“Wonderful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Many activities are organized.

The common area is a nice place to hang out: pool table, terrace, TV room with hundreds of movies, etc.

Dorms are basic but clean.

The hostel is close to the train station, thus, you would need to take a bus (or walk a lot) to reach the walking streets with all the shops.

Awesome staff to help you tailor-fit your travel itinerary during your stay in Guilin, and they let me easily reserve a room by email! Very good location, good and cheap food just across the street. Quality rooms, too.

Stayed there for four nights. The staff were the nicest ever! Extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in a 4 bed room. The beds are slightly uncomfortable, but good for the price we payed. Good location. BEST STAFF

Perfect hostel I have no complaints!!!
I have been there for 4 nights and stayed in a single room. Everything was clean, tidy and the beds are also comfortable for tall people. The chill out /bar area is amazing and so you can recover in a quiet environment.
The hostel is easy to find. From the airport take the public bus 20RMB and get off at the first station Swan Hotel. I think it was bus route 2 (not 100%) but at the exit of the airport is a ctrip (famous China travel agency) information desk and they speak English very well. They were very helpful and in front of this exit are also the Bus stations.

From the train station is it just a 10 minutes walk.

The taxi drivers in this city are very unfriendly and didn`t want to drive me. Maybe they were shocked about my body height of 2 meters ;-)
But the hostel is located close to a bus station Line10 so you don`t need those crazy guys.

Back to the hostel
I had a great time and the staff are perfect!!!!!
friendly, funny, helpful, patient, ....
Be careful, one of them is a pool professional - find it out it`s unbelievable ;-)

Thanks for this great stay at Wada

You can log facebook with their internet service. Worth to stay if you plan go longji or yangshuo, you can leave your luggage here. FOC for luggage keeping and safe.

We had a private room with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. The room and bathroom were a good size and clean. It is a 10 minute walk from the Guilin South Train Station. The food was very good and there was a nice international vibe.

Amazing staff, very helpful and friendly. Great location near the Bank of China and the train station. Dorms clean and good beds. The hostel offers some cheap and delicious foods. Free wash machine, free movies, video games and pool. Don't forget : each 12 beers drink you win a t-shirt ! As far, the best hostel where I've been to !
