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.

A friendly atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff. There are ample small street restaurants and local markets close by. Excellent city metro just a 5 min walk or buses and ferries directly in front of the hostel. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned professionally everyday. You can order an enjoyable meal and a beer inside the hostel for less than 20 Yuan. If I ever come back to Guangzhou, I will be staying at the Riverside YHA .
All around a "good" hostel. Not great but certainly worth the money to stay at. The atmosphere is good and I have absolutely no complaints there. The front desk staff were as helpful as they could be and very friendly. My girlfriend and I stayed in 2 separate mixed rooms... mine was pretty clean; hers was not clean at all. I definitely would recommend this hostel but it won't be a life-changing experience or anything... very avg hostel; what you'd expect in China. Super cheap beer!
