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.
