We stayed in this hostel for a week and loved it. Very centrally located and close to lots of attractions. We enjoyed a bike tour with the staff and watched a few movies on the big screen. Highly recommend!

It is a really nice hostel. They have clean rooms and common areas. The hostel is close to the river which is beautiful, especially during the night. The wifi connection is good. They also offer a food menu. Friendly staff.

Good visit. This hostel has an excellent location along the river. Close walking distance to the market and pedestrian street. The only downside was that the hostel was very noisy. In the early morning and late night you could hear everything through the walls. We visited during the National Holiday and there were a lot of families. You could hear...

In a very nice location next to the lakes - very nice to go out round them for a morning walk when people are practising taichi. Rooms were very clean and spacious, and showering and washing spaces were clean and close by. Communal area is cosy with good wifi, VPN, TV and huge pizzas. After a bit of exploration we...

The location is fantastic, near the lakes and the most important attractions of the city. The room was a little bit old but clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The quality-price ratio is very good!

Highly-recommended when staying in Guilin, close to Ronghu Lake, eateries close by. Staff speak good English, and are generally brilliant. Room itself very clean and comfortable, it overlooks the lake and trees. The street next to the place is pretty quiet, so no loud traffic noise. Absolutely brilliant price for what you pay, you get to mingle with other travelers...

Decent location, and well priced. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy. The hostel was very comfortable, with a very cool roof-top view. The staff super friendly. Definitely worth it. We took the rice paddy tour organized through the affiliate travel agency. Was a bit of a hassle with the number of bus change overs to even get going....

I booked this through the YHA website and it proved to be very good value - incredibly cheap at around Y30 a night. The reception staff were particularly helpful and spoke good English, which is not always the case with youth hostels in China. In March, the rooms were not fully booked, and I had only one other guest in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Here we have excellent facilities and warming staff. You may find it amazing that such a quiet and lovely place should exist in Guilin downtown. Roaming around the lake bank, you would meet cute statues of piggy and goose along the path, there are the local opera stage set on the river, squares full of dancing ladies in happiness. ... more   less
