The location is really close to the center. The sandwhiches on the rooftop bar are the best in town!!

Fantastic location right beside the bund and peoples square. Very easy to find too. Staff were all welcoming and provided information when I asked. Great value also so would definitely recommend.

Great location since it's at Peoples Square. Several rooms were smelling very bad and the problem seem to be a drainage problem. The staff does not communicate problems with each other when they change shift so if you have an issue, be sure to get it sorted immediately. I hate the fact that the elevator wouldn't close without a room key because it's inconvenient when multiple people stay in 1 room

Hostel was nice, but the staff when we arrived were not friendly. I would be more likely to stay here again if I could check in with a computer, and not need to interact with the nighttime staff.

The quality of the room was one of the best I've ever stayed in for a hostel and the location is great. Only downside is that the common space is on the roof upstairs - not ideal in the winter, although Shanghai itself isn't the best place to go in the winter.

I really liked this place. My private room was really cool (the first one wasn't because it smelled but then they changed room for me). It is right beside a metro and within walking distance of the bund. It also has a cute roof terrace serving beer during the night and breakfast in the morning. Was well impressed.

Restaurant downstairs was good, helpful staff, very clean rooms. Only complaint was that some twin rooms had transparent bathrooms, which was slightly awkward.

Stayed here for one night with a few friends so that we could all have a night out in Shanghai without needing to worry about getting transport back to our apartments on the edge of the city. The hostel is located as close to the centre of Shanghai as you can probably find, and only a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station too! The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, and the lockers very generously sized. The people in the rooms helped to create a fantastic atmosphere. Loved it!

I had a great stay, no issues. The hostel was very conveniently located to get anywhere in the city. The room was clean and comfortable.

One of the best hostels I have ever been. The onliest negative aspect is, that there is only one toilet and one shower fo 8 people and there are no public toilets.

Great Location, in walking distance of the People's Square and Nanjing Rd./The Bund. Restaurants and supermarkets/shops all around. But Internet was barely working(really slow), so no Skype or VPN. Also no soap in the bathrooms and warm water only occasionally... Furthermore the laundry-service is overpriced and clothes were not folded. But the beds are good and since you're probably in Shanghai for sightseeing (and not for spending your time in the hostel) this hostel is OK.

The bed is very hard. Thin thin matrix on a wood board I guess. The water has to wait for a long time to get hot. And the sound - proofing was bad too. I was woke up by some two men talking on the hallway at 2:00am

Wifi poor. Rooms very small (2008) . needed to be cleaned properly. Bathroom was not very clean and smelt of urine. Only good thing was location, but everything else was very poor standard.
