We are back from 3 weeks in China during which we spent one week around Yangshuo. We stayed in Tea Cozy.
It is very close to Yulong river, walking distance to one of bamboo rafting place.
Rooms - very nice, clean, nice furniture. No noise in night. We had balcony to the street with nice view to the hills.
Staff - very friendly, lot of fun with them.
Food - there is kitchen in the hostel with some dishes, do not expect restaurant, but all was tasty. And of course, cold beers.
Services - I booked this hostel in advance including picking up at Guilin airport. All perfect. We borrowed hostel bicycles, worth to do it. Curry (manager of the hostel) has travel agency office in Yangshuo, just at the edge of West street, so it is possible to do cycling tour, stop in Yangshuo for a dinner or walk or shopping, leaving bicycles in their office and take them again later or leave them and use taxi back to the hostel. It takes about 15 - 20 minutes cycling from Yangshuo to the hostel. If you plan evening return from Yangshuo, take some light, because there are no street lights on the way. Just fireflies in ricefields. Curry managed also other activities - bamboo rafting, bird fishing and after all we did 3 days journey with him as a guide to Dragon backbone rice fields and rain bridges. He also managed another hotel in Guilin night before our departure with agency discount. The journey was real fun, we could hardly see all places without him, also we could taste local food. As a bonus we had sichuan hot pot (really HOT) with him - well brain and spinal cord were not our best.
Result: highly recommended.
