Yangshuo XiJie Hostel Reviews
Great location, but that's about it. May 30, 2009
Excellent location, right opposite the main street. The hostel is the cheapest in the area which is the best thing about it.
After lots of haggling, Mr. Li gave us a great deal on excursions and also provided sound advice about the area and tours (even made us a free home cooked breakfast and dinner). However, he was very pushy about the tours and wouldn't leave us alone until we'd agreed to book something.
There are only two English-speaking staff members; the manager and his brother. When the are around they are very helpful, but the reception is almost never manned so finding someone to help can be challenging.
The shower is good but the room definitely needed redecorating. It all looked very old and worn.
When we checked into our room there was bird poop onthe sheets, which had come through the open window. The sheets were changed instantly, disturbing a big black spider which they chased into a corner.
I think this hostel has since closed down as it cannot be found on HostelWorld or other similar websites. Probably for the best.
