I was only one night here. It was perfect and I will recommend you to stay here. It's clean, cheep and real central to main city. The bed was good for well sleeping and no noise in this central place. If you like, you can get a breakfast as well.

Fantastic location next to the commercial pedestrian street, right in front of a pretty decent food court, steps away from the river and within easy walking distance of the twin pagodas park. All the staff speak English and are very helpful and motivated. Place is very clean, common room is pleasant. The little café and restaurant serves pretty hearty breakfasts...

Food downstairs was reasonably priced and delicious...

We had a private room and it was SMELLY! The room had an overwhelming odor of something I could not identify. The bathroom also smelled very strongly of sewer - it was bad enough that I found myself going in there trying to hold my breath as long as I could. The smells were so bad that I dreaded going...

Definitively like this place. It is centrally located and easy to reach by bus. The staff is very helpful and really nice. The dorms are new, spacious and very confortable with a bathroom attached. You can also do laundry free of charge. No fault on this one. 100% recommended.

Stayed in this hostel with 5 other friends in June 2016. We had a shared dorm with a private bathroom. It is a cheap hostel thats very clean, the staff is super friendly and overall has a good atmosphere. If I visit Guilin again in the future, would definitely stay here and highly recommend it to everyone!
