“Probably the best place to wait for your visa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

Stayed in a private double on the 10th of October 2013 while waiting for our visa for Vietnam. The staff were very helpful providing a visa service for a charge however your visa does work out cheaper if your willing to wait a few days or you could go get it yourself the visa centre is actually in the bus station so you could pick up your bus ticket at the same time for the crossing to vietnam. The hostel is about a 30 minute walk to the bus station(we walked it with rucksacks but we are a bit nuts so maybe get a taxi)

There is a western type restaurant close by and the food in the hostel is decent we found food in nanning a bit poor overall but if your only there a few days theres enough to get by.

Room was decent thought the drains did tend to smell after you had a shower but the room was clean enough. There is free laundry we were lucky it wasnt in use when we went to use it.

Overall the hostel is good and serves its purpose as a stop off going to or coming from vietnam. The entrance has been mentioned a few times its fine to be honest not the worst we have had to walk through I mean theres a nursery on the 1st floor how scary can it be.

This hostel has a lot of positive to it. The location is perfect, close to the city centre and 20 minutes walk from the train station, doable if you are carrying too much with you. I hear other travellers having a hard time to find the place. I would suggest turning on minsueng road which is the first pedestrian street on the right hand side coming from the station. Walk until the end of it and the hostel will be right in front of you. The room are great. We got a double room because it was less than a dollar difference with the dorms and the room was perfect, i felt like in a real hotel:cosy, spacious, comfortable. It comes with your own bathroom, towels, air con, reading light. The hostel itself has a great common room with guide books, guitars, 8 yuan beers and a food menu. There is internet everywhere in the hostel. I thought this was one of the best places i've stayed at. Another great point was that we knew we were gonna check in really early morning (as we travelled by night on a sleeper train) and the girl at the reception let us check in at 8 am

This is where i stayed when visiting nanning. I would suggest mapping the location for this hostel because the directions in hostel world are not correct and that could be due to the subway construction. Does no use to ask the taxi drivers they could not figure out where the hostel was located. Down the street there is an area where the street turns into a small night market I saw a variety of things that locals eat such as snake, frogs, etc. Personally, i developed a liking for the bbq river snails and ate a lot of bbq while i was in nanning.

I stayed at green forest hostel for 1 night, and I am glad it was 1 night only. As mentioned in the previous reviews the entrance is very dodgy, however once you get to the 3rd floor, the common room is spacious and cozy. The girl at the reception wasn’t welcoming, it felt as if I interrupted her... and smiling doesn’t hurt, does it... I got the room on the 5th floor, so had to climb additional 2 floors. The room itself was OK, decent beds, however you can hear all what is happening outside. The worst part for me was toilets and showers. They were all dirty and none of the toilet cabins had toilet paper throughout the duration of my stay! No paper hand towels by the sinks either! The location is pretty good I guess, 10 Yuan away from the train station and 50 Yuan away from the bus station.

Compared to other hostels in China it is quite expensive. But rooms are big and spacy, clean and with AC.

Shared bathrooms are OK. Showers as well.

Free laundry but always busy -_-

Food price is OK, but it isn't that nice.

Located next to some malls and a pedestrian street.

The meeting area/lounge is so hot :/

It's not that nice having to climb three flights of stairs each time you go into the building, and even more for your room.

Good stay, but I'm sure there are many better ones.

Room clean and large. Good shower. Nice communal area. English speaking staff, but in the morning didn't want to book us a taxi to the bus station. Quite far from bus station. And pretty horrible entrance. Paid for breakfast but took too long so we didn't get it as had to leave for bus, didn't offer refund.

We stayed in a private double. The room was large & clean, bed was comfortable - we even had a view of the river! Free use of the washing machine was much appreciated, and our clothes dried overnight (hung around the window in our room, lots of room) despite the humidity. Staff weren't overly helpful when we asked for a bit of advice, but no complaints really. Easy walk from the train station, 15min maybe. Would stay here again should we ever return to Nanning.
