This is a really great hostel, and only the second 100% rating I've given. The price is good, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the facilities are excellent. I didn't try much of the food on offer, but the stuff I did try was very nice. Dali has a lot of good hostels, but this one is great.
This is a nice hostel, and the staff are particularly helpful. The maps, directions and guides to nearby attractions that are posted on the walls are very useful.
This is a good hostel, and I definitely recommend it if you come to Jinghong. Cheap, clean, good facilities, fast wifi and working aircon. The staff are very friendly and helpful; not all of them speak English well, but there's always someone there who does. The only problem is the directions offered to the hostel, which are just an address… save yourself the hassle and get a taxi. :-)
A good hostel, with fast wifi, working aircon and free breakfast. You might find better prices somewhere else if you haggle, but this place is a good combination of average prices and decent rooms.
This is an excellent hostel, and I'd recommend it to anyone staying in Vang Vieng. The guy in charge, Chris, is really helpful and is very hard to surprise - a very good characteristic in a party town like Vang Vieng!
A good hostel. The wifi is fast, the aircon is cold, the beds are clean and the breakfast is free! (that last bit saves you K10-15k per day)
A good hostel with clean rooms, helpful staff, and a very good location. The food and drinks at the hostel are a bit pricy, but it is surrounded by other restaurants, so it's not a big problem.
Still the best hostel I've stayed at in China!
This is an OK hostel, with decent prices and clean rooms. The room access arrangements (key kept at reception) and lack of a place to store valuables was a little annoying. Don't believe Google Maps, as they show a slightly incorrect location for the hostel; just look for the red LED "Buddy's Hostel" sign on the street.
The best hostel I've stayed at in China. The staff are very friendly, and there are all the usual hostel facilities, but at a better quality and lower price than elsewhere.
This is a very nice place, and in any other city, it would be the best hostel. In Guilin, however, they must compete with the main Wada hostel, which is hard to beat. Still, this hostel is closer to many town-centre locations, so if you want to visit bars and clubs or eat out, then this place is a very short walk away from those things.
This is the best hostel I've stayed in in China. Very friendly, very helpful staff; well-priced food and drink, and pretty much everything you could want. There are several good hostels in Guilin, but this one is the best.
While it was OK in most ways, the hostel room was not very clean, and had a worrying smell... I don't know if it was just the other guests in that room or not, but either way, this was the only hostel I've stayed in so far in China that I was happy to leave. The hard-sleeper train I left on was a relief, which says something! It is a pity, because they staff and most of the facilities were fine, but sleeping in the room was not good.
A well-positioned, clean and friendly hostel that's in the heart of downtown Zhangjiajie (such as it is :-) ). Most people come to the city to climb the mountain, but if you need somewhere to stay before or after, this hostel is an excellent choice. It's in a nice traditional-looking set of buildings that also contains many restaurants, bars, shops, and a few clubs, so it's ideal for letting off steam and relaxing after a few days climbing across mountains.
A good hostel in the perfect location for exploring the Zhangjiajie mountain park. The best-value accommodation you're likely to find on the mountain, and I strongly recommend staying here rather than outside the park; you can explore a lot more without needing to leave the park until the end of your visit. The "directions" needs updating, though: there is a way to reach the hostel without climbing up the mountainside with all your baggage!
A glorious, decorated, slightly-crumbling hostel. The most hostel-y hostel I've ever stayed at, and it offers good, cheap food in a nice restaurant/bar. But... beware of the toilets! Get an ensuite room if you can.
Very good beds and very good showers - excellent qualities for a hostel that people come back to after walking across a huge mountain! Can be a bit noisy at night, which is a problem if you want to wake up early for Huangshan, but that's a problem with the other guests, not the hostel. If you want to set off for Huangshan really early, remember to tell the staff the night before, otherwise you'll have to wait until the doors open at 06:30. It's easier if you arrive by bus/coach, than by train
