More like a Family Home than a busy hostel, this gem is wonderfully quiet and comfortable. What it lacks in facilities of a big place, it makes up for in homeliness, awesome view from their balconys, great location and lovely staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in GZ, and the Plum Flowers Hostel is a good part of the reasons why. Big shout out to Plum, who was gracious enough to help me with my Mandarin and went out of her way to make everybodys experience as smooth as possible. Thanks!
Superb hostel, it's actually an apartment turned into an hostel but there's a nice atmosphere inside thanks to the people who work there. They are really nice and friendly. The view from the balcony is also great.
Great place to stay, so easy to find from the airport via the metro if you follow their directions provided and takes max 30 mins. Staff so friendly and chatty. Ended up going clubbing with one of the Chinese staff and other traveller staying there. I had my own room, comfortable double bed and everything I needed for a 1 night stay. View from their balcony is beautiful, mountains and the city. LOVED IT!! Easily go back if I needed to stay in Guangzhou again. 23, English, solo.
My best hostel experience so far. Hostel just next to the subway. Very big room, big bed, even a balcony! Internet was fast and the family very friendly. Theres even a big swimming pool u can use for 15rmb. Awsome!
Nice atmosphere at the hostel, as if you'e staying at a chinese family's home (what it actually was, the owner of the hostel and his family (very nice people) lived there too). Also a very vivid atmosphere of the neighbourhood - you just live amongst local chinese people! Cheap food is just aroud the corner to get. The hostel has a chinese style and also western style toilet. Great location - the metro station is just near by the hostel and from there the city center is just a few stations away.
Had a lovely stay at Plum Flowers House, will probably stay there again on my way back through guangzhou.
Great guest house and a very nice family, you'll feel like you are in your own home :)
Plum Flowers offers an intimate view of Chinese life. The owners live in the hostel and are very attentive and accommodating. We are "senior" travelers and the owner and his family were extremely helpful with directions, laundry, and travel advice. The facility is in a large apartment in an upscale neighborhood. The location is convenient to the subway, which allows travelers ready access to all parts of the city. We look forward to another visit.

The stay was perfect and the hosts were amazing, who help you on every account (from directions for local restaurants to medicinal help!). They made you feel right at home. Throughly recommend to anyone!
2nd time I'm going to this guesthouse when I'm having some fun in Guangzhou. Again, it was perfect. Super nice hosts, feels like at home. Excellent value for money ! Thank you !
Thank you very much. I arrived mid night, but host wait for me and pick me up! very nice and kind.
Great little hostel! Nice big dorm room with a great view of the city. We really enjoyed hanging out here.
We really enjoyed our stay at Plumb Flowers House. It was so handy to be right beside the subway station. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The accommodation was spotless clean. Value for money wise it was superb. We had a lovely double room with a fab view and a balcony. It was a lovely experience and we have already recommended it to our friends.
Even if we arrived in the middle of the night, the host was very kind to provide us accommodation for the extra night. The location was perfect as it's on the subway line to the airport and to the east train station (to shenzhen). Very satisfied.
Chunhua is an excellent host! He's friendly, knowledgeable and familiar with his city. Will definitely recommend this place to all backpackers~
Chun and li are amazing hosts, very welcoming and helpfull. The guesthouse location is a bit hard to find and far from the main attractions but it is in a private neighborhood and just two minutes walk from the underground station. It should be noted that the guesthouse is the family apartment and you rent a room in it. The room itself is clean and basic with good air conditioner and the sheared bathroom is chines but decent.
Chunhua is very helpful. Helping me on booking train ticket. The apartment also in a good location, near metro. Stayed in dorm and have a good time there. Definitely will stay there again
The hostel is basically an apartment that has been converted into a hostel but can't complain with that. we had a good time and the staff were great really friendly and helpful and for a change in these places actually had some banter! the location was good to go explore some of the local area. Overall would recommend this place, Cheap, clean, friendly and just good fun
