“Dont make this your first choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

The staff are friendly, but they are bad english speakers. For us, this resulted into getting wrong information more than one time. I guess they try, but they might just not get you and say something completely different.

The rooms are smelly (at least in the first floor). It is a basement, and it smells like a bad one. The AC was supercold, with no possibility of making a comfortable temperature.

Bathrooms are not to clean... But not very bad either.

The location is pretty good. There is a metro station 3-5 mins away. There is a nightmarket nearby, and several supermarkets (ie 7/11).

The cafe is nice. Cosy. Food is good. But the slush/yougurtslush consist only of ice. DO not have one. Coffee is good.

Look for other alternatives before picking this hostel. There is several good ones in Shanghai.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2009

Despite being in a rather quiet part of town, this hostel has so much character! I was pleasantly surprised by the detail put into the interiors.

I was travelling alone and stayed in a small room with private baths. The room and bath is very clean, even though pretty small. the bedrooms are quite no-frills but the interior of the hostel is extremely cozy.

Only 5min walk from the purple metro line, but you probably need to change trains to get to more popular places such as nanjing road. But taxis are relatively cheap and easy to get so it is no problem.
