We spent a night here, however did not enjoy the stay too much. The set up was perfect, it was a homely inn, however as soon as we reached, a crowd of approx 25 people came in and started drinking in the bar below, the music was too loud and it was really disturbing us in the room. We were tired after a long journey and needed some peaceful time however the party and the loud music continued well into the night. The staff was helpful, around 12AM we called them and requested them to turn the music down. They understood and did try to help but not to much satisfaction. Anyways the next day we thought we would spend some time in Guilin however given our experience in this place we left early morning to Yangshuo and a good thing we did. It is value for money and staff are helpful, unfortunately it was a bad experience for us.
