Not sign or name for the Hostel on the building. Good if you are on a tight Budget or just need to stay for one night because your actual hostel is overbooked as mine was. Else spend some more $ and get more for it.

Staff seemd to be grupmy and unmotivatet almost all the time. 5min waiting time at the counter had to be expectet, although you were the only person there. Had to wave at them with my passport to get their attention of their computer screen to check in. Changing money (bill to coins which where needed for the hostel's laundrymachine & dryer) seemd to be a herculean task and so on. Was almost a cultural shock after more then two weeks in hostels in mainland china with super staffs.
Hidden in a side ally of the west street (main tourist street). Hostel was clean and staff ok. My privat had a nice view over the town and the river. Probabely not perfect for early sleepers: bars/tourists were loud and hearable until late in the night. Bikerental from external companys recommended, the ones we rented through the hostel were not the best.
Nice hostel a 20-30min walk off downtown Guilin. Busstops in front of the complex and nice local market/stores close by. Staff is very helpful and fluent in english! Hostel is a nice base from where you can do 2-day trips to the ricefields (very recommended - highlite of my stay) and yangshuo (very touristy - rent a bike and get out of the beaten paths). Almost forgot the best: The bar is equipped with a Lavazza machine and the girls know how to use it! nice to get a good coffee in china! ;)
Close to the Trainstation, 10min walk to the Metro. Staff very friendly and helpful, some struggeling a bit with english but there was always one around to help out. Amazing building with nice and quiet courtyard (Paradise in this noisy and vivid city!), nice restaurant which is worth it's price aslong as you don't have to turn every coin twice. Had a Private, best room of my 3 weeks/5 hostels trip! If i'll come back to Xi'an i'd just check the availability here.
