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

Unless you have your own set of wheels or are willing to spend an inordinate amount of time traveling, avoid staying here. The hostel, which is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, is a good 15 minutes walk from the nearest subway stop, which is another 40 minutes away from the Zhujiang New Town area. Taxis are also hard to... More

This hostel is about 500 metres from Fancun Metro. Across the road from River and Ferry stop. Ferry to Electronics market area is RMB2 about USD 20cents. Riverside is 200 metres from a great BBQ street where you can eat for about RMB 20 USD3 including seafood. I stay here when in Guangzhou the friendly staff are always helpful. Beers... More

A basic hostel in a good location. For the price my single room had a hard bed - normal in China and one of the smallest bathrooms I've used. You could buy an adequate breakfast or wander around the corner and eat local. A five minute walk from the subway made it accessible to all of the city and across... More

Riverside hostel is a nice surprise - great rooms, nice bar, some good food, and a pool table, which is always nice, but it's in an odd location. You're across the river from the old part of town - it's not that big a deal (or that expensive, for that matter) to get back and forth, but it's important to... More
