Great hostel, very nice and helpful staff and EXCELLENT location. Helped us tour the great wall. I went with my dad and it was perfect, didn't feel like a 'youth' hostel persay as there were people of all ages there. Would love to stay here again!
The staff were not rude, but they were definitely not friendly. all the other places I stayed in China, the staff were very helpful and made me feel like they didn't mind it when I asked for help, questions, things to translate and write down in Chinese. Whenever I asked someone for help, they behaved like they could not be bothered. They didn't bother to say anything when I checked out...not a goodbye, not a thank you, nothing. I would not stay here again as I felt very unwelcome. Poor service!
Staying in the rice terraces was one of the highlights of my trip! The hostel was in a great location...in tiantouzhai village, away from all the tourist hustle and bustle and right at the edge so you could walk outside and get a magnificent view of the terraces. From my window I could see everything and was able to see the sun rising over the peaks. The staff were so nice and helpful, assisting my with booking a hotel, writing down translations and giving information about transport. Wonderful!
Great hostel with very friendly and extremely helpful staff. They helped me to arrange transport, activities and other things to do. They even gave me bananas the morning I had to leave since their breakfast service was not open yet. I would stay here again if I am ever back in Yangshuo. The location is great because it is walkable to town in about 15-20 minutes but is still in the countryside so all you can hear at night are frogs, birds and crickets. The food served their is delicious. Great!!
