We stayed here for 5 days during National Holiday and had a fairly good experience. It was my first time staying in this hostel (I had stayed in three different hostels on previous trips to Shanghai) We had a private twin room which was fine. It was clean and comfortable but there was nowhere to hang clothes which was disappointing. The location was excellent but unfortunately the metro station at East Nanjing was closed after 4pm when we were there and nobody at the hostel notified us of this (although they did know about it) which was fairly inconvenient when we first arrived. The only real problem we encountered was with our reservation. We had booked our room using hostelworld about a month in advance and had called them to change the date of our reservation but when we arrived we were told that due to a problem with their online reservation system our room had been double booked. They told us to stay in our twin room for the first night and that we would possibly have to move to a dorm the following day. After a lengthy, slightly heated, discussion with the manager we got our twin room for our entire stay. The manager was neither friendly nor apologetic for this error and was rather dismissive of us for the remainder of our stay. Overall it was a fairly enjoyable place to stay and I would stay there again but of the hostels I have stayed in in shanghai it is not my favourite.
