This long running place is as good as ever. Lovely riverfront location on a leafy, quiet street. Helpful staff speak English. Just avoid breakfast which is dismal and does not include any beverage. Guangzhou is a very genuine, much underrated city by Chinese standards.


It's a bit hard to find and relatively far from the metro station. To be honest we just arrived late in the night, slept, and left early in the morning so I can't really give you a full review of it. However it was comfortable and looked quite decent.


The water pressure of shower is very low, it's very hard to take a shower confortably. Also, wifi is not working in room (twin bed private). Besides, the atmosphere and location is very good :)


Average hostel. The location is not really good for tourist.


I stayed two nights in a dorm. The facilities were fine, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There's a bit of a walk to get to the metro station, but it's generally in a good location, and quite pleasant - being next to the river.


Free clean towels would be amazing! Great hostel otherwise.
