Pros: The room had a nice patio with good view of a mountain.It was near everything because Xinping is not very big. Cons: The beds were cheap and uncomfortable, the breakfast was horrible, the coffee was the instant kind, and the espresso drinks were undrinkable. If you stay here skip the food and opt for the nice cafe in the... More

Stayed in double room. The rooms have a roach problem and need fumigation. They also have a musty smell and are not cleaned and maintained well. Staff are very helpful and speak english. There is wifi in the rooms. It is well located.

The YHA site has this listed as Yangshuo, but in fact it is quite a long way out of town, around 20 km or about an hour by bus. To get there you need to go to the South Bus Station, and small uses go there frequently for a few yuan. This brings you to the small town of Xingping... More

Stayed at this hotel with friends for three days. Loved it. The rooms are clean, food at the hostel is very tasty and the view the mountains around, just missing my head. Very good and fast Internet with access to all sites! I will definitely recommend this place to friends. My best recommendations!

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is good and easy to find. Great value for money. Would recommend to eat local restaurants rather than the hostel. Bamboo boat ride is fun and worth doing one way and then hike back, the hostel staff can help you with this. Just make sure you get to the crossing back over... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Why stay in the city.... when the riverside is SO AMAZING!Just 27 km outside of touristhotspot Yangshuo you will find the 'This Old Place Int’l Youth Hostel', a very unique youth hostel. We live in a small town named Xingping which has 1740 years old. It has the most beautiful riverview of the whole li-river erea. For this reason the riverside of Xingping is printed on the picture of the back the Chinese 20 yuan note. Our hostel is just located 50 meters away from Xingping port. So from some rooms’ balcony you may see the amazing riverview just the picture on the back the Chinese 20 yuan note. ... more   less
