Had a great stay at Rock Solid! Great security, good/clean bathrooms and kitchen. Comfy beds - wifi didn't always work on my laptop but fine on other devices. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely loved my stay at the Dwellington! Such a clean/tidy place, really nice kitchen and free breakfast was much appreciated. No lockers, but I felt very happy leaving my stuff in my room. Only downside is the location, bit of a walk to town. But it's worth it as the hostel is such a great place! Definitely recommend and would stay again for sure!

Really good hostel - would definitely recommend! Good security with passcodes for doors, no lockers but I felt my stuff was completely safe! Really nice bread for breakfast each morning! Bathrooms were clean and the kitchen was very well stocked for all your cooking needs. Thanks a lot!

LOVED this hostel so much! Kitchen area was always very clean, and well stocked for crockery and cooking utensils. Also loads of fridge space. Good security for the hostel rooms too, though the lockers aren't in the rooms, but down the hall. Bathrooms were amazing! Some of the best I've seen at a hostel - so clean and spacious and tidy! Had a fab stay here and they let me store my bags free for a couple of days while I was away on the Routeburn Track. Definitely recommend!!! And will stay again!

Mixed feelings about this hostel - the staff were helpful and friendly, good security for the hostel itself and then lockers in rooms, and a great location. However, this is a party hostel first and foremost. The communal dining area was frequently occupied by the 'long-termers' playing beer pong and leaving little room for anyone else to eat or hang out. Also felt a bit exclusive as they all seemed to know each other - so maybe not the best place for solo travellers.

I stayed in a four bed mixed dorm, it was fine. The beds were comfy, good sized lockers and keycard access to rooms which was good. The hostel itself had good bathroom facilities, and a really good kitchen area with a lot of space to make your own food. Atmosphere was alright, but maybe a little cliquey. Price for location wasn't bad, but doesn't include free wifi which is a pain, not bad speed etc. though if you do pay for it.

I only stayed the one night in a private single room, but it seemed to have a really nice atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Second time to stay here but won't be back. This time was in the other building so not the main one. Just kinda miserable really. Didn't have electricity for a day or so (but that was the weather). Staff were friendly. Not good for the price, but Hong Kong is expensive anyway.

Very nice hostel, though I had trouble finding it as I arrived in the dark and there aren't any signs I saw! Especially as it's in a housing complex which I didn't expect. But the hostel was very nice and clean. Staff were friendly but not around a lot which wasn't a huge problem as I didn't need help. Would recommend for sure.

Thank you Hannah. Hope you having a nice trip in Hong Kong :)

Had a very enjoyable stay here! Like others have said, it's a bit out of Yangshuo town but I liked being away from the crowds/noise. Only about 20 min walk, and if you go along the river its pretty nice! But the hostel itself was pretty quiet and people did keep to themselves, so maybe not for the social butterflies. But the staff were really friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and the beds were super comfortable! Would definitely stay again if in Yangshuo. Thank you so much!

:) Glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the fact that we are indeed a little out of the town, the river side walk and the peace and quiet have always been worth it in our opinion :) We were a bit quiet during your stay but we do tend to attract those looking to relax and find some peace and quiet. Hope we get to see you back here one day ^__^

Absolutely loved my stay here! Despite the initial hike up to the hostel - which was pretty tiring/uncomfortable in the summer heat! - it was totally worth it! The view from my room was incredible and Dragon's Den was a really good location for the scenic spots in the rice terraces. Very friendly and helpful staff and the food/milkshakes were great! And the wifi was good considering how remote the villages are. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you so much!

Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were friendly and spoke good English. Really good location - I didn't really plan on doing all that much in Guilin, but it felt pretty central. Close to the busy tourist area but far away enough to not be noisy etc. Definitely stay here again!

Thank you for your review and we're very glad you enjoyed your stay here at Backstreet! Our hostel is very central in the city. In fact, it is the best located of all the hostels in Guilin. We're tucked away from the busy tourist street, Zheng Yang Pedestrian Street. Beside us is the famous Li River and around the corner is the 2 Pagodas and also the Elephant Trunk Hill. We are also in a very well known area which makes it very easy for taxis to find. See you again! =) Team Backstreet

We stayed here for only a few nights, but didn't particularly enjoy it. Only really because the walls were so paper thin and our room was located in an area people often stopped to chat loudly at around 3am. Also, one incident with a member of the bar staff not knowing what they were doing and giving me attitude.

Lovely hostel! Only there for a couple of nights but the staff were very friendly/helpful and the hostel food was really nice! Also a plus, if you're staying in winter, they have proper heaters (at least they did in our room!) so it's nice and toasty. Would definitely go back if in Xi'an again!

Great hostel! The staff were really friendly and helpful with everything. The hostel bar was a great place to chill and the food was good value for money. Only downer was the lack of a real central heating system, but in the summer that wouldn't be a problem and this hostel would be perfect. Great stay and will definitely go back there if in Beijing again!

Nice place; staff were friendly and helpful in terms of checking out early morning (just gave reception a knock and someone answered) and bus to the airport. Relatively good internet access.Lockers were provided, but take your own padlock. This hostel is legal by the way, others in the same building aren't but this one is fine - also, no getting locked out (though the latest I stayed out was midnight. Pretty easy to find too. Handy supermarket across the road.
