Every night we have travelers from all over the world staying in our hostel. You can hang out with them, play pool, play cards, play and listen to music, etc. It is a lot of fun and very interesting. You will make lots of new friends from all over China. If you are interested in Chinese, Chinese culture, or just meeting interesting people, it's a great place to volunteer! You will be able to see the real daily Chinese life and learn much about the work in a hostel.

It is better if you speak Chinese so you can chat with the guests, but English is okay too if you are not Chinese. Many Chinese people are happy to practice their English with foreigners! We are looking forward to your stay with us!
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!
