I spent a weekend at Wada. It's kind-of the ideal hostel. The staff is super-helpful, will help you arrange local tours (at great prices), and also cooks. The Wada bar features some of the freshest Western food I've had in China; beautiful omlettes, fresh Kale juice, and hearty English breakfast. All of these are reasonably priced and come quickly out...

After 3 months of traveling non-stop in China, Wada was our favorite hostel. I sprained my ankle shortly before we arrived, and the Wada staff was so caring and helpful. They gave me ice when needed. Everyone spoke excellent English and for the first time we felt like we could ask literally any question and be completely understood and completely...

Wada hostel in Guilin and the sister hostel in Yangshuo are by far the best hostels I stayed in China. The staff was super friendly and helpful and speaks English fluently. We had to cancel on night on a very short notice due to train delay and they didn't charge us for the cancellation. When we left, they spontaneously arranged...

I stayed at both Wada Hostels (Guilin and the DT Yangshuo) for a total of 5 days. The staff were extremely helpful, kind and so cheerful in both places. The food at the hostel with a full western menu was pretty good too - I particularly enjoyed the avocado pasta. The dorm rooms had the beds attached to the wall...

The assisted us with queries and gave helpful advice regarding tours and transport options. As we stayed for a few days at Wada, Yangshou, they arranged the accommodation there as well. Most of...

This place is like an island of the Western world inside Guilin... but it's mainly for foreign students. Having said that, we really enjoyed the change of pace from the city surrounding it. The food was excellent. Pool table was quite worn.

We arrived from Nanning to a warm welcome at reception, where we were given information about the free shuttle service they provide and the activities that were on in the hostel during our stay. The beds are so comfy, and the aircon is great. The food is amazing, especially the humous! The people who work here are great and will...
