So the I was in needed a deep cleaning and some repair work, BUT friendly the staff and great atmosphere made up for it! It's a great place to hang out with friends, play pool, and drink a little. And a resident feline to entertain!

Not on the Bund, but easily in walking distance to it and to YuYuan Gardens (about a block from the latter). Staff helped us get train tickets to Hongzhou for a day trip. Beds were fairly comfortable. blow dryer available for use. kittens in the lobby are very sweet. a/c worked well. plenty of hot water in the shower. Quiet... More

I arrived there last night early Oct. during the China consecutive holiday and found out the room was full even though I successfully booked one dorm room. The staff there was very responsible and acted very quickly for trying their best to find other hotel near there for me to stay a night. And they ended up giveing me a... More

The staff here were really nice and helpful. They helped us book a train journey which we really appreciated. Our double room was compact, clean and well equipped, and the hostel was in a great area near the Old Town (make sure to explore the Yuyuan Gardens). We liked the local street food and nice feel of the area. The... More

I totally liked the hostel. My double ensuite room had new and impeccably clean bed linens; the air-con heated the room sufficiently (November can be chilly); bathroom facilities were new, and there were large towels and various toiletries as freebies. The common area downstairs is cozy and packed with guests well into the night, but the merriment does not carry... More

The hostel is located quite far from the subway station. We recommend to go to the Yuyuan Garden Metro Station (line 10) and then take bus no. 66 (the hostel is on the third bus stop, you have to go back to the crossroads). The service is really international and you can find in the interior that this place is... More

This hostel is the excellent place to stay for young people, where you can have fun, find friends, relax on the sofas in front of TV or play to pool. It was a pity that just on the last day we realized how close the hostel is to the city center (to the Bund). It takes about 15-20 minutes walk... More

I am not sure if I can find this place on my own given that the signage is all in Chinese. Good thing I was with a local. The sight outside the hostel I must say is not very pretty nor tidy nor clean. The hostel has alot of character which makes it interesting. It is surely not boring. They... More
