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.

The dorm room was hot and didn't have a outside window. Room was a bit small but the bathroom was clean. Location fantastic.

Wifi was switched off in the middle of the night... my mom was very ill in the hospital and I had to call home (14 hours time difference) and I wasn't able to. There was a security guard sleeping on the sofa at the entrance. he didn't speak english and when someone asked him in chinese about Wifi, he said he had no idea and went back to sleep. Breakfast was very disappointing, if you have for fruit, they will give you 5 small pieces (not exaggerating.

Good location if you want to be downtown, and some helpful staff, but also some very unhelpful staff. Room smelt strongly of stagnant water, and had cockroaches. The wifi did not extend into the rooms. The communal sitting/eating areas were pokey and small.

most of all, the location is best. just 2~3 minutes distance from metro 2/10 line and East nanjng road. also Waitan is 10~15 minutes distance by walk . most of staffs are very nice. there english isn't good and always housekeepers are talking to Chinese, but i feel warm. however some strange smell distinguished me(but someone said "you can smell it this in the hong kong ") and this hostel did not accept credit card, also you pay deposit(200 yuan). before you check in, check your balance.

Perfect location - less than 5 min walk to train station and 10 minute walk to the Bund and People's Square. Pudong, the old town and French Concession are all a short train ride away. Very cheap by western standards. Also clean and relatively comfortable.

Great location, nice and clean rooms, good bar. I think the only thing to improve is the staff, since they are a little apathetic.
