Michala Gardner thinks…

"The wall paintings around the corridors were very quirky, we only stayed one night but found the staff to be friendly and helpful though we didn't really have any issues to ask them about."

Disliked: The shower/toilet was a glass structure within the bedroom and was a little weird, but on the whole it was a very pleasant stay

09 March 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The common areas seemed quite cute and nicely designed, if a bit deserted. There is a funky classroom of sorts upstairs and a very bright and open atrium. The staff was very friendly and very capable of using English. The hostel is quite easy to find, close to the metro and various bus lines, and in a nice little neighborhood.

Disliked: The room was down a long, unlit corridor (which was a bit frightening at night) and itself was dark and stifling. The photographs showed a bright, airy room with some funky furnishings, though the reality was a drab and dreary cell with three (out of five) broken lights and a window looking out on a tiny enclosed alley (with a roof). Dark, somewhat smelly, tiny, and with very dirty walls. I felt somewhat uncomfortable, though a peek into other rooms showed that others had it better than I.

Liked: Good location, next to metro.

Disliked: Staff not very helpful, needed to stay an extra night one member of staff told us there was no room, decided to ask another member of staff and they said yes. That night ewe were the only 2 people in an eight dorm room. Only one shower out of 4 working properly.

Liked: Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, Location, Fun place to meet people, Facilities and services on offer.L'hôtel est très bien placé, dans un quartier populaire, à 200m de la ligne de métro n°4, à (3+3) stations du Bund et en ligne directe (8 stations) pour l'exposition universelle. Le personnel est hyper sympath et serviable. Il y a plus d'asiatiques que d'occidentaux dans l'hôtel, ce qui permet d'y faire des rencontres. On peut manger pour pas chère dans le quartier et chez Christine on y trouve même des brioches!

Disliked: Je n'ai rencontré aucun souci particulier, tout est OK!

Liked: A cozy hostel (or a budget hotel) in great location. Some local food stalls and conivenient shop around, and a good cafe in the hostel. We stay there during Expo period and absolutely easy to find a taxi! 10 mins walk to metro station/ bus stop linking Expo entrance (suggested to take metro...nearly 1 hours way by bus...). Tips on Expo: highly recommend night entrance to Expo! fewer people = shorter quene, I abled to got into England, Italy, Australia, New Zealand pavillions within 30 mins in night time! Try your luck!

Disliked: No lift, but it only a 2-stories building. Poor drainage in bathroom and no shower curtain so you can hardly use the toilet after shower.

10 May 2010 Damian would recommend this property

Liked: conveniently located next to a metro station. it is situated in an area a bit off beaten track, so for someone who likes this, its an opportunity to see real chinese everyday life. Staff may not always know English, but they are patient to listen and always trying to explain, even waking up their well speaking friends to offer help explaining things simple and less important like doing laundry.also, this place was very quiet, so for someone who is just looking to rest and sleep, it was perfect. for someone who is looking to make friends and do parties and looking for a colorful life every night, its not a good idea.

Liked: We had a good stay at Naza. We stayed in a private double ensuite. It was quite small. The walls were quite thin and we could here noise from the lobby. We were so tired that it did not keep us awake. The directions to get to it are quite confusing on the website. It combines directions from different train stations and the airport. It is rather easy to get to though. Our stay here was satisfactory.

Liked: in Shanghai the location is always a problem. Very close to line 4 "Dalian Lu"!!!. By Taxi like 20 RMB to the Bund or Peoples Park.The place is a really quiet oasis - just perfect for Shanghai.Laundry available for 5 RMB - very nice! Rooms perfectly clean due to very busy ayis... Bathrooms all very stylish but function - m?m?-h?h?.There are loads of other places to meet fun people in Shanghai, so that's not necessary. I really liked it.If you want the Twin Ensuite, maybe Motel 168 is cheaper, but I would recomend NAZA!!!
