Pleasant stay, family room was ok and 20 RMB continental breakfast is good value. Best tips are location and the rooftop terrace with bar (great view even from the laundry terrace... Don't miss it!) No towels provided in the room (didn't ask wether it's possible to hire them).

The beds are quite nice and they did not have elevators. The location is good as it's just few minutes walk from West Street. They only had 2 communal showers for dorms so you need to queue for bathing session. The wifi is very bad at level 5 dorms. Like the rooftop bar view, as you can see yangshuo from...

Dorms were clean and bathrooms ok. The staff is nice and the included breakfast is basic but good. They have a superb terrace with a bar, even if we haven't try to party there (based on the pictures, parties look like fun in this place). The hostel is in the center of Yangshuo.

We stayed at Showbiz Inn during the Chinese Spring Festival. Every night was quiet except the final two nights which were booming with the sounds of fireworks rebounding off the mountains. I don't think there's a kitchen or any food in the hostel, but it has an awesome rooftop bar with cheap beer, free pool, board games, and a fantastic...

The staff at Showbiz Inn were really friendly, very willing to help and gave great tips on what to do around Yangshuo. The rooftop bar was cheap compared to the bars around West Street, played decent music and there's a pool, darts and other games. The room was clean, a bit chilly, but I didn't spend too much time in...

I was here last summer. Friendly staff and the owner is really nice. The rooftop bar is awesome. It has a great view. The location is very central to everything else. The rooms had plenty of space and the beds were comfortable as well.

The hostel is situated just down a little alley off of the busy "West Street". It is a great location, and West Street is a great place to be. Wonderful shops and stalls, and bars and clubs. Not to mention loads of great restaurants. The hostel is also within walking distance to the bus station, so you won't have any...

“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.”
