Good hostel with average facilities. Helpful staff and good location!
Cosy hostel and cheapest option in Tokyo.
A very good hostel with a cool bar attached. It had good showers and was bang in the middle of where you wanted to be in Shanghai. The staff were pretty stand-offish, but then we didn't really need them to be fair.
Great hostel with one of the best common areas in any hostel I have stayed. They shared bathroom double rooms were good, rooms are a bit old and could do with a spruce up including some better lighting, but bed and pillows were fine and towels included.
5mins walking to metro station. never suffer from facilities or cleaness. Kind staffs with good lingual ability.
I enjoyed my staying here! This place is so wonderful! Thank you for everything!
The hostel is in a great location, within easy walking distance of the Bund, East Nanjing Road, French Concession, People's Park etc. It has a nice atmosphere with a quiet courtyard and terrace, and a comfortable bar serving reasonably priced good food. The Wifi is good throughout the hostel and staff are welcoming and helpful. My only problems were that shared bathrooms and dorm rooms were not quite as clean as they could have been and no locks were provided for the lockers within the rooms.
Fun hostel. Nice cafe, and clean rooms. Literally right beside the People's square, so if you want to be near all the popular sights near the square, you can roll right out of bed to see the museum, the Bund, the People's park, etc.
There were only two lockers that worked in my 6 bed dorm. . The location is excellent 5 mins walk from people square. What spoiled my experience was the attitude of the staff, I found it to be poor and rude. One guy who works on reception in the mornings is very nice and helpful, one female receptionist was extremely rude to me, and completely unapproachable with an attitude problem.I couldn't believe it when they refused to boil an egg for me! I mean how difficult is it?
Bed wasn't the best. But I wasn't there too sleep. Great location. Right next to Peoples Square and if you like walking you can walk everywhere from there or take a short subway trip
everything great! ideal location, friendly staff,relaxing atmosphere, very clean, but it would be perfect if breakfast started before 8:30 thanks a lot

Showers could have been cleaner. Nice rooms and very nice common area.
Female dorm was good but had no where to put a lock on or even lock my locker. They came and turned on the heater every night which was fantastic and the bedding was so warm. The bar/restaurant area was cozy and the food was great! Just a short walk from the metro as well as city tour bus. Staff not exceptionally helpful but managed to get some information from them.
A gem of a hostel, situated perfectly in the heart of Shanghai, clean and tidy. And the staff was so helpful! The only thing I was missing, was toilet paper. But maybe this is just not common in China. One suggestion would be to update IExplorer or install a new version of Firefox, as I could not access my Emails on the hostel-PC. But these are luxury problems.. I enjoyed my stay very much!

Could definitely improve, This was my third stay at this hostel in the last few months and things seem to be moving in the wrong direction..
Location meant we could walk to most places we wanted to see. Difficult to talk to other guests as no one seemed to stay in the restaurant to chat. Quiet surroundings even though in the city. A lift to shift heavy suitcases would have helped. A staff member helped carry some up stairs for us.
A nice hostel. Would definitely stay there again :)
The bathroom seems not very clean and too small
