We stayed with outside inn for three nights and we really liked the place. Cosy, clean, quiet, good food, good service and extremely affordable. 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.

We found this place on hostelworld.com, and i must say that this place def does not resemble a hostel and we had the most fantastic stay. The place is located outside of yangshuo, away from all the hustle in the middle of untouched nature. Thus, it is a great starting point to explore the surroundings of yangshuo (bonus: free bike...

Great staff, location is kind of nice and quiet and the room we had was well equipped and spacious. This small hotel also has excellent food and a nice choice between western and Chinese dishes. Team is very helpful, free use of bikes and lots to do in the immediate neighborhood.

We spent a week here as a family (two kids). The buildings are old and refurbished, giving a great atmosphere. The fire place in the common room is cosy if it is cold. There is a nice trek that starts right behind the house. And in ten minutes you can walk down to the river for a swim! And bikes... More

We spent a lovely 3 nights at the Outside Inn. This place has great atmosphere - Away from the hustle & bustle & tucked into the bush, we woke up each morning to the sound of the birds. This place was a real find & we much preferred our stay here to that of the busier Guilin. Fantastic service (special... More

Whilst I fully respect the opinion of other reviewers I cannot possibly agree with the comments that have been written about this establishment and can only relate to the time that we spent there. To begin with when booking we requested a quiet twin room and were given a first floor room with a large double bed of which the... More

Talk about a home away from home, we loved this place from the get go. From Australia we emailed them back and forth as to how to get to them and they were excellent with advice about trains and then arranged for a driver to collect us from the station. Our room was in the old Adobe brick building and... More

Based on a friend's referral, I've now stayed at Yangshuo Outside Inn twice, and had great experiences both times. On my most recent trip with a friend, the staff at the Inn was instrumental in helping plan my very brief stay: I was taking the train from Guangzhou, and wasn't sure how to get there from the Gongcheng railway station....

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
