Considering the cheap price, this hostel is very nice: one of the best I've been to in China so far. The staff speaks English, some activities are organized for customers and they offer good cooing in the living area! I highly recommend this place

This used to be backstreet boys hostel apparently. Recently refurbished completely, this hostel has the best facilities we have experienced to date. Dorm rooms, 4 bunks, have plenty of space, beds have a lockable cupboard and shelf within the bed area and are fully enclosed giving the feeling of a wonderful cocoon. Excellent hot water and top quality wifi access...

This is one of the best hostels I have ever experienced. Location wise, the name says it all - it is central. We got a private double room that was better than several hotel rooms I have seen. But, it is the staff that really make this place special. They helped us arrange tours to Yongshuo and Longshen rice fields...

To be honest I have no idea why they call it hostel and not an hotel. This place is soooo good. First of all they all speak English ( tnx God) second, the rooms are very cozy with all kind of extra like electric sheet tv with American up to date movies and the overall feeling in the room is...

We ignored the cardinal rule of choosing a restaurant - don't eat in an empty place. So we deserved what we got: soggy, uncooked pizza base and flavourless chicken and broccoli. The staff were lovely and carefully followed printed directions to craft a good margherita.

The Hostel was really nice, located in a central area near both shopping and sights like Elephant Trunk Hill park and the Sun and Moon Padogas. The staff was friendly and spoke great english. A great and affordable place to stay!

This hostel is very central in Guilin. You step outside and you're in the main street. All attraction visits are at close walking range. The hostel staff is very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast is very good. The room and bathroom are AMAZING (and clean). Best one I had on my 4 month trip. The common area is very nice....

So far it's been a great stay! Staff is super helpful, the hostel is very new and clean, it just feels like home. Oh, and the beds, they're extremely comfortable. I highly recommend this hostel - it's one of the nicest I've stayed in, in China.
