Well located, clean facilities, comfortable beds. I wish the young man with long hair at the front desk was more friendly and helpful.

We feel sorry to know that you did not that enjoy your stay with us. Usually the guy in the front desk you mentioned is nice and getting highly praise from our guests. We think that maybe some misunderstandings happened. :( Anyway, we will try to give better performances to our guests. Best wishes!


We were very pleased with our stay and would strongly recommend this place

We are glad to hear that your had a lovely time with us!! Your satisfaction is our greatest wishes! Welcome to our hostel again! :)


We originally only booked one night here, but ended up staying two. You just can't beat the view from the new wing. Xingping is a less touristy, smaller version of Yangshuo in many ways, so if you're passing through it anyway, why not stop for a night or two? We had a lovely bike ride through the countryside, saw the 20 yuan note view, and watched cormorant fishing. Be aware that Xingping is NOT Yangshuo, although it is listed under Yangshuo. This caused a lot of confusion for fellow travelers.


An amazing hostel in an amazing place. Hostel staff was very helpful and gave lots of useful tips. Special thanks to Runny who hiked with us and showed the nearby villages, and who helped us to communicate with local people. We highly recommend it if you want to stay in a magical place which is not as crowdy as Yangshuo. Thanks again! Martyna & Lukasz
