Awesome place! staff member very helpful. Excellent location for food and market . They only take cash no ATM. Cross from the Hostel is a bar so weekend very noisy. Other then that, I will come back. Yes, they do offer tour guide for Lil River, Rice Terraces and Yangshuo.

A good youth hostel, with friendly English-language staff and good, clean rooms. The restaurant is quite good as well, with pretty good breakfast. My only slight complaint is that the location is slightly noisy.

The door rooms were spacious, beds big and great bathroom. The location is good not great. Free laundry and drying area was a major bonus and the staff answered all my questions however they aren't overly friendly. One negative about the hostel was that there was no atmosphere whatsoever. Overall positive experience, if your looking to meet people though I...

The location is quite central, the room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was also a good selection of Chinese and Western food for good prices. The tours that they offered were also well-organised and great value for money.

I've stayed in this hostel for 2 nights, in a private room. The room was huge, very clean and has a A/C that gets the job done! The staff is helpful, and provides useful tips on getting to several locations in and around the city using public transport. The hostel has a bar which serves breakfast and where you can...
