We stayed at the Outside Inn, Yangshuo for ten days in early September and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We have visited Yangshuo twice before and previously we stayed in town. This time though we decided to stay at the Outside Inn and we couldn’t have had a nicer stay. Our room was very comfortable with air conditioning, ensuite toilet & shower... More

The place is lovely! the rooms are in old converted farm houses and can only be described as rustic but charming - I had... More

My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The set up is very clean, rooms with AC and nice bed/sheets. Food was good and staff very nice. We went on a great 3 hour walk and the following day a 4 hour bike ride to Moon Mountain with a really nice local guide... More

The Outside Inn is generally a nice place - scenic, quiet, rustic, with a nice breakfast and friendly staff. But the first night, I had an unpleasant experience staying in a first floor room with a damp smell. I didn't think much of it when I first walked into the room, ignoring what appeared to me the smell of mold.... More

Outside inn in yangshuo is a superb place to stay. The rooms are converted farmhouse buildings. The reception area and veranda are very comfortable. The food and service is excellent. Just step outside and take in the stunning scenery. There's so much to enjoy right on their doorstep. You're a short cycle cycle away from the river, and from other... More

We were a group of 10 people between 25 and 32. We loved to stay here and had some very nice days in Yangshuo. The staff was very friendly and they helped us a lot by preparing our daytrips. Also the place to take a bath in the river close to the hostel was very lovely and we used it... More

We also rented a scooter one day which was a really Nice way of getting around. We did encounter two fairly large spiders though so have that in mind. This place is quite literally "outside inn"...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Outside Inn near Yangshuo. For us this was the best place in all of China: excellent room, great location, good food, friendly service. We especially enjoyed the carefully decorated room and riding the free bicycles along Yulong river.

Very friendly place to stay. We stayed in the annex and it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the staff extremely helpful. They have bikes that you can borrow which is a great way to have a look around the surrounding countryside. Great value for the price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yangshuo Outside Inn - The Original Countryside Experience. The Outside Inn is a friendly small guesthouse with a unique character, located in a set of traditional farmhouses and an apartment building, ideally located just outside Yangshuo in a beautiful setting with lush gardens and the karst peaks right at your doorstep. The traditional farmhouses are renovated into comfortable rooms and family houses with western standards. Close to this complex of farmhouses is our apartment building with more modern family apartments and rooms. The Outside Inn offers guests a very quite place where you can experience the real traditional China. A stunning swimming spot at the Yulong River is a few minutes walk away and if you want total peace you can walk in 20 minutes to "The Lost World Plateau", a small field up one of the karst peaks where you are just by yourself surrounded by the mountains. ... more   less
