Location was great, just a street away from the East Nanjing Road subway station. Place is clean and theres no shortage of showers. But the staff were pretty unwilling to help with any questions and seemed a little rude sometimes

뭐 시설이나 청결은 고만고만하구요. 난징동루역이 바로 근처에 있어서 접근성은 상당히 좋습니다. 와이탄은 걸어서 10분 15분정도 걸렸던거 같은데 가는길이 번화가고 잠깐 야경보러 설렁설렁 걷기도 나쁘지 않았네요. 도미토리에서 이것저것 따지기 그렇잖아요? 시설은 평균에 접근성좋으니 만족하면서 지냈네요.

Very nice place, I loved the atmosphere at the Cafe/bar downstairs. The springs on the mattress stuck out and were a bit uncomfortable, and they didn't have towels for rent/use by guests. Otherwise, great experience!

This hostel really does have a fantastic location, it is one street behind East Nanjing Rd and less than a 2 minute walk from the metro station. Modern hostel with a nice bar which serves food too.

Wonderful hostel a block behind the main shopping street in Shanghai! We were so close to H&M, Forever 21, Meters/Bonwe, Gap, etc. It was great. The metro station is so close too. The hostel is a good value for a big city and the staff was friendly.

Great location close to metro and 10 minute walk to the river/bund area. Staff was really nice. We had a private room which was pretty pricey but worth it for the location. Private room was simple but nice.

The hostel is not in a good shape. The lobby is small, dirty and there is no luggage room so all the bags are kept openly in the lobby area bothering other customers. The six bed room I booked was the smallest room for six people I've ever slept in, it was dirty and the toilet was smelling very bad. I had blood stains on my sheets as well. The team is nice but they can't make up the overall bad impression. Hope the hostel can improve their standards!

Me and a friend stayed in their luxury room for a night and it was splendid! The place was clean, it's foreigner friendly (yes, there are inns that are not foreigner friendly in china) as in the staff can understand English well and they are super friendly, they provide everything a backpacker needs (ENGLISH map, warm cup of coffee, cocktail, burger, toiletries, etc). However, they only had ONE security guard that works almost 24/ 7. My friend even found him slept on the the receptionist desk.

Our room had an humid problem, they do not solve this problem therefore our room smell bad. They need to have more service in face to the client.

Great location and pretty good sleeping and lounging conditions. I liked the tables out front and in the lobby as well as the kitchen space on the second floor. The internet was pretty decent. I didn't have a lot of interaction with the staff but they seemed somewhat helpful.

Stayed in a twin room. Great en suite bathroom. Nice and clean. Key card meant excellent security. Super close to the metro and within walking distance of great restaurants too. The staff seemed swamped but were helpful enough. Lots of communal spaces. Cheap laundry facilities too.
