    Hello, I am looking at booking to stay at this hostel for around 6 nights in June. I have no queries about the quality of the accommodation but just some other queries regarding the services they provide and contact details for the hostel. I had my reservations about visiting Guilin, and this is because of the uncertainty of how to reach the city and then get back to the airport. This worry is increased as the flight does not land in Guilin until 23:55. Also I assume that English is not widely spoken due to the more rural nature of the area although I know the main business is tourism. However, these are just assumptions. I feel reluctant to use taxis as I have never used them in China despite visiting twice before. I notice the hostel provides a shuttle to and from the airport. How would this be arranged for my inbound flight as I cannot find an email address to contact the hostel? Does anyone know of the email address? Is the airport shuttle provided by the hostel reliable? I am worried about this as I would be flying onto Beijing afterwards on an early flight of 8am. I also want to know about the excursions the hostel offers and the price of these. I am eager to visit the rice terraces and surrounding mountainous areas. Thanks, Michelle
