Hangzhou Hofang International Youth Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

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, the shared dorms, and also in 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.

[Notice]Hot water supplied between 7am - 1pm and 6:30pm - 1am(+24h) on cold days in winter. We will delete this message right after hot water supply goes back to 24h-supply.

Leave a review about your stay, help us improve our service and accommodate more guests better, that will be highly appreciated!

We look forward to welcoming you here - your Hangzhou Holiday Home, Hofang Hostel!

Hope you have a good time here.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This hostel was a bit hard to find but the location near West Lake is great, walking distance. The room was very spacious and amazing though in the middle of the night, between the roof and the ceiling I could hear what I think was a little rat chewing away at the wood. The bigger rooms are around a little courtyard space so there is a lot of outdoor space for critters to get around I guess but overall, the help from the staff was great, the rooms were very clean and you cant beat the value.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We had to ask for towels because they were first not available in the room.
And in our 5 days stay not once they changed bedsheets (even if there was mentionned in their "policy" that they change sheets every 3 days), no cleaning of the room not even emptying the trashbin of the room.
Ok, this is a youth hostel, but before we stayed in hotels in other cities, with rooms of the same price level, where they cleaned the room every day and changed towels every 2 days.
So let me say that we are a disapointed on this point. Otherwise a nice and clean hostel, nice rooms, very friendly hosts, very nice neighbourhood and Hangzhou is an incredible city.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was my first time staying in this hostel and I plan to use it again when i return to the area. While it was a little difficult to find, only because we didn't understand the numbering system of the area, everything else made up for it. The location itself is nice, right in the heart of old street but a little to the side so you don immediately run into the crowds, walking distance to west lake and anything else you want to do. We stayed in a three person room and it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was gorgeouuus. The breakfast the next morning was basic, but delicious. Overall, the best thing about it was the service. The receptionists were amazing! we arrived about 3 hours late and they just smiled and handed us our room key. they helped us book tickets for the next leg of our travels, recommended good places to see and eat and were overall very happy and good spirited. In the end I wished that I had spent more time hanging with them. Great place!

Newly opened - thus very fresh & clean. Very friendly & helpful staff. Free Internet access, laundry service. Rooms are nice but the one we were in (double bed room) was very small (around 4 square meters). No wardrobe. Twin rooms seem to be bigger. But overall it's ok.
