We were here for 2 nights in a mixed dorm. The location is awesome. You are right near the metro and walking distances from a lot of tourist attractions. The room was bigger than we thought and the bathroom was attached. Both bathroom and room were clean. We were on the 5th floor and the cleaners seemed to only clean... More

This hostel has a very friendly atmosphere, where it's really easy to meet fellow travelers. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location is fantastic. The actual dorm rooms are very clean but nothing special, and feel a little crowded. But hey, this is Shanghai! I've stayed here twice already, and I'll probably stay again.

I was there for 3 nights. It was in the in the best location very close to metro station and Nanjing rd. which is very convenience. The staff barely speaks english. I got a twin private room with a bathroom the room itself was not so clean but the bedding is nice enough.

Good hostel but too many beds in the rooms. Id pay more for more space. Dont get me wrong, i still rate it as very good with top unbeatable location. I also ate food here in the restaurant. Does the job.

I've been in this hostel in February 2015 for 3 nights. The dormitory is cheap for the price of Shanghai and the hostel position is perfect, in the city center, near Nanjing Road and the metro station. The hostel is quite clean, both rooms and bathrooms. There is not so much shared bathrooms and they aren't very nice but small.... More

You could stay here just for the location itself, you can't beat it. In addition, the staff was helpful and kind (helped us arrange a hostel on mt. Huangshan by phone) and kept our luggage for that trip, although for a small amount of money which I thought in the end we could've gotten for free since we were staying... More

The location of this hostel is absolutely incredible, only around the corner from East Nanjing Rd Station (lines 2 & 10), meaning you're walking distance to East Nanjing rd, the bund, people's square, the old town and yuyuan gardens and bazaar. However, there were a couple of things that put me off the hostel. There were very loud rats (or... More

Excellent location just off Nanjing Road, also within walking distance to subways. Rooms were clean but bathrooms were filthy in the evening. Would have been nice for a more livelier social area in the front room, but not many people hanging out in the social rooms but rather bedrooms. Absolutely fine for one night!

The security guard was so good to us. He gave us a local Insect repellent which worked wonders ! The hostel itself was very clean. It had a simple yet Modern decor. The staff were accomodating. The location was great and not too far from the city centre and sights. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I stayed in this hostel 6 nights. When I arrived early on morning after a night train, i had the worse welcoming ever in a hostel or in any other place. The guy named "Steeve" said me he couldn't be polite as it was too early morning!!? What? I work in hotel business industry and trust me, I would say... More
