Very nice place with events almost very night that turns the atmosphere really good in there! Nice restaurant and bar as well.


Staff were lovely, bar area was nice and chilled. They put on activities which gave the place a nice atmosphere. Rooms were fine (if not quite as modern as the wada in Yangshuo). Would recommend :)


Wonderful staff! Friendly, helpful, really create a welcoming atmosphere, enthusiastically gave advice on what to do. 4bed dorms are ensuite, a treat since most hostels in China have washrooms shared among much more people. Comfortable common area (muggy in summer), washing facilities and big area to hang dry clothes outside. Yangshou tour cool, although mixed with Chinese tour group so careful to stay together. Rice terrace tour no Eng speaking guide, I would've liked more info on the area!


This hostel had everything: amazing food, amazing staff and a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.


The biggest bunk beds I have seen traveling in China! And super cosy with the little curtains. I can fully recommend the hostel!


From their website with great information, to their confirmation of my booking, to the extreme friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, this was a great visit! In general, hosteling is about affordability, meeting others from all over the world and having fun. This hostel exceeded expectations, with reading room, TV room, pool table, good food, great outdoor covered area and a rather convenient location: 10 minute walk from the train station and bus stops near by.


Best hostel I stayed in during my trip through China. The rooms were nice and clean, with lockers for your luggage. The staff was amazing! (friendly, funny, very helpful and spoke great English) and it was a great place to meet new people. With the busses stopping right out front it is very easy to reach every sight in Guilin. The trips offered by the hostel are great and well worth their money. I would definitly stay there again.


Very good stay in Wada hostel, everything was perfect and particularly the "Wada girls" who have a very helpful attitude. One of the best hostel I stayed.


Probably the best Hostel I've stayed in and will stay in. The staff is absolutely amazing and the atmosphere is also great!

I would like to address this review as we are deeply saddened and also offended by it. Our hostel demonstrates customer service at its highest level and we absolutely respect everyone who walks through our doors with zero discrimination. We truly try our very best to make sure everyone has a wonderful time here. We really cannot understand why you would say such a thing to us. It is not right and you have hurt everyone here at Wada with your remarks.


Loved this hostel. The girls at reception are so nice. I was very unwell whilst there ( Too much drink followed by the flu) and they were so kind to me, allways checking on me to make sure I was ok. Great atmosphere and a great common room area in a quiet backstreet from the main street which is nice for sleeping. location isn't the best but the 2¥ #10 bus from the main road takes you everywhere in the city. Couldn't recommend it more.


Great hostel. Very convenient for arriving from the airport. Nicely decorated twin rooms, though compact. Friendly staff. The night watchman even offered some baiju.


Amazing staff, amazing atmosphere, amazing food (one of the best that we ate in china). We spent there almost a week and it was really wonderful! Thank you wada girls for everything!


This place is good enough although I think their tours are way too expensive and I feel they take way too much money for organizing things.

Hey, thanks for staying with us. For the point you mentioned above, we can't really agree. We organize lots of things for free, such as booking flight tickets, bus tickets, dumplings party, and weekly city cycling trip. For some trips we charge a little commission which is always within rmb20 per. Also for the agencies we work with are the best and reliable and safe, we care about your safety and happiness during your travel. Enjoy your time. Team Wada


I had a nice stay there, staff really nicem they help me with planing my route bus and train ! I met so nice people in the lobby, so comfy. The bad point is just the food is expensive to compare with other hostel I went .

Hey, thanks for staying with Wada. Also thanks for enjoying your time here. We provide the best food you can have in China, it is big portion to make sure you will get enough, it is fresh which we buy the materials every morning from the local farmers, It is homemade with love of Wada Team. But the price is much lower than most restaurants in the city. Also we organize free dumplings party every week. Have fun and enjoy your trip. Team Wada


Really cool place. The best place to stay in Guilin.


Kokapen ezinhobia West street pare-parian. Lantalde bikaina, berriro bueltauko nintzake biharra izanez gero! Perfect location, just in front of West Street. Great staff, I'll go back if I need it!


We enjoyed our brief stay and would strongly recommend Wada as the place to stay in Guilin.


This place is great! It has one of the warmest and welcoming environments of any place I've been. There are lots of little areas for sitting and socializing, a room for watching movies, a pool table, a wonderful book selection, and the food in the restaurant is really good...try the beer duck!
