Bamboo House & Hotel Yangshuo Reviews
Most comfortable (budget) beds in Yangshuo! Nov 08, 2010
The Bamboo House Inn has three locations in Yangshuo: The Bamboo House Inn & Cafe, the Bamboo House & Hotel and the Bamboo House & Hotel III. I'm not sure how the three hotels compare, but I think all three are pretty much similar. All three are promoted as hostels, though they don't offer dorm rooms. I think the Inn is the closest to a hostel experience, though the other two also have a distinct hostel vibe and offer everything a backpacker needs (food, advice, tickets, internet).
There's a plethora of activities which can be booked from the hotel. If you prefer to venture off on your own, they rent out excellent mountain bikes too.
The rooms are very spaceous, clean and very comfortable. I guess the granite bathrooms are an acquired taste, but I liked it. A nice change from the standard white.
Each room comes with a TV, DVD player, bath slippers and electronic mosquito killer (definitely needed in summer).
The Bamboo Houses are among the best-rated hostels on Hostelworld, though when you make a reservation it's not always clear in which one you'll end up. Does it matter? Not to me, all three are about 300 metres apart, all in a quiet street off the main drag. Of the three the Bamboo House & Hotel is the closest to the Li River.
I didn't try the food in the restaurant, but breakfast was ok. Huge portions, so definitely a good start for a day's exploring. The freshly baked banana bread comes highly recommended!
