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.

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.
