Liked: I like the patio area and the air-conditioned bar area.

Disliked: There is mold all over and perhaps they painted over it to disguise this but the smell is horrendous and it can't be good for your health. Also, the bathroom wouldn't drain properly and was flooded after each shower.

Liked: They have great and friendly staff. They have clean room and sink inside. The Bad sheet is clean and smells good. Actually this place is quite easy to reach, you should go to Hongkong Hotel and then turn left, right you got the last bust station you'll find Wada Hotel in front of. A bit difficult to ask local people cause they dont speak english and no care with this hostel

Disliked: The bath room in the first floor a bit dirty, my friend said she found a small insect in not. But the bathroom in the second floor is pretty fine with hot and cool water. They also have a space to hang and dry up your laundry too

Liked: Staff were so nice. They provided us with an excellent service. They were so very helpful. Not a bad location. good bus service into town. rooms were clean (could have done with a lick of paint but nothing dreadful just a bit run down) beds super comfy and very quiet air conditioning. We had a great time here and on fridays they do a bbq for all the guests. the food was lovely. Had a good time staying here and would recommend to opther travellers.

Disliked: We had a few minor problems eg tv didnt work at first and lock on window was broken which made us feel a little unsecure leaving our belongings but staff coulnt do enough and moved us to a different room whilst they fixed the problem. Overall we had a good stay. Drainage of shower water could have been quicker but nothing major.

Liked: NIce setup for common areas and bar. Very easy to find from train station and perfect if you are just overnighting here (e.g. train from Xi'an then heading to Yangshou). It's a good hostel to stay at for longer periods as well but its not as central as you may want (but its not too far out).

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff are really friendly and the place is nicely set up. The twin rooms are amazing. Super comfy beds.

Disliked: The 4 bed dorm room is a bit of a hit and miss with a damp smell. When we mentioned about it to the staff (plus the fact that the A/C wasn't working that well) they upgraded us free of charge to the twin room.

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.

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.
