Fantastic stay
The Hostel is just a few seconds away from the pedestrian area with a lot of shops and the Li River is also right next. The staff is very helpfull and speaks very good English. I am sure they can answer almost every question you have. I haven't eaten there, but ehat I have seen is that the good looks very good. In the lobby you can use all blocked sites with an VPN (facebook, youtube,...). I would book there again if it happens that I stay in Guilin again. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm with private bathroom.

Some good and some bad
Good = staff was friendly/helpful, great location, neat VPN in public area (when it is working), big window in room lots natural light, fairly spacious for price Bad = our room smelled horrible to the point we dreaded returning to our room, wifi spotty, air conditioner didn't cool room down enough, one morning cleaning lady gave knock then walked in on us about two seconds later she needs to give time to respond to respect privacy The bad smell might have just been one room, but if they try to hand you the key to 311 run away.

Great Location. Exceptionally Friendly Staff
Nice Rooms. Only 2 Years Young. Great Staff.
We stayed this time in a private room instead of their hostel bunk bed room. The private room was large and clean but had a bare concrete floor. Would be nice if they put a nicer floor in. The air conditioner and heater worked fine and was very quiet. The room could have used more shelf and table space. There was a desk & chair and two small night stands. The hotel/hostel staff were exceptional...Kevina, Echo, Nicki, Amy, and others. Probably the most memorable part of our stay. They are right next to the pedestrian walking street. The large restaurant & food area is only about 25 meters away from their front door. The Li River is just across the street and Guilin Central is next to the Sheraton Guilin Hotel. The Sun and Moon Pagodas and Elephant Trunk Hill are just a few minutes walk away. Have stayed at Guilin Central many times before and look forward to another return visit next year. The food at their restaurant/kitchen is excellent and the prices seemed reasonable. The staff speak excellent English (better than at the Sheraton nearby) and can help you book sightseeing tours and a Li River cruise or raft trip to Yangshuo at reasonable prices with a pickup nearby. There is a dumpling making night every Sunday for those that are interested in learning and meeting others. FYI - There is no elevator/lift, so you'll be using stairs to get to your room.
