    Stay here. The staff is amazing. If you are a ten minute walk from a subway you are always in a good location. Free laundry and soap. Big lockers in room.

    A bit of a walk from the station, especially in the heat. Really cool atmosphere though!

    I booked this hostel because it offer mixed dorms. When I arrived there, they had only female or male dorms. They asked us if we want to stay in a dorm where like more than 12 people sleep, including the staff. At the end we chose a private room. They cancel my old booking and told me I´ m going to get my deposit back. That never happened, you cannot get the deposit back. Besides that, we stayed there 4 nights and it was pretty confortable.

    My mum and I stayed here for two nights - after arriving later than expected (the hostel is a nightmare to find, and far from any subway stops), we were told there were no private rooms available (even though we had booked) and were shown to a bunk room, which smelt of mould. We were offered the room free of charge, and stayed in a private room the following night. In spite of the mistake, the staff were friendly and apologetic. Nice atmosphere, and mum enjoyed their coffee!

    I have actually stayed here twice now, so it's certainly not bad, but I probably wouldn't stay here again for the purpose of actually visiting Shanghai. The location is quite terrible for that purpose. It's also not super clean or modern. The common areas have a pretty cool atmosphere, and the staff is friendly so I don't want to roast them too hard. I don't exactly recommend this place, but you could do worse.

    Although the hostel is a youth hostel situated in Shanghai, the staff is not able to speak in English and communicate properly and also very arrogant: this created a lot of inconvenients (for example they wanted us to pay for an extra night for no reason). food and beverage inside the hostel were expensive, moreover they didn’t even have hot tea. the room was fine, but it wasn’t cleaned during the 5 days of staying: we had to ask everyday to clean at least the garbage bins. It was really a pity.

    Dirty, mould on all the walls. Only one staff member speaks English contrary to the website. Booked a mixed dorm but were informed no sub facility existed. Bad atmosphere. Very antisocial, very little food offered - cannot be a back out or evening in option
