Wajiang Hostel Guilin Railway Station
Reviewed 11 December 2013

It is a normal hostel, nothing special. It is really cheap, central, next to the bus station (if you want to take the bus to Yangshuo you only have to walk for 5 minutes!) the room are not so clean but big. The bathroom is without the shower box so it becomes dirty in few minutes and they don't give any soap!
The best thing of the hostel is the common area where you can relax, chat and enjoy good Western and Chinese food. Te staff is nice and young!

We stayed in a double, river view room, and our friend stayed in one of the 4 bed dorms. We were all more than satisfied with the standard of our rooms. There was a free washing machine and free laundry powder, plus a good sized drying room. This was really handy! We stayed for 3 nights. The staff were really, really friendly and helpful. A couple of the staff taught us how to play mah Jong one night which was really cool. It was so good, that we have now brought our own set to play with while travelling around. So thank you again green Forrest for teaching us the ropes. The staff were also really helpful with information on getting buses and trains to our next destination.

The location was great, really close to the train station, and even closer to the bus station. A short walk away from the pedestrian streets and right next to a beautiful river.

The food served at the bar was some of the best hostel food we have enjoyed in China so far. Also, I couldn't get enough of the ginger tea they served.

This is so far one of the best hostels we've been to in China.
First of all the place is right near the bus station and 10 minutes walk from the train station and the center of town (also you can take a bus which costs 1 yuan).
The staff was extremly nice and welcoming. The guy in the reception was kind and knows english very well, and helped us a lot.
We took a 4 bed dorm room - the beds are almost queen size, big, comfy, nice shower, clean.
The lobby is nice, 2 computers with facebook access, fine resturant and bar.
I'd recommend this hostel to anyone with love!

One of the better hostels during my first trip to China. They have almost everything that a great hostel should have - extremely helpful staff, very smiling people, nice book collection although parts of them are in spanish (odd), stylish design and very nice and solid bunk bed.

However, it's an hotel-converted hostel and the bathroom is pretty shabby and sometimes jammed with some stinky smell from the pipes. Brush aside from this, i would say it's a really great stay.

Probably this is the best hostel in Guilin, staffs were very friendly and very kind, spoke nice English, and very helpful. Location is also good, near the famous Twin Pagoda, and Elephant Trunk Hill and busy city street. The lobby was very nice, you can play table football, pool and mahjong. Rooms were nice, simple and comfy with large bathroom. River view not really pretty due to dense trees, it was noisy at night because of gambling people outside the building.

Room Tip: Room 204 has nice design

Nice, friendly environment. Very nice staff. Free water refill! Free laundry is a HUGE plus!!! Nice location.
Room are not quite comfy. Also bad smell in bathroom from time to time. Dirty window with some garbage outside the window. Street is not quite isolated from room because of hole in the windows (for AC tubing's). Expensive price (140 RMB), but looks like it is normal in China.

I travelled with a friend, sleeping in a double room (no river view)

The staff can speak English and can help you booking trips everywhere around Guilin, rice terraces, Li river, Yangshuo.
Longji rice terraces are awesome and if I'll ever go there another time, I'll spend a nice in Longji because it's the real Chinese countryside.
The hostel is cheap, clean to be Chinese, friendly, front desk open from 7am to 1am so late check in are possible
It's located in the town center, near the river, in a quiet position but close enough to go everywhere in Guilin walking (no taxi needed)
The breakfast (32RMB total) can be continental, French, Swiss or American and includes coffee/tea too: it's good and available in the great hall from 7am
The air condition in the room works well even if the system isn't so new and in the bathroom is without soap, shampoo, hairdryer, comb

If you want to book the trips with them (recommended), force them to book while you're booking the room, otherwise you can risk not to be able to travel as you would like (seats in buses are limited and there are few tours every day)
The Green Forest has a hostel as cheap as this also in Yangshuo, but they don't advertise it too much, we discovered it while arrived in Guilin

Room Tip: The "river view" is an extra not bnecessary since the rivewr is outside of the main door a...
