Reviewed 10 July 2011

The Location is very central just a few seconds from the main strip which makes it easy to pop out. My room was very clean and you get the feeling that they have made a real effort to make the place nice (something that is sadly lacking in most of China). Wi Fi was good. Lastly the owner Jack was a legend and spoke good English which is a godsend in this country

I've stayed in Yangshuo for 2 nights at the beginning of my one month trip in China. I do not speak any form of Chinese...
Jack has been most kind and helpful. He showed a lot of knowledge of the area and helped me a lot: whether it was walking with me to look for a traveller's book, trying to book stuff online, taking me to the right bus, booking tours of the area, etc.
Plus this hostel has FACEBOOK access!!!!!
and WIFI (:
Really recommended

Room Tip: contact Jack via email - he'll respond asap

Great place to stay if you're not looking for a party hostel. Rooms were comfortable, clean. Jack was very helpful, and was able to give advice, book onward travel and arrange tours. They seemed to be Chinese speaking tours, but after speaking to others there seems to be few English tours available, so more for convenience if it's a bit far to cycle. Location great, 10-15 min walk from the bus station, and located right next to West Street, and most of the best bars and cafés. Recommended.

This place was great! They made us feel welcome and at home, and they were very friendly and so helpful when it came to advising us on what to do. It really made our short trip run smoother and was perfect. Would definitely reccomend people to stay here, when i return to Yangshuo I will surely stay here. It was also in a perfect location, right on West street which is where you want to be especially if your looking for a crazy night!

Room Tip: I stayed in a dorm was perfect.

I completely agree with gigino's review. This place has a very questionable owner and he seems to have no integrity whatsoever. he tells us the room is fine, but days later left us a note after we booked online and told us how bad and uncomfortable his hotel is in general...and telling us to remove our reservation. it was during a busy holiday, so we were hanging on to our reservation. to have our it removed by very untruthful and manipulative owner left us really mad. and when i confronted him, he responded 'i just refuse to accommodate you, ok?' the way he treated us was gangster-like.

Guys, if you don't want to start off your vacation being aggravated and without a room, and dealing with a two-faced jerk, steer clear.

hey, don't count on my words, this is what he himself said about the inn 'the rooms are tiny..no tv, nothing nice at all. you probably won't feel comfortable. i'm only saying this for your own good...'

There you have it.

Charming Inn was a great place to stay. They had a great location that was easy to find, and was surrounded with yummy cafes, and the best shopping in all the city. Jack was so helpful giving us information, and setting up tours. The Inn was clean, and the beds were so comfortable. This was a wonderful place to stay.
