“China DIY – Great (really) location but nothing much else to crow about.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

I stayed in both the standard double room and the single room. Both are very small and I found the single room to be better valued than the standard twin-sharing room. The shower-room in the single is a work of art in space management. I was there during the Shanghai Expo and as such, the price was on the high side. This is a budget hotel so don’t overpay to stay there. Breakfast was included but you would not miss much if you choose to skip it. The breakfast area could get very crowded and chaotic also.

The saving grace and the best aspect of this hotel is its location, almost next to the Da Shi Jie metro station (Line 8, Dark Blue). It is four stops from the Shanghai Train Station (including one transfer) and about 30 minutes from the Shanghai South Train Station. I also took the metro (not the magnetic train) to Shanghai Pudong Airport. The whole journey was about 90 minutes. It is a fairly straight forward trip and it is one of the cheaper ways to get there. The station is also within a few stops of the other major metro lines so it is very quick to transfer to them. Nearby, there are many diners around and they open till very late.

Room Tip: Check out the single room if you are on a tight budget.

I am sure if there is one thing I will be remembered for is my recommendation of this hotel for budget-conscious single travellers in Shanghai. Location is perfect and if you buy their VIP card (for 30RMB or less than U$5) a single room with no windows cost all of 100RMB (or U$15) a night. Hotel is very close to People Square, Hua Huai Road etc...There is even free internet and a good AC system in the room. It is not recommended for fussy people, but the value for money cannot be beat! I stay there every time I go to Shanghai (exit Middle Jinling Road on Dashjie station - Line 8), and still cannot believe I pay 100RMB a night to stay in a wonderful location in Shanghai. Double Rooms begin at 208RMB, and are still very good value for money, but nothing like paying 100RMB a night. Oh, and don't even bother about breakfast, even though it is served it is not really fit for human consumption (and I really like street Chinese food in general).
