MissT I love this hostel!! such a great price value and the staff is super friendly! I paid 35RMB (about $5 USD) a night for a 4 female bed dorm. there is also a shower and bathroom inside the room. the place seems very clean, housekeeping changes the sheets and comforter everyday! also they provide free laundry!, what more could a traveler ask for? I think the best thing about this place is the staff. I feel like they would go out of their way to help you. they also speak english very well, which is nice. anyways, very clean very cheap and great staff! :D
lkailan I have stayed at Backstreet 4 times and it hits all the marks. In order of importance for me: great location; plenty of hot water and good pressure in the shower; clean basic rooms; good value for money; and most importantly, bright, cheerful staff that understand customer service and speak perfect English. I recommend this hostel.

pek351 This Old Place Hostel Guilin is situated right in the heart of the city and beside the lake where there is a beautiful landscape bank for strolling, with free outdoor entertainment. The location was #1 and it is great value for money. Some of the staff could learn a thing or two about efficient, friendly service, but that's not uncommon in China.

craiginglis 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.

Paul_kirkd This hostel is more than just a hostel. It is located within easy walking distance from the main train and bus stations and right next to the river that runs through the city. The facilities in the room can be described as basic but they are enough for what a weary traveller needs. A comfortable bed in a reasonably sized room with ensuite toilet and shower facilities. Each room has TV and air conditioning for no extra charge. What really made the stay such a pleasant experience was the staff. Always willing to help answer any question or query you have and often going above and beyond their normal duties. A special thanks has to go to Stephanie and ShanShan who helped us sort out our onward travel arrangements for no personal reward. No small thing when they must have spent nearly an hour going through the options with us. I thoroughly recommend staying here and have to say it was the best of the 6 different places we stayed at during our trip to China.

czuercher The hostel is simple, but clean and staff is very helpful and friendly. As someone who has lived in China for quite a while, I can say that although basic, the quality of the bathroom facilities is above average for this country!

sylvia.wharton The manager is a very helpful, knowledgeable, and interesting character who can speak for hours on end about the cultural revolution and his observations and experience of modern China. But you do need to have the time to listen. Fascinating.
