  • This hostel is very well positioned in Shanghai to give easy and convenient access to the Bund and its beautiful river views. There is a lift to make moving your luggage no problem. The staff were helpful with directions to all the tourist places I had marked to visit. The private room was spotlessly clean and simply, but tastefully furnished. There were renovations happening outside my room, but it was not a bother. I would recommend this hostel for a quick visit to the city or a longer stay.

  • Location was really great. Steps were not quite friendly but they did nice. The problem was noise, but it depends on next room. I enjoyed staying in Mingtown.(南京東路)

  • 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!
