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.


It was a wonderful, peaceful location and the staff were super friendly and helpful.


Very helpful staff, nice pizzza, good place!


The hostel is really nice and cozy, good atmosphere and helpful, english speaking staff. But there are only two showers and one wester toilet for the dorms, and they have no towels to lend so you should bring yours, and they ask you to undo your bed before checking out...


A very nice hostel fairly near the bus station and the river. Does very good pizzas!


Very nice Hostel ,quite near to the most spectacular view in Xingping, very nice and helpful staff, WiFi is not the best, the Pizzas are very good but bring some time with you especially when there are some other people orderd one before you. All over a nice place to stay some days. Tip : Rent a scooter or motorbike and discover the streets around xingping . Costs you 140 Rmb for one Day.


Good location and friendly staff. Recommended.
