            wada absolutely the best in its class!!! and above”

            location, cleanliness, staff, simba, food...and the list goes on and on

            wada hostel was absolutely fabulous. i rate this hostel a 5 plus more if i could. let's begin with the staff. they could not be any more nicer or helpful. we had a twin room with our own private bathroom. the cleanliness of the room was impeccable. we have stayed in 5 star hotels that were not as clean as our room in this hostel. we had breakfast in the mornings. it was fresh, well prepared, and very tasty. they had some very good food choices as well. the ambience of the hotel was right up our alley. it was very pretty, earthy and bohemian. the music played in the lobby throughout the day was perfect. our room even had a a dvd player. we were able to borrow movies at the bar downstairs (great selection). the hotel was centrally located between downtown and other tourist area of guilin. traveling on foot or bus was not a problem. the hotel was mere steps away from the railway station. we booked a great tour to the li river and yangshuo at the front desk. overall this was a fantastic hotel. i hope the staff is reading this. thanks to all of you for making our stay in guilin wonderful. we went on to hainan from guilin and i must say that our stay in guilin was far better than hainan, thanks to the staff at wada. we hope to return soon.

            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.

            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.

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!

            clean, cozy, good service

            the wada hostel is just a hostel, so don't expect a budget hotel. it's very nice and cozy in the bar/café area (here you can eat simple dishes and they have a variety of breakfast choices). you can borrow dvds etc. they have computers and free wifi. they can also arrange tours, although we booked a private car to take us to the rice terraces and the car was extremely dangerous with brakes that didn't work when it started to rain, so if you do this tour, please check the state of the car before booking (for the price we paid i would have expected a standard car in good condition compared to other places in china where i have rented a car). but, once again this is a hostel, so the tours are mostly directed towards backpackers and budget travellers. we had a double room with our own bathroom. it was nice and clean, though not so big. it was a bit noisy in the evening, with people staying in the garden and going up and down to the rooms. the staff is friendly and helpful. the hostel is located very close to the railway station and not so far from the airport bus stop (appr 5-10 min), which is very convenient, but this is not the most beatiful part of guilin.

            amazing staff, great location, delicious food, cool atmosphere

            The staff here were always attentive and knew how to treat their guests. The hospitality I received was absolutely beyond my expectations for the price I paid. It's a more down to earth atmosphere where the employees were more your friends rather than servants. I got a lot of advice for my trip in China. As for the city, there were a few places worth visiting in Guilin and the city seemed small enough to get to all the sites by taxi and public bus without any problems. Across the street was a lovely botanical garden that I actually didn't have to pay for! And those home-made dumplings were exquisite! I had a fantastic time!

            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.

            Very social common areas, very friendly staff, reasonable prices

            We had a great time at Wada. The rooms and hotel in general could use some updating as things are starting to show their age. The location is not great being south of town, but there isn't much in Guilin to do anyway. The restaurant food at the hotel is mediocre and there aren't a lot of options near the hotel due to location. Internet is only available in the common areas not the rooms, sometimes it's fast but it slows down in the evenings when more people are online. Despite the above, I would recommend this hostel. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great for meeting people. They have all you can eat BBQ once a week and can arrange group transportation to the rice fields.

            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.

            Overall a good place to stay”

            Friendliness and help of the staff

            The room was acceptable. It was nice that, unlike the hostels in Thailand, they give you soap, towels, and toilet paper. But you pay for it. I can't say how the prices compare with other hostels in Guilin or China. Unfortunately, when I arrived at 10:30 pm, the electric was out, and took about 1 hour to bring back. That was difficult because I was tired. There were a couple of things I suggested to improve the place, and I think they took them under advisement. Without looking for anything else, I would recommend anyone to stay there. The gals were especially friendly, helpful and spoke good English.
