So far it's been a great stay! Staff is super helpful, the hostel is very new and clean, it just feels like home. Oh, and the beds, they're extremely comfortable. I highly recommend this hostel - it's one of the nicest I've stayed in, in China.

This hostel has been recently renovated and it's fantastic! The cafe when you enter is nicely designed and offers everything from western to Chinese food plus beers. Everything we ate was tasty! We stayed two nights in a dorm at the start and end of our visit to the region. Room and bathroom were incredibly clean and clearly very new....

The girls running this hostel are fantastic. They speak English very good and their commitment to help their customers is hard to beat. Everything is very clean and you have many options for food on the nearby streets in the evening.

Plus lots of power points to charge camera/phone/ipads etc. Also Free Wifi (and it...

Good hostel overall, the rooms are just perfect : large and comfy beds, A/C, curtains on the beds of the dorms. But it is a bit quiet if you want to meet other travelers. The only common space is a restaurant downstairs.

FYI Formerly known as Backstreet Hostel (as per guidebooks that are wont to quickly go out of date & instead of assisting lead you up the wild goose path) allied to the also well managed Wada hostels in both Guilin & Yangshuo. This is the revamped version. As central as you can get, as it says on the tin. The...
