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

Can't say enough about what a brilliant hostel This Old Place was. Leo and his staff are always willing to help in any way possible, from planning what to do in and around the area to helping shape our itinerary for the rest of our month in China. Always keen to chat and learn about where we come from and... More

My expectations for Hostels are not very high, but this hostel is really very nice. We had a double room and it was absolutely clean, with a huge bed to sleep and a huge shower! So very comfortable!!! The people that work here are really very helpful for every case. We booked various trips with their help and our next... More
