Such a great place to stay! The location is perfect, few minutes walk to all the tourist spots. The place is clean, staff very helpful and the roof top view is unbeatable! We hiked up the LaoZhai mountain to watch the sunset, the view was breathtaking.

Excellent location, near to the old city area and minutes from hike. No noise at night and comfortable beds ensure a good nights sleep. Staff are very helpful and has a nice restaurant and café plus a rooftop area.

Very nice Chinese food inside the old town. We just happened to walk past and decided to eat here. We were not disappointed. Kids had spaghetti and pizza and parents Chinese. Very cosy atmosphere and if you ask for a fan then it's not very hot. Both parties were very happy and the staff was friendly.

Pros: The room had a nice patio with good view of a mountain.It was near everything because Xinping is not very big. Cons: The beds were cheap and uncomfortable, the breakfast was horrible, the coffee was the instant kind, and the espresso drinks were undrinkable. If you stay here skip the food and opt for the nice cafe in the...

Stayed in double room. The rooms have a roach problem and need fumigation. They also have a musty smell and are not cleaned and maintained well. Staff are very helpful and speak english. There is wifi in the rooms. It is well located.

The YHA site has this listed as Yangshuo, but in fact it is quite a long way out of town, around 20 km or about an hour by bus. To get there you need to go to the South Bus Station, and small uses go there frequently for a few yuan. This brings you to the small town of Xingping...

Stayed at this hotel with friends for three days. Loved it. The rooms are clean, food at the hostel is very tasty and the view the mountains around, just missing my head. Very good and fast Internet with access to all sites! I will definitely recommend this place to friends. My best recommendations!

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
