Hostel has simple but very clean rooms, modern bathrooms and showers, we loved the opportunity to sit outside on the terrace, even if it's raining. It also has a big hang out area with couches, pool table, a big flatscreen, books and DVDs. Staff was nice, very helpful and spoke English quit well.

I stayed there with my family in a 4 bed family suite with lake view. Although my parents were suspicous about staying in a hostel, I told them that they would like it. And they did. This place is perfect for backpackers, cheap, great facilities, super nice staff and cheap and good breakfast but also for families. I would always go back there again. And ask at the reception for the kitten if you don't hear it screaming from somewhere. It's just too cute and makes every stay lovely!

We had a terrible experience. It is such a shame because the hostel is lovely, but the staff were the most unhelpful, horrible people we came across over our entire stay in China. Awful service DO NOT STAY HERE! They were so rude when we arrived late (delayed flight) even though we rang ahead. They twice asked to keep our passports in a safe during our stay (no way!), so unhelpful regarding excurisons, refused to make us food on two occasions, gave us wrong travel information so we got stranded.

Staff was great and helpful. There are a lot of materials available to plan your hikes, rafting trips, tours, or what have you. The wood-fired pizza was delicious and movie night was a nice touch. I would definitely visit again.

This hostel is right next to a beautiful lake and park in the middle of Guilin and it's close to the train station and bus station. There's hot and cold water available, TV room, nice common area, etc. The rooms were very clean and ours had some heating, which was nice since we were there during an unusually cold period. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the atmosphere in the hostel - the breakfast tables, the pool table, the place where you can watch a movie in the evening. It was a bit cold in the rooms though.

Because of my short stay i didn't use the shower, so I cannot evaluate them. Everything else made a clean impression, The recommendation for restaurant was great: very cheap and delicious. In general good price-benefit-relation for this hostel.

Simple but Nice hotel, very well located. Only negative point...the expensive price of the taxi when it is booked by the hotel (we paid 130 instead of 70 with the meter)

Hi, Thank you very much for your review and recommend.We're glad you enjoyed your stay here. About the taxi fee :We call the taxi driver from other place come to our hostel pick up you,then directly to the Guilin ariport .Beause the taxi driver don't run the meter from Guilin city center to Guilin ariport basically,so it's more expensive . We hope you could understand. Thanks a lot. Best regards This Old Place

The hostel is great, the staff is very nice and helpful (good atmosphere!). Also it is very clean and quite comfortable. They offer tours. We did the one for Yangshuo, we had a great day though we paid for a boat ride + a hike and the guide didn't let us hike. Instead he offered us to pay 100 yuan (too expensive) to get to do another ride and see a water buffalo. This problem is not the responsibility of the hostel and they appologized for that. Just be careful with the dishonest guides.

My friends and I spent one night at "This Old Place International Youth Hostel". We had a three people bedroom, which was very big and clean. Staff is very helpful in case you need information. In this hostel, you'll find a beautiful rooftop with an amazing view of Guilin karstic landscape.We really loved the atmosphere... It is moreover well-located. Pretty close to the night market. 2 mn walking from the bus that drives you either to the coach terminal or the railway station.

Nice common room with a pool table and a tv corner. Food was delicious and reasonable priced. We liked the roof terrace although its not like a bar, just tables and chairs. But you can still enjoy the view. We would stay there again.
