I've been in this hostel twice when I was in China. Definitely nothing went wrong. I would suggest it to all of my friends going to SH. Few metres from the subway station. Price really fair. English speaking cordial staff. :)

This is the second time I stayed at this hostel and was not disappointed. We stayed in a private two bedroom which was really big for the price we were paying. The bathroom was clean and it had good shower pressure and hot water! There are always loads of people milling around the hostel, giving it a warm atmosphere and... More

We had a great stay here- metro is not too far and easy to get a taxi outside. The area around the hostel is not that nice and there were some shady characters lurking around late at night. We stayed in a private 2 bed room which was clean, good shower/Western toilet, comfortable beds and good heating/air con but no... More

It's not located at the center, but very close to metro sta. Staffs are very nice and kind, exceptionally they are all good at English. Rooms are clean and hot water was stable. But there's no Wifi in the room. That was the only thing that I didn't like. Generally I was really satisfied with this hostel, with resonable price.... More

Pleasant stay in this hostel. Rooms we spacious with tv, aircon and private bathroom (double room) up to cheap hotel standard. The common area was big and although we were there during low season I can imagine it's a bustling place during the high season. The tram is 10 minutes walk and easy to get around the city.

This hostel is awesome! Stayed for 2 nights in November 2014 in a 3 bedroom dorm. We walked in and was greeted by the friendly staff who was in-training, so doing the necessary paperwork took abit longer but she suggested we go to the hostel bar and have a drink to wait for it to be completed. The bar vibe... More

This hostel is shocking! The pictures on hostel world etc had us fooled. If you think you're going to a clean, friendly and vibrant hostel you're wrong. We have been travelling Asia for a while and have very low standards. The rooms were filthy, there were bed bugs and the staff are rude. When we arrived after a long flight... More

This was a very nice hostel but it was quite a distance from the city center. On the bright side it was very close to the Caoyang Road metro station (Lines 3, 4 and 12). Normally we had to switch lines 2 or 3 times to get back to the hostel from the sights we had visited. Keep in mind... More

Good location, clean atmosphere, english speaking staffs, spacious rooms. Close to Metro & bus stops. Only issue was that no wifi in rooms, although available only near the lobby. Overall a nice place to stay.

Having not stayed in other hostels in Shanghai, i can't say how it compares to them but it's a fairly average hostel as hostels go. Positives: - wide, comfy bunk beds - 4 bed Dorms - lockers and safety deposit boxes - ample social space, with pool and fussball - very near metro station and some shops - clean enough... More
