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

I was in Jiangpan Riverside YHA last year, alone. This year I came back with a group of 11 people, in 6 rooms. We had a couple of twin rooms with a view on the river. The other rooms were at the back of the building. Everybody in my group was very satisfied with the accommodation. It still has the... More

I was in this hostel for 3 nights. The employees are pretty relaxed and speak English. Beside doing the administration work for checking in and out, there is no interaction between you and the staff. Also they do not provide any tours which you can take, but maybe this is because a lot you can just do by yourself. Foshan... More

I stayed here for 4 nights after arriving in China. I had a single ensuite room. It was compact, spotlessly clean and had a terrific, powerful shower. It was also cleaned every day and my towel was changed. Staff are friendly. Some speak English, some don't. I really don't have an issue with this as most of the guests are... More

This hostel is situated by the riverside of the Pearl River, on the opposite riverside of the Shamian island where were, before, the colonial foreign quarters : to reach there, there is a ferry which crosses the river in a few minutes and at a very low cost. But they are now building a road tunnel acrss the river. Anyway!... More
