Liked: Probably the nicest people I've ever met in my whole trip in China. The staff were very cheery and always helpful when their assistance was needed. You can really feel the great vibe and that everyone loves their job there. +It was also very close from the train station, about 10 mins, so I avoided the taxi touts and used the walking directions the hostel provided. For the price you pay, it's amazing what you get from this place. Will tell all my friends about you guys!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The best hostel i've stayed so far. they provided really good food and organize fair enough tours, especially the rice terraces tour by its own. the most impressive point is the girls there, they made the place perfect. I like the location, it's not in the city center which usually is more expensive and noisy, but very convenient to the downtown which only costs 1rmb by local bus. Definitely highly recommend this hostel to every traveler.

Liked: the stuff was very helpful! In addition, the hostel was very clean and I never felt that good in an hostel in china before - and I've seen a lot! The location is not an issue at all, as line 10 is going frequently to the bus station close by (2 min walk from Wada hostel).

Liked: This hostel has a low key but fun loving vibe to it that I haven't seen since Costa Rica. The employees that work here are absolutely awesome. They speak English fairly well (if not extremely well) and are hard working despite the long hours they put in. The staff has been extremely friendly, helpful and fun. Everything was clean and information was easily available. This hostel goes above and beyond.

Disliked: I honestly can't think of anything.

Liked: The free coffee was a nice welcome gesture (and it was a proper coffee). There was a tv and dvd player in the private double room and the shower was phenomenal.

Disliked: The location wasn't great unless you were only passing through Guilin via the bus station/ train station.

Liked: Easy to get there from train station, nice location a little outside of the touristy area(but still only a 15 minute bus ride from city centre). Nice common room with Wii, pool table etc. Close to a big shopping mall/shop complex with a big supermarket on the basement level. Fruit vendors/farmers market just outside in the mornings with OK prices. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Disliked: The BBQ on fridays for 30 wasn't really worth it. Not alot of local beer in the bar. Breakfast same as anywhere else and thus not worth it in my opinion, you can go for some nice steamed dumpling buns further down the street tho, 5 buns for 2,5 Yuan.

Liked: We are 2 girls from England who stayed in a dorm room at Wada. The rooms were really clean and the showers were attached separately to each type of room. The staff are really friendly and the tours are reasonably priced (for example to the rice fields). Everyone really went out of their way to make their hostel a home. The atmosphere was amazing and the layout and overall imagine of the hostel is fantastic. Thanks for such a wonderful time -Tequila Sunrise and Cuba Libre!
