  • Brilliant location, walking distance to the Bund/main museum/People's Park, almost next to a subway station and famed shopping/eating place Nanjing Road. Hostel itself, hmm - everything felt a bit half hearted - breakfast was nice but chef kinda sleepy, everything was superficially clean but bad if you looked closer, internet good in the bar but nowhere else, staff great when you ask for something but clueless to 'where should I go?' I'd stay again just for location!

  • This hostel has one of the best locations in Shanghai! Great access to public transportation. And its cleanliness, helpful multi-lingual staff are attractions for a wide-ranging group of people of all ages and regions. Plenty of hot water, washing machines and an elevator.... Wi-fi and good coffee in a pleasant public area make this the best hostel in Shanghai!

  • f you wanna pay for location this is your hostel. It's two minutes away from Nanjing road and the two subway lines you're gonna use the most. Staff is really friendly and there's always someone to help you out - even at 4am in the morning when you realize that your keycard isn't working. It's not the cleanest hostel I've been to and if you're looking for western company it might not be the best place but I had really good time in here.

  • Hostel with perfect location and delicious street food around. It was clean and warm (after few days in places where was freezing we really appreciated this). There is sth weird about this hostel... like there was no atmosphere at all. Happy hours 'buy 2 get 1 free' shuold be called 'buy 1 drink in 2 glasses'. I would recommend it to people who're looking for nice place to sleep with good location but if you expect more, you simpy won't get it.

  • Very nice hostel, slight damp issue on the wall by the window in room 211 but otherwise everything was perfect.
