Just 5-minute walk to metro circle line, by which you can go anywhere in 30 mins. However the neighborhood is a little bit poor, with barely food stores or convenient shops. The staff is nice and funny. The best part is the public area, providing food of different countries and fast Internet connection. Besides, the atmosphere is good. It is never hard to see people talking and making friends here.

This hostel was a good stay, a little more than we had paid in Beijing, for good reason. The king size bed was almost too big :) the shower excellent in private en suit. Hotel staff always did best to help even with language barrier, Making calls etc Some taxis couldn't find the place easily even with hotel flyer, may be to do with them rather than the location. It's easy to find the Station and quickly get to main parts of the city center. Food is good, free pool table and wi fi all over.

The resting area is pretty cozy. There are two dogs and a fat cat wandering the hostel. They tend to open and close the door (to the resting area) quite a lot, making it very chilly. Turning up the heat by standard wouldn't hurt or putting some blankets everywhere.

New and clean with a nice-looking bar and lounge area complete with cat. Staff were friendly and competent, though the night manager didn't look too happy when I needed to leave at 6am. Hostel is not well signposted from the road and the toilets and showers on my floor were not well indicated. Clientele mainly Chinese when I stayed. Handy to subway line 4, but in a quiet area not near a busy part of Shanghai, so you need to travel to do anything. Local supermarket etc. nearby.

This hostel has a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, and the employees are super friendly. It's also home to three pets: two dogs and a cat. If you're an animal lover like me, you will love the place. The wi-fi works much better in the dorms than it does in the lobby, and so does the heat. There's a giant heater in the dining area, but only the top part of it blows warm air; the bottom part blows cool air. I strongly advise against sitting too closely to it. The common areas are fabulous.

가격대비 괜찮은 호스텔이라 생각 합니다. 샤워 침대 거실 좋앗으며, 아쉬움 점은 위치이네요... 지하철역과 거기가 상당히 멀어 한번 들어오면 나가기 귀찮습니다.

Overall the hotel is good. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and everything was great and comfortable. The location is a bit far from everything, but you can easily get to the metro stations close by. Nice neighborhood as well as hotel staff. Breakfast was not as good and in general the hostel menu is a bit expensive. There was a huge cat walking through the kitchen and all over the place, not sure if it had a try of my food as well. The hotel ambiance was top notch. Recommended.

We had a lot of problems in this hostel, most of them due to the poor service. Before arriving, we sended A FEWS emails asking if there was any problem related to the time of arrival. NO ONE OF THEM WAS ANSWERED. So at the moment we got there, OUR RESERVATIONS HAD BEEN CANCELLED. The man at the reception was didn't solve our problems, put us in SEPARATED ROOMS, wich with a DIFFERENT PRICE, but CHARGED as if we were all in a more EXPENSIVE one, we HAD TO ARGUE with them to pay the right price

Comfy beds. Good showers. Great common area and bar, perhaps more suited to groups and couples. Helpful staff with great English language skills. Nice area for tasty local street food.

rock and wood hostel was very nice. location is kind a hard ti find. but zhoungsan park station that located a hostel is very conveinient. there is big mart, macdonald, city bank, starbucks etc. and you can see local people's life. and it's a subway line 2,3 and 4 so you can go your place that you plan easily.

As far as hostels go in China you're honestly not going to do any better. Clean, comfy mattresses, staff speak English well and the tsingtao's are cold which is rare. Just look out for the younger chinese people that you meet in the bar downstairs, they say they live there but disappear when the bar closes and apparently work for the government. Also look out for French Canadians, they be cray

Showers were good, toilets needed to be cleaned more often. Check out is 12 but at 10.20 the cleaners came in and stripped the bed and were really rude about stuff still on it, throwing sheets down onto the ground (and me) as I tried to pack which was less than acceptable. Other staff were nice. Bar is a nice place to unwind or start the day, big lockers, good location, good value. Would stay again.

I traveled around china for 5 weeks and this hostel was by far the best one! Rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and had a great modern feel. The bar/restaurant was good, served both Chinese and western foods at an ok price. The only downside to this hostel was it's location. It takes around 20 minutes on the subway to reach the centre if shanghai but it was easily done. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to shanghai on a budget!
