The Cosy Garden is everything you had expect from its namesake, a warm welcome and a cosy getaway to relax from all the stresses and chaos of the big Chinese cities. Why not swap the neon lights of west street for the warm glow of fire flies and the town's disco music for the smoothing sounds of frogs as you enjoy the true Chinese countryside in its timeless glory.

The Cosy Garden offers:

-A beautifully designed garden, crafted to give you a great social area with garden chairs and hammocks to sit back and enjoy the stunning views out over the paddy fields of the village.
-Lounge area with open stone fire place for cosy winter nights, comfortable sofas, games, TV, music.
-Front terrace with pool-table and one stop reception/tours desk/bar area with espresso coffees and Belgian Beers.
-Free wifi + free pc use.
-Washing service / bike-scooter rental / airport transfers / extensive travel information

Please note that we encourage a social vibe as much as we can, however we are not a heavy drinking, loud party place as there are plenty of places like that in town just a short bike ride away if you like. We choose our location in this village to offer people a calm, fun and relaxed environment where everyone gets a chance for a good night sleep and start the day with the batteries fully charged!
Prices are per person per night.

Generally, we can arrange a taxi to pick you up from Guilin airport, Guilin City, the train- or bus station or any hotel, any time, day or night. This way it is easier to find our hostel and you don't have to worry about being cheated. From Guilin airport the lowest fee is 280Y(1h30min), day or night. For a safer and faster option, add 30Y for the tolls on the expressway (1h10min, 310Y). From Guilin center, bus- or train station the standard fee is 200Y.

For detailed information on how to get here by public transport, see the online Yangshuo-Insider guide.

Directions from Yangshuo center > from anywhere in the center, go to the Li-river, turn left and follow the road aside the river (keep the river at your right hand side), always keep going straight ahead, passed the yellow covered corridor. When the road bends away from the river (1km) do not turn right at the crossing but instead continue to follow straight ahead and soon - after 500m - you will enter the village head up the left side of the valley and you will find the Cosy Garden about 150m up on the right hand side of the road.

Located Near

The Cosy Garden is set in the lush green valley of ShiBanQiao, 1.4km North of the old center of Yangshuo with its lively bar and shopping scene at a perfect distance. The village has remained unspoilt by tourism, the locals still go about their daily business tending to their crops whilst keeping a watchful eye on the water buffaloes as they meander around the village, dogs run wild, grandparents sit on porches playing with their grandchildren, simple daily life in all its beauty.
