Customer review

21 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The rooms are furnished simply but functionally. The place is all but posh, but has everything you need. All in all it is pricy and the staff is not so over-bureaucratic as has been exprerienced in other places (you ask for a LAN-cable - thay give it to you without deposit or receit). This establishes an atmosphere of trust which is quite nice. The situation of the hostel is a bit far from the station and the entrance really is "hidden" to a certain degree, but if you find it, you are welcomed by beautifull flowers.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Customer review

10 March 2010

Liked: We only stayed here one night out of the five we had booked. When we arrived the bed had not been changed in our private room. The shower was unacceptably bad compared to other hostels in China.They dont really have a kitchen - just a microwave and a rice cooker and you will need to bring your own cutlery and plates so cooking for yourself isn't really an option. They do offer quite nice big breakfasts for 20Y though. It is located (just about)in the pudong, which means travelling in to the centre and back everyday.We moved to a hostel near E.Nanjing road which was by far the best decision - much closer to everything and nicer for a minimal price differnence. It was also quite cold but we were staying in the middle of winter. I think staying there in the summer would be much better as they have a nice bar, a pool table, free interenet and nice lounges. It is all open air so will be lovely in the summer time.The staff were very very friendly and always happy to help.
