Only a 5min walk to the famous 20Yuan view and go for the walk, not the boat because they're expensive. Just behind the hostel is a cool, but steep climb to a rocky mountain with a very cool view on the river. Go there in the morning. You can do a nice walk as well in the area where you'll... More

It's a YHA. Affordable and clean room. We stayed in double room with ensuite bathroom on 2nd and 4th floor of the old building. Not much scenery from room but the rooftop has comfortable seating to enjoy the view. The reception staff were not really friendly when we check-in, not much smile and enthusiasm. But after some enquiries and greetings,... More

I stayed in this hostel at Xingping from 5 Nov to 8 Nov 2015. There are 2 buildings, one is newly built. Rooms will be given according to the type of rooms requested. Hence, you may prefer the rooms in the new building as it looks newer. Rooms with river views or mountain views are great. The rooms overall are... More

The service staff, we would say, is really unfriendly, made us feel very unwelcome. Seems like it's one of the few that promote their hostel mainly to foreigners, thus would not care much if they have customers or not (like since they would come anyway) Room is okay, but it does not worth for this money overall. We went to... More

This hostel is located outside of Yangshuo, in Xingping town, and that was exactly what I liked about it. It had a great atmosphere with friendly staff. The hostel is a few minutes from the scenery that is depicted on the 20 RMB note. My only complaints is the overpriced, low quality bike hire. Overall, this was the best place... More

we stayed 2 nights here, which i was rather skeptical since it's call Youth hostel but we had a nice double , not very big but enough for 2 of us with attached bathroom ( to my relief). Located near the River and Hills. The old town is a short walk away if you like to wander around for souvenir... More

This is a charming wee hostel, nice staff, comfortable atmospheric bar area, sleepwell dorms through the way. When you need to move on (might take longer than you think) it's easy enough through Yangshuo/Guilin/progressively more busy. Maybe better to take a walk along the river, spend another night here? Very good pizza too. Settle down, amble round the corner for... More

A little hard to find due to the maze like streets but once you get your bearings you will find it well located. May be useful to look at directions first. Staff extremely helpful with a book they have put together of walks to take and things to do. Right next to Landzhai Mountain which is a must in XingPing.... More

i stayed here in april with two friends and was pleasantly surprised. I usually don't stay in hostels and staying in one in china worried me even more. We booked a family room for 3 and the beds were very comfortable and the room had a modern bathroom (with toilet) which was very clean and everything worked well. We had... More

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
