I enjoyed my stay but the room was a bit messy

The hostel's location is good, close to good and cheap bars and to metro. However, the hostel's bar was rather expensive. Unfortunately, the condition of the shared room was very bad. In the bathroom there was a mildew above the wash-hand basin, it was horrible. What's more, the mirror was broken and we didn't get any toilet paper. The matresses on beds were very poor, it wasn't much better than sleeping on the floor. And it was very humid in the room all the time.


The location is convenient (though the English address on HostelWorld website is not good, you need enter into #498 [not 490] of Dongchang Road). Nice small buildings arranged around a central terrace.


Staff were quite unhelpful. It's not mentioned anywhere about the 100RMB deposit for the key card. Onky one key card was provided for my group. Internet is only available in the lobby and common areas.


Rooms were awful, they had damp everywhere and paint was falling off the walls. the rooms also smelt very dodgey, but the WiFi and the shower were decent. Wouldn't stay here again. Very expensive for very little, and had no bar to chill in.

it's inside a kind of neighborhood and it seems dirty, but when you get inside the hostel its nice, the 3 bed room was a little bit humid. in general a nice place to stay near subway station.


Cheap and cheerful hostel great location in pudong. An old hostel in one of the only older areas in pudong left so probably won't be there for a long time. But a good hostel and at the price you can't go wrong


It is an average hoste. I stayed for 4 nightsin a private 2ble bedroom with private bathroom. It is hard to communicate as their english is not so good. They cleaned the room every day and there is a nice cafe downstairs. Our room icnluded AC and we never had any security issues. It is a bit tricky to find the location of the hotel cause it is a bit hidden and taxi drivers dont speak english at all so be sure you bring the address in Chines w you. It is very close to the financial centre!
