Very clean Good rooms (we had a delux) but it was a little dark Comfy bedded and coffee in room Small bar Didn't try food as we could see the kitchen from reception and it put us off especially the cat! 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

We stayed here for a couple of nights and wish we found it before (as we stayed in Shanghai previously). The shopping area of Nanjing Road is literally around the corner so everything you need is in walking distance. We stayed in a double room on the 4th floor. The bathroom looked brand new and the rooms were not only... More

The staff are all English speaking, very helpful and also very happy bunch! We were up on the 4th floor (Room 406) and by the lift,... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hostel and were happy. The location is really central cause it's around 100m from nanjing road and the metro station (line 2). We booked a double room with private bathroom (n 210). The room was clean and quite modern. The negative point is the noise, you can hear your neighbour and the street. Furthermore... More

I stayed at one of the double rooms on the third floor. No coomplaints as to the cleancliness, AC worked fine, bathroom was clean and well-kept. True, I had to go to the common room for the wifi connection but seriously - it's a hostel, so let's not be too picky. They will ask you for a 100Y reposit and... More
