The rooms are clean and beds are softer than the usual in China, which is nice. They have a nice menu against good prices and a wide range of choices, including the drinks. The staff is happy and friendly. The girls will help you with anything and their English is really good. Besides this, the location is central with all...

The rooms are clean and beds really comfortable. The staff are so nice and amazingly helpful with tours or onward travel plans. The food is awesome if you can't be bothered to go out but equally there are great places nearby! You must stay here.

If you have the right expectations, Wada Hostel is pretty good in its value and location. We only spent one short night at Wada and it was exactly as we expected. The room (we reserved a private room) was small and clean. Very basic amenities. The only negative is that the window didn't lock. We used one of our folded...

The rooms are clean and modern, the common areas are fun and the price is on the cheap side. Most important is the staff who do their best to make you feel at home. The location is great too, just one bus stop away from the high speed rail / long distance bus station.

As a base for the exploration of Guilin Wada Hostel is a safe bet for any traveller. With a bus stop close enough to get to the main tourist areas, the hostel also has got a great communal atmosphere, with great facilities and the food menu is top class for a hostel. The bunkbeds come with curtains for privacy which...

Wada Hostel is such a wonderful place. I highly recommend this to all kinds of travelers out there. My friend and I were worried about the food in China but Wada Hostel has the best food here in Guilin especially if you love freshly cooked homemade food. The chicken broccoli pizza was amazing and the potato fries. The staff are...

This hostel is amazing. The wada girls are so helpful and kind and will help you with absolutely anything you ask. The room was perfect for the four of us sharing. The bunkbeds are comfortable and have electric blankets which are brilliant in winter. There are two lockers per bed; a big one for your bags and a small one...

Full disclosure: this property has a sign posted that the "Wada girls" (reception staff, etc) receive a small bonus for every 100% review, so the scores here are inflated because we really like the staff. Even still, this hostel was brilliant and may deserve the top scoring in Guilin. The weekly unlimited barbecue for 50 kuai was as delicious as...

Very good food. Salads are fresh and staff very friendly. We did not stay at Wada's but came for lunch after the disapointment of other locations around Guilin. The area is interesting and to say something, very chinese but they spoke great english and had a good playlist. Very recommended 👌👌
