Close from the railway station (walking distance), friendly stuff (they give me directions for all the places to see, making my stay very easy and comfortable), good food, cold beer, good atmosphere to meet people's and make friends, nice place, cleaness, the bad thing was I couldn't stay longer. I'm feel at home.

We had a private bedroom with four beds and an ensuite bathroom. It was really simple but very clean. The price was incredibly low and great value for us. The Wada girls are so friendly. One met us at the train station and walked us over, we participated in the Dumpling making evening and my daughter had so much fun...

The "Wada Girls" were extremely friendly - called me by name right away and were available day and night for assistance. Lovely! Cute hostel, a little run down and moldy in spots, but an overall pleasant experience.

We based ourselves here for one night as we would go for a week to the rice terraces in Tiantouzhai then to Yangshuo. They are located near the train station which is handy. The staff are very friendly and make every effort to help you and give the hostel a communal and fun atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Really beyond the expectations. The Wada Girls made my stay much more comfortable. Besides that, the hostel is well equipped and has a good environment to get the guests together. The hostel also arranges the main tours around the city.

Just left the Wada Guilin after a three-night stay with some friends. The service was fantastic, staff had perfect English and were also happy to practice our Chinese with us, and they gave us many recommendations for activities. The hostel itself is clean and very reasonably priced. Attracts a lot of interesting people so is a great environment for connecting...
