The hostel is well named, it is indeed very centrally located, it is clean and good value for money. The staff are especially helpful. The bedrooms were clean and there is a good social area downstairs. Although I preferred Yangshuo this is a great base to explore Gui Lin. They do have a sister hostel in Yangshuo which is superb.

The room was really big and comfortable, even though there was some humidity in the air. More towels should be provided (at least one hand towel). Activities made available were very nice, as the dumpling making night. The staff, specially Kevina, was great.

Location is great, staff are friendly, and their English level is excellent. Not much to fault, but would be great if they offered more tours. Rooms are very good and clean for a hostel. No bar or lounge but the main room is very warm and welcoming.

The staff in this hostel is great and super helpful. They are truly concern about the guest and their experience traveling trough Guangxi. Rooms are clean and stylish. The location is great just a few meters away of the Sun & Moon pagodas and the River.

From the greeting in the reception, the constant smiles, fantastic coffee and smoothies, flawless service and just the great overall facilities in the hostel it may have been one of the best hostels I've visited. And for 60 yuan a night it's a bargain!

What you get is even better than what you see. We couldn't be more satisfied when we arrived at the hostel. It was really like the pictures we saw and all the atmosphere made it even better. The staff was very friendly, even though the English was not the best. They have a "café like" at the entrance hall where...

This hostel is really something. The place has all the benefits of an amazing hostel, with the facilities and cleanliness of a very very nice hotel. However, the star feature has got to be their amazing staff. The location, as the name suggests, is ideal... Right on the doorstep of the pedestrian street in Guilin, with many restaurants, bars, cafes...

Excellent hostel. Clean, modern yet rustic. Great restaurant and hang out spot in the lobby area. Had a healthy breakfast and coffee and a good night's sleep. Sadly only stayed one night. It's in a great little area with lots of restaurants, pubs and shops around. Definitely a recommended stay

We booked this hostel before leaving the UK and they sent detailed info about public transport from railway stations & airport, including address in Chinese. This worked out perfectly taking us straight to the door. The staff knew all the public bus routes to main attractions & wrote down destinations so we could show the driver where we wanted to...
