    Booked the wrong night and arrived late. The receptionist was very helpful though. Everything was full, but they helped me sort something out. Ended up paying double which I though was a bit extortionate and exploitative of the situation but it was okay. Very good location. As far as travel information goes theyre above average for a chinese hostel but were still ignorant to the new bus situation in Guilin. Okay food. We happened to go to their xingping location for lunch, but wouldnt recommend.

    Everything was perfect. It was full of western people and the staff looked stressed and they could be nicer and more helpful. The organized trips to the Longji rice terraces were complicated to understand how they work.

    The Hostel was refurbishing the lobby when we stayed there and I was impressed to see how quickly it was finished (2 days). The result is very nice :) Great view from the rooftop especially at sunset (no bar there). There is a big screen in the chill out next to reception (great for watching the world cup). We had to change room several times during our stay and all were recently updated. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend!

    I got screwed because I booked the wrong one, in Guilin and they accepted to changed the booking but for the same price. When I arrive I realized that my friend who had a private single room paid exactly as me and I was in a dorm. I paid 140 instead of 100 !! The girls are the receptions are a bit rude, the atmosphere is inexistent. Location is easy to have 10/10 as the city is small enough to reach every place in 5 minutes. Was clean by the way. And the scooters prices are correct.
