Really clean and newish amenities, nice enough staff and decent food. Great for couples, the private rooms are more like small hotel rooms. Nice bathrooms and lovely lounge area near reception.
My second time there. Extremely friendly staff!
The place is the best we have been in China. Clean, secure, friendly English speaking staff. WiFi everywhere, not just in the lobby like in other places we've been. There is laundry on the 3rd floor. The lobby is great and the bar too. Double room is spacious and clean. The only weird thing is that is has a glass door in the bathroom. So basically the second person can see you on the toilet! WTH is that? But if you are not concerned abt your privacy in the bathroom - double room is perfect.
I really loved this hostel. I had a brilliant time, enjoyed the food around at some of the local restaurants. The location around a 5 min walk from 2 train stations. Enjoyed the bar and the hostel had a great atmosphere.
I really enjoyed staying at Rock & Wood, if i´ll ever come to shanghai i would choose it again!
staff were fantastic, location was great, hostel was clean everything was good

I had the time of my life, happiest days of the year.... Never mind everything else :D
The hostel is really nice, they have this common area which is really nice. The location isn't the best though. Located 15min walk from the next metro or more usefull metro, which is line two. The street is quite dark at night and the region walking from the other line doesn't feel safe. The hostel was good, but the location is not the best for a hostel.
The courtyard and bar area of this hostel was amazing! I love the quiet neighborhood where it is located - lots of street food, nice and quiet, Zhongshan park, but also easy access to line 2. The bed was comfortable, the shower was very nice and everything was extremely clean. So glad we stayed here!
This is the second time we have stayed in this hostel! It will probably be the only hostel I will stay in whenever I am in Shanghai! I love it! The rooms are clean as well as the bathroom! I highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling and looking for great people to meet! Food is decently price and well prepared! Love the location, it is super close to the metro line as well as other things. Also there is a gentlemen staying there with his AWESOME border collie! Awesome dog!

Lovely hostel in shanghai! The common room area is great, it's a pity they have a no outside food policy as their food is very pricey particularly for what you get! Beer is ok value though! Staff are nothing special, fairly curious but I wouldn't say friendly.
This place was amazing! Clean beds, bathrooms, and facilities. The staff was very friendly, and the downstairs lobby/bar area is a really cool place to hang out. Also, they have a cat! And a dog! Cute little buddies. The only thing is that it was a little hard to find at first. I think that might be more my fault, though, because I'm sort of directionally challenged.
