Liked: Awesome hostel. Great atmosphere and great bar. Staff are very helpful with booking activities and equally so if you want to do things on your own. Fantastic whether you're on your own or with a big group.

Disliked: A bit of a party hostel (especially on weekends) so not somewhere for those who want to a quiet relaxing break!

Liked: Great bar and common rooms; friendly staff; very cheap prices. The food served was excellent, if a little overpriced. Overall a great place to stay.

Disliked: The bed's were very hard due to a very thin mattress. Also, as a non smoker the bar area could be quite uncomfortable due to everybody smoking.

Liked: Location.

Disliked: There was an extensive amount black mold in the bathroom around the top of the sink, the base of the sink, toilet and to a lesser extent around the edges of the floor where it meets the wall. Given the design of the shower in the bathroom, where basically everything gets wet, it is not a surprise there is such a huge amount of mold. Cleaning procedures should be changed so that all affected areas are scrubbed weekly with a bleach solution, or more often if the mold grows fast. This should be given a top priority as mold has been proven to be a major health hazard.

Liked: We really enjoyed staying here! It was a great warm place for us to hang out in Beijing for a few days. Most notable things was that they clean your bathrooms everyday and give you fresh towels and toilet paper. The staff are extremely friendly and as someone who has spent a lot of time in China, found that they could answer all my questions and requests about the local area. I was recommended this hotel, and I would highly recommend it to others as well. Only one small negative is that in the very cold weather, it was quite a walk to the warmth of the subway.

Disliked: Alexander left no negative feedback.

Liked: The majority of the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. They helped me carry my bags all the way to the 4th floor and managed to negotiate a spare room for me. There is also an area to air your laundry if you ask the staff nicely in Chinese. The room is very clean and there are cleaning ladies out all the time. Linen is included and they provided extra blankets when asked. There's also a cute rabbit and dog in the reception area.

Disliked: After staying at some other hostels/guesthouses in Shanghai, we were surprised that drinking water is not provided. My first impression was very bad due to a lack of empathy from some members of staff. No heating during the day. It was hard to find as the path to the hostel is obscured by construction work.

Liked: good location. very clean (as i'd almost always see someone cleaning, especially the bathrooms). good bike rentals.

Disliked: although very friendly and helpful at most, the staff could be a little bit patronizing (which resulted in a direct feedback showing my displeasure - and received a lukewarm apology).
