Loved this quaint little spot as the perfect place to stay in Yangshuo. I visited with several friends for a climbing weekend and we were well taken care of! Good from the kitchen was excellent (breakfast and lunch) and the owners helped us to arrange a climbing guide for the day. Very helpful!

Excellent service, rooms, food, and environment. Summarizing, the kind of places you would like to find every city you visit. Perfect to move around in bicycle and explore all the wonderful scenary and tourist attractions of Yangshuo. And the best: everything for a very reasonable price!!! I will certainly come back when I have the chance.

We stayed for three nights and had terrific stay. The owner and staff really went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay even organising a sing along with the owner providing the guitar backing. The location of the place is stunning in a lush rural setting. We will definitely stay there again and for a longer... More

Spacious, quiet private room. Discount because of off-season. Great food, not too pricey. Fantastic location to discover Yulong river and typical Karst landscapes, which are just a stroll away. Cheap but bad bikes - unmaintained and old - check the brakes - but they still get you around! The Hostel is surrounded by nature, off the busy roads, great terrace... More

A great place located just a bit outside the main area of Yangshou. Its a bit hidden away but if you look for the sign as youre coming from Ys its on the right side. Nestled in a little village next to the Yulong River it has good western offerings and really good chinese food. I always get the eggplant... More

What an amazing restful stay. Set in the lush green rural area of Yangshuo nestled between hills and a small river is this delightful well run hotel a little piece of China. Accommodation is in restored farm buildings but with mod cons. The lovely Dutch owner knows his craft well. The staff couldn't do enough to help but we're also... More

We stayed at the Outside Inn for 1 night during our Guilin area tour. It is an amazing hotel in the old farm buildings. The owners have done a stunning job. Best value for money! Very friendly owner and staff. If we knew beforehand how great the hotel was we would have stayed longer. You need at least 3 nights... More

We stayed at the Outside Inn for 4 nights and it was a very welcome getaway from the hectic busy China we've seen in the previous 3 weeks. The service was excellent, the team speaks English very well. There's good western food on the menu of the restaurant and the Chinese dishes are great as well. We rented bikes to... More

In the middle of nowadays overall Chinese building excesses, the owners of the Outside Inn managed to preserve a part of rural cultural heritage of Yangshuo from destruction. Together with local people they bravely turned a few farmhouses into a very cozy lodge. I can recommend it to every traveler who likes the comfort of spacious luxurious rooms, lovely people,...
