Was here for 4 nights, staff was very informative and friendly, good luck finding a cheaper place! This place is like 2 buildings away from Guilin's famous rice noodles... best noodles I had in china!! Their cat is cool to and they make a fire under your table if your cold

Awesome place! staff member very helpful. Excellent location for food and market . They only take cash no ATM. Cross from the Hostel is a bar so weekend very noisy. Other then that, I will come back. Yes, they do offer tour guide for Lil River, Rice Terraces and Yangshuo.

A good youth hostel, with friendly English-language staff and good, clean rooms. The restaurant is quite good as well, with pretty good breakfast. My only slight complaint is that the location is slightly noisy.

On sunday we made dumplings, nice!...

Overall positive experience, if your looking to meet people though I...

“Ask for front facing of the hostel if possible, away from the noisy school at the rear. Also, no lift so try for a lower level.”
