It's a nice place in a tall building. So you have a view of the city. There's a pool, but it was closed. However, there's a really nice public pool 2 mins walk away. The landlady is friendly and speaks good English. Only downside really, is that it's not located in the centre of GZ, but a ways out to the west. The wifi is fairly stable too.


so close to metro and food cort? but dont expect cleaniness here/theres no place to seat and talk with your neigbour, you can use only your bed for seating. also there is a problem with bath, cause you must to wait before you clean yourself...but anyway its nice to stay here, cause in singapore better to spend the day somewhere in center than in hostel)


Hello everybody, I stayed in a 4bed dorm in this hostel for a couple of nights and it was good. Leanne is a very friendly Person and she will tell you how to get around, if you can't speak Mandarin or Cantonese. Around the hostel are a couple of places to have breakfast, lunch or dinner (not just KFC). Convenience store is just downstairs. Bus to the bars and clubs at the river runs downstairs too. Underground is a 5 minute walk away.


Enthusiastic hospitality from owner.


The hostel was fine and Leann was very helpful,she gave me a different room than I had reserved,a bigger room. there was a nice view of the Pearl river from the balcony.


If you are looking for a place where you can feel at home,this is the place for you!!!!very close to the metro station and to a park.good atmosphere and Leanne is great!!!the hostel is very clean and the common area is spacious.we were able to use the building's swimming pool and Leanne recommended some amazing restaurants very close to the hostel.definetely recommend it!!!!!


Lovely place close to the slow-train station. Leanne is wonderful. Good if you want a quieter spot with a great view


Very welcoming staff, facilities are good and clean. Note that the hostel is situated in a private apartment on the 23rd floor of a building. People in the hostel are chilled, we had some conversations and played cards but don't expect a party atmosphere. The area where it is situated is ok but a bit far from the main things to see in Guangzhou.

Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. An ensuite bathroom would have been more acceptable for couples.


Nice enough hostel on the 15th or 23th floor (depending on where youre bed is located). This makes the view from the hostel amazing! Staff are helpfull and the indonesian lady speaks english. Facilities include wifi, a kitchen (with not much cutlery or cups) and a laptop. the location is good when using the subway.


Not a backpacker place, you will not find the ambiance, confort and facilities usual in many other places. No restaurant, bar, no places near to eat... and no swimingpool! The woman that runs it is friendly enough the first day, the husband just lays in the couch watching tv all day and doesn´t look friendly at all. A friend who stayed over one month and had to leave unexpectedly didn't get his deposit for not saying the day before.

Thank you for taking time to do the review. On the contrary there are plenty of restaurants and eateries close by. Clubs and bars easily reached by metro or bus. Beach swimming pool only 2~minutes walk. And we DID return your friend's deposit money. Unfortunately we need to charge him for the day's bed as it was not an emergency case for him to check out for the day. If it had been an emergency case, we would be happy to do otherwise.
