Liked: They arranged an airport pick up, which was great because I arrived so late at night. They were very helpful about helping me plan onward travel and the room was quiet and clean.

Disliked: Not that it could be helped - but I had a room mate in the dorm who stayed on skype all night talking. The hostel arranged a raft trip on the river Li to Xingping and assured me that the views in the rain would still be worthwhile seeing.....this was not exactly true - the rain was so heavy that I mostly saw white mist and the boat trip which should have been over 2 hours was only an hour - and we were dropped off half way and transferred to a bus. Very disappointing.

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.
