Liked: This hostel has very friendly, helpful staff. The dishes at the cafe are all very tasty (I like the fried egg and tomato and the Italian countryside sandwiches). The dorm beds are comfortable, and all have an individual reading light and shelf.

Disliked: No outside food is allowed into the lounge area. The lighting (at night) in the lounge area and rooms needs work.

Liked: The hostel itself is beautifully designed and very comfortable. The downstairs communal area is comfortable and stylish. The room was comfortable

Disliked: The hostel only accepted cash and this was not clearly listed on Hostelbookers. Only a tiny thing - the showers are not very hot and the lighting in the room is very dim. Staff took ages to complete the simplest of tasks...

Liked: Nice atmosphere and near the subway

Disliked: Our food was SO slow - we were waiting for over 45 minutes two days in a row just for eggs and the eating area wasn't even crowded. A Lot of other people missed breakfast because they couldn't wait before their flight. The hostel should seriously get someone else in the kitchen.

Liked: Le personnel a le sourire, le decor est tres bien, des prises electriques pres de chaques tables, jolies petits poissons rouge, confortable, eau chaude dans la douche, belle musique. Un hotel qui apaise.

Disliked: Le beaucoup trop d'espace dans la salle principale empeche les gens comme moi a chercher le contact et dialogue avec les autres voyageurs, on fini facilement a rester comme tout le monde dans sa bulle. Manque un peu d'eclairage exterieur et des lampes plus forte pour lire.

Liked: Very nice common area, inexpensive an good food and drinks, nice bright and airy rooms (twin was really great, dorm was OK). Enough showers, good breakfast.

Disliked: Common toilet areas could be cleaned slightly more often, but it was still well above average for a youth hostel! If you can, book a twin room, the bathrooms there are gorgeous.

Liked: The hostel is located in a beautiful and very lively neighbourhood. There are two metro stations nearby, from which you can quickly get to famous places like The Bund, People Square, Jingan Temple, etc. If you like walking, you can reach those places in less than two hours. The hostel is very clean, safe and well managed. The staff was very helpful and kind, and they speak very good English. I also tried to practice my yet poor Chinese with the non-English speaking staff, and they were also very nice.

Disliked: The wifi network sometimes didn't work very well, maybe due to overload.

Liked: The design of the building is really modern and comfortable at the same time. It's a great place to relax and sit [on their really comfortable couches] and meet other travelers. The staff are all helpful and give you a smile when you pass by. They also have three computers next to the reception which have facebook on them to keep in touch with friends!

Disliked: The location is okay but away from a lot of the tourist attractions. There are two nearby subway stations near the hostel though to get you to all the main sightseeing places. Apart from that, the internet often disconnects itself and in the rooms the wifi can be really slow.
