The Wada girls let us have a perfect time in Guilin and in the hostel itself. Fluent English, helpful advice, good tour and other offers, really nice atmosphere, good and rather big dishes (especially breakfast!) and many travelers from all over the world. We loved it and would definetly return.

Lucky the dog was a most pleasant addition to the staff. If you need excellent service, comfortable beds, outstanding conversations with international travels, Wada should be your first stop.

Great Hostel! The staff is very friendly and helpful. They were helping us a lot with all the issues we had while travelling in China. We extended our stay and came back after we had been to Yangshuo. The only place I would stay in Guilin.

The staff were so kind, fun and helpful (and spoke really good English). It was super easy to book tours of the Rice Terraces and Li river through the hostel. The bar/commonroom area had a really good atmosphere and the dorm rooms were spacious with big bunk beds. Would definitely recommend.

This is the best place we've stayed in during our year-long tour of China. Absolutely fantastic. We especially loved how the common area encouraged people to talk to one another and hang out. Don't change a thing! :)

Though our stay here was only one night, I feel the cool vibe from this hostel and understand why the place has great reputation. I liked the traditional Chinese and pop mixed interior there very much. It's not a brand new super clean kind of hostel, but a unique and pretty hostel which has the own character. I hope to go back there again.

Nice hostel, with friendly staff and decent rooms. The menu is a bit pricy.

Thank you for your review. We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay here and that our staff were able to assist you with everything you needed. Regarding our food prices, we constantly ask for the feedback of our past guests about our food and have determined that our prices are very fair. We go the extra mile with providing fresh vegetables everyday, using high-grade cooking oil and many other high quality imported ingredients that other hostels probably would overlook. Happy travels!

The best in Wada Hostel was the staff. They are so friendly and want to help you all the time. That is the big difference in this hostel. I went to Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, Jiuzhaigou, Chengdu and at least, Guilin. The staff was the best one during my trip in China. Thank you for all! Douglas

Hey dear guest, Thanks for staying with Wada. Wada Team is the greatest team and it is always what we are trying to be. As you stayed in a dorm and checked in about 11pm, other people have taken shower and use the room, that's why you feel not really clean about it. We clean the rooms and bathrooms everyday including changing towels, bins and clean the floors. The mattress is very soft and loads of people like it so much. Anyway thanks for your feedback and wish you nice trip. Team Wada

Really cute, well-run little hostel with clean dorms/bathrooms and reasonably priced sight-seeing and tour packages (Li River cruises, day trip to Longsheng, etc) available at front desk. Staff is quite friendly and helpful in both Chinese and English. It's not quite in the downtown area but still fairly easy to reach from airport, plus it's close to the train station.
