I wasn't too sure at first about staying at a hostel in China, but in hindsight I am glad we stayed there for 3 nights. The staff was energetic, helpful and spoke good English. They helped planned our trip in Yangshuo and were very patient with our questions. The room feels new and it's very clean and comfortable. Location is fantastic if you want to live inside the town as everything is just a stone's throw away. What's the catch? Well it's not exactly 5 star property so you don't get any luxury which means you have to drag your bags up 3 stories in an old building which most people struggle to find upon arrival. As for the location, some might find it a curse living in the town as it can get pretty noisy during the day (lots of honking). There could be a few other minor things to pick on but hey for R200 a night for a superior double room, I think it's outstanding value. I will probably visit YS again, but next time I'd stay by the river/mountain instead. But if you want to stay somewhere simple and comfortable in town centre, this is a winner.
