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!
