Liked: Location and price is good.(The windows were facing the busy street and noisy all night though.)

Disliked: Some staffs are not nice, rude and reluctant to help guests. Ex,The bar staff stopped smiling and started to ignore me without any response nor looking at me, after she had found I wasn't speaking to her to order drinks, , that was so straightforward rudeness and funny.

Liked: I couldn't believe the private room was so cheap, and it was on par if not better than some hotels I've stayed at. The food in the hostel restaurant was also very good. It's in a central location so it's good for sightseeing.

Disliked: It was a little hard to find, and the taxi had trouble because some of the surrounding roads are pedestrian only. Staff had trouble understanding English, but they tried.

Liked: Excellent location in the heart of Shanghai, just one block from the busiest and most exciting street in Shanghai (Nanjing Street), where you can get anything you want such as the best restaurants in town, exclusive shopping stores and many "massage" parlours if you in for the girls (100 Yuan which is about $US16 - this is a steal). The staff is extremely friendly and courteous. Free lockers in your room. They provide you with a key. So there is no need to bring a lock. The price to stay at this hostel is very good. Dorm rooms are just 10US dollars per night. Excellent shower facilities with good lighting, good hot water showers and even a blow dryer to dry your hair after you shower. What more do you want? I will recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Shanghai.

Disliked: Absolutely no dislikes whatsoever/

Liked: GREAT location, right off the major shopping street in Shanghai and surrounded by good Chinese restaurants with decent prices.

Disliked: If anything I'd say their bar service could be better and maybe better staffed, but it was still good.

Liked: I like, that the youth hostel has a very high standard. Even the 6 bed dorms have their own bath and toilet on the rooms. The beds are big enough and the rooms have an air condition. Especially I was very supriesed, how cheap it is. 55 RMB a night. Very low price for this hostel. Even the restaurant in the lobby is very good and also very cheap. There also is free intenet access, but it doesn´t work to good in the rooms. You almost must sit in the lobby to use it.

Liked: Staff spoke English well; room was clean; nice communal areas.

Disliked: Staff made mistake in my booking; had to be downgraded, but was given a free breakfast as compensation. The internet terminals there are very slow, and in Chinese; they should make them in English, as that is the language of most of their guests.

Liked: Great location walking distance to Nanjing road and the Bund and a metro just round the corner to get to the airport or other parts of Shanghai easily. Staff are friendly, efficient and speak excellent English. The double room is spacious and clean and more like a three star hotel. The en suite has a separate shower cubicle with a rain shower head and the bed is comfortable and has nice linen. Smoking is only allowed outside the hotel.

Liked: Modern, clean rooms that are more like hotel rooms. The beds were really comfortable, one of the best we've had in China! Bathroom was very nice. Staff was efficient and answered all of our questions. Good laundry machine. Great location, very close to the Bund and East Nanjing Walking Street.

Disliked: WiFi only worked downstairs, it was often pretty slow, and one night it was mysteriously "broken." The kitchen has a sterilizing cabinet for dishes and utensils, which is all fine, except we didn't really know when it had been run, so I think we were just using dirty dishes the whole time. Not very good atmosphere in the place as a whole and the staff wasn't especially friendly.
