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!!!)

    This is the friendliest hostel I have ever stayed at. Because Xingping is a small port town, there is not a lot going on at night. This means that most of those staying in the hostel are having dinner, watching movies, talking, or singing in the common areas. I enjoyed my time here and was able to connect with many other hostelers to go out for meals or take a hike in the area. Know that the deposit for your room key is 100 yuan, which can be three times more than the cost of your nightly stay..
