My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights after we left over populated Yangshuo. The staff were really helpful and had a great sense of humor. They helped us to find some great walking trips and cycling trips. Definitely recommend!

We booked this hostel because we didn't know this area at all, we were thinking it's still Yangshuo. As it turned out this is very small village within about 40-60 km from Yangshuo. And there is no connection between this places after 7pm. As I understand it exists as a tourist place just because of that 20 yuan famous view...

Perfect base to explore Xingping and its surrounds. Hostel very close to river, unfortunately new constructions impede view, but central to everything. Old Xingping a delight, especially for a photographer, once many daytrippers desert the the area (before 9.30am and after 4pm roughly). Hostel facilities exactly what I want in a good hostel. Great friendly staff, comfortable areas for reading,...

They gave us good advise about what to do in two days. The bikes (MTBs) were not really good. They told us they were going to fix it. But check the chain, brakes...

Nice hostel, the staff is very helpful and they all speak English. The rooftop view is amazing. A good place to hang out after a day of hiking or biking in this beautiful area. I very much enjoyed my stay here

After 3 months of traveling throughout China, this is the best overall hostel that I stayed at. The disadvantage of hostels throughout China is that there is a limited understanding of western style hospitality. The employees at this hostel understand hospitality. All of the employees speak and understand English; (Many international Youth hostels in China neither speak nor understand but...

The staff was very friendly and spoke English which is a huge plus. The hostel helps arrange tours, has maps of the area including maps of hikes. Good wood-oven pizza, great breakfast.

We stayed at This Old Place in Guilin and liked it so we headed down to Xingping. This one was also nice. Dorm was small but clean and cosy. Bathroom areas were clean and close to the room. Communal area had character and lots of information on getting out to explore the surrounding area - cycle rides and walks. I...

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
