Xingping is great and this hostel is nice, quiet and clean.
Very shabby looking hostel with damp rooms. The wood oven pizzas are pretty good however, and the rooftop terrace (despite the holes in the roof) offers a sweet view of the river Li. The area is good, Xingping is very small so easy to get around from this hostel. Staff were friendly enough.
Ex location with great views from rooftops Male at reception was very helpful planning walk and organising bamboo raft Very clean highly recommended
this hostel was just soooo amazing!!! in short: we extended our stay from 2 to5 days...!! the village is quite small and so much nicer than its bigger brother yangshuo. the hostel has 2 houses, both of equal standard. our 4-bed dorm roomand the other rooms we saw were newly renovated and very clean. the drain stank a little bit. i wouldnt recommand their breakfast. there is way better food inside the city for less money (try to find the chinese pancakes, ~100m up the street)
Had a very pleasant stay at Old Place. Its in a great location and really nice rooftop area with a lovely lookout over the mountains. the room is a bit dark because of no windows, otherwise alright. one point to improve is (as in nearly all youth hostels in china) the English skills of some of the staff. Anyway thanks to lovely Echo to help me booking my train tickets online, would have been lost otherwise
Really good hostel, with a helpfull staff and an amazing location!
I only have 500 characters to use and I can begin to tell you that's not enough. I found this place and was wondering if it would be too far, but the location is most excellent! Near 2 of the biggest attractions in xingping. Great to be away from the big cities and amazing atmosphere with yummy pizza and great accommodations for the price!! And the thing that absolutely makes this hostel a must stay is the absolutely amazing staff!! They're awesome & I wish I had more room to write

I'm so glad we stayed in Xingping instead of spending our entire visit in Yangshuo! This hostel suited us well, my boyfriend and I were in a 3-room dorm but there was no third person for the three nights we were there. Rooms were clean and comfortable (I think we were in the old wing). Wood fired pizza was really good! The staff was a bit hit or miss in terms of English skills, but mostly helpful.
We stayed at the absolutely wonderful This Old Place Hostel while visiting the magnificent Xingpin,China. From checking in to our returning the room key very close to check out time, we were treated like a king and queen! The entire staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate - we thank them all so very much and wish them all great happiness in their lives! We can only hope that they would have the same experience should they visit our home country,Canada.

A nice warm welcome with staff happy to let you speak Chinese, equally they speak some English. Adequate dorms with good beds and bedside electrics. a lovely roof top terrace with amazing views, even in February. Comfortable communal area with the odd film being played (English or Chinese). Probably could do with more bathrooms. showers, but as the hostel was not full this was not really an issue. Tucked away in a lovely alley, easy to find if you follow the instructions.
