Liked: What I liked is since the beginning no matter your check in time, the owner will always be there to welcome you, the map they give is perfect, from the subway station just need to walk 5 minutes to get to the building. The room was clean, has wifii, a shared fridge and the bathroom always had toilet paper and soap and of course hot water, and this on winter season is great. The living room is nice, and the view from the balcony is awesome, the owner can speak english, chinese, and even surprised me talking spanish, I recommend this place, and I will return if I have to go to Guangzhou in the future. And the communication was perfect, the owner answers phone calls or e-mails immediately,

Liked: The main plus has to be the owner- she is so nice and friendly. She explains everything about the hostel and anything you need, she can tell you how to get it. The view is awesome too. Having your morning coffee and late night beer and chats on the balcony is splendid. It's in a safe and secure building too, with a couple of grocery stores right outside. Would definitely come back.

Disliked: Nowt.

Liked: The view is amazing from the 23rd floor. Looks right across the city. The hostel is basically two apartments, one on the 15th floor and one on the 23rd. The proprietors are quite nice, the wife appears to speak quite good English though I mostly communicated with the husband in mandarin.

Disliked: Could've been a bit cleaner (vacuum under the beds)

Liked: lianne was a really nice host, helping us to organize our trip and find everything. even though the place is potentially hard to find she gave enough instructions that even my mum would have bumped into it.

Disliked: no kitchen facilities, some strange guests (but who'd blame the hostel for it..)

Liked: We enjoyed staying in this place. Our room was in an apartment at the 23rd floor. It was really nice to have access to a living room, a balcony with a view over Guangzhou and a real bathroom and kitchen. The couple owning the place is really friendly and gave us good advice (like how to get train tickets or where to eat close by).

Liked: I was very happy to stay at the "Sunshine Home". It's essentially someone's flat which has been redesigned to become a small hostel. The view from the fifteenth floor is marvelous: looking out over Guangzhou is quite fascinating. Other pro's: cosy, travellers not only fixated on their notebooks or ipads, safe, affordable, friendly, loads of facilities, including cooking and washing

Disliked: there is quite some noise from the traffic down, but it's flowing traffic, not honking traffic so that's easier to deal with; also, the beds are a bit rickety so if you're staying in the top bunk you're swaying around a bit

Liked: genuinely welcoming friendly hosts, the feeling of staying at a friend's house, free internet, convenient one-person bathrooms with plenty of hot water and even a bathtub, comfy beds and linens, kitchen, laundry service available, beautiful views out the windows, clean, free secure locker... My overall impression was that they're not charging me enough money for all the comforts and services on offer.

Disliked: This place has nothing to dislike for me. Some people might prefer a softer bed or a more central location, but personally, I'm very happy with a thin mattress on a solid wood bed and a short walk away from one end of a subway line.

Liked: The property was extremely clean for China standards. It was the same standard as my house in Australia. It has all the facilities you need, you can cook there, wash/dry clothes etc. The view is also very nice from the apartment. Staying here, you get a very homely feel, so it's very comfortable to live here. It is also close to the subway/bus terminal, near a big public park, and near a street full of restaurants. Also, many attractions are very close via public transport or walking. e.g. Chen Clan academy, Shamian Island, Beijing Road, etc The hosts are very friendly and will help you with anything you ask, and there is a nice lounge area at Sunshine Home where you will meet the other people staying there. Definitely recommend this property to other people (a lot better than another hostel i've stayed at in GZ) and will definitely stay here again.
