The hostel is in an excellent location just a couple of minutes walk from East Nanjing Road subway exit 1. The rooms were a bit grubby but not the worst I’ve seen. The bed sheets were clean but the mattress itself was pretty stained (best to look away when putting your sheets on!) and the walls in the dorm had... More

The location is fantastic and there is a nice, open patio and clean facilities. Breakfast is a little expensive for China (35-45RMB) but just go to one of the many nearby vendors for food instead. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. There was hot water and the wifi worked but was not fast (this is what you should expect... More

It's located nearby the tourist spots .. Therefore, you don't have to travel far . However the internet connection in the room wasn't stable and strong. Some of the rooms are a bit run down and room 323 got some kind if smell . I'll suggest strongly to do a bit of renovation for the rooms . The staffs are... More

The staffs here are very good at English and also very helpful. They helped me a lot with my little Chinese skill. Furthermore, the location here is just way too perfect. You can walk to Nanjing lu in 5 minutes, this hostel's surronding is fulfilled with many restaurants and street foods as well. There is a convenient store next to... More

The hostel is just 5 minutes walk away from East Nanjing metro station. There are shopping and food right outside the hostel, really convenient! I stayed one night in a female dorm and two nights in a private room. Dorm is simple with lockable cupboards to store your stuff, there is a hairdryer at the shared bathroom. Went during the... More

Quiet room, hot shower, easy walk to subway and E Nanjing pedestrian area. Elevator to the 4th floor. Honestly we had never stayed in a hostel in our lives, but this one came highly recommended from a trusted friend, so we said what the heck. If it's really bad, we'll walk out & chalk it up to learning. BUT it... More

Good location Our only gripe was the lack of knowledge by the staff. We wanted a map and had... More

Booked 2 rooms in November for two nights. The location is quite good, being next to the popular Nanjing Walking Street. Metro (Line 2, West Nanjing Road) is about 5 minutes walking distance, and the room rate is quite cheap, since generally hotels in Shanghai is very expensive. There are plenty of restaurants next to this hostel. In the evening,... More

You would think that with the abundance of Western tourists in Shanghai and many cheap sleeping options available, Nanjing Road YH would be more customer service oriented, but you would be wrong. We arrived with another couple of friends after we booked in advance by phone a double room for us for five nights and two dorm beds for them... More

We stayed here for 5 days during National Holiday and had a fairly good experience. It was my first time staying in this hostel (I had stayed in three different hostels on previous trips to Shanghai) We had a private twin room which was fine. It was clean and comfortable but there was nowhere to hang clothes which was disappointing.... More
