We really enjoyed our stay in this guesthouse(!) So much that we went back there for a second time during our trip. The reason for this is the great location, near shopping/party centre and subway close by. Don't forget it's a guesthouse, no party hostel. So keep quiet after a certain time and no BYOB. Then again, because it's a guesthouse the atmosphere is excellent. Quiet and cosy. It's just feels like home. With Heather as a kind host of the house your Korean home stay is complete

One of the best hostels I stayed at during my visit in China. The staff is just the best. Very good english, very helpful and they really make you feel at home! No bad words about this place except for the common area. The reception area is a bit small and the bar they have serves expensive beers compared to the ones available next door. Dorms are good, atmosphere is the best and location is superb! I already miss this place and would definitely go back there!
The hostel is very big since it is in an old building. The common area is huge as well with pingpong and pool table. The staff is very helpful when asked about things to do around the area or when asked about directions. The location is pretty good, not in the centre but 15 minute walk from a well connected subway station so getting around is easy! The rooftop bar can get quiet busy which is a good way to meet new people. The beers are expensive though so bringing your own is advised.
The staff is helpful and speaks good English. The hostel itself is more of a hub for people that want to stay/visit at Zhangjiajie park, but therefore they are helpful when planning a trip there or staying at the park itself. They have a sister hostel inside. The hostel itself is cosy and pretty big. The common area is nice and it's a good place to meet people. Location is ok, not that central, but it's easy to get around by bus. They provide a map and the staff will tell you where to get on/of
The hostel was a very nice place to stay and be. Since it it one of the only hostels in Changsha, is was easy to meat new people. The common area is pretty big with some sort of a living room, diner table, backyard with pool table and pingpong. Although the location is not very central, it's easy to get around by bus as long as you know which one to take. The staff was very helpful and is willing to translate or write down things in Chinese for reserving train tickets e.g.
The hostel is in the Longsheng rice terrace park, so entrance of 40/80 is to be payed before beeing able to get to the hostel. When you book the hostel they arrange a bus for you to get there from Guilin (maybe Yangshuo, don't know). The location is excellent since it's placed on the rice terrace hills. Hostel looked good and tidy, wooden floors. A bit noisy when people walk downstairs. There was no tap water (shower, toilet) when I arrived, but think that's just bad luck. Would stay again!
Very helpfull staff! Spoke good English! Nice lounge area with couches and computers to go online. Free lockers and free towels. Possibility to order food (Chinese/English). Some activities (Dumplings/BBQ) Nice outside lounge (when weather is good). Easy to find! Would definatly stay there again!!
The hostel looked to me like an apartment owned by 1 or 2 Chinese who live there as well. Therefor the ambience of the hostel wasn't that pleasent. Loud tv (in Chinese, no prob) but no foreigners. Not to blame the hostel, since Guangzhou is a business city over tourist attraction. Beds were ok, rooms very small.
