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.

Raquel Fernández Rodrigo

12 November 2009 Raquel would recommend this property

Liked: Very reccomendable.. you can go walking to the Bund ... and People´s Square is very close ... you can move around Shanghai easily by subway .. big and confortable bed .. air conditioning fair .. a little bit noisy ... Only be aware on the surroundings to nice chinese young people who speak perfect english inviting you to have cup of tea .. is a scam .. you will end up paying a lot for a "fake" ceremony.

Liked: friendly and helpful staff. I already stayed in other hostels (not only but also in shanghai) and didn't think it was so fun and "active" like the others, but the rooms were cool! I stayed in a double room. Large bed, clean toilet. I would recommend it to my friends

Megan Smith

29 October 2009

Liked: The hostel was filthy. Dirty throughout -- the room, the lobby, the public restroom on the rooftop bar. My room was not cleaned once in five days. NOT ONCE. It was evident it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. The floors were filthy, the linens slept in by who knows how many people, the bathroom horrendous. The maid emptied the trash and that was it; and if something had fallen out of or next to the trash, that was ignored. Unbelievable. Granted, this is the first hostel I've stayed in in China, but I think things like supplying toilet paper and cleaning the bathroom and providing fresh sheets are required. Also, there is a restaurant attached to the hostel, which makes the entire place (even up on the fourth floor) reek of grease and food, and not in a good way. Not recommended for those of you who value cleanliness.
