Nice hostel a few blocks away from the metro. Definitely more of a hotel feel than a hostel. Staff wasn't the friendliest but overall helpful. Would be a good place to go if you were going with a group.

The hostel is very clean, staffs r helpful. it is a place for tourists who prefer quiet hostel instead of party place. As there is at least 60% of guests r working in shanghai and choose this place for long stay, and lots of ppl r in business trips...so you will see lots of ppl wear formal suit in the horning and at night...hard to say good or bad, just bit strange sometimes.....for rest of others, all higher than average.

Have stayed here many times on the weekends. Good location because it is close to 3 metro lines (line 2, line 3 and line 4) BUT not close to any of the tourist sites. Super clean -Cleaning crew seen multiple times throughout the day. I've stayed in the 4 bed-dorms which have enough space for everyone and a personal locker. Many showers and toilets on all levels. Good restaurant/cafe on the main floor, very easy to meet people here.

The location is okay, and a bit difficult to find, especially if you use Google maps. Beds are quite comfortable and the common area is lovely. Would recommend.

Really good hostel! I enjoyed my staying here. Really clean room and showers. There is a little graden and there are relaxing couches. Good breakfast. The don't have any tourist trips.

Pros: fantastic common area, good showers, comfortable beds, good location. Cons: there are lots of long-term guests (old Chinese men) who smoke in the toilets, which makes for a bad smell and strange atmosphere in a youth hostel. The staff are generally unhelpful and indifferent to anything guests have to say, and are not particularly knowledgable about the immediate area. The pavilion in the garden would be much nicer if the pillows weren't soaked in cat urine.

The toilet is not clean but fine. Wifi is weak sometimes. Anyway, nice place to stay.

The hostel had a lovely courtyard and bar/cafe area, with a beautiful chinese style Koi pond. The dining and entertainment area was great for everyone, due to its laid back atmosphere. There was a reading area in one corner and a pool table in another. The staff were friendly and tried to help where they could. The rooms were nice, clean and modern. Would recommend this place to others who don't mind staying just a little out of the main city area (that's not to say it isn't still very close).

We had a fantastic stay at RockWood hostel! The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke great English. The showers and toilets were clean and there were plenty of them. Wifi was great in the dorms but not so good in the bar and lobby. It was only a short walk to the subway and 4 stops from People's square, making it very easy to get around in Shanghai. This hostel was excellent value for money and I would certainly stay there again.

staff was very nice and very helpful. The only surprise was the number of pets running around. Visitors should be forewarned about such things due to allergies and preference purposes.

Hostel is a bit far from the centre but it has a good atmosphere. The staff are ok, they could have been friendlier.

I had a poor experience with housekeeping coming in at 10 am and waking us up even though we weren't checking out. I also had another run-in where my feet were actually swept. When I mentioned this to the front desk, they seemed interested in helping but any other time I had asked questions, I felt like I was bothering them. Also, the restaurant is very nice but they isn't a place you can eat your own food which is unfortunate since China offers such great foods. The place is spotless though.

Rock&Wood was the best hostel I had in China since now. The staff is really nice and helps you with bookings or other stuff. The atmosphere in the bar or in the garden is really great. Good place to relax. Was also very clean and there where 2 metro stations, lots of restaurants, shops etc around. Keep it up!
