Gulin West railway station to hostel by transfer or taxi.
Hello, I am arriving at Guilin West Railway station during the China National Holiday. My hostel is around 15km from the station. They offered me pick up service for 100CNY per way, but I think that the taxi should be a cheaper option for me, what do you think? Or I am thinking about the possibility to use the bus nr. 22 from the train station (the bus stop is a few meters from my accommodation). What is your recommendation, please? Thanks!

CNY100 for a pick up service is indeed a little bit too high. By meter, it should cost around CNY50 by taxi. National holiday is a peak season for travel, as a tourist city, taxi should not be hard to find at such a peak season. Bus 22 is much cheaper for sure, maybe you can compare the waiting line of bus and taxi and choosed between them.

The trains use both stations in Guiyang but if you are heading to Qingyan directly, North Station is a little bit closer, but still about 1 hour by taxi.

It would be around 100km, the price would over 1500RMB and takes 1.5 hours. Maybe you can also consider to go to Yangshuo by train first and then take bus to Yangshuo downtown and finally reach the hotel by taxi.

It is not a long distance, maybe only 20min by taxi. If you use an official taxi, it is safe to use. You can also contact the hotel to arrange pick up service for you. As I know, they have this service. The cost is not clear.
