Nice hostel. The dorm, although small, had nice, big lockers. Each bed had an outlet, light, and little shelf. The bathrooms were a bit open and it got noisy at night, but other than that I would recommend it! More

AWESOME HOSTEL! It's only 5-8mins walk to the nearest subway and 15mins walk to the Bund and it's a perfect place to mingle with international guests. The toilets were clean & the showers had good hot water. Dorms were reasonably sized & individual lockers was provided inside each dorm. 2 More

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. More

It was inconvenient that Wi-Fi is only available on the first floor. Also, the water-pressure was not that strong on the fifth floor. More

The staff was really nice and helpful. the smell on the floor was really akward. the beds were clean, but our private bathroom was dirty and old. there were many backpackers, including loud skype conversation at night on the floor. the location is really nice and central More

Location is premium and they have a nice bar/restaurant in the premises. It maybe lacks a commune room but that's about it. The cats who live in the house are amazing by the way. Extra point for them! More

The hot water was inconsistent which was pretty frustrating In the middle of winter. The wifi was abysmal and only worked in the bar or foyer, not in our room which was on the first floor. I felt like their only interest was money which was reflected in their service. Will not return or More

I have stayed at this hostel once before. I chose it again for the convenient location and price. The showers were horrible and the hot water stopped working altogether and the beds we the equivalent of a blanket on cement. I can't recommend this place in the future. More
