    It’s good. I like this location as a part time visitor to Guilin. Not in the hub of the tourist zone in the heart of downtown. But a ten to twelve minute taxi away. But a nice zone in its own right. Has all you want. Wifi that works at good speeds, soft bunk mat for China, not narrow bunk, reading light and plug jacks, privacy curtains, bathroom ensuites, strong AC in rooms, good breakfast. Big. So don’t misjudge the price. It’s ample with homemade dense brown bread. Big lockers.

    There are a lot of perks to staying at Wada: free towels, can use their washing machine for free after 4pm, they have WiFi with a VPN and provide drinking water. The beds are nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. Some parts could do with some TLC as there is broken furniture and an old broken bike in the outdoor communal area. It's a ten min bus journey from Guilin center (very commercial) but it is near the bus stop to get to the rice paddies and to beautiful Yangshuo!
