Liked: Really friendly owners, the guy speaks good english and is interesting to talk to. Clean, decent place. Security guard always on duty at the reception. Close to the Metro on a main line.

Disliked: Hardest bed I've slept on in China, and that's saying something. Only seems to be the top bunks, the bottom ones had softer mattresses.

Liked: Jason (The owner) is very friendly,welcoming and helpful. It is pretty close to the subway and close to local restaurants. It feels like you are staying at a friend's house rather than a hostel with his cute dog running around and the general atmosphere.

Disliked: Andrew left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location was excellent. The staff and residents helped with transit info. Chinese youth from other cities live here to work or intern. The clothes dryer was different and superior. The height of the duplex protected from ground-based air pollution. Local stores were convenient. Two elevators ensure access. 24 - hour guards at first and building entries.The owners are in their 20's and ambitious, like all of China. Good luck to their future children!

Disliked: Cleanliness.

Liked: The staff was cool and friendly, helped in any way they could.

Disliked: Its basically an apartment turned into a hostel, therefore there is no backpacking atmoshphere... more like a guesthouse. The dorms are ok, hard bed but comfortable enough. My only complain would be the absolute filth of the bathrooms... surprisingly, the girls bathrooms was just apalling... at least the mixed dorm bathroom was better.

Liked: The staff is really friendly and they like to hang out with the guests. Our room was also nice. It's easy to find if you look at the pictures they provide here. The metro stop is fairly close.

Disliked: The bathrooms were pretty dirty when we stayed there. Reading all the reviews here I hope it was an exception and we were just unlucky.

Liked: OK place to stay, the staff are friendly and help with directions, it is close to a metro station. They also invite you to joing them for homecooked meals. The directions to find the building can be confusing. The hostel (in building 367) is located behind building 365 with the blue glass.

Disliked: Not many attractions in the area, a bit far to walk for supermarket or decent eateries, but the proximity to the metro station helps alleviate this discrepancy.

Liked: The staff was very helpfull and friendly. Very interested in their guests also. They make you any food (breakfast, lunch dinner) as long as you say it in time (of course for a small pay). They waited for us as we would arrive in the middle of the night, as our plain had a bad delay we arrived the next day and they didn't charge the first night! The (private) room was nice and the dorms looked nice too. Good communal space and wifi-access. Location is good enough (bit hard to find though) nice to look out of the bathroom from the 27th floor over the city.

Disliked: The bathroom could be a bit cleaner. Suggestion is providing citymaps to theur customers and having an infopormationboard.

Liked: We stayed here for three nights in this brand new hostel, and loved it. The english speaking staff were very friendly and helpful. The common areas were really nicely decorated. We would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to stay in Guangzhou.

Disliked: It is located between two metro stations, but not within walking distance of the centre. However, this could be a good thing as we found the centre noisy and chaotic.
