Nice and easily affordable hostel in one of the best places of china. Marvelous views on the rooftop. The negative point could be the difficulty to come accross with it, but it is just the first time.

Yangshuo used to be a backpacker hangout, and the reports that it has changed are true. BUT ... it is still a real treasure, and especially the alley that Showbiz is tucked into is a marvelous bit of Old China set against the backdrop of the giant karst hills. My family walked our luggage from where the van dropped us... More

I had a fantastic time at this hostel. it's hidden away down a back alley so the noise from the busy west street isn't loud. It's super close to bars and restaurants.

“Travelling solo, I'd recommend the dorms, they are really cheap and just as good as the rooms, Also the bathroom on 5th floor was just across the hall. it was no issue sharing. Although it might be a bit different in high season.”

“I guess asking to be on the highest floor would be the best option for views, but there is no elevator. Wouldn't have bothered me but if you don't want to climb a million stairs, ask for a lower level room.”
