The rooms are clean and modern, the common areas are fun and the price is on the cheap side. Most important is the staff who do their best to make you feel at home. The location is great too, just one bus stop away from the high speed rail / long distance bus station.

As a base for the exploration of Guilin Wada Hostel is a safe bet for any traveller. With a bus stop close enough to get to the main tourist areas, the hostel also has got a great communal atmosphere, with great facilities and the food menu is top class for a hostel. The bunkbeds come with curtains for privacy which...

Wada Hostel is such a wonderful place. I highly recommend this to all kinds of travelers out there.

This hostel is amazing. The wada girls are so helpful and kind and will help you with absolutely anything you ask. The room was perfect for the four of us sharing. The bunkbeds are comfortable and have electric blankets which are brilliant in winter. There are two lockers per bed; a big one for your bags and a small one...

Full disclosure: this property has a sign posted that the "Wada girls" (reception staff, etc) receive a small bonus for every 100% review, so the scores here are inflated because we really like the staff. Even still, this hostel was brilliant and may deserve the top scoring in Guilin. The weekly unlimited barbecue for 50 kuai was as delicious as...

Very good food. Salads are fresh and staff very friendly. We did not stay at Wada's but came for lunch after the disapointment of other locations around Guilin. The area is interesting and to say something, very chinese but they spoke great english and had a good playlist. Very recommended 👌👌

Wada Guilin is the best hostel / hotel I've been to in a month in China. The rooms are simple but you will find everything that you need, including a safe and a hair dryer! The hostel is an incredibly warm place: welcoming common areas, great travelers, good food and drinks (don't miss on their smoothies and their banana muffins!),...

The Wada Hostel is a really nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff whom speak proper English. The 4-person room looks cozy and the beds are comfortable. And there are some nice activities; we had a lot of fun at the barbecue and even got a late night concert from the guard when we were in the lobby drinking beers...
