“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

I stayed here during a promotional sale and only paid $17 per night for two people. First, the photos DO match the hotel (I read an earlier review that said otherwise). FX is clean, had an amazingly helpful staff, great rooms and fast internet. I really can't think of any reason not to stay here other than the 10-15 minute walk to the nearest metro. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for basic but good quality accommodation.

It was a very nice hotel for china. It made our trip to Shanghai easier. The staff is nice but they are not professionals, so do not expect the usual treat of a hotel, they will most likely improvise, they will try to help you. Hope your chinese is good because their english is not very understandable.
the map on the web is not right, do not even bother to look at it, and it is a bit far from the MRT station it is so much easier to take a taxi from there, maybe 15RMB. I recommend walking to the station on day light but going back by taxi, the way be a bit dark.
The web information it said that it included breakfast and that they have laundry service, but actually they don't. They can include breakfast but it is extra.
The hotel is nice, but it looks like they had some water problems so the wooden floor is uneven, bumby and some part are broken.
in general it was ok.

We took a bit of a gamble with this hostel as most reviews were written in Chinese. It was better than expected for the money. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff don't speak hardly any English though so not very helpful with directions or advice. We asked how much laundry was which was a hassle because they couldn't understand us so they had to call someone and we tried to explain over the phone. In the end it cost an absolute fortune so I wouldn't recommend it. The only English channel of TV was China News channel and the location is not ideal but only 10 mins walk from the metro. Overall for the price of the room we were happy.

If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay without any frills... this is the place. We had a very comfortable stay here and the staff is courteous and helpful. The language problems exists but that is everywhere in China so be ready to use sign language to explain what you want but once they understand they are prompt and eager to please.

Also serves a decent breakfast.
