Liked: Spacious dorms, friendly staff, nice communal area

Disliked: Showers were not always hot (supposed to be hot between 9pm and 1pm, but I took a shower at 9.30pm and it was lukewarm at best). Location a bit far from the centre, but metro station close by.

Liked: Is in area where the Shanghainese seem to live. There are lots of cheap eating places nearby and a very lively street with lots of street food. As a women it felt fairly safe walking here in the dark in evening( although not recommended alone after 10pm) and the metro was fairly close. Free water available.

Disliked: Really difficult to find if you forget to write the address down in Mandarin. Very noisy as right next to the metro line-

Liked: Booking train tickets through workers was painless. Near tube station. Plenty of cheap street food. 3 computers almost always free. Good wifi. Vast collection of films.

Disliked: Beds were rock hard. Suspect neighbourhood (plenty of brothels nearby). Kitchen facilities a joke. Hot showers only available certain times. Gym a joke, just a bench press and exercise bike.

21 December 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is 3 minutes walk from Caoyang Rd Metro St. Exit from the exit where McDonald's is, cross to where a cart selling some Taiwanese food and that meant that you are and keeping to the right. Cross road over to the Great Wall Huge Plaza. Walk along the path with the Plaza on your right. At the end of the path you will see the hostel on your left. Cross the road where there should be carts or at night a food seller. The hostel steel gate would be on your left.

Disliked: The neighbourhood is not great or clean but put it down to seeing how many Shanghainese really live. The Chinese Muslim stall on the way to the metro station (under the metro line) is quite good for noodles.

29 June 2010

Liked: friendly staff

Disliked: for the same price you can get a much better hostel in shanghai. -in the double room for instance, there were no tv, no towels, no tea maker (all of those are standards in ALL hostel of the same price category) - safety is poor you only get a key to lock the door (not the typical magnetic card) - and the WORST: my room was like 5m away from the subway line!!! i let you imagine the noise from 6am... and you don't even get the advantage of having the station right in front of the hotel, no no it's like 10minutes walk really AVOID this hotel, I've been in 5 other different in Shanghai, all 1000 times better
