The location was awesome and the staff was very friendly. We really only had two issues. First the bathroom toilet seemed to be leaking something that we hoped wasn't sewage. It didn't smell great though. They were booked so we were unable to switch rooms. The rest of the room was fine. Second thing was that we booked a trip to the rice fields with 5 other travelers. Then two of them ditched adn the trip was cancelled the night before. There needs to be some sort of guarantee for those.

The atmosphere in this hostel is strange, there seem to be a lot more mainlanders and families than younger travellers, it doesn't feel like a hostel. The common room is set out quite strange so people don't really hang out there. You have to put a key card in to get electricity so you can't charge anything unless you are in the room, which can be annoying. The staffs English is ok but they aren't the most friendly. It's clean but a very average hostel.

We had a great time at This Old Place International Youth Hostel! It's nice and clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The only negative thing I can think of is that it was very cold outside of the rooms and in the common areas but the AC in the room was great and the showers had really hot water! We actually booked our accommodation in Xingping through them and we got a discount since they belong to the same company. I can really recommend staying here!

I really love This Old Place! That I can still experience old Guilin in the midst of rapid urbanization is such a plus!

Excellent hostel right in the middle of the most scenic part of the city. Staff was really friendly, and it's located within walking distance of the touristy food and souvenir street and right next to a beautiful river park.

We LOVED staying here! The location is awesome, the prices are very affordable, and the views from the rooms are amazing. We stayed in one of the family suites and we had a great view of the water, palm trees, and karst mountains in the background. The staff were extremely helpful and nice, and gave us lots of advice on how to get to the places we wanted to see, as well as helping us book a trip on the Li River. Plus, they had kittens!!! Only complaint is the happy hour drinks were tiny.

Great location for a hostel, within a 20 minute walk to the bus station (for those going on to Yangshuo or taking a long-distance bus to other places) and central train station. The staff were very helpful when I asked questions about activities in the area. My only complaint is that I came in January, when Yangshuo was a little cold, and the room's heating system can only be activated when you are in the room (you put your key-card in a little slot by the door which activates the power).
