    One of the great hostels. Difficult to find, but if you see the Sinopec gas station, you are nearby. Arrived very late, put on 3rd floor, moved to 2nd floor next morning. Comfortable beds, high quality towels every day, helpful and professional staff, very well run. Meals available, breakfast omelette, very free and open atmosphere, washing machine, even dryer available! Traveled on to Beijing but I miss Rock & Wood!

    We loved staying here. The bar/outdoor area is really chilled and beautiful, and the location is great for bars, restaurants and cafes. The rooms were comfortable and clean with big lockers. Would definitely recommend if you’re staying in Shanghai!

    Beautiful setting, with great indoor and outdoor space. The hostel has a warm, welcoming touch, with lot of wood around. The gigantic trunk at lobby is itself a masterpiece. The staff is brilliant and speaks english. Location is just half way between Bund and Homquiao Airport, but very close to the nightlife. Private Room was simple but silent.

    I had a pleasant stay. Staff was very accommodating when I had to extend my stay. It was a little pricey for what you get, but it was clean and had a nice atmosphere. The location was great - convenient to many things, but not in the thick of downtown.

    Enjoyed my stay at the Rock and Wood Hostel. The staff were friendly and we were able to borrow a travel book and take it around with us for the duration of our stay. One thing that was not so good was the en-suite bathroom on the twin bedroom. The bathroom had a glass door so you could be seen in the shower or on the toilet if someone wanted to use the sink. Overall though the hostel was great and I would stay again ☺️

    Kind staff, lovely location in a somewhat residential area, flexible booking, and overall clean facilities. The common area is really chill, and plenty of people hang out there but I wish there was more of a social vibe. Shanghai can be quite an intimidating city with endless things to do, so it’d be great if the hostel had some sort of social events, gatherings, or tours. Overall, I would recommend this hostel and if I’m ever in Shanghai again, I see myself returning.

    Overall very good, clean, good value for money for Shanghai, helpful staff. Good looking common area, good looking dorm. Pity there was no atmosphere, not the best place to meet people... Probably because the common are is a bar (but it's possible to bring food from outside and eat in front of the reception, and there's a fridge). I extended and came back.

    Close to metro line 2 which is very convenient to reach the airports and the hongqiao railway station. The rooms are clean, but some don't have windows which sucks, and the sound isolation is not that great. The lobby is very relaxed with a nice choice of music, although maybe a bit too dark at night. All in all we had a very nice and comfortable stay.

    Very Good

    Positive: clean, five minutes from subway, big lockers, attractive and comfortable common area, good WiFi. I had an issue with a room (see below) and was moved with no problems. Negative: staff pretty disinterested, but my only real issue isn’t really a fault of the hostel. In the two four-bed rooms I encountered here different people staying long term, and in such a small space, with all their stuff spread out, it can feel like you’re intruding in their room.

Rock&Wood International Youth Hostel says

We're located about 10 minutes' walk from Zhongshan Park and only a minute from the local food market. I like to point out great local restaurants to our guests and I also recommend that people visit the French Concession.
I think what puts us ahead of other hostels in Shanghai is that we offer very good services, like helping guests to book tickets for the bus and train and for acrobatic performance.
We have bar on the first floor and customers who want to enjoy the sunshine can feel comfortable and peaceful in the garden. Lao Mu, Owner
