    The right place, if you want to stay in town”

    The staff is nice, talks English and one lady (Alire) helps a lot to book the right tours and she gives good tips. The restaurant is good, just be patient to get finally your food, or the coffee in the morning. Gulin itself is very touristy and someone must like the way, how the Chinese celebrate their holidays, to feel comfortable in this crowd and noise and the clingpings. But the scenery and Natur outside of the town is good enough to spend one or two days. On this place walk up the Tunnelhill and the Pagodahill to get a good view.

    Impressive! Best Overseas Experience!”

    It is definitely the most worthy stay we had for all our travelling opportunities! Abundance of appreciations to Angela and the other staff in Guilin Ming Palace International Youth Hostel, your hospitality is unbeatable! Room: Spacious, uniquely designed with themed paintings on the walls, clean, tidy and comfortable. I must say that the furniture and items in the rooms were very well thought of; well-placed wooden piece of furniture for hanging jackets and clothes, 2-seater sofa for putting on and taking off shoes, a washing basin at the pantry, raised-platform with wooden table along the aisle of the window, and etc. Beautiful and Functional! Brilliant and ease at heart... =) Location: The hostel is strategically located within Ming Palace district, 5 mins walk to the famous 靖江王城 and very near to the buzzing streets. Uniqueness: Staff here are Gems! Professional in providing guest-stay services and efficient in assisting guests' enquiries. Thank you so much!

    The three-bed room is clean and comfortable though a bit out of walking space. Location is next to the walking street and some attractions.  There is a school next to the hotel. They play the songs every morning at 7.30am.

    Great atmosphere and super friendly and helpful staff!”

    Pros: convenient location, bilingual staff, friendly atmosphere, well kept comfortable rooms and great discounts on adventures. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded from a twin share to family room when we were there. Cons: barely anything, but the family room is right next to the local primary school, which starts to play music at 7:30AM. If you want to sleep in, this may be hard. The street can also be noisy sometimes if you are a light sleeper like me.

    THE place to stay in Guilin”

    A perfect hostel! Very reasonable rates, I had a private room which was extremely large, clean and comfortable. Staff are very welcoming and helpful, speak perfect English and can help with arranging whatever travel needs you have. Location is also perfect, only 5 minutes walk from all the action. Wi-Fi speeds are fine, and they also have a separate connection on the ground floor for accessing western unfiltered internet. The overall vibe here is very good, and they even have a restaurant/hang out area. No complaints :)

    Helpful and pleasant staff”

    We took a bus from Guilin North station to Guilin, and the hostel was 5/10 minute walk from the station, and easy to find. We were given a warm welcome, they helped us planning our route for our stay and in the afternoon they taught us how to make dumplings (for free, + it was our dinner). Really helpful, charming and welcoming staff. Only bad thing, when I went to my room there was a guy sleeping in my bed, because for some reason we both had been given the same one. Luckily enough, there was another one free. They all spoke quite good english.

    My husband and I treated my parents to a stay in the Guilin Ming Palace Hostel. It was clean, the price was great, the staff was friendly and the food was good. The staff helped us book tours and were very friendly. This is the second time that my husband and I had stayed at this hostel and we would recommend it to singles, couples and families.

    Okay for a One-Day Stay”

    Centrally located, good food, quiet

    Stayed here for one night. The female staff was a bit unfriendly and grumpy. She told me I only paid for 10% of my reservation, even if I showed her a print-out that my room's been fully paid at Agoda. Anyway, they were able to acknowledge my payment after some time. The room I had was a bit old. Thankfully, there were no bedbugs. The hostel offers cheap tours around Guilin and Yangshuo. Food's okay at the restaurant.

    This hostel is great for its location very close to the river and the pedestrian street. There is a nice little bar and pool table in the lobby. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The only downfalls were that we had no window in our room so it had a strong musty smell and we could hear noise very easily from the hallway and staircase.

I have asked to extend my check out time and willing to pay the extra cost. But, the staff just simply refuse and do not want to extend my check out. The next day before I check out. I try to request one more time to other staff. She allowed us to extend our checked out and inform we need to pay for one night rental, which I didn't mind at all.
