Liked: I had a private double room with ensuite and it was exactly what I needed having shared a room for the previous month. It was clean, tidy, spacious, and the shower had clean towels and a shower with good pressure. Would definitely recommend.

Disliked: Only small thing was that occasionally the bathroom had a strange sewage smell about it that must come up through the vents in the floor but it didn't really linger and wasn't all that bad. Definitely a very small problem that barely registered.

Liked: Location is brilliant for everything Nanjing/Bund also the subway/metro is so easy to get anywhere around town (English on ticket machines). Room was quiet and warm with AC going :D brilliant stay. Private room shower was fantastic and new looking!

Disliked: Little lift stops at 11pm but stairs are always open. Oh pillows were well hard! But apart from that - great!

Liked: The room is very spacious, despite the fact that we had an extra bed and 3 suitcases in the room (we booked a family room for 3), we could still walk in the room comfortably. Water pressure and temperature is absolutely fantastic. I love the bathroom. Overall, very clean and beds are comfortable. Great location it is located near the pedestrian street with shopping malls and plenty of shops, and only 3 mins walk to the nearest subway station (Nanjing East Road). You could also walk, about 25 minutes, to The Bund. We get to meet great people who stay there too! There are kitchen too to cook and others facilities although we didn't use much (too much of activities, too little time). Definitely value for money and you get discount too if you are a YHA member. Highly recommend this place.

Liked: Great location, in walking distance of both People's Square and the Bund and also super close to a metro station. Very clean rooms and bathrooms, dorms are simple but sufficient, and the kitchen/laundry/other living facilities are excellent.

Disliked: Perhaps not the best choice for lone travellers looking to meet other people, lacking a backpacker vibe.

Liked: Stayed in a double ensuite and loved it. The room was very large and clean. The location of the hostel could not be better. You are walking distance from the bund, nanjing road, and the subway.

Disliked: Its not the best place to meet other travellers as the common rooms were usually empty when I was there.

Liked: The location is really ideal, super close to a major subway line, and near many restaurants and stores both local and global. Also their cleaning staff is superb. They seem to clean twice a day, once early in the morning before you even awake.

Disliked: Slow Internet, super cold common areas.

Liked: It is very accessible to 'should' visits in Shanghai. The staff is very accomodating and would surely be missed. From Pudong Airport: 1. Take line 10 going to East Nanjing.. you will be asked to change coach.. but still you have to go down at East Nanjing.. from east nanjing station.. it's just a 3-5 minute walk to Mingtown .. 2. If you take a cab.. just ask the taxi driver to take you at Nanjing.. that's the closest landmark that they know.. it's around 150-250 RMB.. if you take the airport taxi.. they will charge you 450 RMB..

Disliked: Internet connection does not work sometimes. Behind the hostel is the market which one should be careful when making transactions.

Liked: Such excellent location! Right off Nanjing Rd, 5 min from the subway, you can get anywhere from here! Our rooms were very nice, there's a fun little mini night-market right on the street corner with some really good food. the staf was very helpful and the internet worked great. Stay here!!

Disliked: The directions to get to the hostel were a little off. If you get off the subway at the Nanjing east station and go out exit no 1 you turn right onto nanjing rd and then at the first street you see you go right again (not left) and then the first street is tianjing, and that's where you go left and the hostel is on the right side of the street.
