For the money we paid,our stay was nice enough in Shanghai. The minus: no car or van pick-up service from and to the airport, the banging of doors after 11pm (their closing is really noisy - and startling), the toilets are not cleaned often enough in the day/night (it follows the Chinese standards, not the Western ones). The plusses: really friendly staff there to help out, good-humored atmosphere, an adorable garden, and a nice, nice price.
We stated in a 6 bed dorm, the room was a bit tight with all our big bags but we managed. There are good size lockers in the rooms also and the beds are pretty comftable and big beds. The shower facilities were down a leve for us which sucked a bit. There are hot water machines in the hostel which help with cheap noodle dinners. :) about a 10 minute walk to the metro station.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Can't say much about security since we stayed only for a night. The cafeteria was good. The double bed room we booked was a little strange, because the bathroom did not have a main door :-D
Excellent place - clean, comfy beds, big lockers, great staff. Not much atmosphere but still a very comfortable and cheap, convenient place to stay.
The lounge is beautiful and has great atmosphere, but you can't bring any food and drinks from the outside. My room wasn't the cleanest. The location is a bit out of the way. With that being said, I also stayed at Le Tour and thought R&W was a better option for meeting people.
Easy to find and located in a calm area. Great if you want to relax from a day of sightseeing. The yard and the pub is very nice. We really liked staying there.
