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.

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...
