The best hostel I've stayed at in China. The staff are very friendly, and there are all the usual hostel facilities, but at a better quality and lower price than elsewhere.

This hostel really lives up to it's hype. If you go to Guilin, this is the place to stay. The bar area downstairs is like nothing we have seen in China, really cosy and has a nice vibe about it. The staff is by far the friendliest and nicest we have seen during one month of travelling in China (helped us with flight + train tickets without any hassle). We stayed in a double private and a dorm, both clean and nicely decorated. Bonus: Staff really love guests with a thick beard :)

Location is conveniently close to a big market / mall, nice staff, big common area. Basic double room is cheap but lack furnitures like a chair or desk. Will be back!

The best staff I have ever met at any place. They not only hear, but also listen to what you have to say or request and they always gave pertinent, tactful and useful answers. The facilities are functional and clean and the common areas are cozy and welcoming, although the rooms would look nicer if there were some retouches on small details like doorknobs and plugs.

We loved our stay because of the Wada girls, they were always smiling and ready to help us. The room was ok, but maybe just be taken care of more in terms of moisture and possible mould. The bathroom should be cleaned more often and tolitet paper please! Otherwise the common lounge is nice and the food and coffee they offer is excellent. Thanks for the stay :)

Thank you for your review! We are very diligent in keeping our rooms well-maintained to ensure they are always clean and mould-free. As for the bathroom, we routinely clean it on a daily basis in the afternoon and after our initial clean, we expect roommates to be courteous to one another and clean up after themselves. The toilet paper is replenish daily too but we are always available to provide additional toiletries when needed. We're glad you enjoyed our lounge and our delicious food! =)

This is the best hostel I've stayed in in China. Very friendly, very helpful staff; well-priced food and drink, and pretty much everything you could want. There are several good hostels in Guilin, but this one is the best.

- Outstanding staff: literally amazing people! SO HELPFUL most helpful ever in fact. - Good food in the hostel restaurant - Excellent Wifi - A lot of arrangements can be made through the staff - Great location next to the train station - Bikes for hire - Free towels Cons: - Bathrooms were a little dirty - Not exactly in the center of town, but can hire a bike - Guilin 'city' is more expensive than its neighboring cities (without the views) make sure to visit other parts !

The Wada girls are amazing. Their presence certainly sets the mood for the hostel. Everyone mingled. The tours were fair and hassle-free. Even the food was great! (They make a mean to-go sandwich for the tours!) Thanks for making my trip to guilin so easy and hassle-free!
