This Old Place International Youth Hostel Xingping Reviews
Friendly Hostel in XingPing Nov 19, 2009
This Old Place was a decent place to stay. It's a 40 minute drive outside of Yangshuo, and is located on the Li River within XingPing. It's a great location to head out for hikes and outdoor activities. The staff are all very friendly, and the common area is nice and big and cheerful.
The biggest downers are that it's absolutely freezing in the winter, and the showers are outdoors on the roof. ROUGH to shower when it's so cold it hurts and you can see your breath as you're showering. That was the case for many of these remote areas in China, so not to be blamed solely on this place; they just don't have the heating to offer.
The guy who runs the place is really nice and well traveled, and extremely knowledgeable about all the little nooks and crannies in his country. A great resource.
