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 very poor. Breakfast and food at bar not very good. More variety please. Dirty glasses and cups. No towels. Only good thing, very well located. five minutes to subway station.

Very clean and enjoyable ambience

I stayed at this hostel two months ago and it was a very nice place. The staff are friendly and helpful, structure inside the hostel is unique with traditional and modern elements, and the washing facilities allow for privacy and comfort. The location is on a small residential street which adds to the flavor however it is a little difficult to find the hostel itself. Look for the "Hostel" triangle sign which right outside. Once you find it you will not be disappointed. There are many special places to see nearby such as People's Square and Nanjing Road. I also suggest the small bakery just up the road. I hope to come back next summer!

One of the best hostels we have been to in China

One of the best hostels we have been to in China. everything is new and nicely decorated (Ikea). There is a nice courtyard to seat in. Room are cleaned daily and towels are changed. Most of the rooms are close to a community center, which could be a little noisy during the day (music, singing, basketball). The main reason we give only 4 stars and not 5 is the food. Not a big selection, and what they have is not very good.

This hostel is great. It's very clean and everything is new. The staff are very helpful when you ask them questions. The best part is that all the toilets and showers are one per small room (no huge rooms with lots of showers together), which gives a sense of privacy unlike other hostels. It is tough to find but with a map of Shanghai it's not too difficult. The location on a small residential street adds to the charm and peacefulness. I loved it.

This place has now been refurbished and is very much open for business. I stayed here in April 2007. A very good choice this hostel. Everything is brand new. The location is fantastic, literally two or three minutes walk from People's Square. Rooms have electronic smart card entry. There's a fantastic bar that serves good and cheap food and drink. The bar area also has free wi-fi which is a real plus for those carrying a laptop. However, the wi-fi goes down intermittently yet it doesn't occur to the staff to reset the wireless router, so it's up to savvy customers to find the router and switch it on and off themselves! Also, they really need to publish some location maps for this place. I couldn't find this place when I arrived at People's Square. I phoned the hostel twice, but all they did was keep repeating the address rather than giving me directions! Not much help if you're lost in a strange city! I would have given this place five stars but the lack of initiative in customer service by the staff means they lose one star.

Amazing location and cool hang out area/bar. Clean rooms and facilities. Only complaints are the wifi didn't work very well in the room (but downstairs connection was good) and hot water stops working after a certain time. Other than that, everything was great.

Liked: Free filtered water. Didn't like: This hostel leaves a lot to be desire for, the bathroom could be a lot cleaner. Bathrooms are cold in the winter. The temperature in the dormitory rooms are not consistent, but beds are fine.

Liked: Terrific location. It's a really nice hostel with a cosy bar area, and they're currently renovating to improve it even more. I've stayed in a few hostels in Shanghai and this is definitely one of the better ones. I'd stay there again. Didn't like: The staff come in and turn the heaters on in the evening and they take the remote controls with them so you can't turn them off or down during the night. It was too hot. Otherwise, it ticked all the boxes for a decent and cheap place to stay.

Liked: The location is very convenient. A couple minutes walk from People's Square MRT station and in the shadow of Tomorrow Square and nanjing street. Didn't like: The staff were very lazy and seemed bothered to help others. Never smiled and just gave off a bad attitude. When I checked out there was no one at the front desk except for an IT worker. He called the front desk staff who were all having lunch and asked her to come check me out. She complained that she was eating and how annoying it was to leave her lunch. (I could understand both of the Chinese speakers) At 8am every morning there was construction 2-3 meters from our dorm room. They would start using hammers, drill and screaming at each other while the entire dorm tried to sleep. The internet went out on the last day of my visit. I would not recommend staying at this hostel, despite the other good reviews that lead me to book.
