The hostel is open 24 hours and no curfew.

Coming From Ximenkou Metro Station (西门口, Xīménkǒu):

Metro is the easiest to explore the city. We're only a 4-minute walk (300 meters) from the Exit B of Ximenkou Station (西门口,Xīménkǒu) on Line 1 (Yellow Line).

Once you leave Exit B, you will see the China Post office (中国邮政, Zhōngguó Yóuzhèng) on your right hand side. Keep going down and turn right on Haizhu Middle Road (海珠中路, Hǎizhū Zhòng Lù). Keep walking down and you'll cross Guangta Road (光塔路, Guāngtă Lù). You'll see us on your right hand side.

More details below.

=========================================================

Coming From the Airport:

- Metro:
The most popular way to come to the hostel from the Airport and costs Y7 only. Take Line 3 to Tiyi Xilu Station (体育西路, Tǐyù Xīlù). Change to Line 1 and get off at Ximenkou Station (西门口, Xīménkǒu). Leave at Exit B, go straight down until you see Haizhu Middle Road(海珠中路, Hǎizhū Zhòng Lù), turn right. The last Airport metro departs at 23:00 and it takes around 50 minutes to come.

- Taxi:
It costs around Y120~Y130 (all toll fee included) from the airport to the hostel. When you leave a taxi, always remember to ask for a tax invoice(发票, Fā-piào) which is very important if you lose any lugguage on the cab or need to complain about overcharging. It takes around 40 minutes to come to the hostel. You can always ask a taxi driver to call our hostel for detailed directions.

- After Midnight: Bus + Taxi
The Airport Bus Number 1 operates until the last flight. For Y18 only, the bus will take you to the Flight Ticket Office of Guangzhou Railway Station (火车站民航售票处, Huǒchēzhàn Mínháng Shòupiàochù). From there, you can take a taxi (Y14) to come. Total fare for both bus and taxi is around Y32 (Y18+Y14). When you leave a taxi, always remember to ask for a tax invoice(发票, Fā-piào) is very important if you lose any lugguage on the cab or need to complain about overcharging.

- Airport Pick-Up:
Due to the prohibitive parking fee and tough traffic control in the Airport, pick-up service will cost grossly more expensive than taxi. If you have to order a private pick-up, please do this at the Airport Help Desk which will be a lot cheaper than asking a car to go to the Airport to pick you up because the latter one will include the charge on potential hefty penalty, extra parking fee and potential loss incurred by no-show.
