Thought I would introduce our hostel into the mix. We're Wada Hostel in Guilin, China (http://www.wadahostel.com) and we've been around for 2 years and have loved everything about it so far. Guilin is a lovely and quaint city surrounded by limestone mountains and is truly sublime with its picturesque landscapes along the Li river. 2 notable sites in nearby counties include Longji Rice Terraces and Yangshuo. We highly recommend visiting our city if one has time to travel in China. We hope to learn a lot from this wonderful site and community and will continue to improve our hostel with its every bit of wisdom. Thank you.
