Shanghai is one of the most visited cities in China and is a seaport on the East China Sea. It is divided into 18 suburbs, whereof nine are located in the central region (Puxi).
A couple of the places you can stay in if you are looking for a hostel in Shanghai are Huangpu, the historic center of the city and Xuhui which offers lots of hip shopping and lifestyle spots. Generally speaking, you can expect Shanghai hostels to be clean and safe with friendly staff to help you in every situation.
If arriving by plane you will probably arrive at Shanghai Pudong airport. To get to the city center, take the legendary high-speed maglev train which reaches a speed of 430 km/hour. Getting to and from your hostel in Shanghai is also no problem since the city is served by a modern and comprehensive public transport system. If you get lost and ask somebody for directions, be aware that most people will think it is impolite to tell you they do not know either. Instead, they might lead you the wrong way just to give you an answer.
While you are there, enjoy some of the numerous cultural activities such as exploring the Shanghai Museum or the Museum of Art and History, attending a performance of a classic Chinese opera, or discovering the mixture of Chinese and modern architecture. You can also go shopping on Nanjing Road, discover up-and-coming Chinese artists at Moganshan Art District and join the vibrant nightlife in the hip district Xintiandi. After all that you'll be ready for a good night's rest at your Shanghai hostel.

Hostel Captain Youth Hostel - Shanghai
"Very Poor -- staff were rude and extremely unhelpful. - The hostel at first appears nice, but do not be fooled. The staff were very rude and unhelpful. The reception often smelt of sewage, there is no toilet roll in the loos. The cleaners come in and wake you up in the mornings and do not clean anything. We stayed for four nights and the sheets were not changed once, nor were they changed for the next person. There is another hostel nearby...
HI - Shanghai Easytour - Mingtown Etour Hostel
"Lovely atmosphere, central & pretty cheap - Lovely courtyard & bar atmosphere. Comfy, large bunk beds & nice, new sheets & doonas. Clean bathrooms." … "Dirty. Well located - Really dirty place. The bunk beds room weren't bad. But the shared wc was terrible. Really dirty people over there and cleaner didn't clean at all. Showers need to be urgently modernized, new shower curtain is not so expensive. Only one sink for twelve people is...
City Central International Hostel
"City Central International Hostel is a large, institution-like hostel. The Location It is a bit far from the city centre and the most convenient way to find it is by taxi, but make sure you keep the receipt in case you get ripped off on the price of the ride, as this is quite common. There is also a subway station close by, approximately ten minutes' walk. Rooms and Bathrooms This place is a large building with many floors and...
Beehome International Youth Hostel
Pudong New Area
"Beehome International Youth Hostel is not the typical crazy backpacker hostel. Many of the guests are Chinese people who are working or doing business in the financial district. It is very quiet without drunk gap year students making noise. On the other hand, it's harder to find other Western travelers with which to hang out. All the better reason to get immersed in a local Chinese neighbourhood, and try the local foods! The Location...
Shanghai Blue Mountain Luwan Youth Hostel
"Cheap and good! - I have been in many hostels, but this one is one of the best i have stayed in. clean, big rooms, hot water, again everything is clean and new. staff is nice and ready to help, everybody speak english very good. location is also perfect -- just next to metro and no more than 10 minutes to the city center." … "Secondhand smoke, slow internet - if you don't mind slow internet and second hand smoke then it shouldn't be a...
Hostel Shanghai - People's Square YH
"Hostel Shanghai - People's Square YH, part of the Mingtown chain and affiliated with YHA China, did not impress us. Going from the reception on the ground floor to the main area of the hostel is three floors up drab stairs with unpainted hardboard walls, a few framed posters, and an equal number of empty spaces where others once hung. The rooms run off brighter, long, straight corridors but which lack any form of decoration. Smoking seems...
Le Tour Traveler's Rest Youth Hostel
"Traveler's Rest Youth Hostel is an excellent hostel. It's large and it's obviously a business, but still, it's friendly and full of character. There's plenty of space, which is a good sign that the owners are not after every last jiao. There is so much here that it should meet the needs of most types of hostelers, except perhaps smokers, as it's nonsmoking throughout. There's Wi-Fi in all the common areas, but not in all rooms -- management...
InnJoy International Youth Hostel
"InnJoy International Youth Hostel (previously called Sleeping Dragon International Hostel) is the best "old Shanghai" hostel. Its not very centrally located, there is no McDonald's nearby and it's not new. It does lend the traveler to the most authentic cultural experience one can hope for in Shanghai and it doesn't hurt that it's cheap and in a grand old house with loads of common space. Plus the staff are not only nice but actually helpful....

Shanghai Soho Youth Hostel
"Room with no windows or air conditioning - Stayed here one night and it was awful. It was a windowless room in the middle of the hostel. There was no air conditioning just a central fan that blew warm air. The bathroom was small, but tolerable. The hostel was also a bit hard to find. The location isn't bad, but don't expect too much." … "Quite good. - The carpet in our room was soggy but apart from this detail everything was great!...

Shanghai Dock Bund Hostel
"Great place - Good location, close to the subway. 170RMB for a double room in city center is hard to come by. No real hangout space so it's less like a real hostel, but that's not a big deal. The rooms are clean with a relatively soft bed. The bathrooms are big so you don't have to brush your teeth right underneath the shower head. The rooms are similar to hotel rooms without the hotel price. There is no wifi in the rooms, that's the only...

The Phoenix Hostel
"The Phoenix Hostel is well located and just refurbished; though it's of good quality, it fails to totally overcome being a hostel grafted onto a hotel, restaurant, and bar business, with just a small number of dorm beds to dozens of private rooms. At the time of the review, the there is still some refurbishment work taking place. There's a full service laundry (only), no kitchen or TV facilities, and minimal hostel and travel info; Wi-Fi is...

Shanghai Travel Tips & Suggestions
Shanghai is a very beautiful city -- I just love it. Take a river boat and go to Shanghai Tower.
Shanghai is like any big city and it feels too Western. The old city and Yuyuan Gardens is touristy but beautiful and the area across the water from the Bund is beautiful. There is not much to do here, so after three days I was ready to move on.
