Why stay in the city.... when the riverside is SO AMAZING!Just 27 km outside of touristhotspot Yangshuo you will find the 'This Old Place Int’l Youth Hostel', a very unique youth hostel. We live in a small town named Xingping which has 1740 years old. It has the most beautiful riverview of the whole li-river erea. For this reason the riverside of Xingping is printed on the picture of the back the Chinese 20 yuan note. Our hostel is just located 50 meters away from Xingping port. So from some rooms’ balcony you may see the amazing riverview just the picture on the back the Chinese 20 yuan note.

Very good hostel to stay at in xingping, one of the only good hostels in the area. Has great facilities and amazing staff including western toilets, hairdryers, and hot showers. The dorm rooms are also very well done.

Great location - XingPing is awesome for hiking. I recommend Damian hill and Laozhai hill. XingPing itself has a good market 3x a week, which is fun. Really lovely hostel - particularly enjoyed the “dumpling party” (making and eating dumplings for just 15RMB one night)....More

You can go Xingping directly but not by bus, you have to take a boat from Guilin.
