Liked: The place is very nice and the location can't be beat!

Disliked: I have stayed here before and I don't remember it being so self-service (make your own bed etc.) I can accept that if it will keep prices down.

Liked: The location is awesome, 5 mins walk to the subway station People's Square. There is actually a 4-people dorm.If you are lucky when you arrive, you might change to the 4-dorm. The cafe downstairs is very comfy, which also serves good food in a reasonable price. I would definitely stay there again when i go back to Shanghai!

Disliked: It would be nicer that the kitchen is more well facilitated .

Liked: excellent common space/bar which facilitates an easy environment to meet other travellers, learn about the areas people have been to and conspire about activities

Disliked: the showers are small individual cubicles leading onto the main hall, this means that whilst getting changed you have to gymnastically manoeuvre your body in order to avoid having your clothes saturated from the shower floor and walls
