    My stay at hostel world was great. A friend and I flew into Shanghai we had requested a twin room with a private bathroom and of the cost, it was definitely a very neat room. The rooms have more of a hotel vibe than a hostel vibe which was definitely a plus. The only issues in the room is the sewage system in the bathroom. The sewage smell is definitely wrong and that says a lot especially when no one was using the bathroom. But opening the window in the bathroom seemed to help.

    Overall a very enjoyable stay. Clean and well equipped. However the toilet drainage have a persistence odor and a lot of mosquito. Remember to use the provided electric mosquito repellent which is effective.

    We chose this hostel because of it's proximity to the subway station, it's located just across the road from Luban station. The locality is quiet and non-touristy with food stalls, convenience stalls and a local market in the vicinity. The hostel is clean and reasonably comfortable. You need to bring your own toiletries like shampoo, soap, toothbrush & toothpaste as well as towels. However, if you stay in private rooms, towels are provided. Staff speaks English and are helpful.

    Really great location! It’s just a few minutes away from the metro and you can get into the heart of the city quickly. The staff are super friendly and helped us with recommendations and got us a cab to get us to the airport for our wicked early flight. Overall, good place to stay!

    Pretty loud at night so bring earplugs. You also need your own lock for their big lockers in the room (big enough for whole suitcase). Hot water available all the time. Didnt interact with the staff much or hang out at the bar. Really nice that it's right across the street from the metro. I would stay again.

    This is the first hostel I went to in Shanghai. I wanted to extend if I liked it. Overall, I didn't. The good: common area looks good, it's easy to meet people, and there are quite a lot of Chinese people. The bad: the dorm didn't look good, very basic, and it didn't look clean. Not that it was dirty, more like wear and tear. It didn't help that people kept on opening the window at night, bad for air-con, and bad for noise (on the first floor, next to a busy street).

    The location is superb, seconds from a metro. The prices were hiked when we were there due to Labour Day weekend, which website didn't inform us of so we had a pay dispute which has been settled. Dorms are functional but a bit worn, ditto the bathrooms. The staff were OK, not massively enthusiastic. Wifi was excellent. The common room has a bit of atmosphere but not super socialable. Overall the location overrides any of these complaints though.

    Found the place a bit seady, only the rooms and dorms on the street side have windows, all of the other rooms & dorms (the majority) have no windows and are pitch black inside.

    - was fine good beds, price and toilet facilities - I was having a Chinese lesson online and the staff came in and tuned on a movie without even asking me. It wasn’t a huge deal but I thought it was a bit rude - also no food available to order
