Date: 23rd of Apr, 2019 - Great stuff, great food, brilliant location but damp rooms - 3/5 on Tripadvisor
We have spent a lovely week here, visiting most attractions Yangshuo has to offer.
Location is superb, great to explore some with the inn’s free bicycles.
We were looking forward to our meals every single day. Did not even think about trying somewhere else. Loved the local food. And anything was possible vegetarian friendly version!
Atmosphere is really good. Continue reading..
Rural, hostel, “Bauernhof”-like.
All staff are very friendly, but must highlight Wendy. She is exceptionally good. Ready to answer any questions any time, help plan tours and make the best of your stay.
The only thing we did have an issue with, was that everything was constantly wet.
Bedclothes, towels, our clothes; so we kept all our clean clothes in our suitcases, to keep them dry. (there are no cupboards to unpack anyway). We are not sure if it is only now, as it has been raining a lot, or it is normal here. The smell is a bit disturbing after a while.
It is manageable, but we did not expect this after previous descriptions/web page/ and room pictures...
We came on our friends’ recommendation, but must admit, years passed by, and it feels the shower and room could do with “some” touching up. View Less...
Date: 22nd of Apr, 2019 - Friendly staff - 3/5 on Tripadvisor
We visited the outside Inn as a family with teenage kids. As we were looking forward to a countryside holiday we weren’t disappointed by the whole area in-and outside the Inn.
-very nice staff especially Wendy was so helpful and always warm and welcoming
-food is great on a good pricing also if compared with close-by restaurants
-bike rental is included
-other guests are mostly western tourists with a interesting background (like diplomats, expats from all over)
-bed and lining is nice and clean
-activities arranged by the outside Inn are interesting and on reasonable prices
-Outside Inn is in a authentic surrounding. Continue reading..
..with chicken and ducks running around, a friendly cat and a baby dog
-unfortunately rooms are definitely in need of a good clean up
-some mayor renovation has to be done e.g. fix the bathroom door for closing, fix the lightbulbs in several lamps, fix the air condition that it would work at all (we informed staff ad arrival but nothing happened)
-rooms are damp and have a heavy smell of mold
-after a 3 day stay literally everything is damp and has a bad smell of mold
-as air condition isn’t working nothing ever dries...feels like living in a swamp
-unfortunately the nice view from the tea house is spoiled by a new 4 story building
All in all it’s a friendly place for very basic rooms...if you like to stay more comfortable there’s lots of alternatives around.

The third time within 1 year I stayed in the outside inn for more than a week. The tranquility, the always friendly staff, the great location and beautiful excursions. This hotel gets 5 hearts from me.

We stayed here as part of our china trip. Really authentic old building. Rooms were very spacious and had great air con. Not many bugs at all considering it was so rural. Food was spectacular. Continue reading..
Laundry service available and cheap. Really cozy feel to the outside Inn. Would recommend staying here instead of in the main town of yangsho. View Less...

Review for the restaurant only. The food here is delicious, the hostess second to none. Recommend the Snoozing Dragon, Pineapple Chicken, Bamboo Shoots with Mushrooms, Lasagna and the home made Apple Pie.

Shake off your first-world mindset and stress. Walk across the threshold of the Outside Inn and you will be instantly transported to a slower pace of life. It has a slightly “hostel” vibe in the common area, but the rooms are far nicer that those you may remember from your backpacker days. The Dutch owner adds his own touches to the place and the food is fantastic. Continue reading..
Factor in the very reasonable prices and you have the recipe for a fantastic stay. Enjoy! View Less...
Date: 17th of Apr, 2018 - The place to be! - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
Beautiful and quiet place to stay. Staff is very friendly, food is excellent. For me, it was the second time I stayed here and I will definitely come back. What makes it special for me? Waking up in the morning with the sounds of birds, starting the day with a good cup of coffee, friendly staff with a smile, walking and biking in the surrounding nature and in a 20 minutes bike the hustle and bustle of Yangshuo. Continue reading..
Bikes are available at the hotel. Even for kids it's a nice place. Next time I will bring them with me (16,13,11). There is a pingpong table, pool table, etc and they can play safely in the neighbourhood. Showers are fine, rooms and beds very good. I can recommend this hotel to everyone, for a short stay and definitely for a long stay. View Less...
