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.

Liked: Very good location. Right next to people's park & shanghai museum and short walk to Nanjing road which is the main street to the Bund. Decent bar, little bit pricey, and staff were quite nice. Overall pretty good

Disliked: I stayed here in winter and the rooms were quite cold, you also had to walk outside in a cold corridor to get to the bathrooms which were a little on the dirty side

Liked: The staff are so friendly and helpful, they really went out of their way to assist. The bar has a lot of atmosphere, and is a really nice place to hang out, with good quality, reasonably priced food. The rooms are nice, the beds don't creak too much and you get a nice big locker. The location is unbeatable, right in the heart of the city. I stepped out of my room every morning to the Shanghai skyline, perfect. One of the best Chinese hostels I stayed in.

Disliked: The showers are a bit dingy, but seem reasonably clean.

Liked: The location is excellent. The bund is in walking distance. The wifi in the rooms is strong and the showers are very good.

Disliked: The walls in our room were mouldy and there were massive cockroaches about. It says the hostel will help you with travel arrangements but the girl at the desk said they don't and we had to book train tickets at an office on Nanjing road.
