Compared to other hostels I've visited in other cities in china not the best. Common living room is very nice and cosy, but rooms are very cold and hard. The toilets and bathroom are down the hall and the ventilation is not that great. When I came into shower room I couldn't see anything because of so much damp, which also means keeping stuff dry becomes very difficult.


there is no heat and the facility is essentially outdoors, so it was freezing & the showers had no hot water. I arrived late & hungry so I went upstairs to get some food at the cafe. The man working was watching t.v. on the couch and refused to serve me (even though they were still open for another 1.5 hrs) so he could watch his show about samurais. Finally, I left my shoes there, called back immediately in Chinese an hour later and was literally hung up on. Congratulations, 100% awfulness!

This hostel is okay but nothing more. Wouldn't kill the staff to smile every now and then - the lack of friendliness is striking. Will not come back here.


Loved it. Will be staying there again!

The staff here are cold, unhelpful. Atmosphere is poor. Good location.


My room was not ready on time, but past that, it was okay.


Big bed in a good room with TV. Only shower head could be replaced in the bath room, but towels, shampoo, etc. everything was included. Great common area. Would stay there again.


The address on Google is not the address of the place. Its actually a few street downs and on the other side of the road! Wasted over an hour trying to find it! Make sure you have the correct address. The location is great. Its of the alley on a street lined with trees. Its a few minutes walk from the subway station but its a good central location. Places in the area open up late like 10 or 11 so not an ideal location if you are a morning person!


With the reading room, the DVD room and the bar I felt spoilt for choice with spaces to study and relax- and the staff were very helpful with any questions I had.


Only stayed briefly, but its a pretty cool place :) The staff are great too, and speak great english! Only downpoint would be the alleyway to get to the hostel -- its a bit creepy at night ^^;;


Very unfriendly staff without idea about what is to work in as Hostel and receive people. The hostel was dirty and expensive. Not to come again.


Personal is veey unfriendly and seems to not have understand what customer service is.


I think this is an excellent hostel. They have lots to choose from and they have a lot of great amenities too, such as, laundry service, towel rentals, a cafe/bar with great food, an open rooftop area, nice rooms and beds, foosball and ping pong tables, private rooms for anyone who wants to read/work from the computer etc. In addition to the fantastic location and the previously mentioned positives, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful when it comes to getting around Shanghai. Great place


The hostel was very clean and the private room my friends and I had was a good size with good amenities. However the wifi was awful and would not work inside the room, the hostel was down a sketchy alley that was hard to find, and the staff was very cold, unwelcoming, and really unhelpful in regards to anything we asked. I would not stay here again just bc of that alone. The atmosphere was also really lacking but not sure if that was just bc it was offseason. Hostel is also an apartment complex?


While the hostel itself was in a good location, the staff were extremely unhelpful. My traveling companions and I asked various staff members numerous questions and never received a helpful response. Additionally, the atmosphere in the hostel was dull. This location should not advertise as a hostel, it is more like a hotel because it has strict quiet hours starting at 11pm. All in all, for the price you pay, not worth it.

Clean and does the job. Upstairs bar is nice area.


I have stayed here a few times, and it serves its purpose. It is a comfy place to stay and is relatively clean. That being said, it isn't necessarily the ideal place to meet a bunch of people. I do like its location though. It is not super touristy, and there are lots of shops and neat restaurants around.


Everything was great and smooth except when I went to shower (I am a male) the cleaning lady just continued cleaning rather than leave. Strange, but I would definitely stay here again.


The hostel is great for the price you pay and the location. Though the staff can do with a little more cheer. Bed was dirty but don't mind dusting off stray ants and random rubbish. The place was dead and lacked a community vibe or may be it was just off season.

A nice location with better locker security than most hostels, you don't need to worry about anything. The place is pretty clean and tidy with plenty of facilities like commons area and a restaurant. They also offer private apartments for long term stays.
