Welcome to our hostel

Yangshuo Friends YH is set amongst the incredible mountain scenery of Yangshuo. Guests can relax on the bright and airy terrace which overlooks the rolling mountains and town below.

A choice of rooms, ranging from dorms, singles or family rooms, each come with en suite bathrooms, bedding and lockers. Some provide spectacular views of the mountains. Guests can enjoy a game of billiards, play football, watch a film on the projector and have a barbecue. Other facilities include a kitchen for guest use, free Wi-Fi, computers, washing machines and bicycle rental.

Explore the countryside by bicycle, explore the rice fields and pedal amongst the sharp mountain peaks. By bicycle, it’s only around 5 minutes to West Street, the oldest street in Yangshuo which dates back 1,400 years. Known as the ‘global village’, West Street attracts travellers from all around the world who want to spend the day shopping and trying traditional Chinese foods.

The hostel folk were welcoming. The room was very spacious and attractive with two big beds, a sitting space and a separate shower/toilet. Much more spacious than the photo portrays. Good bikes for hire.

Yangshuo’s good friends youth hostel was welcoming and comfortable. It is right on the edge of town in a location that makes walking to the hustle and bustle of Yangshuo an easy 10 minutes but affords a little piece and quiet. The beds were comfortable, views from the room windows beautiful, really fair price, bikes and a scooter to rent, great wifi access, and computers to use. I will definitely stay here again when I come back.

This is the third time I have stayed in Yangshuo Friends YH. Each time has been consistent with service, friendliness, convenient, clean safe, and environmentally green! I would say the only difference between Yangshuo Friend YH and other IHY i have stayed at is the atmosphere of family. All three times I stayed at Yangshuo Friends YH I never experienced a time to meet others from another country or from China. Possibly gather guests for a tour or sponsor an international Cooking Event.

accueil inégal: malgré réservation au préalable internet, pas de place à l'arrivée! hôtesse accueil peu aimable. Heureusement relogement dans batiment correct peu éloigné et meilleur accueil là bas, mais pas ambiance YH, plutôt hotel.
