever had, I absolutely recommend it.

The hostel (4 bed) was great - very clean and cosy. The bathroom could be better as it needed some ventilation and smelt a little damp. Other than that, everything was great and the staff were lovely.
