Nice staff and environment but long way to reach over 10-15 min


The hostel is easy to find and well located. Plenty of places to eat nearby.


Love the common area - lots of couches, pool table, and food and drink are not too expensive. Great place to spend some down time.


Great location, handy to both river ferries across to Shamian Island and night cruise (both must-dos in Guangzhou). The food shops in the area are good eating and friendly. This area of town has many "off the beaten trail" attractions such as the dried foods and tea markets. Definitely be again one day.

The hostel is good location. but i had to work more to go there than i expected. staff members are very kind and nice to me. The atmosphere of the hostel is full of energy and room was clear. One day was OK. but another day, i was bitten by a mosquito. Mosquitoes kept me up all night.


The hostel had clean rooms and a large lobby area with a bar and pool table. It was located next to the river and nearby was a subway station which meant you could get around Guangzhou easily. The staff were friendly and gave us alot of help and directions.


Helpful staff, good food, and an interesting location make the YHA at Fangcun a fine low-budget option in Guangzhou. Will stay again.


The room was spacious and clean with a well functioning tv and air conditioner. The cheap breakfast was also appreciated!


I thought there's a nice view when I viewed the hostel. But when I'm there, there isn't. Apparently the price I paid for wasn't what I could get. Hostelworld or the hostel should make a clearer note on that. There's also interesting water dripping from my room... which I have no idea why.


Need more on local attractions places to go


Terrible. .. There are too many ticks and fleas... I couldn't sleep a moment


IT would be helpful to have help with booking onward travel. We found ferry useful and not quite as busy as underground.


Location is good but I got mosquito bites all over me.


I loved this hostel. I thought the staff spoke very good English. They were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. A great place for an even better price.


A bit rundown, needs to upkeep the facilities.
