Nice and clean hostel with beutiful rooftopterrasse. The staff is helpfull, in the Lobby is wifi.
The hostel is good no complain, but may be 1 or 2 guess using the public computer too long to watch movies. cos sometime need to check emails on flight and others infor. have to wait for him to finish the movies. And,we stay for 3 nights/ 4day supports to have 1 free breakfast, but check with staff, she said only free on the 4th day, but unforturnely, we have to leave early to catch our flight unable to enjoy the breakfast ( they open 8.30am ) Should be flexi day, cos already fully paid bill.

Although this hostel had an air-con unit, it was totally ineffective because of it's position. I think they need some fans, to circulate the air. It was baking hot all night I didn't sleep at all. The bathroom sink was located inside the room, so when one of the girls started drying their hair at midnight, it was annoying. Also, I thought the bed was uncomfortable.
Close to metro so very good base from which to explore Guangzhou. Awesome roof terrace to relax on though there wasn't any other backpacker presence during my stay which is a shame as it's a cool space. Big rooms, though beds leave you in a bit of pain after a few nights as very harsh mattresses. Door frames don't have much tolerance so the heat gets them jammed, which gets old after a while. Main hostel entrance is however completely secure with entry key which is really good.
I spent 2 nights there. Very happy about it. People are friendly. there is a roof top which is perfect for the last beer of the day. The location is perfect, very close to a metro station. Room was good, very large, with proper AC.
The staff were very nice about changes in our length of stay due to changing circumstances.
Great location. Minutes away from subway station with 2 lines. Clean rooms, fast internet, common areas and cafe. The only problem is the showers is in the room, will disturb others if you come back late.
The best thing about this place was the convenient location to the Subway. It was less than a block away from the subway in a Chinese neighborhood. It was also very peaceful, alongside a canal. The staff were friendly but could improve at helping tourists with ideas. It was a little difficult to find at first. Exit subway and turn left and walk to the end of the road. The hostel is at the back of a gravel parking lot on your left.
second time staying here. right by the metro station. lots of shops and restaurants around. i really like how secure the hostel is. some of the best security ive seen in a hostel. should expand the common room.
This place was great. Stayed for 3 nights. Beijing right on the Metro line 1 made it really easy to get around Guangzhou. The staff were really friendly and helpful and having access to WiFi and aircon in the middle of summer was amazing!!
