The hostel was excellent. The staff speak excellent English and the beds have curtains to give you some privacy. Would definately stay there again
The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They have some great pre-arranged trips you can do though we didn't take advantage of that. We stayed in a single room and the bed was AMAZING. Sometimes traveling in China you find planks rather than beds and this was a great treat. There was a great little market across the street with cheap breakfast I'd recommend.
Great hostel! Tasty food and lovely interiors. We only stayed there for one night but came back another day for lunch, coffee and cake. The only problem we had was that the other people staying there were very loud at night, because we could hear them talking in the terrace. But we'd still recommend this hostel!
Stayed at Wada Hostel for the whole week because of Golden Week. It was the best choice we could have made. The staff went above and beyond to make our long stay feel shorter. We loved all activities Wada had for us from the tours to the weekly dumpling making party and huge barbecue (so much food!). Great menu and food served in the restaurant as well. We definitely recommend Wada Hostel to anyone visiting Guilin and area. A special thank you to Monica for making us feel like family :-)

Really liked this hostel, and most of all the staff. They are very friendly and speak perfect english. The common area is large and buzzing with people, and has many facilities. Only downside was that my room was adjecent to the terrrace, where you could hear some drinking in the evening. Still though, I'd definately stay here again.
This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed inn. Super friendly staff, very clean, big comfortable beds with curtains for privacy and ensuite bathrooms. Great social atmosphere and the food is really fresh and tasty. The breakfast is especially good. Again, the staff is always very helpful and fun to hang out with too.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. Although it is located in what appeared to be an auto repair district of the city, requiring a good 20-30 minute walk to the downtown area, the hostel itself was quite nice. The beds were SO comfortable and big!!! The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and clean. Staff held a dumpling making party the night we stayed, so we got to meet a lot of other travelers and have fun.

I was very impressed with Wada and had an amazing time there! I did free dumplings on Monday night and they were delicious! Also the food there is outstanding and had lots of Western options which I loved (as I have been living in China awhile) The staff are super helpful and I was very happy with my time their. One thing, when you are looking to do tours make sure you check out all the options, Wada is cheaper but sometimes it is just as easy and cheaper to take the city bus! Thanks Wada
Super friendly staff. Dumpling party is fun. The food is really tasty and portion sizes are very generous. Only very minor drawbacks are the lack of wifi in the rooms, no secondary lighting option in our room and mozzie incense coils in the corridors would be welcome. Top hostel!
Had a great stay here, staff were very helpful and accomadating, would recommend this hostel.
As at Wada Yangshuo - and Guilin Central (see my reviews of these as comparison) - this hostel is one of the friendliest & comfiest in China.Tiptop spick&span ensuite dorms outstanding value. Really sociable common area,ok pool table,board games;wee nooks of reading & movie rooms as offshoots;very pleasant outdoor patio:caters for the main persuasions. Google&Youtube! Food good;big portions. But it's Mad Nice Evil Monica & Her Minions: the Monkey Panda Wada Girls who laugh&smile&keep you here.
Great hostel! Staff are fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Great clean rooms & beds. Would stay again.
Great hostel, fun atmosphere, excellent dorms and helpful staff.
The food was more expensive than other hostels that I went to, but it was tasty and well worth the extra cost.
We had fantastic welcome from the wada girls after a long tiring train journey. We arrived early and although the room wasn't available we could shower and leave our bags while we went exploring. The bar area is very sociable which offers great food including some amazing healthy fruit juices and salads. I enjoyed making dumplings with the other guests whils exchanging travel stories. Very nerabthe station and plenty of buses and shops. Highly recommended.
Great hostel with wonderful beds and a great common area. Especially the draperies for the beds in the dorm are great, makes it a lot easier to sleep as you are not affected by people walking around in the room.
Very good hostel overall. Nice atmosphere and friendly staffstaff.
Wada Hostel was perfect for my needs: the location was excellent with frequent bus services just down the road to all major attractions; the Wada girls were professional, friendly and welcoming; and the facilities and services were great! The shared dorms were basic but clean and provided everything you could need. With the help of the hostel's organised activities (dumpling making party!) it was easy to make friends with fellow travellers.
