Lovely place with one of the nicest social areas I've ever seen in a hostel. Really friendly and helpful English speaking staff.


No toilet paper for two days while we were there. No maps in English at front desk. But good location, close to Nanjing Pedestrian Street, People's Square and the Bund. Walls in room were a bit mouldy. Otherwise comfy place


Very unfriendly staff : you are underground the impression that you hurt them every time you ask for information, and they this pain is unbearable...


Great place for the money...helpful stafff


The Hostel is excellently located in the downtown area near the metro and major scenic and touristic places like the People"s square, Shanghai Museum, the Bund, Old town, etc. etc. You can change money at the Marriot which is next door and serves as a huge beacon as to the location. You can't get lost with the Mariott next door. Staff was friendly, watch out for the inoperative electricity which requires you to put in your room key into a slot to make it function. A fun stay


Location is central, in a more upscale neighbourhood, easy to find and close to subway. Staff were nice and accommodating. I was impressed with the large, nicely laid out social area. The private room was clean and comfortable and the public showers, toilets, etc were clean. Met some nice people here and would definitely recommend. Wish we could have stayed longer!


Great hostel really. I shared a cab from the airport with an American guy I'd just met, but when the driver said we had arrived and to go down the dark alley, i was pretty glad he was there, but just down, on the right side is the hostel door and its lovely inside, club sandwich/food in general is great. A piece of my friends clothing was stolen but i would stay again i think it was a one off! Met some really nice people.


Need more bathrooms. And improved overall cleanliness.


We only spent one night before heading to the airport. We had a double room. It was nice, maybe a little damp and we couldn't open the window at night because there wasn't any mosquito net... But the hostel is lovely and very well located, I would definitely stay there again !


Everything was great! Very central, but at the same time in a small, quiet street (the sounds from the music school neraby were most of the time rather nice than annoying). We stayed in a double room and shared two showers and one toilet with two other doubles, which was very comfortable. there was also a nice yard where you could hang out and have a coffee. Totally recommendable!


Great location in Shanghai. Good enough for the price but if staying more than two nights I wouldn't recommend the double room in the hostel as it was was very basic and had a strange smell. The shared bathroom is below average.


Great location. The price will be 10% higher than promised, but no big deal, I guess. Bring your own toilet paper & soap.


Nice hostel with a good location and nice bar/restaurant area.


Location is good, 5 minute walk to People's Square. Wifi very frustrating, there are about 20 different networks, some with two-stage sign-in, but none seem to work for longer than 5 minutes at a time. Also, would it really hurt the profit margins that much to provide toilet paper?
