A Welcoming Haven in Beautiful XingPing
Just 27 km outside of tourist hot-spot Yangshuo, in the historic and picturesque village of Xingping lies 'This Old Place', a youth hostel like no other! Based in a town which is over 1740 years old 'This Old Place Xingping' is the ideal location to enjoy a holiday which combines adventure, sightseeing and traditional local culture.

With the river Li a short walk from the hostel, and the breathtaking Karst mountainside visible from our rooftop terrace or your balcony, you will be truly immersed in the beauty of the region during your stay. If in doubt, just take a look at the 20 yuan note - the iconic scene imprinted there is just a few footsteps from 'This Old Place'.

With so much to explore in the local area, you won't be bored! Why not embark on a variety of hiking and cycling trails, take a trip on a bamboo raft, get an insight to Buddhism with a visit to the nearby nunnery, or walk in the footsteps of US President Clinton at the neighbouring fishing village. Your adventure begins the minute your step out of the 'This Old Place Int'l Youth Hostel', and as soon as you're ready to relax at the end of the day, our lounge will be ready for you, with a variety of organised activities, or even just the opportunity to read a book.
