Hidden Garden International Youth Hostel
Ranked #92 of 394 Specialty Lodging in Shanghai
Reviewed July 2, 2010

We booked the 8 bed mixed dorms for 85 RMB / person, 1 room for us 8. Clean and enough space in the room, free locker, clean new white sheet & blanket for the bed, also clean bathroom. The location is about 10 minutes walk from the Pudong Avenue Metro station (line 4), also quite near to the World Expo area, just 30 RMB by taxi. The staff is very nice & HELPFUL!! (English speaking also). There's a nice glass room where we can sit relax on the couch, but the couch is quite dirty, and the magz & CDs isn't up-to-date. Plus side: they have 2 cute little dogs in there!

There's not much to write. The quality of the hostel and the location are questionable. This is by far the worst hostel I have stayed in in China. Rooms and restrooms are not clean, the common kitchen is non-existent and dirty, it's hard to find a clean glass to drink water. This is a bit cheaper than other hostels but not worth the inconvenience both in terms of cleanliness or hygiene.
There was some construction going on but no discounts or added service for all the incovenience. Most were here on business and not on leisure which was weird for a hostel.
The location is also far from areas you want to visit in Shanghai. It claims to be close to some buzzing areas in Pudong but is actually in a sleepy part of town. The area around the hostel is also not clean. This is hidden alright and there is a garden alright but it's not as amusing as the tilte "Hidden Garden" sounds when you figure out.
