  • Decent hostel. Quite small rooms and there are a lot of people staying there that appear to actually live and work in Shanghai which does hurt the hostel atmosphere experience. Really great price and location to the subway and bund though!

  • Truly one of the best Hostels I've visited in China. Very clean, facilities are above average - 24-hour hot water, A/C and heat in each room, and fantastic location near the Bund center of the city, close to the subway. The staff service is mixed. There are a couple of people who don't like to be bothered by you and a couple who are helpful. The food and bar is okay. Not very noisy, and good place to rest when jet-lagged. I liked it so much I stayed twice while traveling in Eastern China.

  • Exellent location, extra value for money. Would stay here again. Only thing: because its Shanghai downtown, it can get a bit noisy, but thats not the hostels fault.

  • Great place! Clean, safe, convenient to places (like the Bund). I definitely would stay here again if I'm back in Shanghai. The rooms were pretty cramped, but it was doable. Hostels are meant for only sleeping anyways. Close to subway station and downtown.

  • The location is really good. We can go anywhere in shanghai very easiliy beacause subway station is very near from this hostel. Room condition is good. The bedclothes are pretty clean and there are no dirty in the room and hall. Most of all, A female staff who is fluent in english helped me with calling a taxi in chinese. At that time, I need to call for a taxi before i leave the hostel around AM5:30 because my flight dep time is AM8:00. I really apreciate your help and kindness.
