    The room (private twin room) was very big and spacious, it was clean and located right near Nanjing Road and the subway and the bathroom is spacious and the toilet and shower are separated. It was one of the best hostels For the best value I’ve stayed in. Just the wifi was weak but other than that it was a great stay!

    Amazingly big private rooms - super location and great value for money. Big bed and clean room! Only things to improve on could be better/newer towels supplied in the rooms, and some hand wash supplied in the rooms!

    Location of hostel is great, close to Nanjing shopping street. Restaurant next to the hostel is nice. The toilet of standard room is quite small and has musty smell but deluxe room is large and clean.

    The staff weren’t friendly or really helpful at all. Definitely not a very welcoming place. But the room was fine and clean. And so were the bathrooms. It’s near the metro so that was nice. I probably won’t go back. There are better hostels out there.

    Generally hostel was ok. Great location, though room was a little mouldy. Location pointed on a map is wrong - we spent half an hour looking for it. Use the adress provided.

    If you are a traveller, do not use this hostel. It is used primarily by cheapskate businessmen who will get angry if you make any noise past 10pm but will ensure they wake you up at 7am by clearing their throats as loudly as possible in the ensuite sink and chatting. The rooms are filthy, I found half a dozen cobwebs and used cigarettes under my bed. The security guard uses the communal kitchen and living area to watch TV on full volume most of the day which is antisocial. WiFi is unusable.

We're in the absolute centre of Shanghai. In fact, I think we have a perfect location - we're just a few steps away from Nanjing road and two minutes' walk from the metro station. We're also situated perfectly for you to experience Shanghai's unforgettable nightlife.
Here you can enjoy our nice, cheap breakfast and beers as well as coffee and tea. We really want to make you feel like you're staying at your friend's place. We will be waiting for you with welcoming drinks and open arms! Ma Zi, Owner
