Customer review

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.

26 February 2010 Peter would recommend this property

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.

Anne Klaasen

17 December 2009

Liked: They are redecorating and all the rooms have a very strong paint smell that give you a headache and make your eyes hurt. I couldn't sleep of it and it make cough really badly but the staff didn't take my complaint serious. The staff couldn't offer me a similar room and told me I could speak to the manager. This morning there was no manager available and they told me I could wait until 10:00. I couldn't because I need to get my flight. I'll never go here again.

Liked: Excellent location, great Chines style, great common areas. The food on site is great and good value. On the minus side: the private rooms have shared bathrooms, the common areas are very cold in spite of attempts for heating in case you end up in the cold season.

08 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel is in a great location- easy walking or metro to eveywhere. The room was OK, but had very uncomfortable beds and we could feel the springs sticking into us. Everything was clean and the bathroom that we shared with one other room was also very clean. Also this hostel felt very secure and safe. Not sure if we would stay here again - might look for somewhere with nicer beds so we could sleep.

Liked: My stay at the Etour youth hostel was very good. I've done a decent amount of travelling and have stayed in many hostels. I was thoroughly satisfied with this one. It has a great common area and is in an excellent location. The staff was pretty friendly and helpful. The best part was that they had a few guitars for people to jam on while they were relaxing. I only planned to stay here one day, but extended it because the people I met were super fun and the atmosphere was very hospitable. - Canada Joe

22 October 2009 Eduard would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel looks really nice and has character. The facilities on offer are what you want to find in a hostel. Its somewhat difficult to find as it is tucked away in a corner of the street. Location is more then fine with a bus and metro station within walking distance.The recommended tours are a bit overpriced as they are everywhere. Travelling by yourself via the bus, train and metro is easy and cheaper.
