    This place was wonderful! Lin/len (spelling) at the desk was awesome, as well as the other staff. If you're going to the terraces I highly recommend the tour. Tried to do it on my own, and didn't really save any money and only got to spend an hour at the park before having to catch the last bus out.

    Sky Palace was a bit more of a family place than I expected but the common room and dorm rooms were very comfortable and the food was excellent.

    Sad that I wasn't in Guilin any longer and it rained during my only full day, because this was a very nice place. The terrace was giant, like the whole hostel is kinda like one big terrace, it's great. There's loads of seating and good food, and for a four bedroom dorm, it was very big, with a good ensuite. Will definitely come again when I inevitably come back to Guilin. Peace.

    The staff all spoke very good english, they were very helpful and friendly. Special thanks to receptionist Lori! The room's AC could've been a little better but overall it was fine. It's in a busy street and with easy access to many shops and facilities.
