this is a nice place, located in the middle of old town lijiang, a little difficult to find as everything is there! pretty nice rooms, helpful staff, mama and papa naxi are fun! helped us book our tiger leaping gorge accommodation (stay at the half way house, amazing). worth doing their evening meal for cheap.
Best hostel we stayed in. staff were great, and the food was reasonable and delicious. it's british owned, and the owners mother was so welcoming and friendly. beautiful comfy rooms, lovely facilities, beautiful garden and two gorgeous dogs. great location right on the edge of town. this place is absolutely worth the slightly higher than average price. 2 suggestions:have not quite so thick quilts for summer, and a lockable place to store bags or valuables rather than just a cupboard under stairs
this is a beautiful place, lovely design and decoration, excellent food and wonderfully priced, great rooms and bathrooms. however, the main reason we chose this place was the pool, yet the day we arrived it was out of action the entire day for cleaning. it took three times expressing our disappointment for the management to acknowledge us, and then were basically told that's the life goes sometimes.we were later offered 20rnb off bike rental cos they 'knew we were disappointed'
this is a pretty nice hostel, great areas to hang out. a few more signs on the way to the place would be handy, for quite a while you're not sure if you're going to the right place! the owner helped save us from a giant spider in our room, much appreciated.
we wanted to do a river cruise so came back for a night. the hostels' tour is fine, it takes you to the parts of the river you'd want to see but on a very noisy motor bamboo boat. see my previous review for how good this hostel is, definitely stay here in guilin. they have the cutest little kitten that they just rescued, giving this rating 110%. also, when we later came back from yangshuo for a few hours before our train, they let us leave our bags so we could wander around freely. excellent.
this place is amazing! really recommend you stay here. their info on how to get here is great, the hostel has amazing views, perfect location for hiking and seeing the terraces. double was comfy and simple, our window looking out onto the terrace. all food was amazing, best breakfast so far on the trip, and all western and chinese food was amazing. comfy and relaxed social area. a few bugs about, but you're in the heart of the county! free cloth washing!
I wish we had stayed in greenforest another night! this hostel was fine, dorms clean and comfy. the location is not as great but easy enough to find. social area is fine but they played terrible music really loudly till late at night, meaning conversation had to be shouted to be heard. Breakfast wasn't great. little things like when we were trying to talk to staff and they started having a conversation with each other from across the room for a minute before finishing answering us.
This was the perfect hostel to arrive to after a 24 hr train journey from beijing to Guilin. Location is great as it's maybe 10mins walk from the train/bus station, right on the river, and right on the edge of the central part of town (but without being right on the main road so not being disturbed by traffic). the staff were all very helpful and friendly, and can definitely be trusted. Double was beautiful, comfy, had huge window looking onto the river. Food and drinks are good.
Really clean and comfortable, just what was needed after arriving into Shenzhen past midnight - the 24hr reception was the main reason i booked here, but my stay was great.
