This is basically an average motel advertised as a hostel. No information about the surrounding area or things to do in shanghai, nor is there a decent common room. Air conditioner was not working which made for a reasonably uncomfortable night. Fine if you are desperate for a night's accommodation but wouldn't make for a great time in Shanghai for longer than that.

The hostel is quite near the subway station and the Bund, so it's easy to get there. Besides, the staff are very helpful.

Good hostel for what it is. Location is brilliant for the bund and easy to find from their instructions. The dorm rooms are basic but we only paid £8! The wifi is a bit sketchy but again, look at the price. Staff were very friendly and even came and woke us up so we didn't miss our train. I'd use the hostel again

Awesome location and the staff was very helpful and nice. The hostel is quite clean but the room we got was very stuffy and smelly because of being right next to another building ;-(

Very central - within 5 minutes walking distance to the bund and central shopping areas and restaurants! Was more like a dorm rooms than a hostel - a lot of chinese students living here and not so many people travelling through, so not a great hostel to meet other people. But very cheap compared to other hostels in Shanghai.

Nice hostel, good location, not really much of an atmosphere. Got upgraded to a private room so can't complain

Everything was good, except for the day that one of the girls woke me up to ask for my passport. I believe that the staff have to notified the guest that they have a problem and they couldn't process the information of the passport and they will need to ask for your passport in the future.

I had a single room with shared bath, which was very bad value. A windowless hole under the roof in which you could barely stand up, with 40cm of space on one side of the bed. Terrible. Interenet was useless, too - every few minutes connection would be lost, sometimes for a few seconds, sometimes for a few minutes. On the plus side is the very friendly staff and the location which is close to the bund.

The room did not have wifi, the signal did not reach it. The air conditioning was not very efficient.

Below average in all ways. Stay somewhere else.

One of the cleanest hostels I've been in China, however Wi-Fi has been quite a problem, even on the computers in the common room... Unless you only need to access Chinese sites (I'm not talking about blocked sites, but sites I usually use without VPN and work)

All great, except very very very slow WiFi. Sometimes it's not working at all

Everything's cool, except average hygiene and no private toilet for each dorm. The location is near to the Bund but a bit further from subway station.


89%

The location was just a walk from the Subway and The Bund. Lots to eat and enjoy in the immediate vicinity. The second floor was offices, the rooms were quiet and the stay was very pleasant. The back exit, where the office entrance is, at night is very dark so watch your step.
