Well located, clean facilities, comfortable beds. I wish the young man with long hair at the front desk was more friendly and helpful.
We were very pleased with our stay and would strongly recommend this place
Great place to stay and the views are great too.

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
