It's located right next to a subway station so it's convenient, but it's also quite far from anywhere where you actually want to go (you get to change subways twice in order to get to French concession, and once or twice to get to Nanjing Road/Bund). The room was clean and bed quite hard, which might just explain why so many Chinese people stay here. Atmosphere beats Mingtowns, but it's still a bit too quiet in the common room with everyone just surfing the internet.

Hostel is next to the metro. Staff is not really helpful. They do not even show you the room, washing maschine or the common room. Maybe they just dont want or it is because of their average english. However the place is clean enough to sleep and walk around but I hope they will work harder to clean the toilettes. Really good atmosphere because you woll find every guest in the common room since there is no wifi signal on the rooms.

Great room with private shower etc. Hostel was clean and had a good layout. The only thing we encountered where the people who stayed there were anti social. All Asians who were too busy with their mobile phones and laptops. Location is a bit far from the bund but the subway is around the corner. The neighbourhood was good and staff was helpful.

The hostel was very nice and easy enough to get around. The showers and beds were a little dirty, but the building was nice enough, easy to find, and a good place to relax.

This hostel was really conveniently located, right next to the subway station. However, the duration of my stay was less than impressive. I waited 40 minutes to check in, as nobody was on reception. I asked for the 8 bed dorm, as it was the cheapest. It was filthy, with several of my roommates living there permanently, it was like a teenagers bedroom. The staff were also very unhelpful, and seemed to think that they were too important or busy to help. The worst hostel I've stayed in, in China.

This place was a little bit out from the city centre, but not too far on the metro. During my time here it was used a lot by long term chinese students and travelling couples. I found it hard to find other single travelers to stuff with.

Average place to stay. Internet only worked in communal area. Washing facilities clean and easy to use.

Pretty average time there. Served its purpose, and was right across the street from the subway stop (Luban Road, Exit 3). French guests got pretty rowdy at 1am on my first night there, and it didn't seem like the management cared to try and quiet them down (the common area is pretty close to a lot of the rooms, including mine).

I stayed only one night but if my schedule allowed, would have stayed longer. A nice hostel in a great location. Had a great atmosphere and helpful staff. The only issue was the 100rmb deposit. I could have used this cash before leaving the country but only could access upon checking-out and heading to airport. If the hostel could allow a credit card deposit, that would free up the few rmb i had on my person. Otherwise everything was great and definitely worth the value.

Smoking...it is China yes but, common sense even in mandarin should be common sense... the matresses are just virtual if you are skinny you may not have a relaxed sleep, if at all... location is very good and staff trying to be helpful but under the line not a place to meet fellow travelers

I like there very much. People are friendly there. It was clean in my bedroom but the shower room wasn't . There was some hair and trash inside. Hope they can check out it more than once everyday. TKS!!
