We had booked 3 beds in an 8 bed dorm with shared bathroom but were upgraded on arrival to a 4 bed with ensuite. Room also had a TV, hairdryer and kettle. Staff were very helpful with good English. Location was great close to the Bund and subway. Very easy to find from the directions the hostel had emailed us.... More

We werre a group of 14 for 2 nights and loved the hostel! You can't get more central for this price. The staff was uncomplicated and helpful, rooms totally fine and clean as well as the showers/toilets. We absolutely loved the terrace for some beers before going out :)

It's an OK hostel, but NOTHING GREAT! Rather stinky room and the walls are as thin as paper. The staff knows little English and is not very helpful. The location is good. Very central and close to the metro. The guests are mixed: international and Chinese

Good location, close to the subway and the main places. Reception was moving when I arrived, so the visit was a bit quick. Helpful staff anyway. Confortable double ensuite room, with TV set, AC, and WIFI. Food and drinks are convenient, but a bit overprice. The place was quite during the week, but try not stay in the room 670... More

We stayed here for one night during my visit to China. One of the best things about this place has to be its location. It is located about 20 mts from Nanking East rd metro station which is THE street to go to experience Shanghai. It is also in. Walking distance from the bund, people's square, Nanjiing west road, clothes... More

For the price, the hostel was surprisingly accommodating. The staff were useful and the communal area was a great place to relax, a real traveler's hostel experience. The location was great and being able to wash your clothes was very helpful, had a snorer in my room the first night but that's the luck of the draw so not a... More

Conveniently close to the subway and bund, this hostel is pretty alright. Socialising is limited because the hostel, probably like most others in Shanghai, is filled up by a flock of Chinese job seekers. Ambience is dead and boring. Pool is available, but they strangely took away all balls after 10pm. No music, no activities, there's almost only a bed... More

Overall great hostel. The facilities are great with a great common area and a nice terrace outside with a pool table. The staff speaks decent English and are extremely helpful. Rooms and WC are good and cleaned frequently. Location is very good. Would definitely stay here again.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
