Liked: Good Location, wifi works, it's one station away from the center of Shanghai and you don't hear the cars

Disliked: The walls are very thin, it seams like you are sleeping with an open door, you hear every word from outside,

Liked: It was easy to find from the station. And the staffs in this property were very friendly.

Disliked: I was almost satisfied with this property.But, near the property, there was a grocery market. And that market was full of waste water and odor. So when I arrived at this property, i was unsatisfied with that situation.

City break

Liked: Stayed in double room - fantastically large, everything works nicely. Location is the most perfect place to experience Shanghai, with lots of authentic streets with real street food, Bund and People's Square nearby. Also nice decor in the hostel. Cheap cafe on the premises and wifi everywhere. Great people to chat with.

Disliked: The hostel could use some renovation and there's a bad smell in the corridors. No smell in the rooms though. No window in the double room. Noise at night from the young people partying. I would stay again anyway.

Liked: It is great that rooms have no windows at all so that it is quiet. Very central location.

Disliked: The place is not clean. I stayed there for a week and only the trashbin in our room was emptied but it was neither swept nor mopped once. On top of the cupboards were big layers of dust. The showers are really dirty in the evening and seem not to get cleaned during the day.
