Freezing cold. The staff keeps the heater controls down at the front desk and don't want to turn it on. Maids open the windows at any opportunity. Most of the guests at this hostel are entire Chinese families. This includes grandma and grandpa, babies and children, and even a dog. Yes, I saw someone smuggle a dog into here. It made for a very LOUD stay. There isn't much offered here aside from a bed and a shower, very bare bones compared to most hostels I've stayed in. Really average at best.

Excellent hotel. The building is a little old, but adds to the charm. Nice location, friendly staff. Can't get much cheaper for a single room anywhere in Shanghai.

The staff was really nice and helpful. the smell on the floor was really akward. the beds were clean, but our private bathroom was dirty and old. there were many backpackers, including loud skype conversation at night on the floor. the location is really nice and central

I gave the facilities only poor grade because in our room we didnt have internet. In order to use the wifi we had to go out and sit in the hall. Other than that everything was fine.

Nice hostel, super clean, nice staff. We booked a double room and we got an upgrade to the family room, lucky us ;) Room and facilities really clean, it's really close to public transport, and walking distance from the Bund. It's the only hostel with self-washing machine and self-dryer we could find in China.....we loved it! Wifi was pretty good everywhere. Definitely recommended if you are in Shanghai,

To be honest the experience at this hostel made me really question the validity of reviews I read on this website. I decided to go with the great location rating but discovered it was in a dirty, difficult to find, back alley that was not nearly as convenient as advertised. sure the walk was ok to bund and nanjing rd but there are atleast 5 better same price and closer hostels. the staff had good english but werent very helpful, not good for food, private room was dirty, no windows & area smelly

Positive: Hostel has a very good location, the staff is kind and attentive and the beds are comfortable and clean. Negative: The one bedroom is very small but i guess big enough. There are no nice common rooms in the hostel where you could meet other travelers. In general i would recommend the hostel as it provides good location and clean and safe environment.
