Super location as it's within easy walking distance from the Bund as well as East Nanjing Subway Station. Rooms were basic but comforatable, lockers are a plus! Besides a computer area, no bar and doesn't have the communal feel of other hostels. Nevertheless, really cheap and would recommend!

Though it's difficult to find, this hostel is very well located and really very cheap (especially for such a good location!). Its stuff is friendly and helpful, but they don't accept credit cards. It's just correct for its price.

The room was tiny, walls bad painted and with humidities, the bathroom was ok. In the morning is impossible to sleep because the noise outside the room caused for all guests and service (walls seem are made of paper!). Anyway good price and good location!

This hotel is located close to the Bund and about a 10 min walk from the East Nanjing Subway stop. The lobby is very small – basically just a small desk right next to the elevators so it’s nothing grand. We found our room to be fine though. We had 2 single beds, a nightstand, a table with a chair,... More

After over a month in china, this is the first hostel we DO NOT recommend. Although the facilities were ok, From the checkin, the staff wasn't very helpful and friendly. We ended up having a dissapointing experience with them that led to us leaving the hostel earlier then expected and moving to a different one. We ordered tickets for the... More

My room was not cleaned in the four days, I even had to empty my own trash. Housekeepers occupied with watching TV on their mobiles. Room came with strong steady wifi, hair... More

Nothing very good or bad to say about place, we stayed at private room, ok for 1,2 nights if you need just a place to crash. Place is close to bund and reasonable close to subway. Room was dark and not very fresh. Staff were helpfull

If you are in the same situation as me and my girlfriend this is abseloutely reccomended. This hostel is palced 2 minuttes away from the Bund - and all the main shopping areas in downtown Shanghai - and the price is very good. However, it is not very clean and not in the best condition. We only used the room... More

Location from the Bund and Nanjing Road was perfect. Both very close. The wifi is a bit complicated to get onto, but it was free. The staff was helpful when we needed them. The only thing I did not appreciate, as a travelling family, was the card put under our door for an escort service.
