The girls were super helpful and planned our day for us filled with sight seeing! We also went on a tour that was easy to sign up for through the hostel, which has good connections with the travel agency. We also loved the environment, food, smoothies, and it was very easy to meet other people! Would stay again for sure.

There's nothing that I can fault these guys on! Absolutely awesome!!! The girls especially are amazing!!!!!
Best hostel in China! Possibly the world! Beds are amazing, heated! Free to do washing, food is delicious (fries and brownies in particular are amazing!) Staff are super friendly and helpful, could not do anymore for you! Common area also great for meeting people. Free dumpling party and all you can eat BBQ were awesome. Hostel also very accommodating to allowing you to swap your booking to their other hostel in Yangshuo. Couldn't of asked for anything more, would love to return.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Wada for 3 nights and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. A spacious room equipped with a safe, huge delicious potions of food and a team of amazing staff made the experience brilliant. Can't stress how good the fries are, as well as the beer and pool table. Would definitely stay again.

The staff goes out of their way to be helpful. Location is connected to transit hubs by local bus routes. The atmosphere is more social than the average hostel in China. No complaints.
Wow. The staff all speaks great English. Great common room area. WiFi only in the common areas to keep you interacting and making friends. They have fun activities, but if you do the BBQ, you may want to ask for not-spicy bexcuse it will light your mouth of fire. Really great hostel. Outlets in lockers to lock your stuff up and charge it overnight.
We had such a fantastic stay here that we ended up extending our stay by 2 nights! We were lucky to be there for both the Dumpling Party and the BBQ night which were both amazing. Without a doubt the best hostel we stayed at during our 6 weeks in China- the staff were so welcoming and friendly and really made us feel at home and comfortable! Can't recommend this hostel enough! (Really comfy beds too)
The Wada girls are so friendly and welcoming, and they speak the best English of all the hostels I stayed in China. The food is excellent and the Friday night BBQ is well worth. The atmosphere in the whole place makes it easy to meet others. And the best part is there above and beyond service. It was pouring rain the day I left and a staff member walked me out with a huge umbrella and helped me flag a taxi. Thanks Wada girls, you're great!!
The guys at Wada do a great job. Even though we only stayed for the night as we had to catch a flight early the next morning, we still managed to meet some great people at the hostel within that time, and found it a nice place to chill out. Will definitely be back for more!
We had a very good time in the Wada hostel, especially the BBQ was great! Thanks for being so kind and helpful, we really enjoyed our stay.
Amazing staff - especially Monika :) Great food, great beds, super clean and a very nice atmosphere. Most amazing hostel that I have stayed in in China so far. Highly recommended!
Excellent hostel. The staff were great which created a great atmosphere and the rooms were clean and spacious. The tours were good value for money also. When looking for the hostel follow the given instructions and the stone dragons will eventually appear at the end of the road!
Loved wada!!! The best/most unique part about this hostel has to be the staff. They are so wonderful and accomadating, I really can't stress how amazing they were. You can find good facilities anywhere you travel, but such wonderful people are a dime a dozen!
Wada was definitely one of my favs!! the receptionists were exceptional and the best service i've had in china over the past few months, so welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere was perfect, made heaps of friends every day i was there. Loved that the hostel did functions each night > BBQ night was amazing! and you definitely get lots of food and meet lots of great people! I usually don't write long reviews but this hostel was just great! > Beds were amazing too! thanks guys x
Great environment. Reqlly easy to meet people in the large public spaces. My only issue was with the amount of mosquitoes in the bathroom.
Wada is the most accommodating hostel I have stayed at. The staff is fantastic and it was a great environment for meeting other travelers. The Friday BBQ is a must.
Pretty well the most amazing hostel I've ever stayed in! Let me recap the positives: roomy dorms, comfortable beds, fantastic location, amazing and attentive staff, free laundry, delicious and well-priced food, information and tours desk, travel information geared towards backpackers, hot showers, toilet paper always in stock, rooms cleaned daily! Wonderful hostel and I look forward to my stay there again really soon!
