I stayed in the hostel four days first, at the end of January this year and then at the end of February. I stayed there eith my parents in the family room which was pretty good. Even though the room didn't have window, it was comfortable, clean. The location is very good and the staff were very nice and helpful. Next time I will definitely stay there again.
No heating in the room... You won't die don't worry, but it is cold in the rooms during winter... But there is AC and a nice terrace for summer !
We were impressed with this hostel because of it's price in such an awesome location! But we never expected the facilities to be this good. Everything was well maintained, clear renovations have been made to upgrade the bathrooms and bedrooms and very clean We had one shock/disappointment... this came as a shock on our last day- we peeked under the beds to make sure nothing had been lost there. The amount of dust there mus have been months worth of. :/ Definitively worth looking into.
The hostel is a 5 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of East Nanjing Road (and the station) and a short walk from the iconic Bund. Lots of delicious street food nearby. Plenty of showers and toilets, hardly any queues. And what a great price. Recommended!
be warned that the bathrooms are co-ed, and not cleaned as well as they could be. our room had a horrific amount of dust on the ceiling and under the bed (looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years). the staff are lovely though, and the location is decent.
My girlfriend and I stayed in a private room, and it felt more like a quaint hotel than a hostel—amazing value. The staff lacked city knowledge and couldn't provide us with a map of the area but otherwise responded kindly to our requests and spoke great English. The food was not that great, but we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone looking to be near the Bund!
This was my second stay at this hostel and it was just as good as the first time. We had a twin room with a huge window which was just great. It was quiet and clean. The room had towels, a hairdryer and toothbrush kits. Plenty of room and helpful staff. The location is just so convenient for getting around Shanghai. The metro station is on Lines 2 and 10 so you can go straight to HongQiao airport. Recommended.
Good hostel, very affordable. The location was great, walking distance to a lot. Good bathrooms and rooms and common rooms.
I had a great time at the Blue Mountain hostel. It is centrally located to many attractions and handy connection to the metro, the staff are all friendly and welcoming be sure to bring cash with you as the card machine was broken when I arrived.The on site bar is a great place to meet other travellers and the staff have regular movie nights and dumpling making making classes in the evenings which is fun. The room I stayed in (standard private) was ok but showing signs of age, comfy bed though.
A really good place to stay, close to East Nanjing Rd, and plenty of restaurants along the way. The lounge area is fantastic, the bathroom area big and quite clean. And the rooms were really nice.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Good location. Nice common area to mingle if you want to. I didn't enjoy the communal bathrooms. One person clogged up one of the toilets and left it to leak all over the floor.
Bad directions to the hostel. Storage was way too small. No kitchen utensils. There were no paper towels to dry your hands. The internet was only available in the lounge area. Overall a very average experience.
Location of the hostel is amazing! Internet was hard to use.
Great hostel. I really liked it. Central and good value for money.
Great location, hot showers, nice staff! Only thing I would change is an easier wifi login system. The current one is quite frustrating
위치도 정말 찾기 쉬웠고, 근처에 지하철역, 편의점, 식당 등이 많아 정말 좋았습니다. 모든 직원들도 정말 친절했고 영어로 의사소통이 가능해서 정말 편리했어요. 상해 여행을 가기 전, 궁금한 것들 때문에 메일을 몇 차례 보냈었는데 답변도 매우 빠르고, 친절했습니다. 다시 상해를 간다면 또 이 호스텔에서 머무르고 싶습니다. 하지만 예약은 다른 사이트에서 할래요 호스텔월드 고객서비스 정말 구림.부킹닷컴 가야겠어요^^ Your customer service was really good. and hostel's location was perfect. And all staffs could speak English and really kind. I want to stay this hostel later again. I contacted several times through e-mail before i went shanghai. and answer was really fast

The rooms were a little dirty, and you couldn't hang out on the patio after a certain time. The washing machines were really finicky, but the fact that they even had them available was amazing and the staff was very helpful and gave us tons of free tokens after we messed up washing our clothes a few times. I would recommend against using the washers though because my clothes definitely did not get cleaned and we stayed up until 4 in the morning waiting for the dryers to fully dry our stuff.
My intention when I went to Shanghai was to just chill out and relax for a few days, but I met some awesome people at BMB and ended up adding two days to my trip so we could hang out more. It seemed like every day we had a list of questions the staff was more than willing to help us answer (one staff member called me "My Friend!" and the other "Paper Lady" since I borrowed a pen and paper all the time). The rooms were the nicest I've seen in China and, again, the staff were A+. Love this hostel!
In short, blue mountain was amazing! It's conveniently located, has all the facilities you'll ever need and the staff were superb! During my stay I was being a super mafan (annoying) by asking many questions and changing rooms etc but they were all very accommodating and helpful! I definitely recommend BM and will rebook myself in he future!
The location is great and the hostel is really nice. Would definitely come back and stay again.
