I made a booking in this "hotel" more than a month ago through Booking.com website. I did it in advance, as I will be travelling during the first week of October and I know it will be quite crowded because of national holidays. Suddenly, one month later, they send me an email asking me to cancel the booking and making...

We stayed in the Bamboo House for our honeymoon in China. They kindly upgraded us to a bigger room and were very accommodating. There were great Jacuzzis in each room, but we didn't use due to the questionable water. Ideal location for going out on West Street and they set us up with scooters rentals, which was a BLAST.

This hostel is tucked away in an ally, just off West street. Its worth taking the time to find it. The staff is very kind and helpful. They offer many different tours and activities. Such as rafting. If you sign up with them, they will walk you to the bus themselves so you don't get lost or miss the bus....

I've stayed here twice with friends in December 2010 and at the same month in 2012. The beds are some of the bestie experienced and Tao and his wife are great hosts and the breakfasts are good value. This has proven to be a great location in the middle of the old section of town.

The location is actually negative because it can get very loud at night. Nevertheless, the main problem with this hotel is that the rooms are very small for what you pay for. The walls are made of concrete, so you feel like you are in a prison. Furthermore, the rooms can be a bit dusty as well. I have no...

This hotel is right off West Street in Yangshuo. This is where all the tourist go to in Guilin and Yangshuo. The room is nice and clean; no frills. It's good value for what you pay. They can rent bikes and tell you where to go to enjoy scenery. They can also arrange tours for you.

Great location at the edge of pedestrian area, I have said in the title rooms are small, in actual fact ours was large enough (delux double) but too much space taken by Jacquzzi bath and separate shower cubicle . Nice to have balcony and staff speak good English and are charming, helpful and welcoming! They also arranged our airport taxi...

Bamboo House owns several properties in Yangshuo. I stayed at nr. 12 Longmu Alley last August 2013 I found this to be an excellent location, central but surprisingly away from noisy West Street. Helpful staff and great value rooms, negotiation about roomrates recommended. Not all rooms have the same features, make sure to look at all available rooms before making...

We stayed two nights in this hotel. Admittedly, I am not a backpacker, and maybe that is the clientele that the hotel serves. The first room that they gave us smelled so strong of mold, and since my son has asthma, I immediately switched rooms. Our room had a sign that read "the police prohibit prostitution, gambling, and drunkenness." That...

“Check if your A/C unit is working properly. Mine was broken for one night and room gets very damp and hot. Good points to the management for solving the problem within hours of mentioning it the following morning.”
