A peaceful retreat in the middle of Guilin city, Old Place Hostel is within a 1-minute walk of Rong Lake and a 15-minute walk from Elephant Trunk Hill.
Score from 234 reviews Very good
The location is great and the staff is friendly.
Well located. The dorms are a bit dark and there are no windows so it's definitely not the best. But the ambiance is great. The Green Forest in Yangshuo, however, is a little marvel!!! If you go to yangshuo go to the green forest. You will live it for sure
The location is really nice and easy to reach on foot from most key attractions
We had a twin room for a week but could use the toilet in it only for roughly half that time because it just kept getting clogged.
I liked the food offerings and location of hostel. Very easy to walk to the nearby Elephant Hill park, Night Market and small shops.
The dorm room I was in was quite small and difficult to be comfortable in given that I didn't know the other three guests. Room was also quite humid.
The location is very good, close to the bus and rail stations and near the river and the central city area.
It was cold at the time and heating inside the rooms is not good. Wifi in the room was very poor but was ok in the reception area.
STAFF ! The most helpful and adorable, which was patient enough to help me to find the hostel and the PSB of Guilin. I liked the cozy atmosphere of the "living room" and the location - 5-10 walk from the bus and train station, but still quiet and peaceful, nearby the river.
The dorm with 4 beds was okay, but curtains would be great to have more privacy. Also, the beds are light and in wood, so it's creaking and shaking when the person on the top bed is moving - hard to fall asleep.
Good location, nearby bus and train station. Staff very helpful. Laundry services for free.
Extremely helpful staff with great English. Great food. Very organized booking online. Helpful tours if needed. Good wifi even in rooms. Clean.
Friendly and helpful staff. English is very good. Tours and transportation are easy to schedule. Food is really good and alcohol prices are cheap. Rooms are clean, facilities are clean. Lounge and bar area are a great place to meet people and have a fun time.
We are traveling china for a while now and the girls are by far the best staff we had. They are so nice and super helpful and when i was feeling ill they always asked how i was and if i need anything. The place itself located well and its very easy to get around with the buses.food is good. Also great common area which is great to meet people.
Rooms are a bit small but nice and clean
Staff were very helpful and had great English. It had a good common area to relax and there was a lot of info advertised about sight seeing tours etc. Food served at the hotel was nice and reasonably priced.
Sheets weren't overly clean so we slept in sleeping bags.
Really friendly and helpful staff, not a long walk to downtown,near the bus station and the train station.
Perfect place to stay!
Great social area, learn to play maijiang!And the hot pot was very tasty!!
Location is good. Many things are within walking distance.
The internet is really slow.
Staff was excellent! Always smiling, helpful when necessary and always around. Food from the kitchen smelled and looked good, we didn't ate it, unfortunately. Beer is reasonably priced and your surrounded by restaurants and shops.
The room was really grubby. There are marks everywhere, on the floor, wall, ceiling, windows. It looks that no one ever cleans it. The floor is stained and you don't want to look beneath the bed or in the corners. It's awful and disgusting. The bathroom and toilet especially as marks on it where guys stand to pee in it. Seems like no one ever bothered to clean it. Also the bed was broken, so we slept sideways and every time we moved it made a sound. From all the hostels in China, this was the most unclean room. A shame..
Very close to the center of Guilin, Nice food in the restaurant, close to bus station.
The air condition didn't work, very cold room
Early morning check, wasn't a problem... Being central for Bus station and alot of info about surrounding area/Tours (but if solo, stay solo, will be cheaper... and just the same.)
lobby area didn't have any heat at all, hence hardly anyone willing to sit around in such big room, with Films, games and books... Big lost of points there.
doorbell broke so at 2AM we knocked the door and ring the phone for over 20 minutes before somebody let us in...
Very helpful for finding tours, and a good location within the city itself - walking distance from good markets, the river, restaurants etc which is very handy and very convenient counter-service.
Some of the area around the hostel is pretty dirty, but it's fine.
Nice and beautiful place. Good breakfast and english speaking staff. It is perfectly located for city sightseeing.
dorm room without window.
Location of this hostel is perfect! Riverside, not far from the station. Staff do really speak English. They are welcome and glad to help) Best coffee in Guilin!
Good location just 10 mins walk from bus or train station. The staff were really helpful .
Dorm with no window.
It only takes you minutes to walk to the scenic river and in contact with most bus numbers. Free internet. cozy reception.
slow speed of internet, though this is for all guilin. Bathroom is clean but not averagely good. No bathroom tools provided such us tooth brushes, soup etc,
The room was clean and large. We stayed during the low season and they gave us a free upgrade to a bigger room, with window. We like the concept of ecologically friendly design. We were using Guilin as our "base camp" for a few short trips around Guangxi and Guizhou, so we stayed at Green Forest on a few different nights. The staff were cordial and tried to be helpful, spoke English well. Overall we had a pleasant experience and we might stay at GFH again if we
The hostel is located on the second floor of a building, above a mah-johng parlour on the first floor. The noise from the customers of the gaming parlour was a bit disturbing on some nights (people drinking, yelling, etc). The staff were helpful with directions but in some cases gave incorrect information. For example, we were told that the bus from Yangshuo back to Guilin would drop us at the train station (on the same street as the hostel), but instead it took us to the bus station (the one farthest from the hostel, not the close one).
