We booked this following the reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. The location is excellent, just two minutes from the river, five minutes from the lakes and you can walk out the door and choose from unlimited restaurants. The staff is what makes this place, they are young, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Communicate with them was excellent,...

A great location, surrounded by markets and restaurants, and quite a nice little room too (twin share private). They offer some very affordable tours - of which we did the DIY Longji rice paddy hike and Li River bamboo boat ride.

I cant fault this place. Everything was great. The reception staff were so helpful with everything, booking tours, taxis, things to do in Guilin and Yuangzhou. They even walked us down to the bus stop to make sure we caught the right one. The location is right in the Centre on the mall. The rooms were bright and very clean...

Rarely have I found a place so easy to communicate with. I have 2 rooms booked here for mid may 2017. I wanted to organise day tours through this hostel. They were amazing. Fast accurate responses to my many questions and in excellent English. Cannot wait to meet these great ambassadors for Guilin...thanks folks....fantastic work!!

We had a wild trip into Guilin. A delayed flight caused a frantic hustle between airports in Shanghai and while going through security my bag got left opened so when my bags arrived in Guilin, individual items from my bag were laying out on the luggage conveyer belt - minus my iPad. The staff at Central called the airport, spoke...

We had two private rooms booked in this hotel and we are very happy with our experience. The hotel is very well located, you can basically walk everywhere from the hotel. There are many restaurants closely and also a night market. The rooms are decent sized, with a nice bathroom and all amenities needed. The staff was very friendly and...

The reviews do not lie, this place was phenomenal! The staff were so friendly and helpful to us, recommending the best sights to see in the area and always greeting us with a smile! The 4 bunk room was very spacious with lots of storage area, and that bed was hands down the most comfortable I've slept on in China!...

Great food, great staff, great rooms, great location and it's cheap. Just do it and go there. The lobby is also very relaxing and was not crowded at all. The integrated restaurant has cheap but awesome food!

First & foremost, this hostel's breakfast food is not to be missed! It's the best western style breakfast I had in all of China - the banana & honey waffles alone are to die for! Hopefully that got your attention! Anyhow, on with the review. I stayed in a private double bedroom with a very reasonable rate. As I had...

This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Stayed 2 nights here before we moved to Yangshuo . Came back here again for another 3 nights stay, felt so much at home. Staff are sweet and helpful, whenever we needed help, they acted immediately. Room is spacious, clean comfortable king size bed with good bathroom. Most wonderful is that...
