Excellent stay in this hostel: charming, the cleanest place we've done in China, great services and staff. Its location is perfect: among the hutongs, we felt immersed in a more traditional China, lively in the day but calm at night. Just great!
Excellent! We enjoyed our stay there so much that it's our favorite! Just because we know that suggestions are the best to improve, willwe say that the shower water tends to leak onto the whole bathroom floor (toilets' included), and that the Xi'an terracotta army tour proposed here needs to be revised: the guide makes you buy more than asked and is not clear. Otherwise: perfect staff in their attention, perfect surroundings, for a really nice bargain.
For the money we paid,our stay was nice enough in Shanghai. The minus: no car or van pick-up service from and to the airport, the banging of doors after 11pm (their closing is really noisy - and startling), the toilets are not cleaned often enough in the day/night (it follows the Chinese standards, not the Western ones). The plusses: really friendly staff there to help out, good-humored atmosphere, an adorable garden, and a nice, nice price.
