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.

Good location. Good lounge. Damp, moldy rooms though.


It was hard to find.. and will be much harder as the road in front of the hostel is blocked by some fence.. so if you are on the main road.. you wont see the street going to the hostel. We used google map to locate the hostel.. and it was pretty accurate. The staff is super helpful amd wont hesitate to come pick you up on pudong ave if you get lost. Hostel abiance is excellent.. there is a bar.. tv.. ps3, books, magazines at the lobby. previous user comments are accurate

Hey Patrick, Thanks for your gift and your comment! since you know the way now it wont be a problem for you to arrive here next time :) I am looking forward to seeing you next time, in shanghai or Philippines . Shanghai is quite cold now and enjoy your summer time at home! Have a nice day! Mo, from hiddengarden


Enjoyed the party night arranged by the guys at the hostel where they wanted to show off their cocktails. This bought everyone together to meet and greet which was fun. Not many other backpackers here as this hostel seemed to attract mainly Chinese students who were in the city for job interviews. All in all, not a bad stay.

Hey Elliot, Thanks for your comment and i am happy you enjoyed the party night. Hope you see you next time ! Regards, Mo from hiddengarden


I had a great time there, really love the beautiful cosy yard they have. People there are fiendly and helpful, definitely worth the price.


Nice Hostel if you take a dorm, because our double-bedroom was next to the air cons outside and we could only see the wall of the next house and a lot of clothes from other People.The room had a very hard mold smell, especially the bathroom. You have to walk a bit more than 10 minutes from the metrostation. The staff is nice and you can borrow a big map. The courtyard is beautifull, especially in the evening to hang out.
