The hostel of my dreams: cheap, clean, right in the very centre of Shanghai. The personnel was polite and the service impeccable! I will certainly come back here again whenever I will visit Shanghai again.. excellent hostel!

The room was bigger than we expected and quite clean (no cockroaches). The air conditioning worked perfectly, we had a nice shower and even a hair dryer in the bathroom. They provided us with fresh towels, but we had to buy shower gel and shampoo at the reception (1yuan each for one time use). The hostel is very well located and we had a wonderful stay, would definitely come again!

We took the private twin room with own bathroom. The bathroom smelled. They had a nice wall made of pressed wood in the bedroom and another one in the bathroom. The one in the bathroom was already black by mold / rotting for 15 cms from the floor level. The reception lady came at 11:15 to hurry us to leave. We thought that check-out time was 11:00, but when we hurried down to check-out, the real time was 12. She just wanted to "make sure" that we leave on time.

Excellent location, just 2-3 mins walk to Nanjing east road metro (and of coz Nanjing East road shoppingh area). Very cosy and comfort room. There are even a little kitchen down there :D

Pros: - location, location, location - a good western style breakfast (that felt like a brunch) for under 50 RMB Cons: - the staff was not very friendly - even though it looks like a new, trendy hostel, after a couple of days you realize it is not the cleanest (talking about mold in a lot of places) - you can hear your neighbors playing music at 2 am, and your other neighbors screaming in the corridor at 8 am. Not good if you are jet lagged - the internet is too slow - couldn't skype home

Good location and clean. Maybe not the friendliest place but still met some people so all good! It has everything you need.

This was the second time I have stayed at this hostel. The location right near Nanjing Road and the subway are the main draws for me. The room was very nice and the staff friendly. Would definitely recommend this hostel and would stay there next time I go to Shanghai.

Very close to the center of Shanghai, only 500m to the Bund. Great location.

Double room was really good value. Staff were friendly. Private rooms are on 2nd floor so a bit more road noise than the dorm that we stayed in on other nights which was on 5th floor. Acceptable internet and working aircon. Bathroom in dorm room was not very clean or well fabricated but at least it was only shared between six people.

Stayed in a private and have no complaints. The location is perfect. The staff was a little cold, but it was National Holiday and they were probably just busy.

Located in City centre and 5min walk to metro station, but 5th floor don't have lift access, need to walk from 4th floor.

The staff is very helpful. A girl named Tom was especially helpful for my many questions. The outdoor seating on the sidewalk is very nice. But it's very condensed and that's where all the smokers go making it difficult for me to breathe. It would be nice if there was some place to go outside without so much smoke - as some other hostels have rooftop seating areas which are very spacious.

The room and bathroom were a bit smelly, even after we opened all the windows in the room. Otherwise the hostel Was quite nice, the foyer area was well decorated. The hostel cooked nice, reasonably priced food on site and the location was amazing (if you want to be in the heart of shanghai shopping district and near the bund).

One of the best hostel in shanghai.

The hallways are too dim, and makes the place feel more cramped and unclean although it probably isn't.

Beds are very hard!

첫 해외 여행에, 첫 유스호스텔 사용이라 다른 곳과 비교하기에는 좀 애매합니다. 그냥 저의 만족도를 전체적으론 가격대비 만족합니다. 하지만 숙소를 같이 사용하시는 분들이 대부분 중국분들이고, 여행자가 아니라 상하이에서 생활하는 분 같아서 여행 정보를 얻거나 친분을 나누기는 어려웠습니다. 위치적으로 매우 장점이 있습니다 난징동루에서 도보로 3~5분 거리입니다. 도보+지하철 이동하면 상하이 시내는 대부분 볼수 있었고 상하이 교통카드 이용하면 가격도 비싸지 않습니다. 환승도 편하구요.
