A quiet and inspiring location...
A beautiful walk to West Street.
Our countryside hostel is located just about 1,5 km north of West Street in a picturesque village called Shi Ban Qiao, where everyday life plays in the valley below as it has been for centuries, abound of rice-fields, fruit trees, farmers ploughing their fields with water buffaloes, carrying their fresh harvest to the market, and where you may witness how locals celebrate a marriage, a birth, or the decease of a loved one, gain an insight in the local culture, all in the view from our cosy garden and our large front terrace!
At our countryside hostel you would be staying at one of the most scenic areas of Yangshuo with countless paths, roads and trails along the river, through farmlands and little villages leading to some beautiful ancient towns as Fuli and Liugong, Puyi in the southeast, Xing Ping in the northeast and Putao northwest.
And just around the corner, the Li-river provides an excellent refreshing swimming area at Yangshuo's most popular swimming spot and a bit further up north at the more privately 'secret beach'.
From our guesthouse to the center it's just a pleasant 15-20 min walk along a forest road and then a beautifully lit and covered pedestrian walkway along the banks of the Li-river straight into West Street, known for its lively bars and shopping scene. You will also pass one of the docks where you may arrive when you come from Guilin on a Li-river boat cruise.
We also provide a shuttle service that will get you in and out of the center in just 5 minutes per large and comfortable mini-van. Beware that taxi drivers in Yangshuo never use meters and will charge at least 30Y for any transfer between the center and the countryside so call us for a pick-up!
