We stayed here over Christmas but there was very little festive atmosphere! The hostel didn't provide any kind of activities so the place lacked life. Staff were friendly enough but weren't very eager to help us or recommend anything.
We stayed in the luxury room which was very nice and good value. We had a huge four poster bed, flat screen tv, couch and a bath tub. Only problem was that the water was no where near hot enough to use it and it was always very cold when you were in the shower. Our shower flooded everywhere when we used it which was a nightmare to clean up! Also, they turn the hot water off between 12-5pm and during the night.
Really good location though- 5 minutes from the Bund and the main shopping street.
They have a microwave so you can cook some food (which I would highly recommend over eating at the bar!)
A good place to stay in the city centre for a decent price. Just don't expect very friendly staff or a hot shower!
