The hostel Christmas party definitely helped make Christmas! Monopoly and/or Cluedo would be great additions to the board games pile...

Great staff, atmosphere, dumpling parties, bbq, games and everything you could need. Help with tickets, tours and more. Plus heated blankets, unlimited hot showers. One of the best hostels I have stayed at in months of travel.

Pros: staff were a stand out- very well spoken, very organised and helpful, many rooms and areas, menu was super tasty, rooms and ensuits were suffice , great security, wifi was super speedy (no VPNs required!) Cons: location/ area is a bit disjointed. Prepare your journey getting there! (Money, map etc) TO DO: visit their Wada sister hostel in Yangshuo , prices are the same and you won't be charged for cancellation fees if you swap! Better location, smaller hostel though.

Great hostel. Very spacious and comfortable common areas with a large outdoor area as well. Staff is great- very helpful. Buses are all nearby and convenient. Free use of the washing machine along with free drinking water are definite pluses.

The staff is wonderful. Both the front desk and the bar. I cannot say enough. The food options are good too. The rooms themselves good use a few updates/upgrades. The wifi was some of the best we found in China. The hostel is probably more social than we experienced. It was quite busy the day we arrived, but the next night was pretty empty.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We would have written your names here but Hostelworld doesn't allow it. And the reason why we remembered your names was because you girls were so sweet. =) Team Wada

94% overall score from over 1400 ratings; clearly the people at Wada are doing something right! Easy directions from Guilin Train Station and they even let me in early at 6am to crash on their sofa. The staff - all girls with excellent English (sometimes with British accents) - are very helpful and friendly. I stayed in the dorm rooms which are spacious, have curtains and an ensuit bathroom. Pool table is actually very good and I highly their sandwiches with fries. Superb hostel, top marks!

Excellent. The staff spoke good English, they knew the bus routes to all the major attractions in and around Guilin. Furthermore, they were able to help organise tours to the rice terraces or bamboo river cruises; all with pick up from the hostel. Food was good. Very friendly atmosphere and a good common area with a place to eat, a pool table and sofas. Great place to meet other travellers.

The most important job a staff has, is to make you feel welcome. And they definitely do with Wada, great job girls. Nice sheltered place, and you're in the city centre in no time. Close to the station.

Very nice place, good location, all staff is friendly and helpful!!! My friend and I spent 2 nights there. Our flight delayed in the midnight, the staff gave us clear direction and the late check in is very smooth. All the girls in front desk can speak frequently English and Mandarin, they provide us many useful tips of traveling in Guilin and Yangshuo. The girl’s room not big, but clean and comfortable. I love the bed so much!!!! Totally recommended!!!

Very cozy hostel! Their rooms are very basic, as you would expect in a hostel, but very clean. The staff is great! Very helpfull, very polite and very good english skills! We really enjoyed our stay there! Very good food as well, loved my breakfast every morning and you got to try the french fries ☺️ The lounge is very cozy, every evening we would have a drink and meet some of the other guests. We really loved the fact that they had a variety of boardgames to choose from ☺️
