We stayed at This Old Place for one night in July 2013. Clean, comfortable room with good shower and air-con. The wifi didn't work in our room. Breakfast available but not included. Helpful staff with good English.

This Chinese YHA hostel is full of character, just what traditional hostelling is about. Yet it caters for the modern hosteller who is looking for a bit more comfort and facilities.... including wood fired pizzas made right in the bhostel. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculately clean, the staff are always helpful, there's a great view from the top deck...

A nice hostel extended by lovely views of the karst country. Rooms where en suite and air conditioned, breakfast was functional. The common area was lovely and in the evenings a movie would be played with was a nice touch. While not the easiest place to get to, but when you're here you'll realise it was worth it.

What a great spot to call home for a few days in the Yangshuo area. The rooms are clean and cozy (we stayed in the new part of the hostel, so I can't speak for the original rooms) with a fantastic view of the mountains from our 3rd floor windows. The coffee was excellent (although you can't order it until...

We stayed in the 'new' building and the room was clean and the bathroom clean and modern. Good location in a quaint town. We were keen for a woodfired pizza but the cook was unfortunately AWOL... Handy clothes washing facilities - washing machine and dryer available for use for a small charge.

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
