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.

Customer review

28 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We signed up for a tour of the Dragon Back Rice Terraces with them. They told us we would be in a separate group since we have 6 people. Instead, we got stuck on a tour with 25 other people on a big bus. The tour guide we were assigned to was rude to us because we asked a few questions and didn't want to pay extra to see a tourist-trap show. I would recommend finding someone else to help you do the rice terraces instead of booking it through the hostel. The rooms were also a little dark, damp and the room smelled of Chinese food. Also the toilets clog easily.

25 April 2010 Kimberley would recommend this property

Liked: this was a god send after a traumatic ride from the airport. we were able to curl up in the DVD room and watch a free movie under some blankets, in a cozy couch with pork noodle soup brought into us. that night there was a friday night bbq on, which was amazing and more than we could consume, great value for money, and the staff make you feel like close friends. :)

Liked: i've stayed here for 5 nights. absolutely clean n friendly staff. they will try they level best to help u, even it takes them almost 1 hour to find appropriate cabel to transfer ur photos!! i am absolutely loving this place. although it is slightly out from 'places-must-to visit' but it worth every penny...near shopping mall (so, easy to find foods), bus stop to yangshou just right in front of the hostel, staff is very friendly n helpful..what's more to ask? =)

Andrew Whitaker

28 March 2010 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: Really helpful staff who were fantastic.The location is perfect for anyone who is calling in at Guilin mainly to get to Yangshuo - its very close to the train station and bus stations, and the staff were great in walking to the nearest bus stop (1 min away) to catch a bus to Yangshuo. However, if your wanting to see much in Guilin the location is out of the way and its a long walk to any of the main attractions. I didn't mind this, but others may find it an issue.I'd definitely recommend Wada to other travelers.

Liked: The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, and there was a great atmosphere (like a BBQ every Friday to hang out and get to know other guests). It isn't in the very heart of touristy Guilin, but it is very close and easily accessible by bus or cheap taxi ride. I'd definitely recommend Wada.

Michael Gannon

11 February 2010 Michael would recommend this property

Liked: Extremely friendly staff. Free but limited internet - generally a plus. Foam mattresses, albeit thin, a big improvement on the standard rock-hard Chinese innerspring. Negatives: 5. coldish in rooms; 4. bathroom primitive - reasonable hot water system over shower negated by gaps above and below cubicle door which, combined with open-by-default outer door of bathroom, creates a cold breeze whenever hot water is flowing. 3. high food and drink prices, but there is heaps of street food just out the door.. 2. absence of time-honoured Chinese system of the kai shui hu - there is a small, office style water cooler with.... 200ml glasses (lol!), but I suppose you can BYO plastic water bottle. 1. The big one - a smoke-filled common room\bar. It was actually a comment by someone else about another Guilin hostel that "you can smoke in the common room" which propelled by away from that establishment and towards Wada. Well, such is life. Overall, a good, cheap stopover option, if you don't need lounge facilities or don't mind the stench of cigarette smoke, ash and butts. Most of the other negatives can be got around. BTW, when I listed "cleanliness" as below average, that was only due to dirty, smokey air in the lounge. The rooms themselves are fine and clean in all respects.

Disliked: Michael left no negative feedback.
