Liked: Great location very convenient walk to subway station and people's square. Rooftop bar was decent. Room was clean with ax, quiet (I got the more expensive private room at $258/night).

Disliked: Maybe a few paint splatters on the floor in my washroom, not a bit deal. The sink was slow to drain but that's not a big deal either. They don't accept American Express.

Liked: Good location near People's Square, Nanjing Dong Lu, the Bund and Xintiandi. The French Concession is a short bus ride away. Lots of decent Chinese restaurants on the street. Staff was friendly and efficient. Cici on the roof bar is especially nice. I had a double room with a private bathroom, which was pretty clean (minus a few odd stains on the towels).

Disliked: The room was pretty small with the bed taking up most of the space. There was a desk but no chair. Also not much space to hang clothes. I stayed for almost 3 weeks though, so this is probably not an issue for short-term travelers.

Liked: Great location, close to everything. Good Xianese restaurant connected with the hostel. There's a rooftop bar with decent prices. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and the hostel overall was nice.

Disliked: The only real common area is the rooftop bar, which is relatively small. Bathrooms could have been cleaner.

Liked: The rooftop bar was great. Good place to meet people and a view of the city.

Disliked: Our room was a bit pokey, but it worked. Other rooms seemed a bit more spacious, so it might have been the luck of the draw.
