              Great service

              The best thing about the Wada Hostel is the service. Everybody that I spoke to was helpful and very friendly. They can help you book airport transfers and day tours (word of warning: I joined up with a 1 day bus tour and although I was told there was an English/Chinese speaking guide, it turned out that the entire tour was conducted in Chinese). For my 2-day stay at Wada, I booked a private room. The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were a decent size and clean. The hostel itself is located on a major road, very close to a bus stop. But because its situated back from the roadside, its actually very quiet and you wont be bothered by the street noise at all. I would definitely recommend this hostel to other travellers.

              Good budget hostel accommodation ”

              We were glad we'd decided to stay at this budget in Guilin. It was about a 10 min walk from Guilin Railway station and most places of interest were easily accessible from the bus stop near the hostel entrance. The staff spoke English and were very helpful with information as needed but they didn't hover over you. An added bonus was the free use of their washing machines (and washing powder) after 4pm. I would recommend this hostel for all budget travellers.

              We were totally surprised while staying in the hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a double room and it was big and nice. The location is a little of the center but you have good public bus connections to the city center. Near by its also a mall with a big food court where you have plenty of options what to eat and it's also very cheap. If you staying in Guilin don't hesitate to book in this hostel!

              We sincerely appreciate their service, food, bar, room facility and hospitality! Though it is somewhat lost in the middle of residential area(but it turned out to be great to have a good rest after FengHuang), not hard to find it at all. You will even find it very convenient to visit the city thanks to the various bus lines. I highly recommend them!!

              I would come back to visit the staff. They were so helpful and nice.. I actually felt sad leaving the hostel. It had a great atmosphere and the beds were so comfortable. They had a privacy curtin and the rooms had 1 large and 1 smaller locker for each guest.. there was AC and heated mattresses.. the food was decent too. The dumpling and BBQ parties were a lot of fun and great way to meet fellow travellers.... I stayed here for 6 nights and I can't think of a negative point about the hostel..

Dorms are comfortable spacious clean & private. Can book cheap bus to rice fields & boat to Yangshou from here. Located near a market & cheap food places. Walking distance to shopping mall and good directions to walk here from Guilin main train station. Loved our stay here.

              Can't express how much I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Beds are clean. The food isn't the cheapest but what it lacks in price it makes up in taste! Also, the atmosphere is soooooo good here. Very laid back and calming even though its smack dab in the middle of city streets. Favourite hostel so far in China and I dont really think anything is gonna beat it!

              Friendly helpful staff, atmosphere, food

              We stayed there twice and we really liked it. The rooms are tiny and old, and so is the bathroom,but it's very clean. The best of this hostel is the lobby /main area. There are a lot of travelers and the atmosphere is nice. They also have really good food there and the prices are OK. On Friday there is a bbq where you can meet a lot of people. They have some nice tours you can book with them, so there is no chance to get fooled. Their English is very good. They opened a hostel in yangshuo, so we traveled there for 3 nights and then back to their hostel in guilin. It would definitely recommend to come here when you travel through China and want to meet people. But if you need big new rooms, that's maybe not the right place. I would also recommend the short li river tour which the hostel offers to yangshuo.

              Location, helpful staff

              The staff at Wada are extremely helpful. They can help you with tours, transport inquiries and even visa stuff. There're computers that are free to use and also free luggage storage. It might be hard to find the first time as it's inside a residential compound. It's within walking distance to/from the bus and train stations. Although it's not near the city centre, there are a number of local buses that ply the route. The dorm room (4-bed) itself isn't very big, but comfortable enough. Perhaps a bit cramped when all the beds are filled and everyone has a big bag. It has lockers and its own bathroom. The hostel has a BBQ night every Friday for socialising. The dining room offers local and western dishes, alcohol, etc. But there's a water dispenser to fill those water bottles at the reception.

              The staff were extremely nice and helpful; Nice facilities for international travelers (bar, pool tables, terrace); Comfortable room

              It was really nice. Staff were extremely helpful and nice. We stayed there for only 1 night and had to get a cab at 6:30am to the airport and the night guy played us some Er Wu when we were waiting for the taxi. The cab to the airport was RMB130 because they wanted to make sure the taxi driver won't rip us off and that he/she will be there on time. They also had services like Wada tours or bike renting that you can join for sightseeing. Too bad we couldn't try as we are staying for 1 night. The only problem we had was the fireworks. The neighbor of the hotel lighted up some fireworks at 7pm then 1am, woke us up, the car alarm went on as the fireworks were reallllly freaking loud. But we went during Chinese New Year so I guess it happens anywhere. Besides the neighbor, the hotel itself is awesome.

              Must-stay hostel ”

              staff, international environment, activities

              Do not hesitate to stay in Wada. After being in another couple of cheap hostels in Guilin I highly recommend Wada. The staff is really friendly and always happy to help. They have all the facilities you could need and the environment there is just awesome. ( Pool and cinema room are the coolest)

              GOOD”

              THE STAFFS ARE NICE, AND THEIR ENGLISH ARE GOOD. THEY ALSO INTRODUCE CHINESE CULTURE TO FOREIGNERS.

              THOUGH THE LOCATION IS KINDA HARD TO FIND, IT IS WORTH IT WHEN WE FINALLY ARRIVED. THOUGH CHINA IS NOT A FRIENDLY COUNTRY FOR NON-CHINESE SPEAKING TRAVELERS, STAFFS IN WADA GAVE FOREIGNERS LOTS OF HELP. THEY EVEN HELD "DUMPLING" PARTIES TO INTRODUCE CHINESE CULTURE TO OTHERS. 但我真的很不喜歡他們說我是「中國台灣」來的!
