POSITIVE: The hostel is 5-10 mins walk from Pudong Avenue subway stop, so comfortable for visiting the city by subway. It is also 30 mins walk from Pudong-skyscreepers NEGATIVE: Near the hostel LATE IN THE EVENING/NIGHT everything is closed and there's pretty nothing


The hostel should have more activities to make the guest know each others.


Overall a great place to stay. Nice bar/restaurant area and the rooms were in good shape. The ensuite bathrooms were a bit grotty (and cold) but the common bathrooms were nice. I'd definitely stay here again though - really helpful staff and good location. Directions to the hostel could be better. Use Google maps to plot it out before you go and take note of the exit to take from the subway.


- Very nice and helpful staff - Room with no window and very humid though - The hostel's food is good, but there are cheaper restaurants just out the door - Too bad we have to pay 10 yuans for a tourist map that will brek quickly

It is nice to meet you in our hostel . Thanks for your review . sorry to put you in a dorm without window, next time you can choose a dorm with window . I think it will be much better. And i think you take it wrong about the map, because we asked for 10yuan from you for deposit , not for selling . As usual we would give it back when you return the map. Anyway ,I am sorry for your lose. Hope to see you next time ! ---Mo, from hiddengarden


Very nice hostel with helpfull staff. A little bit outside of the down town. Generally, I can recommend it.


Difficult to rate staff because some of them didn't speak english or help us at all but one guy (bartender?) spoke excellent english and was really awesome and helpful! Didn't even accept tips for his great service. Our toilet was not clean but the room was very warm for winter.
