Great staff and location, and easy enough to find. Minor detail but it would be nice to have a few more comfy chairs to sit on in the common room. BTW, the metered taxi from PVG airport at 2230h cost $Y175 and the driver had no problem finding the place using the map provided by the hostel.

Great communal areas with good facilities. Slow wi-fi, and a strange breakfast deal with nowhere to heat your own food. Small windowless private room but nice clean sheets. Paid way less through hostelworld than is advertised behind the front desk. Staff the usual hit and miss mix.

Great price for this amazing location just a few blocks off the Bund. The crowd skewed young- seemed like many early 20's people here, and there were many travelers. The comm

I had a really good four night stay at Blue Mountain. The location was easily accessible via subway and very close to the main tourist locations in Shanghai. The bar/social area is chilled and the staff were friendly and accommodating. One of the best features of this place was a promo girl called Georgie (who is a little crazy but fun). She would turn up and take groups of Western guests to local upmarket clubs. Entry to the bars and all the drinks were free! It makes no sense but lots of fun

This place is cool, Great atmosphere and awesome location. The staff were as helpful as they could be but the wireless left a lot to be desired. I could nearly connect and when I could I could get maybe 10-25kps. I stayed during the world cup and games were broadcast very early/late. I was not watching but the noise was quite loud. It seemed like the others were having a lot of fun. Overall decent place.

This is our 3rd stay here, all with different accommodations, and all were economical and pleasant. Good base of exploration for Shanghai.

It's a bit hard to find in the beginning, but then the location is great, close to a subway stop with lots of restaurants and shops around. The rooms are small but decent with everything you need. Large common areas with rooftop terrace, laundry facilities. Only downside is that there is only one shared mixed bathroom with only 8 showers and toilets for the whole hostel. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Nice lounge area and bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Many spoke good English. Double private rooms are very small and difficult to fit suitcases into but the beds are very comfortable. Overall very happy with our stay.

I had a great time at this hostel, twins room is very comfortable, clean private bathroom, closed to subway line 2 Nanjing east station, closed to the bund and Nanjing pedestrian road. Nice facilities, specially the roof in the back, cheap drinks, my parents who are over 60 stayed on a double room and they loved the hostel, no complains about noise or cleanliness, good help at hostel lobby about things to do in shanghai.

This place was pretty solid. The hostel was very well organized and set up. Huge common area with great facilities. Plenty of showers and toilets. Only complaint would be room cleanliness. I was there 4 nights and they never swept the floor in the dorms

Enjoyed our stay. Easy walk to the Bund, Good showers, hot water was always available. Staff were helpful even if they didn't have great English. The street is lively at night with plenty of restaurants and street vendors.

Good location, close to the subway and the main places. Reception was moving when I arrived, so the visit was a bit quick. Helpful staff anyway. Confortable double ensuite room, with TV set, AC, and WIFI. Food and drinks are convenient, but a bit overprice. The place was quite during the week, but try not stay in the room 670 (next to the common room) during the WE.

Really good value for money and only a five minute walk to the subway which you can catch all the way to both international airports. The four bed dorm was spacious and had good sized lockers for storing your bag in.

Pretty average hostel. The bar area is pretty cool, but for whatever reason it was harder to meet other travelers at this hostel compared to other hostels I've stayed at. Most people in the bar area just seemed to do their own thing on the computers, phones, etc. The few people I did meet said the same thing as well, figured it was because there isn't as much activities organized by the hostel. Great location though.

The bathrooms were dreadful. No where to hang clothes to stay dry while you shower. Hand basins constantly leaked all over benches. Toilets good, just dreadful showers. Also bathrooms off pool table room so not good for taking as little as possible to get all wet while showering.
