Liked: We stayed there one night transfering from Guilin Airport to Yongshuo and the location was convenient as the bus station is easily reachable by public bus. For exploring Guilin, I'm not sure their location is as convenient... The staff was particulary sympathic.

Liked: Very friendly, honest, and helpful staff. The common areas and the rooms are clean and nicely renovated. Great value for money, and definitely recommended.

Disliked: There isn't really anything to dislike. The location may be a bit far from the central downtown area, but taxis are plentiful and are relatively cheap and fast, so it isn't a big problem.

Liked: the hostel was freezing but did have heated blankets :D

Disliked: no hot water in the room. the shower head did not hook onto the wall. on many occasions I asked for help in getting to places and changing money to Hong Kong Dollars for the next part of my trip, the information given was either completely wrong or just not helpful.

13 December 2010 Surina would recommend this property

Liked: Great hostel. Our room was clean and spacious and the mattress was heated, which was awesome! The staff are so helpful and a great source of information. We booked the Li River cruise through the hostel and it was well organised and decently priced. Even though we stayed a night in Yangshuo, we were still able to leave our luggage in Wada for free. Great communal area, with a really nice outdoor area where there were lounge chairs and a pool table, and a simple but nice restaurant. Wifi can be accessed in rooms.

Disliked: We would have loved to have a kettle in our room but hot water is provided at the water machine in the reception area. If you do book the Li River cruise, don't have the lunch option. The restaurant was subpar and the food was plain but expensive. If you're really hungry, just wait until until you arrive in Yangshuo. Location is not too bad: it's only a 15 minute walk from the train station.

20 November 2010 Yaseen would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They were always smiling and having fun. They even came out with an umbrella as I arrived in the rain. The dorms were clean and very comfortable (better mattresses and duvets in South China for some reason), The bar does great (if not a bit lethal 6.7%) dark Beerlao. The tour down the Li river to Yangshuo was good value at 120 Yuan, and a really pleasant journey. The hostel is opposite a mall with great food (they recommend a place for the rice noodles speciality which did not disappoint) and they have a discount card for the cinema there.

Disliked: Only very minor things like the internet is a bit slow, they have a washing machine, but no dryer, it's a bit of a way out of town, but there are frequent buses going from right outside the hostel, and it's only a 30 minute walk.
