Stayed here for three nights. Really good value for such a small price. Staff was PERFECT: upgraded us to a nicer room because it was off season, hiked with us for a day, explained us how to play chinese Majong card game one night, and one staffmember traveled with us on her way to here parents and was a luxury since she could speak Chinese which ofc saved a lot of time. Room was clean and kept clean, warm showers, nice commonroom with backpackersvibe and location is superb. 10/10

Very nice youth hostel in a typical Chinese village. Very nice and helpful staff with great advice regarding local activities/hikes. Delicious home-made pizzas! However, we were there at the end of November and the common room was really cold one night since there was no heating downstairs... And the water for the showers were also quite cold...! But definitely a great place to enjoy Xingping! :-)

Enjoyed our stay. New windows being installed to help reduce noise in upcoming construction and hopefully make the rooms warmer. Otherwise warmer quilts needed

Lovely hostel with very helpful staff. Bathrooms in the old building are cramped and I never managed to have a warm shower there. Noisy tour groups began at 8 every morning but it would be the same all over town. Terrific staff. Good breakfast deal. Need better directions from the high speed train station.

Thank you for your suggestion.First we apologize for the inconvenient of using the hot water. It's the hot water system's problem what we need to solve now.And we will add more information about the direction of the high speed train on the website,thanks a lot.

A really well run, friendly hostel with an excellent value breakfast and good staff. Ask about a buy two nights get a third night free deal if you plan to stay longer (maybe only in low season?).

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for staying here. Yes,we have a promotion in low season now,if you stay 3 nights here,you can get the third night for free. But the most important thing what we need is that, giving 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 !

One of the best hostels i have ever been too. Amazing location. Get a beer and head up to the roof terrace for sunset! The owner was really nice and went out of his way to take us to visit a local cave.

Our room was too small and not very nice - we stayed in much better hostel rooms for a lower price. But the rooftop terrace was great!

I had an excellent one night stay after a long cycling tour at this laid back and beautiful place. I like that almost everything is made out of wood. It gives it a rustic atmosphere and it just smells good :-). I highly recommend staying here.

You should increase the rooms from your 2nd building. The main building is fine, but the rooms in the other are not very nice

The perfect place to calm down after a few days yangshuo. Besides the incredibly nice privates (value for money is astonishing) you are provided excellent views and short walks to the scenic places of xingping's beautiful scenery. Experience nature!
