Welcome to our hostel

Guangzhou Riverside International Youth Hostel is by the riverside of Pearl River and is on the opposite side of the former foreign quarters which is well preserved as it was where you can find a strong colonial sentiment.

The Riverside Youth Hostel offers dormitories, twins, single, riverside en-suite, and family rooms. A Cafè, internet connection, conference rooms, a self-catering kitchen, a laundry area, and travel services are also available.

Along the riverside, there are pubs and bars, restaurants, cafè and cultural and art area transformed from old factories. Take the scenic Pearl River cruise of jade coloured what and city lights from White Goose Pool to Guangzhou Bridge. Or if you are interested in culture and history visit the Temple of six Banyan Trees, one of the four Buddhism temple complexes in Guangzhou. Dense foliage, antiques, and majestic towers adorn the heritage site.

the location is very interesting, the location is an older part of town, the local streets sell seafood at night and local renovations have brought new life to some rundown parts. My favorite part is the ability to ride the public boats at the wharf outside the front door of the hostel. So cool

Great Hostel, helpful staff, good signage, great facilities, nice to be able to make and buy a meal on premises. The doors to the rooms could use a slam arresters, but most hostlers were respectful due to signage.

I stayed in a single-person room. The Wifi inside the rooms was really really terrible. There was a wireless router outside my door, but inside the room there was absolutely no wifi reception. I wish they could fix that. Besides this, I like the hostel very much.
