Liked: Good location not far from Bund, French concession area, Xintiandi, Nanjing Rd, People Square... Nice rooftop lounge area and nice staff. Also laundry service at good price.

Disliked: As most chinese hostels: toilet not working (this was even worse than most places not sucking almost anything at all), a little smelly old room and strange smell to humidity at the corridors of the floor I was staying.

Liked: Este hostel me ha fascinado, de los 4 hostel que visité en China, Este ha sido el mejor por la ubicación, limpieza, servicios.Queda a pocos minutos a pie de la famos calle comercial Nanjing lu, también se puede ir caminando a Peoplés Square, Schanghai Museum y al Bund. Por la calle del hotel hay pequeños restauranres y salas de masajes.El hostel tiene su propio restaurante, muy bueno! y en la 5 planta hay una cafetería-bar donde puedes conocer gente, atomar cerveza y.....conectarte a Facebook!!!!

Disliked: Todo perfecto!

Liked: Location's pretty central, though it's only really on line 8, which is not super convenient, and the 2 is pretty far. Restaurant downstairs is good.

Disliked: Staff ranged from not-super-friendly to just plain rude. Bed was board-hard, even by China standards. I've stayed here in the past and found the dorms horrid but private rooms quite nice, but the standard for the latter has dropped. Peeling paint, not-actually-cleaned undersides (as of the bed and faucet), and one more thing: cockroaches. I killed two.

Liked: The location is absolutely perfect, with everything in walking distance and the metro just around the corner.

Disliked: The rooms towards the yard smell a little from the dumpsters downstairs if you keep the window open. but theres nothing the hostel can do about it i think.
