Good beds and clean sheets . Lockers are small but big enough to put little backpack . The best part is staff - helpful and...

We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed it a lot. Our room had beautiful wood floors and walls. It overlooked the street and the mountains behind. There was construction ongoing across the street but it was no bother. WIFI and AC both functioned well. The location is very convenient to enjoy Xingping and as a home base from which...

We arrived here a week ago and have loved the place. The room we had was nice, clean, comfy bed, nice bathroom and a good view of the mountains. The staff are friendly and try to help however they can despite the language barrier. The location is close to the Li River and the nearby walks/hikes. The food and drinks...

We stayed in two ensuite rooms with our 20 year old son and 13 year old daughter. The lids really liked the lounge. My son rented a moped from the hostel and went off on his own rather that on the bike ride with us. You can get a cold gin and tonic from the bar which is a blessed...

Even when our stay there was nearly one year ago, I really have to recommend this place! We stayed there for four nights. At our arrival, we got an information-sheet about the possible activities around. With some help from the staff we could realize a lot of activities there. The hostel is located near the harbor and the center, and...

We stayed here for two nights. And one night in another visit. Xingping is really small town and this is the best place to stay in Xingping. Some of the staff of hotel seems to be well-educated college Interns. They can speak fluent English. They also have a restaurant in town, where you can get a discount if you are...

Only stayed one night here but the staff of the hostel helped us a lot. The room was pretty affordable, they have wifi, hot water, etc. Only could use few more electrical outlets. The staff at the desk helped us to figure out how to book our train ticket, where to go for a walk/bike ride, etc. Both staff we...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights after we left over populated Yangshuo. The staff were really helpful and had a great sense of humor. They helped us to find some great walking trips and cycling trips. Definitely recommend!

We booked this hostel because we didn't know this area at all, we were thinking it's still Yangshuo. As it turned out this is very small village within about 40-60 km from Yangshuo. And there is no connection between this places after 7pm. As I understand it exists as a tourist place just because of that 20 yuan famous view...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Why stay in the city.... when the riverside is SO AMAZING!Just 27 km outside of touristhotspot Yangshuo you will find the 'This Old Place Int’l Youth Hostel', a very unique youth hostel. We live in a small town named Xingping which has 1740 years old. It has the most beautiful riverview of the whole li-river erea. For this reason the riverside of Xingping is printed on the picture of the back the Chinese 20 yuan note. Our hostel is just located 50 meters away from Xingping port. So from some rooms’ balcony you may see the amazing riverview just the picture on the back the Chinese 20 yuan note. ... more   less
