We stayed in their apartment complex, which was just a few minutes walk from their main complex. The apartment room was nice and clean and the view from the room was very nice. Breakfast was not included, and was a bit more expensive than we were used to. The staff were helpful in answering questions. A taxi into Yangshuo town... More

Amazing place and amazing people ready to help you when you need. Surronded by the nature this hostel is very clean and cheap. It doesn't seem an hostel at all! I higly recommend it. Its 3km far from Yangshuo and is very close to Yulong river and amazing landscapes. You can rent bike here that are very convenient. Moreover the... More

We visited in July and had a fabulous five nights here with our four children. They were aged 2,4,8 and 10. After being in two rooms in big city hotels for ten days we all appreciated being able to stay together in the family house and to have space for the kids to play and hang out. The table tennis...

The rooms are spacious but rather basic, the bathroom even more. If you do not expect any luxury you will enjoy the tranquility of this guesthouse. Yangshuo is a few kms. down the road and can only be reached by taxi (or bicycle), fortunately the food served at the porch is delicious and not expensive. The personnel is very friendly... More

Couldn't wish for a better place to spend my days here in Yangshuo. Just a few kilometers outside of the city of Yangshuo lies this amazing place behind a few houses close to the road. Ronald, the owner, is super friendly and he gives you a lot of great tips over things to do here during your stay in Yangshuo,... More

The Outside Inn is a real find. It sounded attractive in the Lonely Planet Guide, and it outshone that write-up. The guest house rooms, simple and functional – including AC and shower - are in two-story adobe buildings. The area is hot and humid but we skipped the AC and used the fan and the mosquito nets; we acclimated very... More

Lovely renovated farm houses in a smallish village, tucked away out of sight. We only stayed one night so didn't have much chance to explore but the accomodation has been thoughtfully renovated, and the furniture quality and room standards are high. I had a massage in my room which was organised by the owners, I think foot massage is also... More

We spent four nights at the Outside Inn and found it to be excellent. The food was pretty good too, although we ate in quite a few places in the area which I can also recommend - The Giggling Tree (excellent crispy bacon and eggs) and The Tea Cozy (try the beer duck). Both are within walking distance. We had... More

We stayed 3 nights here and it was great. It is an interesting property based on old farmers houses in a small village right in the middle of the stunning kharst scenery. Our room was spacious with a.c. which is needed as it was very warm and humid. The staff are really good and extremely helpful, the food is a... More

Yuangshuo Outside Inn is a great place to escape from the touristic spots around Yuangshuo and experience the 'real China'. You sleep in authentic, old Chinese farmer houses, and the rooms are clean, large and provide everything you need. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Tip: explore the area around Yuangshou with your bike.
