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!

Great hostel! Feels new. Not the most cosy one but no complaints.. A bit far from the center if thats a problem for some :)

The lobby is pretty cool and laid back. The staff was helpful. The hostel is somewhat difficult to find as it is located on an alleyway. I didn't like the fact that one of my roommates seemed to be living there so she had a lot of stuff laying around; I would suggest that the hostel limits the number of days a guest can stay to avoid this.

Location was excellent and staff very helpful. Facilities are great for the price and having a kitchen, a bar, pool table (sometimes a bit noisy with balls hitting the floor) etc. is really a plus for the whole experience. The only thing I was against was the wearing of street shoes into the sleeping rooms. I really think there should be a sign asking everyone to remove their street shoes before entering the whole facility or before entering the sleeping rooms. Less to clean for the cleaners.

Pros: exceptional building, activities (pool table, guitar, movie nights), bar/ cafe inside, great location (2 train stations nearby), modern, clean communal shower + toilet facilities Cons: bedrooms can be cold, light may be an issue, staircase is quite clinical, staff were ok, expensive menu. Make sure you go 'out' out, street food for breakfast, less than ¥5

Nice stay, only there for one night on the way back to London. Lovely staff, the receptionist helped me with getting my cell phone topped up using her own phone account. She didn't have to, but went the extra distance. Nice.

Nice place and staff. Just recommend to update the map. Since there are two kaiyuan school so people won't get lost when locating the hostel. Will go there again.

Really nice place to stay, good location, clean and comfortable. The downstairs communal/bar area is really good. Nice place to chill out, meet people and play some pool.

Well located hostel close to 2 subway stops. Cleanliness is ok for a Chinese hostel but not up to western standards. Like most Chinese places it smells like an outhouse. Really nice bar/restaurant/common area. Food is ok, drinks are well priced. Can't bring in ur own food which is annoying. Great place to meet people. Big comfy couches, lots of places to plug in. Beds have own light and plugs. Rooms were damp and stuffy, just ok.

I had a nice stay there, bed is very comfortable. The downside is that the room is tiny, the bathroom is not very clean. But it's good price for sh, what else can i say.

Privates are a bit pricy, and can get a bit noisy (walls are very thin). But still it's a good choice in terms of location and facilities
