About The Cosy Garden

The Cosy Garden is everything you had expect from its namesake, a warm welcome and a cosy getaway to relax from the stresses and chaos of the big Chinese cities. Why not swap the neon lights of West Street for the warm glow of fire flies and the town's disco music for the smoothing sounds of frogs as you enjoy the true Chinese countryside in its timeless glory. Together with our sister hostel Trippers Carpe Diem, we are the 2 countryside hostels in a scenic and relaxing environment with a very beautiful walk along the Li-river right into Yangshuo’s entertainment area.

The Cosy Garden offers:

- Beautiful and relaxing environment with stunning views out over the paddy fields of the village
- Cultural stay amongst the local villagers
- Easy access to the center, 15-20min Li-river walk or just a 7 min bike ride with free bikes after 4.00pm.
- Front terrace with pool-table and a one-stop reception/tours desk/bar area with espresso coffees, wines and Belgian Beers.
- A comfy TV- lounge filled with bean bags and sofas where laziness is encouraged.
- Bright rooms with comfy beds, private bathrooms with rain shower & western toilets.
- Maximum security with smart card access to the front door and rooms with 24hrs security surveillance and guard.

With starting from April 2014:

- Family style dinners when enough people sign up in cooperation with our Carpe Diem Hostel next-door with cheap, local, sumptuous and delicious buffet!
- Guest Kitchen with all-you-can-eat healthy, fresh and local breakfast buffet each morning until 11.00am (flexible though) for just 20Y per person.
- Outdoor terrace, garden and indoor lounge where you can have your breakfast, lunch or dinner served as well.

Laundry service / bike-scooter rental / airport transfers / extensive travel information off super friendly, enthusiastic and helpful multilingual staff. No curfew, no lockout.

Please do note:

Whilst close to the center, our B&B is not really suitable for people who wish to party in town every night. Our staff works very hard to have a very respectful and peaceful vibe without the drunken atmosphere offered elsewhere. Our goal is to make you feel like at home and will provide you with a great social atmosphere, as well as giving you the opportunity to have a good sleep after a busy day of sightseeing. This is a social hostel however not a party place. There are no clubs in our village so you can get a good night sleep. For a more active night check out Trippers Carpe Diem with its cosy deck and lounge bar just a 1 minute walk away.
Looking forward to meeting you here!

Team Cosy.

Location Information

The Cosy Garden
36 Shi Ban Qiao Village
541900 Yangshuo, Guangxi, China
?????? ???36 ???? ?????? 541900

The Cosy Garden is set in the lush green valley of ShiBanQiao, 1.4km North of the old center of Yangshuo with its lively bar and shopping scene at a perfect distance. It takes about 15-20 min beautiful walk along the Li-river to the old town center and entertainment area along the same river. By bicycle (free with us after 14.00) it just takes 8 minutes and a car max 5.

The village has remained unspoilt by tourism, the locals still go about their daily business tending to their crops whilst keeping a watchful eye on the water buffaloes as they meander around the village, dogs run wild, grandparents sit on porches playing with their grandchildren, simple daily life in all its beauty.
