Guilin Riverside Hostel, Guilin, China
5th May 2013

Original room smelled moldy but I was moved to a dryer (and nicer) room quickly, but this might not be possible if the hotel were full. The hostel was okay (more like a hotel), but the manager was very pushy about selling trips. Overall, I think Guilin is a hard-sell city and this may just be par for the course, but it was not my experience in other cities in China and I did not like the overall feeling.

I had a great stay at Sim's. I thought my room was very comfortable and clean, though I did notice that one of the shelves was broken. The staff was great, and the other guests were interesting and I enjoyed chatting with them during the trip to the panda breeding ground. I only had breakfast at Sim's (and a dinner I cooked during a Sichuan cooking lesson), and it seemed basic but decent Western-style food. It's not in the center of the city, but I liked the more "ordinary" location.
