The hostel is conveniently located near Nanjing East Road. I stayed in a twin room and it was nice and clean.

location is nice, within 5 minutes to reach nanjing road, plus near the metro station. Cleanliness is ok, a bit improvement in toilet is better. the only problem is cant connect via wifi, also some noise from the air conditioner

Best hostel I have ever stayed at in Shanghai! This was my second time staying there, and I loved it. Too bad, the wifi did not work though. The location is perfect, it is super close to nanjing road and the bund - my favorite spot in Shanghai! Totally would recommend and come again! :)

Rooms were small and cramped, lockers not big enough for larger bags, and little space for them on the floor. Pro Location good near metro and walkable to all major sights.

Location is excellent, very close to Nanjing Road and central Shanghai and Metro station. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Room is clean but toilet is smell. Overall is acceptable and quite value for money.

very nice place

Very clean, some of the nicest dorms I've stayed in. Each dorm room has its own bathroom, so you only have to share with your roommates - very nice. Location on Nanjing Lu is excellent - a must-visit for first-time visitors to Shanghai. Within walking distance of lots of restaurants and a great bakery. Staff were helpful and nice but the desk was left unattended at night. My biggest complaint is that the wifi is terrible; I wasn't able to connect once the whole time.

We stayed at the cornered room which was so good. However, every morning the maids always made a loud noise and put many blankets in front of our room.

I had a wonderful stay at this hostel. I met a couple of interesting people. The bathroom was super clean and I like the fact that one bathroom is shared per dorm. The staffs were helpful and friendly. The location of this hostel is strategic and I felt safe roaming around at night at that area.

Amazing location, highly recommend

We stayed in a private double room, it was quite nice. It had a soft comfy bed, a clean and modern bathroom, and even a couch/lounge area. The hostel even has an elevator! It is located quite close to a metro station for easy access to the rest of the city, and there is quite a lively street nearby for evening walks. You are relatively close to the Bund, but it is still a little bit of a walk.

The location is perfect but the hostel has a lot of problems, it smells really bad on the Floors and the Internet is a *! The staff don't help you with nothing but if you want a hostel just for sleeping is perfect!

We stayed in a double twin room and it was very clean and spacious. Probably the biggest and cleanest room I have ever stayed at a hostel. But the wifi sucked at our floor (4/F) and it was quite irritating, and the elevator looked shabby and was kind of scary. Anyway, I enjoyed my stay there. would recommend it to friends.

I only stayed one night in a double room, which was very nice and clean. Good value for money and great central location.

I loved the location and value for money. The wifi connection was a bit temperamental, but that sort of comes with the territory.
