The hostel is only round the corner form the river, located directly at the street leading down to the pier. During the day the village and the street in front of the Hostel is very busy, mainly with Chinese tour groups heading for the boats. If your room is facing the street it might get quite noisy. In the evening... More

the hostel is located nearby the laozhai mountain so very convinient if you want to wake up early to see the sunrise. They have a very chill rooftop resting area. They also have very helpful little guide book on the frontdesk where you can book tours or check out the attractions nearby. Very helpful staff! The rooms and showers were... More

This hostel has a very cosy lobby with sofas, tables and a pizza oven. The rooms are fairly average and plain, but clean. Staff were very helpful in advice about where to go and how, as well as phoning to a couple of places where the staff didn't speak English. Stay on a market day (dates ending in 3, 6... More

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
