    Great location, really nice lounge/bar/social area. Free laundry service with rooftop drying space (and a great view) was a nice touch.

    No doubt a perfect ten. Super friendly, patient, and welcoming staff. Very comfortable matresses! After nearly two months of sleeping on the wafer thin pancakes in other hostels around the country, I had some of my best sleeps at Ming Palace. Keep up the great work. This place is a gem.

    This hostel was incredible and so nice. It’s more like a hotel then a hostel. The staff were super friendly and helpful on information for tours and getting around. I booked two tours with them and both were great! The food at the hostel was good. One of the nicer hostels I’ve stayed at (especially in China). Would recommend!

    Great location with nice, helpful staff who speak good English. It was a little quiet but that suited me as it was mostly a stop off while visiting Dazhai and Yangshuo. I would stay here again if I was in Guilin!

    Had such a nice stay here! Staff were helpful at booking taxis etc, and were really friendly (language barrier, but always managed to communicate). Rooms are clean and basic! Bit annoying with the security key operating the electricity as the AC goes off when you leave so room is roasting, but we got around it by leaving one of our keys in. Hostel food is unreal (banana pancakes and pizza SO GOOD), and they even did a free dumpling making class! Amazing value for money
