Why stay in the city.... when the riverside is SO AMAZING!

Just 27 km outside of tourist hot-spot Yangshuo you will find the 'This Old Place International Youth Hostel', a very unique youth hostel.

We opened in July 2008. We live in a small town named Xingping which is 1740 years old. It has the most beautiful riverview of the whole Li-river area. For this reason the riverside of Xingping is printed on the back of the Chinese 20 yuan note. Our hostel is located just 50 meters away from Xingping port. So from some rooms balcony you see the amazing riverview.

Most of our rooms (except the 3-bed-dorm, 6-bed-dorm, single room) have a private bathroom with western style toilet. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated with woodcarvings. Some rooms have a big wooden balcony with rocking chair so you might enjoy rocking back and forth seeing the sunset.

Many travelers/expats in China are delighted to come and stay at the most beautiful riverside. After traveling many big cities people are hungry for fresh air and amazing views. At the rooftop bar people will see the wonderful riverview, the fabulous old town and a superb sunset.

Our cooks can make the original Italian wood-fired pizza. In the evening the common area is a perfect place to enjoy great dinners and to meet other travelers. You can also watch movies, read and exchange books, play pool, fussball and use the internet.

The best way to explore the area is when you go slow; so either go hiking, cycling or take a bamboo raft. Your adventure begins the minute you step out of the 'This Old Place International Youth Hostel'.

Give yourself a break, finally get some rest on the Chinese countryside. While traveling China you probably already saw or will see many big big cities. Now this rural setting is a big opportunity for a change !

You may take the bus from Yangshuo south bus station to Xingping in the Yangshuo bus station. It takes 45 minutes and charges 7 yuan RMB. There's a bus every 15 minutes from 6 am to 7:30 pm.
(!!!TAKE ENOUGH CASH WITH YOU!!!Here we have ATM only for China Union Pay Card!!!)

    The place is amazing. It's nice to sit in the lobby and in the rooftop.. The stuff are friendly, and helpful. the beds are good and the room is confterble.. The only problem is that the dorms door do not lock automatically so most of the time the room is just opened for anybody to come inside... The location is perfect, just underneath the mountain that you can hike and not far from the bus station. Oh and the pizza is awasome! You should order :)
