Good -- great location and nice people; Bad -- air-con is broken
Air-con in room 203 is broken, no hot water in the afternoon and midnight.

Clean, safe, small -- everything we needed
Central location -- maximum 10 minutes walk to the Bund and the the closest metro station. Clean, but small rooms. English toilets, separated showers with hot water. Good value for money. You can have cheap breakfast from one of the small 'restaurants' in the street.

Good location, clean rooms, rowdy bar
Good solid hostel. Rooms are clean, staff are very helpful and friendly, and there is a great bar on the ground floor to mix it up with the other backpackers (although I think people spend entirely too much time there). It's about a fifteen-minute walk to the east nanjing metro stop, and plenty to stuff to see and do nearby. Best of all its air conditioned, and a great resting point during the midday Shanghai heat.

Really nice place
Near a metro stop and centrally located. Free Internet, staff are helpful and most speak good English, the kitchen is just a microwave and fridge though.

Beware!
This hotel cannot cope with the amount of people, there are constant queues at reception and very bemused staff. Very disappointed when we booked two beds four days in advance (through our hostel in Beijing and paid 20 yuan deposit) and get there and after arriving there at at 8 a.m. find bemused staff saying no beds for us come back at 12. Came back and still no beds and no apology! Had to stay in a double room (paying three times the price) hoping that they can fit us into a dorm the next morning. Next day, after promising a dorm room, staff still had no idea and had not reserved a room for us. No communication! Also restaurant food -- terrible. After reading the good reviews on this website i expected a lot more -- was very disappointed. I have also stayed in many hostels around the world -- this is no way one of the best.

  Very good hostel. Staff very friendly, rooms and bathrooms clean, free internet, very well located (close to the Bund and not far from People's Square). Definitely one of the best hostels i've been in in the world and the best in China.

  One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in many. Free internet (that actually works), free laundry, great location fabulous common area, great people, awesome television with stocked dvd collection. There's only hot water from 7-12am and 7-12pm, but unlike a lot of hostels, the water actually gets hot. I know many people who've left other Shanghai hostels to come here, and with good reason.

  absoloutly loved this place, and loving it more the more places we stay. has such a great atmosphere, you can walk out the door straight to the high street and to the bund. really easy to find, and close to the metro. great security, you locks on the door and lockers!!! the showers are clean, hot water is not 24hours, 7-12am and pm. but when its hot its hot probably a lot more quite now that we've left wouldnt recoment the ensuite 6 bed rooms as (and may have just been the people in the room) but they kinda smell of damp, in that "youve just found a swimming costume in a bag that you lost three years ago kind of way". the rooms with the windows were clean and great though. we miss you hikers
