Liked: The best thing about the hostel is the friendly and extremely helpful staff. I like that all the dorm rooms are small (4 beds) and that they have private bathrooms so you are only sharing with 3 other people. The Wifi is pretty good, and you can get on Facebook which is cool. There's also a fantastic huge farmer's market right near the hostel.

Disliked: Lots of mosquitoes got in our room somehow.

Liked: Lets start with the directions....they were easy to follow which mean't after a long train ride, i got to the hostel with no fuss. Upon arriving i was greeted by a happy member of staff at the reception, her English was very good and we shared a few jokes along with the usual travel banter. The check in was simple and i was then shown to my dorm by another member of staff. The dorm was clean and spacious and the en-suite shower room was very good also. I liked the bed and the air con was great for the somewhat 'sticky' Guilin weather. Later i was ready to start my exploration of the city and it's sites, back to the reception where i got all the information i needed of how to get to these places, prices and other things i may enjoy around the city. The dumpling making party was a huge success, everyone mingling and having fun, the staff were also brilliant to hang out with and know how to enjoy themselves. I could go on for longer but my conclusion is this: If you're going to Guilin, save time and effort searching hostels and just stay here, you will not be disappointed! Great job WADA!!!

Liked: This hostel is located in a very good point, 10 mins waling to the train station and the stop of shuttle bus from the airport, big supermarket is 2 mins walking from the hostel, No. 10 takes you to anywhere you want. Super friendly staff are always ready to help you. Fair enough price for the tour, especially the rice terraces tour organized by the hostel. Highly recommend.

Liked: Very VERY helpful staff. Spoke great English and were very patient. The bar was pretty hip n happening, and although the hostel isn't downtown, there is a bus that stops directly in front of the hostel going there. Easy walk to the train station.

Disliked: nothing....well drinks are a bit overpriced, but this is usual for hostel bars
