Perfect location, close to a lot cheap eateries. Good wifi in dorm. Shower is pleasantly hot, too. Booked 6-bed dorm and got 10-bed dorm. Window panes in dorm are dirty. Dorm is 45 yuan, after paying 10% to Hostelworld, 40.5 is payable. Two reception girls attempted to charge 41 and said they ALWAYS do this because NO CHANGE for half yuan. I had to spend 2 minutes to get half yuan back. Really small money, but their attitude and excuse are disappointing.

Great stay at Old West Gate. In a very cool location, close to Old Town Shanghai. A little far from everything else, but the staff and facilities make up for it - great stay and low price!
Close to the old town. Friendly staff and atmosphere, and very welcoming. Rooms and bathroom could of been cleaner. There was a kitchen but weren't shown if we could use it and quite dirty. Got a kettle in our room though and downstairs tea making facilities. Overall a pleasant stay.
Breakfast or coffee options would make this the place I would choose to stay at every time I visited Shanghai. Otherwise, ACE!
