About Wada Hostel

When Wada Hostel opened its doors to travellers in July 2009, we didn’t know what to expect. We loved Guilin and we knew we had a lot of value to offer to travellers travelling to this beautiful city. Ever since we’ve opened, we have been overwhelmed by the reception and have welcomed over 100,000 guests from all over the world in such a short period of time. It’s shaped us into what we believe to be one of the best hostel in China.

We have always listened to our guests suggestions and it has continually allowed us to improve every aspect of our hostel. The last thing we wanted to be was another boring hotel in Guilin so we added a lot of great features to our hostel. We’ve installed a lovely bamboo garden in our outdoor courtyard, there’s a new pool table and Nintendo Wii in the lounge, a fully stocked liquor bar, good Wifi internet access and we’re probably the only hostel in China that has access to Facebook, Google, etc. so guests could get in touch with friends and family back at home.

We have been running fun weekly events such as our famous All-You-Can-Eat BBQs every Friday, the Dumpling Party every Monday, and we’ve just recently added our Guilin City Cycle Tour on Thursdays. We also continue to offer great tours to Li River and Longji Rice Terraces to our guests.

What truly separates us from everyone else though is our fun and amazing staff that run Wada Hostel. Each member of Team Wada was been carefully hand-picked for their talents, their exceptional English, and their strong desire to put a smile on everyone’s face.

We’ve been the most popular hostel ever since and it continues to help us achieve our high standard of service. We’ve climbed our way to the top spot on and the Lonely Planet Guide has even placed us in their latest edition simply because we offer the best value and service. We continue to train our staff, upgrade our facilities and enhance our services to ensure that our guests get the very best 5 star treatment. The competition is sweating and it’s gotten to a point where some of them are even trying to imitate us.

Our goal is to give you a memory you’ll carry with you for a lifetime. You guys are the fuel that drives our passion to be the best and we will continue to give it our all for many years to come.

Happy Travels!
