  • I'm a university photography instructor and stayed here on semester break for 20 days, spent most of my time in the field taking photos but in all it was a good experience. This is in Old Town Shanghai, so don't expect modernity. Staff spoke some english, helped me purchase a train ticket & find some local Metro stops, Metro systems are reliable & close, Yu Garden a 5 minute walk, the bund about 25 minutes. beds are kind of hard though, no laundry, good water pressure so I say good for your $

  • Location ok but hostel staff not helpful or friendly. Hostel was very dirty, we got a private room that had stains all up the wall and the bathroom smelly bad and had mould. The whole place needs a good clean. I would not recommend staying here. Other hostels I stayed in in china were much much better.
