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

Located poor, at least 15 minutes walk to nearest station. Room had no window, smelt fishy but ok after I turned on air conditioner. Thin pillows and mattress. 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.

it was clean and very well placed a few minutes walk from the Bund and from Nanjing pedestrian road. If you're looking for a cheap, clean place in a convenient location- this one fits the description (it's on Xianggang rd, not on Hongkong rd). Internet a bit slow and the staff lack a lot in term of services, but at... More

(1) The reception girl is pretty "cool" - she never smiles, never says even a single extra word. (2) Room is not cleaned (family room). (3) Wifi is slow, and the configuration is pretty complicated. (4) The floor in toilet is very wet. 前台那位姐姐,我想要么我欠了她20万,要么她这个月的大姨妈太过猛烈,要么我长的太不像洋人,那脸叫一个臭啊。姐姐 我试过了,笑一下或者多说个你好真的不会死哦!全世界也住个不少低端酒店或者青年旅舍,无一例外都是被很友善的staff服务,上海这家是我见过最“冷”的。但是前台那位姐姐对洋人的态度却温暖很多啊,满脸菊花绽放啊。。。

A very average hostel. Good location for the bund and east Nanjing road. Staff are ok, but will not go out of there way to help you. Room was not bad, quite clean, but smelt of smoke. Hard to write more here, but overall not a bad place. Make sure you take the trippy underwater train to the other side... More
