Liked: Good location. That's about it.

Disliked: Wifi cut out every now and then in my room. Bad service. Was like talking to a brick wall. While I was waiting for service a girl asked them how to get to the bund and the lady at the front counter told her to look it up on the Internet. Similarly I asked them if I could extend my stay, each time they told me to come back the next day to ask (for some unknown reason they couldn't help me look this up). I ended up going to a different hostel. There is also a lack of atmosphere compared to a lot of other hostels I stayed at. While the communal area/bar was nice but everyone kept to themselves. Next door to the room I was staying at was actually a family who had a baby and I was often woken up by the sound of baby crying coming through paper thin walls. Surprised me that a backpackers hostel had just general Chinese families staying at.

Liked: 위치가 환상입니다. 상해 가장 중심에 있어서 어디를 가든편합니다. 조금만 걸으면 바로 난징동루가 펼쳐집니다

Disliked: 트윈룸에 묵었는데 건물이 오래되서 그런지 퀘퀘한 냄새가심하게 났습니다. 에어컨을 켜도 해결되지 않았고 냄새가 심해서 힘들었습니다. 알러지가 있는 분은 아마 콧물흘리는것은 각오해야 할 것입니다.

Liked: The comon area is quite nice. Big, with sofas, slow internet, billar, spensive bar and restaurant ...The location is perfect just a few steps from People Square's subway station. This is their only value.But the rooms and the shared bathrooms are hawful. All smells mold and the walls and the bed are really dirty.

Disliked: The rooms are not worth for the money that you pay. They don't clean the room during our stay at all. I could even have died in this room and they didn't realized till one week later.

Liked: Good location, house.전철역 접근성이 좋고 중국 가옥의 분위기를 느낄 수 있다.호스텔 안의 카페 음식과 음료는 가격대비 좋다.전반적으로 깨끗한 편이다.

Disliked: 숙박했던 101호는 골목길과 인접해 있어 창문을 열 수 없고 커텐을 치고 있어야 했고 방의 조명이 어두운 편. 햇빛이 잘 들지 않아 방안이 눅눅하다. 옆방 102호와 샤워,화장실의 나눠 사용하는데 배수가 아주 잘 되지 않아 물냄새가 나고 수압이 조금 낮다.

Liked: This is what I consider a 5 star hostel...beautiful facilities and amazing value given the prime location. The double rooms are a good deal and well furnished and the bathrooms are shared with only 1-2 other rooms. The neighborhood is perfectly convenient right off prestigious E Nanjing Road and accessible to everywhere. It is located in a little atmospheric local neighborhood just behind the big modern buildings where you can find super cheap street food and massages. There are both expensive and cheap malls around the corner where you can access fast food (and expensive) restaurants.

Disliked: Bathrooms might be slightly smelly given that you're supposed to leave toilet paper in the bins but they were regularly cleaned.

Liked: Good spot near People's Park, big dorms, lovely bar area.

Disliked: Just a small one- shower facilities were very spread out, shower near my room was out of hot water (but there was a reminder in the to check the water heater before you got in so points for that) - and the next closest showers were on the other side of the courtyard, not a fun run in the rain. There also seemed to be a lot of people living in the hostel long term.
