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.

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.
