View of the river from the back patio
AC was barely functioning
We just stayed one night in this hostel. Rooms very ok and clean. Staff was friendly. Food was ok, but nothing special really.
Helpful & friendly staff Bar restaurant overlooking river All day English breakfast Huge family room with a double child's bed Free wifi
Hair dryer next to shower No mirror in bedroom
Easy walking distance to night markets. Great food. Staff excellent and helpful. Had a tour guide named Robert. Has Aussie residency and studied English for 3 yrs. Would recommend. Take a tour with him to meet Yao minority group in the Lonji rice terraces.
Beds were hard.
-It was the best bed that we have since long time...We slept so well! -The room was bigger than my flat in Paris ;-) -The terrace was near the river, peaceful with a really nice view! -Receptionists speak english. -Pizza was good :-)
- french fries were disgusting - tours organised by the hostel are expensive, you can find better price on the street.
Large and clean room on quiet location. Nice terrace. Good service and facilities, like arranging massage or tours. Friendly staff. Free computer with internet available.
good value for money, big room, good meals
small bathroom without real shower, tour to the rice terrace awful because rhe guide tour was really not prepared and not speaking english (as they sell). we had to walk 2 hour by foot because of bad organization
Rooms were big, friendly staff, wifi, 2 pc's in lobby with acces to facebook! Cheap and good breakfast.
The facilities at this hostel were outstanding! Lovely restaurant over looking the river, a small communal kitchen to use if you needed it and our room was extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated! Perfect place to stop off on the way to Yangshuo and staff very helpful.
Just perfect. Like a 4 star hotel in much better price.
very nice, friendly and helpful staff; pretty balcony overlooking the river
Meals were very good! Organised trips; clean and big room.
There wasn't really a good place to sit and chat with other people. Terrace was nice, but guests didn't really stay there for fun.
Excellent location between city and walking distance from the busstation Friendly staff
The staff was really nice and the location was great. They have a beautiful patio right on the river. It was also within walking distance to the bus station.
I emailed them twice before my stay to try to arrange a ride from the airport as I was arriving after midnight, but did not hear back from them. I also tried calling, but three phone numbers on booking.com and their own website were out of service. The tuna sandwich I had for lunch the next day was not very good.
Finally we stayed at Park side Hostel because there wasn't place in the River Hostel. They are the same company. We spend a very nice time, the manager ,Yang ,speaks good english and is very helpfull. They helped us to find tours arround Guilin and to organize our next stops in China. If one day we'd return todo Guilin, we will repeat for sure.
Great value, very accommodating, free computer use, books to use and buy available, tour booking and planning, VERY helpful staff, great location, food available, ENGLISH speaking and very helpful staff!!!
There was only 1 english speaking channel on the t.v. I had booked a NON smoking room for our family and on our first night upon arriving there, we got a disgusting stinking smoking room. they tried to find us a non smoking room, there was non available. the following night, they were able to move us to one. other than that we had NO problems.
I think the staff there were the only persons we met (in whole China) who really could speak English ;-) nice place outside to have breakfast and dinner bookshelf for exchanging books (leave two books there, take one with you) really friendly and helpful staff!!!
They close with a chain the entrance door so you can't get out and in during the night. The room was full of mosquitos. The wifi was very poor.
Staff could speak some English and were extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, clean towels every day, AC worked great. Atmosphere very pleasant and family oriented, great location, staff arranged tours and drivers.
Price,location and big room with big balcony
Poor breakfast and I ordered and caffe latte and staff was not willing to do it!!
Walking distance to Bus Terminus
Breakfast time a little chaotic as space is too small
The Guilin Riverside Hostel is an excellent option. The room was clean with excellent bathroom facilities. The view of the river was great. The location cannot be beat as the hostel is right on the river and only a couple short blocks from the train station. The staff were very friendly and helpful with booking a bamboo raft trip. The hostel's restaurant is on an outside deck with a view of the river. The food was very good with many options both Chinese and western. We'd highly recommend this lodging for Guilin!
The staff were lovely
More vegetarian and local food variety would be better on the menu
Location by the river; the small verandah, intimate and cosy, where you can watch the river and locals doing exercise in the morning, and enjoy the lights in the evening while soft music is playing. The homemade dinner was my best meal in China. Very home-like atmosphere.
The staff were absolutely brilliant and helpful.
Perhaps more vegetarian a d local options on the menu
