The private room we had was refurbished so very clean and comfortable (good bed!). Location is good but a taxi is needed from the bus station. This is only 10 rmb so don't get suckered into paying 30 rmb! The hostel is good value for money and would definitely book again. Most of the staff were excellent and very helpful... More

We loved our visit here, it's well situated right opposite the rhong lake and round the corner from the sun and moon pagodas (walking distance, round the lakes). The tourist Office is just around the corner - go out of the hostel turn left and left again when you get to the lake then keep going straight and it's on... More

I liked this place because everything was simple, you pick your drink in the fridge and pay to the reception, you sit anywhere in the lobby and order a pizza ( just so so but cheap). The room are clean, the view is nice, the location is good. It is not really a family friendly hotel ( the family room... More

We stayed here for a one night stopover. The price you pay is amazing, the hostel is very clean. The rooms are very basic, but have everything you need. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is good. The location is in a quiet side street and a nice walk along the river to the restaurants and bars. We would... More

We only spent one "transit-night' here and This Old Place was adequate for this cause. The rooms are simple but clean, breakfast decent and they speak excellent English, which was helpful since we had trouble finding the place. (Note: The map in the Lonely Planet is misleading!) Better call ahead and ask them for instructions. And be aware if you... More

Friendly and welcoming staff who spoke good English. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the shower was hot and powerful. Nicer furniture than other places of a similar cost, so really good value. Would recommend!

Arrived at night and was pleasantly surprised at the comfortable yet warm place. Rooms are clean and well appointed. The pool table is a social hub and there is also a pretty decent kitchen here. Easy access and a good place to meet people to set out on exploring some of the most beautiful regions of China.

My friends and I stayed here for 2 nights, and were exceptionally pleased. There is a comfortable and inviting social area downstairs with a bar, pool, tv, and home-made oven-cooked pizzas. Not to mention there's a very spacious and relaxing rooftop area (covered and uncovered) full of chairs to hangout and drink or relax and admire Guilin's gorgeous mountains. The... More

This hostel is clean and the room is ok. Folks working here speak some English which is helpful. usual problems of the internet etc. exist. But the food is really bad! And also the breakfast does not happen at the times booked for us which caused us to nearly miss our boat ride to Yangshuo. So by all means an... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Here we have excellent facilities and warming staff. You may find it amazing that such a quiet and lovely place should exist in Guilin downtown. Roaming around the lake bank, you would meet cute statues of piggy and goose along the path, there are the local opera stage set on the river, squares full of dancing ladies in happiness. ... more   less
