Love Wada! As a solo traveler, Wada was exactly the atmosphere I was looking for. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the common area was comfortable and wonderful to hang out in, and the services such as free laundry and free wifi/VPN made the stay perfect. My favourite part of the stay was the Friday night bbq- amazing food and met a lot of super cool people. Thanks for everything Wada!
Nice hostel! Love the electric blankets. Nice big but cosy common area, and staff were very nice, especially when I had to come back due to my flight being cancelled
Had a really nice time here over new years. Staff made a real effort for the new years eve party including a dumpling lessoon, all you can eat bbq and champagne. Lovely girls. Excellent hostel.

Excellent place in Guilin, really good atmospher and the staff is so nice, will defintely be back again!
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.
great staff and atmosphere, nice rooms
Absolutely loved it. Definitely sign up for the BBQ on Fridays and the rice terrace tour!
Stayed in the wada hostel both in Guilin and Yangshuo. Awesome place!! Great staff, food, atmosphere, everything! You cant find a better hostel in China
Everybody was helpful, location is great, staff is great. Thanks WADA girls!
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.
wada girls = Best hostel team ever! super nice and helpful. if I make it back to Guilin, I know where I will be staying...

Brilliant hostel. Staff very helpful. Amazingly remembered our names!
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.
