Nice location, but felt more like a hotel than a hostel to be honest. Staff were helpful when we needed them. Tours are more expensive here than at other hostels - like Longji Rice Terraces day trip in around 300RMB pp, but at Wada Hostel (also in Guilin), it only costs 220RMB pp.
When we stayed at this hostel, we lost some clothing - either someone stole it from the washing line, or we dropped it and someone picked it up and took it. We told the staff but they didn't make any effort to help.
We stayed here twice - the first time everything was fine. The second time was at Chinese New Year - we got to our room, but had no towels, so we asked at reception - they said there should be some in the room - there wasn't. So we went back again and this time they said it wasn't included in the room rate. So we asked if we could hire some, but they said no. Rooms are nice and well furnished - the common area/bar is cool, but lacks atmosphere.
lovely bright, new, clean dorm rooms - staff are alright, maybe their English isn't great but they're helpful. You go up some pretty grotty stairs, but the hostel itself is very clean and bright and has a roof-top terrace, where you can sit at night and drink a beer, whilst looking at the Karst peaks all lit up.
The staff here are so nice and friendly - they have lots of time to help you if you need it. The food in the restaurant/bar is really tasty, especially the chips. AND there's a cute puppy, who's very very friendly - his name is lucky :) Only bad point would be the location - that being said, it is close to the train station and the staff have a good knowledge of the local bus routes if you don't want to walk.
nice hostel, nice staff, nice rooms.
The staff are great - they're always there to help you with any questions you have about things to do and see. It's close to the metro and not far from the Star Ferry crossing. They have maps of Hong Kong for free and guide books you can use too. The room is a bit cramped and top bunk is quite high. There were 9 people in our room instead of 8. The first night I had to sleep on a mattress on the floor but I asked to move when someone else left and it was no problem.
Staff are really helpful - always happy to help you out in any way. Rooms are nice, but the ensuite bathroom was dirty - we just used the shared facilities.
Bathrooms were disgusting. I wouldn't recommend staying longer than one night, and even then only if you have to. One member of staff was really helpful when we checked in, but the girl with the shaven head was really rude and impolite - made things worse
This hostel is in a nice place, close to the night market. Our only problems were the lack of towels and toilet paper in the bathroom and also the erratic air-con/electricity/water situation. Any one of the three seemed to be not working. Also they don't give you a remote for your air-con - you have to ask at the reception for them to come and switch it on.
The hostel was really nice - it's actually located in a hotel. The 4 bed dorm was actually a hotel room made of two adjoining rooms sharing one bathroom. The rooms are really big, but there aren't any lockers to store your stuff when you're out. In the hotel, there's a shop selling souvenirs and everyday stuff as well as a KTV. It's located close to the train station which is good for when you arrive/leave, but it also means that it's noisy at night time.
It was like staying in a hotel but at hostel prices. Our room was really nice and clean - only downside was that there wasn't a window but we were only there for one night. It's pretty far away from the metro and at least 20 mins from the train station (mainly because the main entrance is being renovated and you have to walk all the way around). Staff don't speak much English, but we got by - maybe have the phrase "I have a reservation for the hostel" handy.
When we arrived， we decided to change from a dorm room to a private room - no problem。 Staff were nice。 Food in the restaurant was tasty。 Bathroom was a little smelly， like most Chinese hotels。
The hostel was okay - definitely not a party hostel - but there were lots of people hanging around in the common room in the evening if you want to make friends and there's always the burmese mountain dog to be your friend! Bathrooms were a little dirty/smelly - similar to other places in China. I can imagine they get quite busy when the hostel is fully booked as there are only two communal showers. Luckily we never had a problem but the hostel didn't seem so busy.
The hostel is in an apartment block - it's pretty strange. I prefer a proper hostel with a bar. The toilet often got blocked, but it was fixed quickly. There's was one bathroom and one en-suite bathroom. It's close to the metro and there are great views from the balcony.
The bathroom wasn't cleaned as much as I wanted. The room was a little small, compared to other hostels. It's hard to find at first, as everything is in Lijiang.
We liked staying at this hostel because of the facilities. The bar was a great place to have a few drinks, expecially on the roof terrace. The room was alright, but it didn't have a window so there was no air circulation and smells lingered.
The staff are really friendly and helpful. The breakfast is okay - try the chinese bread, it's much better than the sliced stuff! We went on the tour to the Great Wall at Mutianyu - it was very pleasant. We had a great day there.
The hostel has lots of character. The room was a little drafty, but the heating system ensured it was warm. The staff are friendly and a little crazy. Towels were not included in the room.

The hostel is great - lovely rooms, so clean and the staff are very friendly. They had many things on offer, such as sending postcards. The room was like a hotel room. We wish we could have tried out the sauna! Good location close to restaurants and shops.

The room was so cold, even with the heating on. The heating only warmed the top half of the room, so if you were on the top bunk it was too warm but on the bottom bunk it was too cold. The bathroom for our room was very small; the roof was low, there was a massive water boiler in there and it was very difficult to have a good shower. The bar was nice and warm though.
The hostel is in a good area - close to the bell tower, south gate and bar street. We were a little confused when we had to pay 100 yuan more than we expected but it turned out that this was a deposit for the key. (On arrival we were told it was a reservation fee and we thought it was because we'd booked through hostel world.)
Crazy hostel, reception is in a seperate building to the rooms! about 10 mins from U-bahn! theres quite a few bars and restaurants in the area too. was good enough for 1 night, but linen was not included in the price, unlike it says in the description! but only 1.90€.
