This a comfortable place especially downstairs in tbe communal areas, with books to borrow and helpful staff though tbr room, in the separate second building on the fourth floor , was tiny. The drains in the shower room were very smelly indeed! The staff fixed the bulb & the connection for the sink promptly, jusr another example of Chinese shoddiness.... More

It's difficult for me to rate this place. The building and location are fine, but the staff spoke only little English and was not welcoming all the time. With Yangshuo crowded by tourist groups, souvenir stands and touts we chose Xingping to spend three nights at the Li River. It was the right decision. This Old Place Hostel was a... More

Terrible from beginning 'til the end. When we wanted to make a reservation, we had to wait for 15 minutes because they were giving a training to the new personnel. When asking to book a train ticket, they said there were to busy, and had to come back in 30'. When we wanted to check in the next day, our... More

We had to walk from out of town as there was a horrendous traffic jam due to road repairs and coach loads of tourists. The hostel is well located within easy reach of the shopping areas, the river front and a nearby hill we climbed. Cozy room overlooking the street.

This hostel is in a perfect location in a lovely wooden building in Xingping town, 10-15 minute walk from the bus station. If you're after the best karst mountain scenery, Xingping is the best place to stay. The hostel has a cheerful lobby area with sofas and wooden benches, where they also serve excellent homemade pizza. There is a similar... More

Pros: Good beds, large lobby. New and well kept bikes. Cons: There are no banks in Xingping remember to withdraw before you arrive. Dishonest advertising at it's worst. We upgrade to a room with a view of the mountains and old style buildings, and what do we get? a view of a half demolished street. Not that I mind having... More

Located in a nice old building, this is a good place to stay with clean and nice rooms, although cvommon bath facilities are not always as clean. Wifi is only in the main lobby. Furthermore, try to get a room to the back and not facing the street as the traffic makes a lot of noise and potentially wakes you... More

As I was bagpacking alone, I decided to stay in This Old Place Intl Youth Hostel. The staff and boss were good in English. The manager even advised to take a short hike 老寨山 near the hostel to see the sunset. The wifi is kinda of weak but their pizza is awesome.

A beautiful, clean, well furnished and cosy hostel in a great location in Xingping. The staff is very friendly as well as helpful in organizing tours. They are also running a good restaurant just a couple of meters ahead. But also the Pizza from the wood fired stone oven at the bar in the hostel is a great option.
