Compared to the Mingtown Hostel in Hangzhou, this one is not much different. However, I disagree that the staff was great. They were average compared to the other hostels from Mingtown. They did not exceed my expectations. 1. For example: on arrival the girl behind the reception desk was "busy" and asked us to checkin later. Even though there were... More

The location is amazing! Just a five minute walk to the bund, train station, and East Nanjing Road. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The private room that I stayed in was quiet, spacious, and comfortable. The only complaint about the room would be that the walls were a very dirty and that hot water was not available... More

Air-conditioners don't work, internet doesn't work, beds are uncomfortable, springs in your back, no supports, not chinese beds. The only thing good about this place is the location and the bar area downstairs (overpriced, but there's a liquor store next door and a grocery store). The staff is ok, they try to help. No refunds. If you're a "normal" tourist... More

stay in this hotel for one night, big room space with day light. Value for money, allow early check in at 8am as we went during low season. No lift since it is an old building. Location ok , around 5 to 10 minutes walk to nearby places of interest such as the Bund and shopping streets

Great location near the Bund and East Nanjing Road, a short and flat walk from the metro. The common area was great for the warm Shanghai evenings! Rooms were a small and bathrooms were dark but when you're spending most of your day outside they don't need to be great. The staff were lovely and helpful, and spoke good English.... More

So rather than hours trawling through online options , reviews etc, we booked this hostel off an advertising card. Positives - It takes foreigners (I have lost count of how many hotels I booked even using Chinese websites that then declined the booking when we rang through. Secondly it is located well - close to the Bund (we walked there... More

This is a large hostel located within walking distance of The Bund in Shanghai. It is ideally located for those who want to spend their time walking along the river admiring the architecture and skyline of Shanghai. It is a very large hostel with helpful reception staff and a good restaurant downstairs. We stayed in a double room with shared... More

The hostel was excellent value for money, in a great location and large. Security was good as you needed a key to get up to the dorms and then into the rooms themselves. Each bunk had a light, a shelf and a locker. Only bad points were the toilets that were continuously flooded (as people kept flushing the loo roll)... More

Stayed 3 nights in a double room. Although a bit pricey, we were pleasantly surprised with one of the best room conditions we had during our trip to China: spacious room, nicely decorated, very clean, new bathroom. Location is also great, 5 min walk from the Bund and Nanjing street. Staff is ok, but not the friendliest I've seen. The... More
