I'm not sure why I didn't pay closer attention to the other reviews on here. The hostel was very average, with the location and relative price for the room being the only benefit. The first room I was shown to smelled heavily of cigarettes and because it was an internal room (although I was only informed of this on arrival) there was no way to air it out. In the end I changed rooms but the next one was not much better.


The only thing worth going to this hostel is for the location. The staff doesnt speak much english and they dont assist you with information or even a free map around the area. The room dosent have windows the mattress its rocksolid and the bathroom doesnt have a shower holder so its very uncomfortable. The wifi only works in the lobby.

我们并没有入住国际青年旅社的原因是凌晨12点钟的 (Curfew)宵禁, 我们2位从国外来的中年人平均年龄43岁竟然被要求如小孩子般准时回来。我希望没有被收取任何费用,因为我们完全没有用那间国际青年旅社的任何服务。 We didn't stay in this Shanghai Youth Hostel reason being there is CURFEW set on 12:00am, we are average age 43 years old being treated like a child. Kindly do not charge us any single cent as we never using any of their facilities at Shanghai. regards, KH, Teh +6017-6622209 e-Mail: alfredteh008@yahoo.com.tw


Near metro, nice staff, i will be back!


The hostel would be even more comfy if they'd offer drinks and a few snacks. Timer would be better than carpet - it's a hostel and not a high class hotel, so the carpet doesn't look nice anymore, therefore the room doesn't look totally clean

In the room the tapestry peeling off, the wifi works just in the lobby and electric socket don't work correctly. Despite this the room is comfortable. The location is excellent because we are close to the bund and the Pearl tower


The dorms were vary cramped (six beds in a windowless room that really shouldn't have had more than 4 beds) and had no airflow other than the aircon (which could only be run when the key was in the slot), so rooms tended to smell a bit. Staff seemed very indifferent and unwelcoming. Good location a short walk away from the Bund. Good for a night or two in Shanghai
