I stayed in a private en-suite room for 2 weeks in this hostel. The room was booked at a discount rate which was slightly cheaper than other chain budget hotel here in Shanghai. The location is nice, with metro line 3,4 and 11. There's a modern shopping mall nearby, post office, restaurants, and convenient stores. The neighbourhood is decent and... More

We stayed here last weekend for just one night. As other reviewers have mentioned, the rooms are a very good size (our family stayed in a double and a triple - both spacious). Rooms are clean and beds have clean white bed linen, and clean white towels provided for the bathroom. Little extras were included, like toothbrush/paste and disposable slippers.... More

Stayed 4 nights here over New Year's. We were very happy with the room (double ensuite). It was clean, spacious, had TV and wifi, nice bathroom, heater worked well, and a big window to let in light. That was about it though, the hostel does not offer much extra. We specifically booked a hostel over New Year's to talk to... More

For the price we paid we had expected a much smaller room. We stayed in a double room on the 4th floor and were very content with the room, the bathroom (seperate shower which you don't find everywhere in China) and the beds. We did some DIY laundry which means using one of the washing machines for RMB 20 (incl... More

The rooms were fine, basic but everything you need, and clean. There was some noise in our room because the window didn't shut properly, but apart from that the hostel was quiet. We organised an airport transfer with the hostel as our flight landed in the very early morning. There was a slight panic when they weren't there to meet... More

It's very near metro station (you can get there by 3 lines), not exactly city centre, but the location is still good - at least you don't have to walk much if you travel with a big luggage as I did. And they have an elevator, which was great too. Stuff is very friendly and they know English well, so... More

This place is a reasonable place to stay. It's clean and tidy, with a bar that does decent western and chinese food at not-too-expensive prices. It's close to the Caoyang St metro station (about a 5 minute walk). There is wifi, although I had issues connecting while I was there. Others didn't, but they did say it was VERY slow.... More

In short: extremly unreliable, rude and untrustworthy managment and dirty rooms. We booked this hostel more then two months before we arrived. We booked twin room with a breakfast. When we arrived there they told us that 15 days before our arrival they changed policy so they don't include breakfast in the price of the room anymore. We were very... More
