The customer service at this hostel was excellent!! The staff was so friendly and helpful. We asked them multiple times for help and they were always ready to assist. The hostel itself was great, the electric heated beds was so nice. The common room was cozy and it allowed us to meet several people traveling from around the world. Thanks for the wonderful stay!!

I loved my stay at Wada. As the weather happened to be quite bad making most Guilin sights unattractive the hostel still provided a solid meeting hub for sharing stories and making friends. The common area is very good and promotes chatting and having fun together. The staff is very nice and fun, always welcoming you back with a smile and ready to help with anything you need. I stayed in a dorm room which was clean, bright, with solid, comfortable beds and curtains. Walking to center is 25 min.

Definitely the best hostel I stayed at on my trip. Friendly staff who are happy to help you with getting around, great hostel environment. I only stayed one night but they had a free dumpling party where they showed us how to make dumplings and then we got to eat them, it was fun and a great way to meet people. Rooms are reasonably sized with a bathroom for each room, and the electric blankets are fantastic when it's the middle of winter :D

Best hostel by far that I have stayed in China. Great atmosphere thanks largely to the staff who are very friendly. Great menu and good food! Rooms are spacious and still manage to maintain privacy despite being dorms.

The staff are the nicest of any hostel I've been to and the food is great - including the vegetarian options. The communal area has a wonderful atmosphere and stay on Friday night for the BBQ if you can. Beds are large and comfortable with electric blankets as standard in winter. It's a shame the surrounding area isn't great, but the hostel is fantastic. Completely recommend.

The stuff was great, very friendly and helpful. They have free laundry service (but only from 16:00). Good for staying in the winter (heating and electric blanket!). Great food a specially the healthy salad!. The only thing, the WiFi only in the mutual area, not in the rooms, and because they offer food and drinks, it's not allowed to bring your own food and drinks to the lobby.

Thanks for your wonderful review! I'm so glad that you love our healthy salads. We know it can be hard to find healthy options in China so we're trying our best to give health conscious guests peace of mind when it comes to food. For the wifi, we focus our energy to provide uninterrupted wifi within our fun common space along with a dedicated VPN network that is unseen anywhere else. We know China does there part to censor and we will do our part for freedom. Team Wada

Hola! Hello! Bonjour! Stayed two different nights at Wada Hostel. Me and my frienda we can gladly say that we loved our time there. Nice rooms, warm beds, not bad for winter time, and nice atmosphere. Also very good treatment given by the Wada girls. Only but may be not having WiFi in the rooms, only in the common area, but in the end is nice and makes you enjoy all the facilities from the hostel.

The wada was one of my favourite hostels so far!!!! The receptionists were beyond helpful and the atmosphere in the hostel was great and social! The BBQ on Friday nights is amazing!!! Well worth the money. Heated blankets in the room and blankets around the hostel were a huge perk as it is cold here in the wintertime. The staff were kind enough to push one of my nights here forward in the week so that I could go to yangshou on the sunny days.

Directions on hostel world are not from the main train station. Coat hooks in the room would be helpful. Wonderful staff made our stay a pleasure. Thank you.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your review! That's strange that you didn't get directions from the main station as the confirmation email will provide directions from all major transportation hubs. Anyway, guests can also check on our website for additional reference. Team Wada

The hostel atmosphere is really fantastic. Probably the only hostel in China where the staff greeted us everytime we walked in the door.

LOVED staying here! The dorms were quiet and comfortable, the lobby was fun to relax in and meet people, and the staff are great. The location was a little bit of an inconvenience, mainly because of all the construction going on in the area. Had to walk through a lot of muck and dust to get to a bus or taxi. But it's close to the train station and a bus stop. Also the food was a little pricy. Could offer some normally priced Chinese dishes in addition to the 30-40 yuan western ones.

Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed your stay here. We're sorry about the construction that's going on in the city. It's fortunately not as bad now. As for the food, it may be pricey to some but keep it mind that our food quality is far superior than many hostels. Our costs are much higher as we source from very reputable brands and many imported items as well. Many of our items are home-made from scratch like our fresh cut potato fries, tomato sauces, bakery items and soups.

Good hostel with an easy access to the city center by bus. Loved the heaters in beds!
