Liked: It was a nice little retreat from Shanghai - well kept courtyard area and nice little common area

Disliked: The road to get there is grubby - not a massive problem though. Dorms look very basic - glad we booked a private double.

Liked: the girls of the staff were very helpful with everything (I cannot say same about the guys of the staff). The 6-bed dormitory was quiet, had bathroom inside and lockers.hostel has nice area to hang out. and if you like animals, there are few small size dogs and few sweet cats. and there are tasty and cheap places to eat around.

Disliked: I stayed 5 days a dormitory and they cleaned the bathroom only after first 4 days! it was super dirty! they also should put warning info on the wall about "teas hops scam" as few foreigners were tricked into it and had to pay over 800 yuans, which means there are still some travelers not aware of this scam. I also did not like that there were more chinese than foreigners at this hostel.

Liked: After walking down a dodgy looking back alley I came to the end thinking the hostel would look just as considerably bad, but luckily I was very surprised. Nicely segregated and sits inside a nice cosy backyard, equipped with a huge lounge area and home cinema. 5 minutes walk to subway and they have enough DVD's to sink a cruiseliner if you're bored one evening. Very good valued hostel for money. Rooms aren't too bad either, shower unit is standard and beds are fine for the prices standards.

Disliked: I arrived and realised that I appeared to be the only Westerner at the hostel. Although this is not the hostels fault and I might just have arrived at the wrong time, if you're also a Westerner and are looking to meet others then you may be dissapointed. You will have to sort your washing out yourself. Staff are quiet, not as friendly as I usually encountered but are helpful when you ask them for any help. In no way rude.

Liked: Staff were helpful, I was able to cancel my second night and got my money back.

Disliked: The Hostel was not in a great location. Although it is a 10 minute walk from the Subway you feel like you are in the suburbs of the city. The lounge area was dingey and not very welcoming and although they have a nice conservatory area outside it was full of people smoking. The Hostel seemed very popular with Chinese guys who were looking for jobs in the city. As a girl travelling by myself I did not enjoy it or feel particuarly secure. There was no where to meet other like minded travellers and not really many westerners staying there. The bunk beds looked like they were made for children as the ladder was very small, they were't particuarly stable and not very roomy or comfortable.

Liked: I like the backyard and shared room for hostel guests. It gives so much cozy and lovely decorated space for meeting people, chit chatting and enjoying. The atmosphere is so nice. It contributes a big amount to beautiful cross-cultual encounters and communication.

Disliked: The bathroom is a kind of dirty and not very user friendly. Nothing to hand a towel or a small board where to put your stuff while taking a shower.
