After 3 months of traveling throughout China, this is the best overall hostel that I stayed at. The disadvantage of hostels throughout China is that there is a limited understanding of western style hospitality. The employees at this hostel understand hospitality. All of the employees speak and understand English; (Many international Youth hostels in China neither speak nor understand but...

The staff was very friendly and spoke English which is a huge plus. The hostel helps arrange tours, has maps of the area including maps of hikes. Good wood-oven pizza, great breakfast. Overall we were very satisfied. We had a private room with balcony and had a great view. There's also a great roof-top area to hang out and see...

We stayed at This Old Place in Guilin and liked it so we headed down to Xingping. This one was also nice. Dorm was small but clean and cosy. Bathroom areas were clean and close to the room. Communal area had character and lots of information on getting out to explore the surrounding area - cycle rides and walks. I...

Stayed here 5 nights with my boyfriend. Big hostel, price is ok. Clean rooms. Pizza is good, about 40 yuan. Can dry clothes on roof. Nice to get away from the cities and chill out. Bring plenty of money and the atms do not work with foreign cards.

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.

I spent one night in the dorm (7 people), AC was kind of broken and didn't cool. Internet also not worked in the room. I saw pictures of a pool table and fusball table but also broken... They offer a free coffee if you write a positive review here, so take them with a grain of salt. On the plus...

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
