Youth hostels don't come much more charming than this one. Even the lobby (which doubles up as a chic wi-fi cafe), with its high ceilings and brightly painted walls, is a joy to be in. But it's the rooms, all slightly different, that really stand out. Although on the small side, all are beautifully decorated with cosy furniture, flower-patterned wallpaper and gathered-up curtains, and all come with wall-mounted flat-screen TV and a little bathroom.

Location Information

The Bund of Shanghai: The Bund is one of the most recognizable architectural symbols of Shanghai. "Bund" derives from an Anglo-Indian word for an embankment along a muddy waterfront and that is what it was in the beginning when the first British company opened an office there in 1846.

Nanjing Road is one of the most important commercial and tourist streets in Shanghai, which stretches from the bund to Yanan Xilu. It is a good place to learn the history and culture of Shanghai.

Yuyuan Garden is located in the center of Shanghai's Old City, not far from the Bund. With a total area of less than 5 acres, it has more than 40 attractions in the inner and outer gardens, both built in the Ming Dynasty classical style.
