No, I am not a fan of this hotel. The staff can hardly speak english and that made them less friendly. My room was not clean at all, the walls looked like someone throw his coffee and food against it. Location was not super great, but I knew that in advance . It's close by the subway say city centre was easy to reach. The wifi was okay and there were some nice restaurants in the neighborhood.


Nice, clean, affordable place, helpful staff, no problems. Thanks!


Overall, the booking experience of this place was horrible: I booked the room for 4 people, as the check-in time approached, I noticed that we will be 30 mins late and called the hostel. After I did, I was adiviced that my room was already cancelled, without any notification whatsoever. The receptionist was just rude and annoying: she was saying that she doesn't have anything to do with Hostel World, and that it is not her responsibility to inform me about cancellations. Don't book.

Very disappointed with this place. I booked it and when I arrived very late at night they informed me there were no rooms available, Was forced to walk around Shanghai at night looking for another hotel.


The best hostel for its price. It's quite hard to find. if you plan to enjoy night views of Bund and Pudong, choose other hostel near peoples' square because it is quite far from those areas and the last metro is around 2300. Good price, ordinary room, kinda noisy (pretty much no soundproof).
