We had a wonderful three night stay here. The staff was so nice and helped us with our plans for each day. They would help arrange anything for you ahead of time and give you recommendations of where to go/what to do. The breakfast was 40 yuan but is very filling. The rooms were nice and clean. We were very... More

Our room was big and extremely cleaned! We had nice views of the mountains and all tne facilities (Ac, soap, blankets, a samll machine for boiling water...). There is also a common area where you can eat, drink beer, watch movies, read a book or use the computer. They have also bicycles for rent for 20 yuan/day. But the best... More

Stone Bridge was an amazing experience and allowed us to see a different side of Yang Shuo. The owners Jessie and Ah Long fast became good friends and were instrumental in making our stay such a memorable one. The location of Stone Bridge initially seemed like quite a way out of town. But we soon realised it only takes about... More

This Hostel was absolutely perfect! It's very clean, well kept, and the owners give phenomenal service! They are a very friendly couple! The location is great and in a beautiful area. Right outside of the shopping area which is a lot more peaceful and feels like you are in real China. This honestly does not feel like a hostel, but... More

The facility itself (room, furniture, bathroom, building) is 2-star quality which can be expected as this is a B&B. The reason to go here are the owners who are really helpful and friendly. We got some awesome hints and advice from them. They rent bicycles at a reasonable price which is something I recommend as it makes getting everywhere a... More

2 Star? a little harsh but fair enough :) we do have a simple village building with basic furnishings but its quiet, safe, clean, the rooms are big, no huge and the bathrooms must be the biggest in Guangxi. This is where Great Value comes in, we are priced accordingly, as the rooms lack character and opulence this is reflected... More

This hotel delivered everything good we saw on the reviews. It is clean, the rooms are really fine, the staff is amazing and helpful. However, the location only suits those who really want to stay away from the noise and turbulent center of the city. It takes about 20 minutes walking to get from the center to the hotel, which...

Hello and thanks for your input on visit to Shibanqiao village.

Anybody looking to stay in a nice cool mountain valley with a sparse population, out of town but not so far out of town that you can;'t walk there in ten minutes, should try this place. Owners are warm, homely people, speak both Chinese and English fluently. Rooms are clean and big and simple. Very peaceful on the balcony. Woz... More

We spent a few days here, and had a great time. Jessie and AhLong are great. The atmosphere here is very relaxed and the Stonebridge is only a short walk out of the craziness of the city. Jessie and AhLong are always able and willing to help with plans for the day, and offer ideas or assistance as needed. I... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Stone Bridge "Home Sweet Home in the Valley"Are you looking for the Countryside Experience in China? YANGSHUO has it -Glorious Karst Mountains set in rural farmland. The town of Yangshuo is a typical Chinese town, it’s vibrant and busy both day and nights. Days are the time for exploring the area in all its wonders and the nights are for eating drinking and having a great time. When it’s time to rest and get a peaceful night’s sleep, it’s time to leave Yangshuo’s rather loud club and party noise and Escape to the quiet Village of ShiBanQiao aka Stone Bridge Village. 20 min walk from West St / 5 min bike ride / 2 k north of town and your home :)Once well rested and after a terrific breakfast, hosts Jessy and ahLong are only too happy to hand out advise on local and regional travel. Anything you have come to see and do, your hosts can assist with, such as buying tickets/tours/bike hire/laundry and so on. Local knowledge from long time China residents fluent in English and Chinese. This Aussie couple runs by far the tidiest/cleanest hostel in China with recognition from Tripadvisor with 2 x Travelers Choice Awards 2013 & 2014 and from HostelBookers for Best Value 2013.There are 9 rooms in total, so we are a small husband and wife operation who personally take care of all your needs so that your visit to Yangshuo was the highlight of your China holiday.With an Eco Friendly approach to running the building we set examples in reducing our environmental footprint, we work to keep Yangshuo clean and beautiful for you to enjoy. Relax in our Deluxe or Ex. Deluxe rooms in a spotlessly clean B&B / Homestay Type guesthouse. We have closed our dorm rooms and rearranged the room layouts to offer more and better choice to you, the Special Guest. The Stone Bridge treats everyone with extra care and can arrange rooms to suit you. Rooms have rice paddy views and mountains or village and mountain range views, Ex. Deluxe rooms have an outside balcony. All rooms have reverse air conditioners and the western styled bathrooms are a pleasurable surprise. The rooms have free Wi-Fi, soft beds, rain shower with hot water, towels and shampoo/body wash is supplied. A wardrobe for your belongings and coffee free (1st night Only), a kettle is supplied to make boiling water for food/drinks and you may eat in your room. We do have a small kitchen on the ground floor serving breakfast, lunch and dinner-a mixture of Western and or Chinese food. Other food /snacks should be obtained in town before coming home as there is NO store in the village. We however are stocked with F&B and open for breakfast at 8am till 10am. Great sandwiches and snacks can be enjoyed all day and dinner is a family styled sit together where usually, a Local styled Chinese meal is served, often it’s a mix of local, Cantonese and western food. ... more   less
