Located right by the center of old town, less than a minute walk from Hongqiao where the river is. Walk around here for sightseeing during the day and the wide variety of bars during nighttime. The staff, consisting mostly of young working travelers, were among the nicest I've met during my trips, they even taught me how to play Mahjong!
This hostel is just a short walk from the river - which we deliberately opted for because the river is quite loud and pumping until about midnight. You still get to enjoy everything that's there - the nightlife and the beautiful morning views, but you can also sleep when you want to. The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful. Only slight downside is just that as westerners we like western toilets! but everything here was clean and you get electric blankets so it was warm too.
pretty simple place, in a very good area, near the bridge but very quiet. the staff are friendly and cool people. the atmosphere was alright considering it's not tourist season but the "bar" offered no kind of service whether food or drinks. otherwise a worthwhile place to stay
The directions to the hostel were useless so I had to get a taxi driver to call the hostel. Once I got there though the staff met me at the door and were very nice and helpful. The location was perfect, right near the Hong bridge but a bit away from the bars so it wasn't loud at night. The 4 bed dorm was a bit small but it was very clean and the bed had a heating pad. The bad thing was that there were no lockers and the luggage storage was just in the common room.
The rooms smells very bad. The facilities very old. We needed to flush the water in the squat toilet with a shrink!!!!!!! it was a holiday, and every place to sleep was very expensive, so this was the cheapest option, but all the time we avoided spending time in the room, because of the horrible smell! So no, it doesnt worth the money saving. They charge extra 30 RMB per day for air condition. No address in Chinese shown in the web, so it was difficult to find, and no one answered the phone.

This hostel was extremely cheap and hence my rating is very harsh. However, the beds were literally dripping wet when we arrived in our 6 person dorm. Atmosphere wise, we saw two other people at the hostel, so there was no one to really be with. That said, the staff were really fun and took us out one night to see the river. There was nothing you could buy at reception, at all. But in the end we did understand why we were the only people staying there.
