My honest and neutral review: Spent a week each in Guilin and Xinping. The host and team were accommodating, offering enjoyable activities. Time was a few minutes more, but downtime balanced it out. Humid air and mosquitoes were notable, though not the host's responsibility.

Result: I would recommend it. It’s worth it!

My time volunteering at Leo’s Wood-Fired Pizza Restaurant was an absolute delight from start to finish.
I was welcomed as part of the family and immediately given meaningful tasks to contribute to the restaurant's operations.
My stay at Leo & Snow's home was truly exceptional. From the moment I arrived, I was warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home.
Breakfast meal prepared by Snow was a culinary delight, prepared with love.
Thank you, Leo, Snow, Chun Xiao, Xiao Ma and Momo for being such gracious hosts—I can't wait to volunteer again soon!

I spent three weeks here, I went around the hostels that they have and loved it! Spent a week in Guilin and then in Xing Ping, Yangshuo. I am more of an outdoor person so Xing Ping was the best part of the trip. It was easy to communicate and get along with the staff, there are mountains everywhere so I was doing a hike a day, sometimes with tour groups and sometimes alone. Guilin hostel is busier than Xing Ping hostel, so they needed more help inside the hostel, basically helping out during breakfast, but in Xing Ping it was more taking people on tours. The staff is young and very very nice!
