In all honesty, this was my first stay in a Hostel. I am new to the traveling world and was excited to meet new people and try this Hostel experience. IT.WAS.GREAT! The staff worked with me as I checked in late due to a late bus, my roommates were awesome and friendly, and the bar was affordable! I highly recommend the Rock&Wood!

This is a typical backpackers. The rooms are small and the walls as thin as paper. A lot of noise from drunk backpackers (not the fault of the establishment). If you like to socialize and don't mind noise then this is the place to go. If you want a good nights rest after a busy day of sightseeing then I don't think this place is for you. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is a bit far from the subway if you have heavy bags.

For me "being" a hostel means that the place is not a hotel, so to speak you will met people, the staff will ask you if you already have plans and provide you with maps and useful thinks, etc. This hostel is 100% business, it's kind of big, they sell everything (even the city maps, they don't have the really good ones for free that you can get in touristic offices)... and above that the place is not even really clean and we'll mantain. They need to go back to roots, but if you want cheap hotel..

By far the nicest hostel I've stayed in in China. I definitely recommend it and will be back again! It's got a lovely, relaxing downstairs area that feels a bit like an island resort - it's a great escape after a long day walking around busy Shanghai.

nice place, beautiful common area and bar, good staff. Definitely Value for money. I didn’t like the location (location not clean), a bit far from the main attractions/Shanghai Central. Recommended for long stay if you are for studying language or any other reason to enjoy Shanghai longer/ spending less (it is quit cheap area).

A very large hostel, impersonal, with huge turnover of visitors. One night there were a group of americans and canadians partying in the corridors outside the dorms. The hostel should ask visitors to show consideration of others and e.g. be quiet after midnight. Showers down one flight of stairs. Although sharing with three others, there appeared to be another person using the room and one of the lockers. downstairs bar was nice, and food was good.

The hostel staff are friendly and helpful. The hostel is in a good location, clean and fairly well maintained. The wifi access is good. The food and drinks in the restaurant are well priced. A few more brochures about local and city centre attractions / buses would be good e.g. World Circus.

you have a calm hostel, with warm atmosphere...the little courtyard is very nice, so good to have a place to sit outside and have a chat. the pond, the half open rooms, almost pagoda in a modern way.. it creates a simple and cozy atmosphere! You chose a nice spot in the city to have a hostel... a bit seperated from the busy city ...to retreat....calm down. thanks for the coffee in the morning! i really enjoy local food...i think it would be nice to offer some simple chinese breakfast too!
