Lonely Planet review

Run by the same owner as the Wada Hostel, rooms here are big (even the dorms) and are decorated tastefully with wood furnishings. The location is superb, with bars, restaurants and shops just a stone’s throw away. Staff are friendly, the communal area is roomy and cafe fare is available.

Our independent authors have visited Backstreet Youth Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Guìlín.

Description provided by property

Backstreet Hostel is located in the most central and touristed area of Guilin, within walking distance to all major attractions and interesting spots of the city. Just directly beside us is the famous Li River and Pedestrian Street, two of the major highlights of Guilin. We are also extremely easy to find by taxi as we are directly beside the Sheraton Hotel which all taxi drivers know how to get to which is a relief to many who have just come off a long bus or train ride.

Immediately upon entering, you will be welcomed by our very enthusiastic team who will assist you with everything you need from check-in to check-out. They will help you with travel information, tours, booking tickets, and everything in between. Also on the main floor is our very relaxed lounge where you can indulge in a movie, play boardgames, engage in conversation with other travellers, or just surf the internet on your laptop or our computers. Guests who need Facebook connecting to loved ones will be delighted to know that we have a dedicated network for it.

Because we are on Lonely Planet and Hostelling International, we pride ourselves in keeping up a high standard. Overall customer satisfaction is our goal and we prioritize on things such as cleanliness, security, and convenience. We give you peace of mind in knowing that you are enjoying a comfortable and clean bed, your belongings are completely safe and you can ask us to help you with absolutely anything.
