Really enjoyed my stay! I was fortunate to make some great friends while I was here, and its easily done because the Blue Mountain has such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Pros: friendly, helpful staff, yummy breakfasts (3 yuan), good lockers, nice communal area, western toilets and facilities kept clean, plus I felt safe. Cons: a bit difficult to find, WiFi only available in the communal area, my dorm (4 beds) was a little small. Overall, I would absolutely reccommend! thanks!

Best shower I've possibly ever had in a hostel! The far one on the left hand side :) Stayed several times before and keep coming back. Lovely staff and very organised.

Very close to metro and the bund. Excellent and helpful staff. Worth the money and will choose to stay at this hostel again in the future. Only thing is both males and females are using the same showering rooms... So it is a little awkward sometimes.

The experience was great! If ever I would go to Shanghai in the future, I would definitely check this hostel.

Brilliant hostel. Our twin private room was like an apartment. Staff were really helpful and we made some good friends in the hostel. they could do with a few fans outside near the pool table for enjoying outside in the summer heat. brilliant location very close to the bund and Nanjing Dong Lu. Would definitely reccomend the hostel.

Well, it's probably not like you can change that, but a double room is tiny! It's hard for two peapole to stay in the same apartment at the same time.

A good hostel overall, but perhaps a little disorganized. When the three of us went to check-in, the hostel gave us locks, but only two of them - thankfully I brought my own. Rather than assigning beds and lockers, we were told to just pick ones that currently weren't being used. This didn't cause any problems for us, but if there had been any damages to the room, finding the person responsible would have been more difficult.

Even though they gave me the room in their branch fish inn, thanks for all. The staff Chang'an was really helpful, regards

It is located near Nanjingdong Rd, so it is easy to take subway. However, it will be noisy when you sleep near door. Other facilities are good.

I stayed at the Blue Mountain Bund Youth Hostel and it has quickly become my favorite hostel in Shanghai. I love the atmosphere. It is a difficult place to find at first if you aren't looking for the hostel being inside another hotel building. My flight was delayed from Wuhan and I got in three hours late but they kept my booking for me and checked me in quickly. The only thing that wasn't as appealing as the couple in one of the common showers and being quite loud about it...

My bed was super comfortable:-D it was a good place to stay. I stayed only for one night so I was just very happy with my comfortable bed. Two things which could improve: breakfast starts late, 8:30, not convenient if you need an early train or plane. And the wifi only works in the common room...so people don't talk in the common room but they stare at their phones

This is a hidden treasure. Great place, excellent value for money. The staff is super friendly and always willing to help. The private room, is small but very good, with air con, TV, phone and very clean toilet facilities. The atmosphere is also great and you can hang out at the lounge while listening to some food and browsing the internet.

A great hostel. I arrived very late at night and the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Great location and a very cosy place. I left some stuff there and the lovely staff not only located it (I had left it in the common area in my frantic rush to pack), but are currently figuring out how to mail it to me. I'm very glad I chose to stay here!
