From $6

A playful hostel where you can chill! Old xiaoyanglou hostel recommended by lonely planet, Green Forest Hostel is ideally located in the most convenient area of Guilin.

Green Forest hostel is close to Guilin bus/train station and situated beside the river. We face the elephant trunk hill. Famous scenic spots such as seven star park, reed flute cave and solitary beauty peak are all in walking distance or very easy to reach by bus.

Green Forest hostel is not only a good place to make new friends, but also a fun place when you travel, with a cozy common area and nice cafe. All the rooms are equipped with an air conditioner and private bathroom.

We offer:

Green Forest bar (amazing bar)

Wonderful music and hot&sexy bar girl.

Western style breakfast, pizza, sandwich, real coffee, cappuccino, Latte, Mocha, Americano and Chinese special food.

Cold beer, cocktails, spirits, bottom up, various kinds of drinks, table games such as pool, Majiang, UNO card.,wii games, guitar and periodical activities organized by the bar.

We will happily arrange excursions to places like LiRiver cruise or bamboo raft to Yangshuo and Longshen Rice Terraces and we will help you to book your train, bus or plane tickets. We simply give you plenty of information on many local attractions including Two-Lake Four-River cruise, Elephant Trunk Hill and Reed Flute Cave, seven star park and more.

Tours we offer:

Li River cruise

Originating from the Maoer Mountain, the cream of the Li River is the section from Guilin to Yangsuo, fabulous shaped limestone hills pillars and cliffs that rise sharply from the ground out of nowhere.

bamboo raft: the bus picks you up at 10:00am from the hostel, drives an hour to yangdi village, then 2 hours on the raft to Xingping which is the best point of the Li river cruise. Then you can choose to stay there or to go back to Yangshuo.

Longsheng rice terrace

Longsheng has more than 650years of history. It forms a picture of great momentum and imposing beauty. Apart from these breathtaking man-made wonders, you can visit Yao and Zhuang Ethnic tribe and experience their original life style.

Longsheng rice terrace: a one day trip can be organized by the hostel. We rent a bus, which goes to Dazhai or Pingan. Well need at least 5 people to join the tour. Departure time is flexible.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stayed here for 4 nights in a dorm room. Beds are super comfy, after a long journey I slept for about 12 hours! Everything was clean and the shower worked well. Wifi connection in the common room was great. The common room itself was a nice chilled out place, and the resident cats are adorable. I ate there most nights and the food was lovely and reasonably priced. Location-wise it's in a great spot. Only moments from local shops and a short walk to Elephant Trunk Hill and other beauty spots. All the staff were very sweet and helpful whenever I had a question. Great place, would recommend!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Two very minor things that wouldn't put me off staying here again:

1. We stayed on a Saturday night, and there appeared to be an open-air karaoke session being held within earshot of the hostel. Also, one side of the hostel overlooks the river and part of the riverside walkway. This was a little bit noisy, but would probably be quieter during the week.

2. I think the hostel restaurant and bar were relatively new/recently expanded, but the service was a little slow. The staff were really friendly, always smiling and very helpful. With time I'm sure they will speed things up, and if you are in no hurry, this isn't an issue.

With those two provisos I would definitly recommend this place - clean rooms and facilities, friendly staff and excellent location for exploring Guilin on foot.
