The room & common spaces were super dirty! We entered into the room and they had left some wet dirty towels as well! Floors had a lot of bugs and our window had a trash bean view & smell! Generally, the hygiene of this hostel reached the very worst we had seen in China! Staff was friendly but it wasn't... More

Stayed for one night when we stayed in Shanghai. The hostel is well located near the bund. The price is ok and one of the less expensive places near the bund. Our room ( 2 person private room ) was clean and had a soft bed. Wifi in the rooms Thin walls so you hear everything in the hallway.

Nice central location, cleanliness and service slightly sub par, less foreigners than hostels in other countries creates its own unique atmosphere. Not as nice as the rating suggested when I booked but I keep my expectations low as you should.

Stay here last winter... the location quite good, around 10 min by walk to Subway Station and near with the bund. Hostel are a bit small and the lift is only until 3rd floor. So to go to my room at 4th floor, need to take stairs for 1 level. Room are clean and staff also fluent in english

The hostel is in a great location, very close to the Bund and Nanjing Road and the station. The staff were helpful and friendly.The reception area is very small and definitely needs to be bigger. There is also only 1 lift which takes you to 1 floor. Unlike other hostels that I have stayed in, there is not really a... 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.
