Me and my boyfriend arrived at the hostel after being recommended by someone we met in Beijing who said it was amazing. Although the hostel has a very good location, good facilities and cheap rooms the atmosphere (although very rainy) and the tranfsers offered to Guilin were expensive - you can do it via bus very cheap ! the staff...

This Old Place is a gem of a hostel because of the incredibly helpful staff. The location is convenient, the facilities are great (particularly the rooftop deck), the rooms are clean and affordable. Particularly impressive was the karst view out of our bedroom window. We stayed for two nights and could have stayed longer! From the moment we arrived the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights while travelling with my mom. It was a great base to explore Xingping and Yangshuo, especially if you want somewhere quieter as Yangshuo can be quite busy. They have two buildings and we stayed in the new building. The rooms are furnished in a traditional style and are basic but clean. It was lovely... More

The staff is friendly and helpful to all your needs. The location is right next to Lao Zhai Mountain with about 1100 steps with a view at the top that will knock your socks off. Bamboo rafting is also nearby on the Lijiang river and about a 15 minute walk from the 20 RMB note spot.

We stayed in this hostel 3 nights. The hostel is well located, the dorms are correct, and the showers and toilets are clean. They are probably better in the new aisle though. The restaurant is a nice place to rest, and the view from the top is beautiful. But we recommend the hotel especially for the staff who was very... More

We had a wonderful room with great views over the small ferry harbour into the distant karst mountains. AC and hot water kept us warm in the chilly December. The hostel has a great location into the trekking routes around Xingping. Free WiFi in rooms. The man in the lobby is one the most helpful staff I have ever met.... More

Cosy place for lunch or dinner, the lemon chicken was delicious ! Prices are less expensive than other western cafe in xingping. Good jazz music. Staff speaks english and will help you for the bus. Western food was good but not exceptional.
