Great location, helpful staff and recently updated rooms. We stayed during in-house renovations, which meant a bit of noise - but no major complaints. South Yunnan Road, on which the hostel is situated, is a local foodie mecca - some of the best-value eats in town, especially from the duck and dumpling place on the corner. Close to the subway and People's Square, the cultural and administrative centre, and walking distance to the Bund. There's also a restaurant and bar attached to the hostel.
This is a good hostel. Great location! Very conveniently located by the MRT and people square. The roof terrace is great to hang out and meet people. They are undergoing renovation now, but as soon as they are done this is going to be a great backpacker hostel. Staff is nice. Wifi on every floor. New bathrooms and showers are more convenient than most hostels.
