The room and bathroom are to be expected as per the rate relative in shanghai for a private double room in a hostel. We arrived exhausted at about 11pm from Xian, 45 minutes later than anticipated, as we could not follow the hostels directions as per their standard confirmation email on how to get there from Peoples Square metro stop,...

Single room extremely small. The bed was uncomfortable, hard and squeaking. The cleanliness of the room very poor; the walls need to be repainted. The toilet flush was not working properly; no socket in the bathroom.

Recently renovated rooms but the bathroom has a problem with poor drainage. The smell was extremely bad! The room itself had storage space plus a kettle. Air con worked well. Bed was reasonably comfortable. WiFi just about loaded pages but you have to wait a while. Location is very good for connecting to the train station and the main areas... More

Ordered a single room and was guided to the 4th floor. It looked really nice and recently renovated up there - unfortunately the guy that guided me to my room was wrong and accidentially directed my to 4th floor - my room was situated in the second floor. Elevator dor opened and immediately I smelled a pungent stench. Also the... More

After reading the reviews on this place, my partner and I stayed in a private double room on the newly renovated 4th floor. Granted the room was a bit small like other reviews say, but for hostel standard this place was exceptional. It had hotel quality cleanliness, proper towels, simple but stylish decor, and a good comfortable bed. Plus great... More

Great location at walking distance to everything worth seeing. In case you wish to take the metro to spare some walking time, you have a metro entrance within less than 4 min walking. The staff is great, really friendly, speaks fair English and is willing to give you advice or tips on anything if you ask them. The room is... More

Hostel was great. Spacious and clean rooms. Good staff. Great location (5 main walk to peoples square!) Big tip- eat at the restaurant down stairs. Order the rice meals on the smaller menu. Double cooked pork, kung pao chicken or whatever. Is amazingly tasty and literally costs less than 3USD. zomg
