Customer review

14 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great location for Peoples' Square and a really lively street. Important note however is that you must show your passport on arrival! We live in China and left ours at home and had to get friends to bring them over the next day but the hostel refused to even take our copies. We also saw another guy in the same situation so it may be quite common.

Sinead O'Callaghan

27 February 2010 Sinead would recommend this property

Liked: The room was a private double, ensuite. You obviously pay a bit more for this but we were not disappointed. The bathroom was brilliant, the beds very comfortable, and the tv and air-con were both working. On the down side, when we arrived they didn't seem to be expecting us which is a bit worrying. However, they got us into our specified room quickly with no problems.

22 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location 2 minutes from People's Square, very friendly staff, the rooftop bar was great for meeting other travellers, also the street it's on has plenty of good places eat. Only slight complaint was the mattresses on the beds in the mixed dorm were very thin so a little uncomfortable but the room was spotlessly clean and overall the atmosphere, the extremely helpful staff and the central location of the hostel more than made up for it. Great value!!! Would defintely stay there again.

19 February 2010

Liked: Beds were so hard. They didn't clean the room much. Some night the room was freezing cold. The door has an alarm that makes an annoying sound until you hit it enough. We had no water in our WC during one day. The Wi-Fi signal was bad in the dorms and if you went to the bar they would make you order something to stay there.The restaurant on the first floow was good. The hostel is placed in a good location.

Cara Norman

Liked: Clean, spcacious rooms, excellent location but there were no secure lockers, nowhere to meet other travellers (the bar was closed and under renovation despite the posters stating otherwise), The food and drink was very good value for money, but after speaking to others, I think there are better options available.

Liked: Great location and great looking hostel. Very clean and fantastic showers. Lockers in dorms which was great. Downside to room was the beds were like sleeping on a rock. Common room was very nice but drink prices were a bit expensive. Retaurant downstairs had great dumplings. Great value for money and would recommend to other travelers.

24 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Generally, it is more advantage than its disadvantage to stay in this hostel. The only matter for improvement is the sound proof system. You can hear some noise from next door, car horn (as near to the main road) and some construction work). If you are light sleeper, you may need to think about how this factor affect you.

Joshua Schoemmell

03 January 2010 Joshua would recommend this property

Liked: Location is the best. Within walking distance to all the main attractions in shanghai, and 5 minute walk to the subway and renmin guangchang which has lines 1 and 2. So really convenient. Rooms are really simple, shower is a little dirty, had to bring own toilet paper, not much of a hang out/reception area. Only 1 computer in the lobby and 2 upstairs but you have to get on the upstairs computers only when the bar is opened. Overall, a good value for the money if you are staying in the dorms.

24 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I arrived at 10pm and the staff were unable to find which bed I was allotted because none of them were cleaned. This didn't sit so well with me, and I promptly stayed somewhere else following nights. That being said it was still reasonable for the price, and had a cool bar on the roof.
