    Good”

    I stayed 4 days and have no real complaints, I have since booked at their other hostel in Guilin. I booked a superior double room which was a little cramped but rooms varied in size. They were decked out in traditional wood which gave it a nice feel. Bed was fine , shower was luke warm most of the time. Staff were helpful , a little laid back. There are many tourists during the day, very quiet at night. Building work everywhere. My guidebook from 16 years ago stated there was only one guesthouse, there must be over 20 plus now. It still had a village feel though, friendly folk and more honest traders than Yangshuo. I chilled out but two days is enough to see most sights.

    THE PLACE IS GOOD, AND THE PIZZA IS DELICIOUS. IT IS A SMALL TOWN, AND IT IS NOT THAT COMMERCIAL. I LIKE IT A LOT, AND WENT TO SEE THE SUNRISE IN THE MORNING. THE ONLY THING I DON'T LIKE IS A MALE STAFF WITH LONG HAIR. HE IS QUITE WEIRD, BUT WE STILL HAD A GOOD TIME THERE.

    Dirty, staff is not very helpful”

    We traveled in Guilin area before and decided to try this hostel. Price for a tiny room is too expensive compared to other hostels. Staff told us many times that it is ok to book a scooter 30minutes ahead, unfortunately when we wanted to do so, no scooter available. Room was very smelly and not clean. Furthermore the road in front is currently under construction, everything dusty or muddy....anyway I would not recommend to stay here, unfortunately.

    Hi Nina, Thank you for staying with us,we are apologise for the scooter that can't be rent for you,as the owner of the scooter change his mine about returning it in Yangshuo,but now the problem is solved.About the construction,so lucky that it's already finished,now it turn to be a quite and beautiful town again.It's pity that you can't see the new face of her.Anyway,we welcome you to come to Xingping again:) All the best.

    Get to Xingping before it is turned into another Yangshuo”

    Aside from the ferry port at the river, which is mobbed by hordes of tour groups getting on or off the Li river cruise boats, Xingping is still small town China. There are no western fast food chains here yet, or Starbucks. The streets are still being paved and sidewalks are being built, along with new hotels. It is a pleasant change from glitzy Guilin and Yangshuo with a lot of great hiking right from the hostel.

    It is definitely a quite pleasant place to stay while visiting this "used to be peaceful fishing village". We had a nice view over mountains, which unfortunately ruined by the ravaging construction.. Do not expect too much from the staff, they are nice but not really informative. By the way, there is an ATM which accepts foreign cards in front of the bus station.

    The Hostel is right at the river, just 100m away. It is also near to the Bus Terminal if you are coming from Yangshuo for example. The roof top terrace is also nice. Don't miss the 20RMB viewing spot. But plan to stay at least for 1 full day to enjoy all the interesting places.

    Location, youth and view from my room

    I think this is the best place to stay in XingPing. Recommendation, if you not speak Chinese, batter to talk with stuffs:) the price for a renting a bicycle it side hotel more expensive than outside (the price outside 15 per day, in yangshuo 10 per day). The stuff is always ready too help, very good breakfast inside hotel, we loved it! In hotel a lot of foreigners, view from my window was the best!!! Ins easy to take a bus to Yangshuo 阳朔 8RMB per person! And I'm propose you to rent a biceckles at this cities, as yangshuo and other cities around are so different! Thanks to stuff:) we will come back again!

    Location, views, pizza

    Good couple of nights although we where unable to do any of the trips as due to the rain and flooding it was too dangerous to go out on the river. Because of the weather the whole place felt a bit damp. The roof terrace was great for some wonderful sunset views. The pizza was delicious and the breakfast ok. Would stay here again if we ever get the chance to return to Xingping. Staff friendly and helpful.

    Terrible stinky room.got burnt in shower ”

    The lock was broken. We had to spent 10min to open the door. The room stinks like shit. (the staff first suggested us to open the window to “let the air flow”, and then denied she smelt anything). The water was unstable: during the peak hour there was no cold water at all and the shower water got so hot that I got burnt and have to put my clothes back on with all the soaps still on me. There were shit-like spots on the tower. There was no apology nor any help when they finally agreed to give us a new room( we have to carry the luggage 4 floors all the way down to the new room, and another 4 steep, narrow, dangerous stairs up) in the new room the air conditioner was dripping water and all my stuff beneath it got wet. We were planning to stay 2 nights but after the first nightmare we decide not to stay here. The staff was so unhelpful and arrogant. They refused to refund the second night.

    The staff is lovable and speaks English a little. The location is good. But actually it is impossible to have a shower because no hot water. The wifi-internet is low : impossible to get your necessary websites, you can just send emails. But unfortunately you have no real other hotel solution in XingPing

    Fantastic, Xingping being quite a small place this really was a little gem. They have a stone oven and the pizza is incredible. Good location close to streets with things happening and right around the corner from a pier area to catch bamboo rafts. Our room had a great view of the mountains. Lovely area lovely hostel.
