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.

This place is perfect for backpackers. The staff has a very "western" approach and everybody speaks english. They can help you plan all the activities in yangshou. I recommend to rent a bike! You will for sure want to stay more time in yanshuo that you have planned. The rooms are very spacious and modern (and perfect to rest after all the outdoor activities).

This was definitely one of the best hostels we stayed at during our trip to China. The location is very convenient, since it's about a two-minute walk from the center of things - which makes it very close to walk, but far enough so it isn't noisy during the night. There's also a fruit store, a supermarket and a bike-rental just nearby. The room was very clean and very comfortable, and the staff was simply amazing. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room, meaning not facing the main road - and we got one. It was indeed very qui...

This is hands down the best hostel I have stayed in anywhere. It is beautiful, clean, modern with an environmentally friendly theme. The twin room was spacious with a really good bathroom and all sorts of extras I wouldn't normally expect - more like a hotel room than a hostel. The location is perfect on a quiet corner two minutes walk from Xijie. But the best thing was the staff. They were so helpful and friendly, even came shopping with us to help us get some genuine local gifts at local prices. A real credit to the hostel and themselves. We will certainly be back, thank you.

was in a three person dorm that was spacious, quiet and clean. the bathrooms are immaculate for a hostel and even has liquid hand soap and body wash. very good value, great modern facilities, decor, and lounge area and rooftop area, although both were always empty when i was there. everything seems pretty new. they even have free laundry and is the only hostel i've stayed at recently that has AMPLE SPACE AND HANGERS FOR YOU TO DRY YOUR CLOTHES.

great location, not in the thick of things, but still very close to west street and the bus station. handy supermarket and bike rentals next door. the bike guy they have a contract with or whatever is a super nice dude.

only negatives are that it was hard to find even with detailed instructions and a map on their flyer that isn't very good. it's on the third floor so you kind of have to look hard for it, and you have to walk up two levels of office space or something that isn't pretty. overall, great hostel tho.

Amazing hostel - it has it all - this is more a "Boutique hostel" than a regular one.
Great staff, great private double rooms, great location, great breakfast.
everything you can ask for and more.
Would definitely come back next time!

Room Tip: Queen room is amazing for hostel standards.

We had a greta stay for 2 nights at the Green Forest. There is nothing bad I can say about this place: looks perfect, feels even better! Rooms are new, very clean, nicely decorated, with all amenities, big and comfy. The idea behind the hostel is a sustainable way of living, so it's quite a zen place. The roof terrace has a great view, and the whole place is peaceful given the fact that is located on the lively West street. Breakfast is very good, try the omelette with green peppers, it's delicious! Staff is very nice and helpful, they arranged transportation for us directly to the Guilin airport. We checked-out in the morning, left our bags and went for a scooter ride along Li River and when we came back we could comfortable shower and change in the shared shower area before our evening flight; they even gave us towers and shower gel!
I highly recommend this place. Yangshuo is a beautiful place, and this hostel is going to make the experience even better!
