Amazing and huge outdoor and common areas. Bar and pool table are fun spots to hang out. Wifi works great throughout the hostel. Loved the bathroom facilities. Great for meeting people. The only thing we didn't like about the hostel was the front door is padlocked after midnight and only one worker who can't speak English can come open the door for you. Hostel should get keys or passcode system to make it more accessible for guests. Other than that, really loved it here!

Excellent location, close to metro. Very nice reception area. The rooms were small but clean. When asking for tips and information we were helped quite well (especially for Chinese standards).

I recommend the hostel offer tourist recommendations - they didn't even know about the Propaganda Art Center nearby.

lovely breakfast, close to the subway; my friend and i split a private bedroom and it was clean, air conditioning was great. no soap and very small towels, and the shower was transparent so we kinda had to stay out of the washroom area. had a discount on coffee for the first day [so necessary] and the layout of the hostel was one of the nicest i've stayed at in china!

Pros: - Good location, close to metro lines and several shopping malls. It takes about an hour to walk to Nanning road. - Book lending/exchange service. - Fridge/laundry facilities. - Lockers provided and you can fit a large rucksack in. - Friendly staff who will book activities for you if you so wish. Cons: - Poor wifi; painfully slow and difficult to load. - The corridors had an aroma of wet dog and the surrounding streets smelt like urine. - Really small dorm rooms.

A good place to lay down in Shanghai. A 5-7 minute walk to the nearest metro although this does involve one change to get onto the main line 2. It is situated down a rather inconspicuous lane that doesn't smell so good but it's not really a problem. The dorm room was a little tasteless but good value for money. I was booked an extortionate taxi to the train station although I'm sure this was no onus of the hostel and was rather the efforts of a scamming driver. A good place to stay all in all!

Great stay. Loved how quiet the location was...didn't have to worry about noise at night (important because I was doing business in China. A few bugs here and there, but hey...this is China. If you want something immaculate, you should stay in a hotel anyway. Helpful staff and their espresso is pretty solid (better than Pacific/Costa/Starbs in CHN). Happy trails!

Rooms were dusty and not very clean!

Nice staff, they can speak good English, good location, nice bar, AC working perfectly, good beds and lockers, clean. The showers were only in the third floor, which was a bit inconvenient, but no a big deal. I would totally recommend it!

Overall a very good hostel to stay at in Shanghai! There are no locks on the doors from the outside so anyone can just come in, but they do have card entry into every room so that makes up for it.

The hostel is in between 2 subway stations which are both about a 10 min. walk. While the interior in the common room looks really nice, the rooms look slightly outdated. The staff was ok, they spoke english well. What I did not like about this hostel, is not really due to the hostel itself, but many guests werent travelers but were either doing a course or had a job to go to.

Had a very good time at rock & wood! Staff was nice and friendly. Check in went quick and easy. You have to pay a deposit of 100 ¥ for the key card. Location is fine, near subway which was convenient. Would choose this place again :)
