  • 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!

  • 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.
