Hofang Youth Hostel is located in Dajing Street, nestled between two of the most famous old pedestrian streets, and one restaurant-street, in Hangzhou. The area used to be the imperial center of the Latter Song (Nan Song) Dynasty, and the street where the hostel is (where much of the history and culture remain) is also the one that is full of restored old buildings, with lots of character, identifying it with the traditional Yangtze Delta.
The hostel is only a couple of hundred meters from any of these tourist attractions: the Historical Gate, the Traditional Chinese Medicine Museum, Hu Xueyans Residence, the Pedestrian Hefang & Imperial Streets. A short 5-minute walk will take you to either Wushan Square or Intime Shopping Mall from the hostel, and it takes 15 minutes by foot either to West Lake or Carrefour. The hostel is about 1.7 kilometers from the Main (central) Hangzhou Train Station - an 11 yuan taxi fare. There are lots of buses nearby to places of attraction, shops and etc., it is an extremely conveniently place to hang out!

The hostel has a courtyard in the central area, as well as a paved outdoor patio, with white walls, traditional roofs with Chinese tiles, and a pomelo tree. There are Chinese loft rooms, with exposed wooden beams, private and shared dorm rooms available to guests - who often keep returning from all over the world! We have a cozy cafe / bar inside and a lovely Chinese restaurant, offering both Chinese & Western food and drinks.

FREE WiFi is available in the cafe / bar and the communal area - where there is a mini pool table for relaxing and meeting fellow guests. Private rooms have both FREE internet access, either by WiFi or with a cable. Facilities of the hostel include security keycard, heater / Air Conditioner, complimentary use of a towel, slippers, and both shared & private hot showers accessible 24 hours per day. Free luggage storage is provided at the reception. Barbecue facilities and laundry service with extra charges are also available.
