Liked: Atmosphere was hostel-like. We didn't go to the restaurant or spend a lot of time downstairs. The staff was helpful, not friendly, but helpful. :) Location, close to the metro. Cleanliness, sheets, bathroom, towels, everything was clean.

Disliked: No wifi in the room. Location, Going to 外滩 or 人民广场 or 田子坊 by metro took a little longer than I had expected. Cleanliness, the room did have a musky smell to it. I would say a great value for the money, just be prepared to sit on the metro for 25 minutes or so everytime you go somewhere.

Liked: I got an upgrade for the first night to a 3 bed room with own bathroom. But even the 6 bed dorm for the other 2 nights was good, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were always clean. The bar is a great place to meet other travelers! Here you can drink together or pick up a guitar and play.Location is quite near the railway Station and with the subway you can reach everything easy.

Disliked: Can't think of any dislikes.

Liked: The hostel does state in its profile on Hostelbookers that is not located near to tourist attractions, however they are so easily accessible by public transport and taxi that shouldn't put you off. The hostel is on the same Metro line as both the Shanghai Railway Station and Shanghai South Railway Station so that is a huge positive if you're taking a train. The hostel staff are very friendly and were able to point me in the direction of all the major sights. Good breakfast options, nice bar with a pool table and plenty of seats for socialising with new friends.

Disliked: Its a little far from the Bund but that is easily accessed by the Metro station located two minutes walk from the Hostel.

Liked: Hostel is in a good location and has a nice bar and lounge area and decent toilets and bathrooms on every floor.

Disliked: When I arrived the staff was not very friendly. The hostel is maybe a bit too large for my liking and the beer was expensive compared to other Chinese hostels i've stayed in.
