Aside from the fact that it is a bit pricy for a youth hostel (265 RMB for a double room with shared bathroom), the place is great. The setup is fantastic with great decor. The room was very clean and had everything necessary. Weary of...More
stayed here for a few nights. A great location for a brief trip to Shanghai as it's so central, however do not stay if you're allergic to cats as there are 2 hostel cats which are always lurking around and stinking up the place -...More
Good choice overall. i got a private room on the 2nd floor. Given the price (250Y), it was surprisingly large and came with an arm chair, TV, towels and reading desk. The common areas were nicely furnished and designed. It was a bit noisy from...More
We picked this hostel because it was highly recommended by a friend who had lived there for two months. It absolutely exceeded our expectations. The location is awesome (right next to People's Square Park and the metro stop), the staff is extremely helpful and nice...More
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and
work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.

I'm sorry, I lived there for seven months, and somehow I don't remember whether it's 11:00pm or 1:00am, but it's somewhere in that window. After hours, there's a security guard who sleeps at the desk (always one of several males), but he doesn't speak English, and the hostel staff have told me that one of the night guards (if not more than one of them) doesn't even speak particularly proper Mandarin. You can come and go at the hostel at any hour, as the guard is always there to let you in, but check-in is computerized and involves registering your passport data with the local police, so you'd want to arrive on at least that first night prior to the evening hours. Try calling them to ask what to do about late-night arrivals; most of the front desk staff speak reasonably good English. Good luck!
