Liked: Great common area, lots of amenities nearby, close to metro line and conveniently located. Good eats around.

Disliked: Mosquitoes at night in common space because the layout is very open, but other travellers seemed to not mind!

Liked: It was clean, the staff friendly and there was always something happening in the bar/dining area downstairs. It's nbt located so close to the centre, but there are some good, cheap places to eat breakfast & dinner nearby (including xiao long bao!).

Disliked: I ended sharing a room with a few people who'd been there for quite a while, including one who cursed loudly when he woke up late for work (on a Sunday morning), so my room seem to have been somewhat invaded by their belongings. Apart from that, I was only at the hostel for brief moments, but experienced only helpful staff and a friendly atmosphere.

Liked: it was very clean. They had a proxy server so we could get on Facebook (otherwise banned in China).

Disliked: Total lack of a social atmosphere. No one was really meeting anyone new. Everyone just kept to themselves - usually glued to a computer screen while soaking up the public WiFi. The hostel did not try to hold any events to get people together.
