Plenty of handtowels in places like Wal-Mart and Carrefour. Or you can dare to try Taobao/T-Mall and get home delivery.

Buying from Amazon means longer -- probably much longer -- delivery times and then there's customs to worry about. Plus, the site is only partially in English when you select "English" as your language. Still a lot of Chinese to navigate. Not to mention that I highly suspect Taobao is a lot lot cheaper, not that I've compared handtowels.

 

I think the OP needs a good excuse to engage his developing Chinese friends and develop his engaging Chinese skills, and asking for help setting up and using Taobao is a worthwhile approach.

I love the OP's conciseness/laconism.

Surely these can be stolen from any good hotel (and several bad ones)? :twisted:

I was having more trouble with the fact OP 'found' them.  Although I now see that they probably meant found them in a shop, rather than found them on the floor, like I had imagined.

Or found them in her apartment after they'd been left there by the previous foreign teacher

For 100RMB/night you get towels.

I upgraded to a 65 yuan a night hostel. I was staying at a shady hotel and bought the gloves from a place across the street.  Anyway, the hostel I am in now does not provide towels.

65元!I don't dare ask how much you were paying for the shady hostel, in Guangzhou no less. Or just how shady it was.

What do these hostels look like? Can you post a picture of the interior? No need for the girls to be in the picture.
