Fantastic location, right by the river, opposite a ferry pier. Plenty of places to eat and drink, (although I'm not sure how easy it would be without any Cantonese or Mandarin - either one will get you by ok) and really close to the metro. Nice lobby and outside tables, on a quiet road so you can sit outside in... More

Good place. Good location. Good amenities. Good service but it can be better. This place is a gem that needs better management and better service. It's very convenient for transportation and near many ethnic restaurants. Excellent walk and super quiet at the river front location

This place grew on me the longer I stayed. At the front there's the wide expanse of the river, which you can pop across for only 1亓, getting you within reach of the heart of the city; to the rear there's a colourful old neighbourhood with shops, local eateries, markets, as well as access to buses and the metro.

We stayed here for one night after flying to Hong Kong and traveling on trough China. The beds are very hard, but this is common in China. The staff is friendly, speaks a little bit of English. Close to subway station and river with nice city views.

The Staff is helpful. With a quick access to the Water Bus, a kind of public transport, heading to a couple of tourist attractions. It is easy to get to Metro staion, with about 10 or 15-minute walk. Staff is arranging a small and pretty raised-bed garden.

This is a very nice hostel. I stayed one night in a 6 person dorm with ensuite. The bunks were sturdy wooden frames with comfortable mattresses making for a good nights sleep. The ensuite had separated shower and toilet and there was no humidity coming from the bathroom. The location is not far from the centre with a metro stop... More

I stayed here for 1 night in a private single room. It's a decent hostel in an interesting bar strip across the river from the city center. Nice because the river is right outside the front door. The rooms were nothing special. Bathrooms were small and super basic. There are definitely better hostels in the city.

Just a short walk from Fancun Metro station, and right by the river - this is exactly why we chose this hostel. After staying in Bejing and Xi'an for 10 nights, we were looking for a peaceful place to stay. This ticked the box. 5 stops on the metro, easy to find, very close to two streets with wonderful restaurants,... More
