Customer review

With my spouse / partner

Backpacking / gap year

12 July 2010

Liked: The common areas were very nice: the bar, the outside area and the atmosphere was nice too. The staff were very nice and helpful, location is ok, but not central, but it's really easy to access by bus.

Disliked: The dorm we were in was not very nice. It seriously needed renovating. Also with the bed I was in, the aircon was blowing directly on me and my friend in the top bunk had it in his ear all night, it made a loud buzzing noise. There is one shower on the same floor, but we have to cross the communal area to get there, and the door doesn't lock and it's dirty. There are 2 more showers up some stairs that are gloomy and also dirty.

Sightseeing & culture

29 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff are absolutely amazing; willing to help you every step of the way and speak great English! We used Wada as a base and did day trips to Yangshao and Longsheng with the help of the hostel. They also have awesome breakfast for 20RMB, and lots of food around the hostel as well. Great common areas to relax in and escape the heat/rain (bring an unbrella to Guilin!). Would definately stay agian if I were to come back to Guilin.

Disliked: The hostel is a relatively pleasant 30 min walk out of town, not too bad though - that would be the ONLY downside to this hostel! Loved it.

Customer review

19 June 2010

Liked: There was not much that I could actually put that I liked about this property. The receptionist was terrible. She was rude from the first moment we arrived as she tried to pull a scheme where the 2 of us traveling together were in different rooms but rather than telling us that she said we were in a different room one night and would swap the next. She just could not do the math as she put 2 singles and a double set into the 4 bed room that than 2 double sets. From that point on she was terrible to deal with. The rice field trip is not worht taking with the hostel. FInd a different hostel to deal with on this... maybe then your tour guide will speak a small amount of english. Plus the cleaning staff dont even take the time to clean the dead mosquitos off the walls... a bit gross really. I mean to make the bed you would see the dead mozzie... but they do nothing about it. OK... Ill stop now, if I had another go I would stay else where...

Liked: The staff here were brilliant. Really genuinely helpful and friendly. The hostel is a bit out from the action in Guilin but it's a nice walk, cabs are cheap and there's plenty of buses. Our double room was clean, comfy and quiet. Nice chilled out place to stay. Thanks.

Dominic Rogers

18 May 2010 Dominic would recommend this property

Liked: The cute white kitten who lives in the communal area is great to play with but his litter tray is a bit smelly especially as its also the restaurant. A few mossie coils would be a good idea too. But staff are really nice and friendly and the manager is currently looking into what needs to be upgraded at Wada.

Louise Brasenell

06 May 2010 Louise would recommend this property

Liked: Very nice staff, a little out of the way but not much to do in the centre of Guilin anyway. Rooms were cleaned daily and the food in the bar was good. The bus to Yangshou goes right from over the road outside and the staff kindly helped us catch the right one as it was not written in english. Would recommend for a brief budget stay.
