Amazing Hostel, the rooftop bar is worth going for to meet other travellers and to enjoy the nights of Yangshuo. The bar has really beautiful view of the mountains and the atmosphere is very cool with awesome drinks and beer pong! :)

Really rockin' roof top bar- they always have great service, and tons of interesting people are always there. They've got delicious drinks, lots of games and a view to die for! Also they have a western toilet so if squatting isn't your thing you'll definitely feel right at home there. I recommend their exotic snake bai jiu, or a local...

Really liked staying here, nice location, you can book here for every attraction you want. Free water and a computer if you need one. The hosts are very helpful and English speakers. Good WiFi reception in the dorms, which is always good.

Te staff was nice and they had an amazing view from the rooftop bar. I recommend it but don't expect a clean place. Also it is very well...

We stumbled across this bar and spent the night playing beer pong and drinking delicious buckets. They have great happy hour specials. Best bar we have visited in China!! And we live in Guilin so we have a few to compare it to ;). Don't miss this place :)
