07 May 2013 Robin would recommend this property

Liked: Nice enough place with good location right across the street from the tran station - specially since the only good thing you would want to do in Guilin is to leave the city for the amazing places dotting the surrounding countryside. The staff was really nice and helpful, the dorms was clean and the beds comfy.

Disliked: Once you got out of the rooms, the whole place had a bad smell of sewage and the common areas was pretty dirty at times. Also, the food was bland and not very good value compared to the street stalls down in the alleys surrounding the place. And I guess the worst thing of all - we realized when we changed from a dorm to a double room that the same key fitted in both doors. That's not very secure!

Liked: Close to the train and bus station, nice common room.

Disliked: Hard to find, lacks good directions on this site. Still quite far (20-25 min) tot walk to the city center, although bus stop is close. Staff was mainly busy managing the many check-ins and check-outs, not extremely helpful. Had to wait 20 minutes for breakfast.

Liked: I was having visa trouble and the staff put themselves out to help. Good food, relaxed atmosphere and must be the cheapest dorm & private room deals on this side of China, even if it's only an off season thing. Good location 2 minutes walk to train & bus station.

Liked: The decor. and the friendliness of staff. The food was nice too!

Disliked: The bathroom was very small and our room had mould in it which was a little off putting (although we adopted a backpackers view of it's only 2 nights!). The location is a little hard to find as you have to go round the back of some buildings to find it!

Liked: Almost everything

Disliked: Sometimes different people from the staff give different answers to the same question (one of them indicate me a wrong place for the airport shuttle bus, but another one gave me the correct answer). The wifi doesn't work in the rooms. I had to insist to get my towel !

Liked: It's a great location, very clean, relaxing and the staff are very friendly.

Disliked: The food is not so good :0(. Maybe everyone stays other places or just uses Guilin as a stop over before Yangshou but it's a bit dead regards atmosphere. Not the best place for meeting people.
