Liked: Good value for money, friendly and helpfull staff . On the first night it was quite cold in the room, but double bed with ability to heat it helped a lot. Little bit bothered notice - to switch off the boiler when it it is not used.

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: Great hostel - clean, cheap, great atmosphere, free internet in the lobby and wireless, help booking tours, and they even had a fun BBQ on Friday night and most of the guests took advantage of that to meet each other and hang out. I'd definitely recommend it.

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.

30 October 2009 DAVID would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel was spacious and had a nice patio area to meet and greet people. There was a bar and food with free computers and wireless. The rooms were large and not cramped like some hostels. Overall, this was a good deal for the price. I also found the staff helpful and they all spoke English,

29 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Our flight from Chengdu arrived four hours late, so at 3 am we were looking for the hostel. Better directions are needed for travellers who are walking from the airport bus and dont use taxis!!! The hostel is out of sight of the road, through a large gateway, next to a building site. It took some finding.
