    Had an amazing stay in Guilin. The staff helped me book my trips to the Li River and Dazhai rice terraces. It has a nice lounge area with good AC which is good for meeting other travelers.

    THE ROOFTOP is stunning and the dumpling cooking class, we took part in, was a great experience. The stuff was super friendly and there English was on a high level, we also enjoyed spending an evening on the rooftop with them. The food was good with a lot of veggie options and the activities and toures offered by the hostel are well planned and also tailored for people traveling alone as well as for families (and everyone in between). Nothing to complain about - definitely recommend

    Awesome place to stay! The staff was great! They helped me book the Li River big boat cruise in advance since it was the May holiday. The pizza was really good, and there is a friendly little cat to greet you at reception.

    We stayed in a double private bedroom with bathroom. It was really nice, clean, and well equipped. the wifi works perfectly. The staff was really helpful and could speak and understand ok English. They helped with tours and taxi to airport. Make sure you booked your sunny breakfast one day before; it is totally worth it. We had dinner one time pizza, pasta, and french fries; no complains. Pizza was actually pretty good. 8 to 10 min walking downtown. Safe to walk at night. 100% recommended!

    We had a brilliant stay here. The staff are so lovely, friendly and helpful. They can help you organize any activities you want to do during your visit. Unfortunately there was a lot of rain during our stay but if you have to stay inside, this hostel is a good place to do so. They have a big screen for playing movies, a library of books, great WiFi and plenty of comfy couches. There’s a good variety on their menu and prices are great. I definitely recommend this hostel for your stay in Guilin!

    This hostel was great, if you are looking for Guilin as a 'base' when you visit this area. We booked here for 3 nights, but ended up sleeping one of the nights in a different hostel in Yangshou. Not because there was anything wrong with this hostel, only because the hostel is located in Guilin and not Yangshou. For the record, this hostel was way better than the popular 'sudder street' hostel in Yangshou.

    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.

    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.
