Cheap place and you get what you pay for. Location is good, very close to The Bund. Staff was nice and helpful. And we could do our own laudry at the place wich was great. Our room was a bit cold, as the window was leaking. The elevator a bit small, and the corridor a bit smelly sometimes. Otherwise it... More

This hostel is a really good for the price. Non-smooking dorm-rooms, and with a common room to meet other backpackers. The location is very good. Close to the bund, and the Nanjing East Street. If you go during autumn/winter, the rooms might be a bit cold though. I was quite cold in the dorm room in late november.

The hostel was inexpensive and close to the metro and the bund. It was a little hard to find as it was in an alley of sorts. The bathroom was nice. And the in-room heating was nice as it was cold the day we arrived. The bed was extremely hard and the staff were not always friendly.

The hostel is easy to geto to from the underground.It is in a noisy street, but very lively especially at night, with street vendors selling interesting food. Staff speak English, and the room was comfortable but simple.

Spent a night in Shanghai and needed fairly central accomodation as needed to get up early and get Subway to Pudong the following morning. ..10 minutes walk from East Nanjing Road subway station. Don't expect much thrills and spills from this hotel.... it is a budget hotel for the non-fussy traveller!! The reception area is tiny... but don't let that... More

Location and price are awesome! 5 min walk to The Bund in one direction and 8 min walk to East Nanjing Road Metro Station in other direction. I stayed in 10-bed dorm, which was basic (bunk beds and lockers)-but the dorms with less beds had private toilet and shower, and enough room for everyone and their luggage. Washers and dryers...

The Dock Bund is a no frills hostel. Excellent location next to "The Bund" for those awesome evening walks (or morning runs!) and Shanghai famous shopping district. I had a wonderful clean room, great wifi and the staff Dana and Jessica(although busy at times helping other people!) were very helpful with my first time in Shanghai... Great value for the... More

We slept here for 8 nights in a 10-bed dorm room. It was okay. The hostel was really nice. It's near 2 metro stations. East Nanjing Road (line 2 and line 10) and Tiantong Road (line 10). When I wasn't going somewhere in line 2, I preferred going to the Tiantong Road Station because it's less crowded and the road... More

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!
