Nice hostel, they have a lot of information on everything to do inside the area. Friendly staff, room was fine!


Excellent place!


Awesome place with friendly staff with great location close to the old streets and river. Dorm rooms are single beds not bunks and have good aircon. Good common area with pizza oven that serves pretty decent pizza. Good wifi and decent shared bathrooms. The 20 yuan sunny breakfast is awesome!


Awesome place, friendly staff and great location close to the river and has a nice view from the roof. Dorm rooms are single beds not bunks and have good AC.


This is the yangshuo branch of a lovely hostel This Old Place. The town where the hostel is located is pleasant and quiet, and the hostel is an oasis away from the noisy and lousy West Street. It's not that much for a party animal, but who would want to go to Yangshuo for clubbing? At night we chilled in the lobby, hanged around with other travelers and played games. I enjoyed the homey atmosphere here.


Pros: Location 5th floor terrace view (amazing) Clean rooms Friendly staff Nice place to hang out downstairs Food is decent Cons: Hallways are loud, could hear everything, everyone was saying. Stayed in a single room, and the shared bathroom was on a different floor and right in the middle of the walkway up to the 5th floor terrace, so not much privacy.


Great hostel, would definitely recommend :)


The hostel overall was in a great location with likely the best views (from the roof) in the entire town. The rooms lacked much character, but the rest of the place made up for it. For single rooms and doors, the bathrooms were located outside. During the day it was no big deal, but at night there are lots of geckos and insects out and about which make it somewhat unpleasant.


Good location, helpful friendly stuff with very good English. Room was clean and a good size. Extra plus: pizzas there were awesome!


Very nice Hostel with friendly and helpful staff. The location of the hostel is perfect in Xingping right next to the mountain and the river. Nice view from the rooftop terrace. Rooms are clean, allthough it could have been broomed once in a while during the stay (2 nights). There is a cafe close to the Hostel named "this old place" with great food. All staff speak good english.


Cute and new hostel. The private double room with ensuite bathroom felt like a hotel. Very clean and neat. Staff is really nice and speaks English. The hostel has hiking routes suggestions that are easy to follow and really beautiful. I really recommend this place


We stayed in a double room and it was beautiful! I recommend you to stay there!


location value for money and atmosphere were nice. The staff though were quite unfriendly and not helpful. The owner though, helpful and trying to compensate his coworkers mistakes.


This hostel is located outside of Yangshuo, and that is exactly what I liked about it. It had a great atmosphere with friendly staff, while youbare surrounded by the scenery that is depicted on the 20yuan note. My only complaints (and for how cheapnit is, they are little) is the non ensuite bathroom for the dorms, and the overpriced bike hire (do yourself a favour and walk down the main street for 5min. There are bikes for cheaper, or better quality for the same price)

Great location, wifi in the reception area, air conditioning, and overall a great place to stay. Would definitely stay here again! Walls were a bit moldy in six bed dorm but shared bathrooms were decently clean. Atmosphere of the hostel was very chilled and relaxed. Not a place to party.
