“Not very good”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed in a double room with ensuite for 2 nights. The shower is all moldy and the toilet doesn't flush-just runs. The room is old and could do with a coat of paint. There was no room tidy or change of towels just empty of bin. We want on the one day tour to Longji rice terraces with the "big bus" which was terrible. 3 hours each way on such an uncomfortable bus, hardly any English explanation or directions when we got there, people were lost and the guide was yelling at them on the phone, we ended up waiting over 1 hour for lost Chinese tourists. Then the guide decided to try and sell perfume to people on the bus which held us up more while we waited for her to buy it. The only good thing was the breakfast - we had the European breakfast was we're pleasantly happy with it. Staff don't speak much English and don't seem to know much about the city. We asked how long I would take to get to the airport by taxi an the lady at the desk had no idea but told us id we left 1 hour before our flight we would be fine. it actually takes 40 minutes by taxi so if we followed her advice we would have missed the flight! I have stayed in hundreds of hostels and this is one of the worse ones.

during our honeymoon in China we stayed in the green forest hostel in an en-suite double room with a river view. the room was pleasant and the price was really amazing. not the most comfortable bed but its sleep-able.
i must point out the great and warm assistance we got from the nice staff working there! first of all we left most of our things in the hostel when we went for a night in the neighbor town Yangshoo which made our travels much lighter! also they have helped us in booking in advance all the trips we wanted to do around in area. moreover after we already checked out we went for a hiking trip and then asked to shower and were granted with fresh clean towels and a warm shower! all in all we found that no matter how hard the mattress is - its the attitude of the people that makes the stay :)

When we entered the room at the green forest hostel we couldn't believe what we saw: a huge, clean ensuite room. What was the price we paid again? Wow. This place definitely is affordable and offers a great location and friendly staff. For us, travelling by train, it was located conveniently close to the train and bus station. If you get along with the local bus system its easy to find your way to the sights outside of the city (if in doubt, just ask the english speaking staff that will guide you through your excursion).
If your hungry you can get a snack in house, although i wouldn't recommend having dinner there (there's better places close by). Great place to stay, especially as a backpacker! (this also seems to be one of the only places where you can easily buy and send postcards to your beloved ones...)

This hostel is in a good location, near to the train and bus station and close to the night market. The reception staff speak good English and were helpful. We booked two tours through Green Forest (the rice terraces and the bamboo boat to Yangshuo) and they were both great! The rooms are quite small but they are clean. The food is not great, I wouldn't recommend eating there. We tried breakfast and dinner and both were a disappointment. We stayed in two different rooms both with river views, but the view is not anything special and not worth paying more for. Overall for the price it is good and was an enjoyable stay!

Green forest hostel is a decent choice for people who look for budget.Its not too far from airport (40 mins) and is more in city the center on the busy road Zongshan. The hostel is basic and rooms are small,clean and with bath towels.But be careful about room you choose.They have river view rooms ,which are better than non river view rooms.Avoid rooms near the lobby or entrance as it would be super noisy all day/night with people talking loud,playing games and music.They have a cafe that serves quite good food,coffee and breakfast set.Water & beer is readily available. Staff is nice and helpful.They help arrange tours of Li river,rice terraces and another local sigh seeing.They also have dorms in case wanted.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms next to lobby area where most people relax during free time.

The staff speaks a really good english and is always ready to help.
They welcomed us at 1 a.m. with the smile.
Comfortable room with view on the river.
Ideally located between the center and the train/bus station.
