Really nice hostel but the staff lost my passport for a time and they weren't really concern about it.. Kind of disappointed about this. I finally take it back the day after but without any apologize..

The location is great but besides that the hostel is far from being described as a good hostel. the room is so tiny, it can get very crowded. The staff are among the worst hostel staff I've seen, they speak good English but they are not nice what so ever, not willing to help, they don't care about your stay and they rarely got any information about Shanghai. There is no atmosphere in the hostel, some families were staying there and it kills the place atmosphere. food was expensive but nice.

Good location in Shanghai and easy to reach from the airport. Wifi decent for China although I didn't have signal in my dorm. Kitchen is lacking a lot of supplies. Breakfast not included. Overall I'd recommend.

I stayed in a six bed dorm was very nice. The showers were clean toilets had toilet paper. Staff were great. Unbeatable location around the corner from Nanjing Road close to food and shops.

The staff were polite and helpful. One of them helped guide our group to the hostel by speaking to our taxi driver when we got lost; East Nanjing station was not in service when we arrived. 4 bed dorm was very small but cosy in a way. We were pleased the room had lockers. The en-suite bathroom facilities were good. The room was clean, the bed linen was clean but some of it was stained. They should either find a better laundromat or replace stained linen. Food was good. Quiet place.

Good location, kind staff. Walls in the room were wet and there was a really weird smell in the corridor.

This hostel is very clean, well decorated and has brilliant facilities. The food provided was very tasty and affordable - the Gin and Tonics (during happy hour) were great too! The location is fantastic! on East Nanjing road - one of the biggest roads in Shanghai, 25 meters from the big shopping area and 5 minute walk from the Bund.

Excellent location. Very nice staff, asked them a lot of things and answered us everything with no problems. Wifi works good and they also have a computer which you can use. The bedrooms are very nice, the mattress are quite soft compared with other hostels in China. The only thing I would say is that the toilets smell a bit bad. Anyway, I will defiantly come back if I ever visit Shanghai again.

I am confident to say that this hostel is one of the best in Shanghai. You can easily walk to Nanjingdongru and the Bund. Also it is hygienically well maintained. Strongly recommended!
