Liked: Really lovely atmosphere. Carp pond outside, really airy, and large lounge area. Good breakfast, free computers. Lots of friendly pets (big dog, small dog with broken leg, giant rabbit, cat to name a few...)Staff were very helpfulShower curtain in shower meant whole bathroom didn't get flooded. Other hostels take note!

Disliked: Nothing! Little bit out of town, but near metro

Liked: This is the best out of four hostels I've stayed at on this China trip so far, and the closest to the standards travelers at well-rated European hostels will have become accustomed to. It's clean, full featured, and the locker setup gives each guest enough storage for valuables. The beds are long enough, even for a tall visitor, the staff is nice, and the hostel's restaurant is quite good.

Disliked: The "no outside food" policy is a drag. The hostel still has a few things that will be familiar annoyances to travelers in China: Slow, censored internet, and plumbing that requires you to throw your toilet paper into a trash bin. Oh, and watch out for those sneaky laundry machines. Have all your coins ready, 'cause after 30 seconds the credit resets to 0 if you haven't put it all in. But really, this is the best hostel I've encountered in China yet.

Liked: A very new hostel that is super clean. It is like an oasis in Shanghai. Although its a little further out its very near the metro so you get anywhere quick enough. It has a great big lounge area with food and sei k at a reasonable price. We would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: The staff on reception were unfriendly and we felt like an inconvenience when we asked questions. This was a shame as the hostel itself is great and this put a bit of a damper on the stay.

Liked: It was close to the metro, people there were often friendly.

Disliked: Even though the kitchen only serves food during certains times, you're not allowed to eat outside food around there. They'll make you move to the reception area. Our air conditionner didn't work and was leaking water. When we complained, their way of fixing it was to come in repeatedly late at night and turn on the lights to wipe a towel on the floor. There are no dorm rooms lower than the 3rd floor, so it's hard if you have heavy luggage.
