My husband and I stayed here for 3 days during a brief trip to Shanghai.
The hostel is in a fantastic location which is about a 5 mintue walk to the bund. It is also reasonably close to Nanjing road (for shopping and food) and the Nanjing Road Metro Station.
There are a range of facilities on offer. There is a washing machine for 5 yuan but no dryers. There are clothes horse on level 4 to dry your clothes. There is internet but in my opinion quite expensive compared with other internet cafes.
There are 5 showers (for each gender) in the entire complex. There will probably be a small wait at busy times. The showers have good pressure and good heat. There is a bar serving food until late with a great view of the city skyline.
The rooms are large for a hostel, there are 9 bunk beds in each room but it does not feel cramped at all. The rooms are clean and the sheets changed everyday. The decor is new and tasteful. The rooms are secure and each bunk has a good locker which can easily fit a large rucksack as well as a small backpack.
The staff are indifferent in my opinion - not nasty or anything but not friendly either. They speak English though.
I would definately come here again for stay in Shanghai.
