Great place, staff are friendly, guests are cool and the location and facilities are above par. It's a great place to get into the party scene in Shanghai (which can be crazy if you tap into the right stream). I love it here.

Great location, good hostel vibe. Overpriced breakfast, so skip it.

In Shanghai Blue Mountain Bund Youth Hostel, we booked a double-bed room, which was extremely small for two people. The room had no window. The toilet was clogged during most of the time and the staff did not empty the dustbins one single time during our stay nor did they clean the very small bathroom. Staff, however, was friendly. I wanted to rent a bike for one afternoon but staff did not know where there could be an opportunity to do so. Atmosphere was good. I would not stay there anymore.

The customer service at this hostel was outstanding. I was called by the reception to confirm my booking on the day and was asked if I still wanted the room. Check-in was efficient and friendly and the staff were able to offer me useful advice in English for travelling in Shanghai.

The hostel is in a great location, only a few minutes walk to east nanjing subway. Stayed in a twin with shared bathroom, the room was tiny and right by the washrooms which was always noisy. The hostel was loud at night but the staff weren't concerned about it. Overall, was a little disappointed with the hostel.

Staff do not speak much English so expect too much advice on where to visit in the city and the lockers were a bit flimsy but the hostel is in a handy location though near to East Nanjing metro. The common area was a good place for meeting other travellers and there was also a promoter about somehow getting us all free entry and drinks at some nice clubs in the evenings!

Good points:well located, if you like to be near the biggest avenue in Shanghai. Terrace and beautiful hostel. Bad points: staff is friendly, but not helpful at all. They indicated wrong informations about train schedules etc, and when I asked for a Shanghai restaurant, they told me to go on the most touristic place I've ever seen. People were REALLY drunk and unrespectful. Staff didn't know what to do with them . They allow alcohol and also sell some... bad idea.

Gave facilities an "average" because they were repairing three showers and another had no door, which left two for the entire hostel to use.

This hostel is in a great location not far from the Bund and the main shopping area, however I definitely won't stay here again. I booked a twin room, hoping I could get some sleep but it was right next to the toilets and showers and people were slamming doors and shouting throughout the night. If you really want to stay here, make sure you don't get rooms 613 or 614.

Great people inside the hostel! :) It was a really nice surprise to see guests from all around the world. Not very common in another Asian hostels. The stuff is friendly, English-speaking, and nice. Perfect place for backpackers! If you are lucky you could have a chance to be taken from this hostel for an amazing party in Shanghai!

Very helpful staff, good location, at first I stayed in a 8 bed dorm but it was too crowded so I moved to 2 bed room and it was great except the noise from the terrace after 11pm. But nevermind. Bar was great, everything was clean so I was really satisfied with that hostel.

The staff were very accommodating and really helpful. The price was affordable. For the private room, there's an electric kettle, a tv, towels, free tea bags and cups, and basic toiletries. Wasn't really expecting all of these from a hostel. Kudos.

Great hostel. Good facilities (pool table, outdoor patio, lots of sofas, and wifi in both the lounges and bedrooms). Staff is very nice and helpful. And there is a large lounge/bar area where you can meet lots of people. And the location in Shanghai is as good as it gets -- a few minutes from a bustling subway stop, and less than 10 mins walk to the Bund.
