Very simple hostel with clean dorm rooms. Went in the dead of winter and with the heater, was semi comfortable at night with regards to temp. There is a cute little longue area and the washrooms were fine. I recommend taking the trip to the rice terraces - they're gorgeous and it was worth the money.
Comfortable and clean.
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.
Everything is nice there,Transformation from an old hotel.rooms really big and clean. Internet worked good.simple hostel.It is not a place where you would want to stay more than couple of days.I was smacked down the walls of the roof collapse
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.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, the location is quiet but good for exploring the city. I just stayed one night but enjoyed my stay very much and if returning to Guilin I will definitely come back to "This Old Place".
Hostel definately worth recommending. Only in december there are not too many people.
Its a great hostel, the staff is efficent and very helpfull. The place is nice and the food is good.
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)
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.
Location fantastic, rooms really big and clean. Internet worked ok for me and i tried the Pizza, which i thought wasnt that Bad. I have had worse, Even in italy ;) can definitely recomend it here, best Location in guilin
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.
Nothing to complain, great location, helpful staff. I enjoyed the time I spent there.

I came into my room and saw a 7cm long cockroach ... The staff didn't really want to help me with my trip plan - difficult thing when one doesn't speak Mandarin ... Go to Wanda Hostel, that's a good place to stay in Guilin! The girls are angels!
Really good location and a very nice place to stay.
A lovely comfortable hostel, although a little quiet. Offers great deals on tours (in particular the bamboo raft ride to Xingping) The wifi wasn't great in the rooms and on the last day the wifi was not working at all which meant that we couldn't book our next hostel :( Overall a nice stay!
This hostel could also run for a 3-star hotel: rooms are big and bright, well-equipped and extremely clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect in terms of safety and with many sights and places to eat nearby. What else could you ask for? I can definitely recommend This Old Place!
an exzellent one, would go again!
