While the location is perfect and the rooftop bar really amazing, the rude staff is definitely a down point and something to be improved. We arrived on a group of 6 people and the receptionist who later refused to give me his name, started to be rude out of nowhere. The next day the lady responsible for the café place expelled us from the seats very rudely when we said we didn't want anything for now. The bed is comfortable though and the bathrooms are kind of old with no toilet paper (?)

This is such an amazing location, just off the Bund! The view from the rooftop bar Terrace is stunning. I can't imagine a better location for exploring Shanghai.

The front desk girl was terribly rude and unhelpful. she actually made snide and underhand derogatory comments in front of my face while another customer was nearby (i dont recall her name but the larger one with black contacts). the bathroom tiles in the mens shower are subpar...they are damaged and dilapidated. maybe not such a big deal, but you need to supply your own toilet paper as well in the bathroom. and lastly, even though they redid the rooftop bar, it seems like the prices have risen.

Seems like a dorm more than hostel because you have to stay with mainland chinese who stays there in long term.

This hostel is not for solo backpackers. Most people who stay there are in shanghai for work so you definitely will not socialize with anyone. There was one dude smoking a cigarette in the room which was very unpleasant and the bathrooms were disgusting. Worst hostel I have been in china

I liked the place and the location. I suggest they can improve the services in details such as lending cups for drinking hot water, a stronger wireless connection in the rooms, etc
