Liked: within the 5 ast months everything has been renovated. Prices are higher (many thanks to the Expo...) but this hostel is now a "high end hostel", with a bar, restaurant with good western food, snooker...

Customer review

28 April 2010

Liked: I USED to love this place. Had great character, fun place to meet people, awesome location. Now, only the location is great. They've upgraded the interior bar/restaurant area and added import Belgian brews, but i find now lacks the funky charm of before.TAKE NOTE: Prices are going WAY up as of Apr 29 2010. Not a modest increase as one could tolerate, but the cheapest dorm from RMB55 to 80, cheapest private room from 180 to 249! That's robbery, as there's been no increase or improvement in service.If u do stay here, definitely don't eat here! The kitchen staff is dysfunctional. My friend ordered a British breakfast this morning. The waitress asked 'Fried or scrambled?' My friend said 'Fried.' Then she asked 'Fried on one side or two?' My friend said 'One'. A minute later the waitress came back and said 'We don't have fried on one side; fry on two ok?' I asked 'Then why did you ask me one side or two?' She said 'Well, we can try one side but it might not come out good.' Ridiculous. Also, they demand pre-payment for food! I guess that says it all.

Liked: The laundry services need to be improved. There is only one working washer and drier. However to dry your clothes they need to be done two or three times in the drier, which takes 3-4.5hours! They have dvd players, but they are rarely available. Otherwise, it was a nice hostel.

18 April 2010

Liked: i booked it via you as i did the one in Xian (which was really nice and enjoyable) by the rating as well as "good price", which was later changed (see comment under 2). it was "again" after chnaging in ownership recommended by lonely planet; but to me it held not what i expected, especially after the really enjoyable one in Xian (i repeat myself).. but after a long night's journey on the train, i took it afterall, otherwise i think i would have changed, as the "sharing bath/toilet"-business anoyed me. and the friendliness i missed later.

02 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The welcome from the staff at the front desk was frosty, formal and and unwelcoming. It was as if the staff weren't happy working there and took out their resentment on the cleints staying there ! As a result, all the other advantages of staying there such as a good location (being a stone's throw from epople's Sq. the heart of Shanghai)internet access (that had connection trouble and outside so not a great place during the winter it has to be said), a cosy bar (good for meeting fellow travellers!) and safe and secure rooms which were warm and cosy except for one but all clean were overshadowed by the frosty welcome.

Liked: A very nice hostel. The location is excellent and the staff are very friendly. Our room was clean and the shared bathroom was fine. Although the bar was being rennovated when we were there, it looked like it would be a great place for a beer.
