Liked: Great location, big beds with own socket and lamp, clean toilets, sturdy lockers, wifi everywhere.

Disliked: Almost entirely Chinese residents (no atmosphere, and they have weird sleeping patterns), complicated wifi codes at first (just ask the residents!).

Liked: Good value, good location just a few minutes walk from the Bund (nicely lit up at night). Friendly staff. No problem storing luggage after checkout. They even give everyone a mini lock and key for the lockers in the room.

Disliked: I had problems getting on the wi-fi. I was given the password to connect to the network, but then asked for a some sort of verification code to get on the internet. Nothing I tried worked, but a Chinese guy staying in the same room was able to get it to work somehow.

Liked: Very friendly stuff, special thanks to Ethan and Crystal! Amazing and helpful! Well organized and clean hostel. Location is perfect, just next to the Bund, easy to reach the downtown or metro. They upgraded me to a better room for free, thanks again for that! I guess if you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Shanghai it should be your choice!

Disliked: well, everything was great, there was a place with tables to use internet and eat something, but having a nice living room, where guests good hang out would be nice;)

Liked: Kind staff at reception

Disliked: Towels not clean (funny smell); cigarete smell in the room; dirty carpet at corridors; small reception; poor common space (nothing to do with the International Youth Hostel atmosphere); it seems a Chinese hostel rather than an International Youth Hostel (compared to others around China).

Liked: Pluses:- only a 5min walk to Bund.Only 8min walk to nearest Metro station East Nanjing Road exit(6).Very helpful Staff.Thanks go to Ms Ma,who helped me by allowing me to use her Mobile to make an internal call within China."Thanks Ms Ma.***Special thanks to Jimi***.He helped with the problem internet in the Hostel.Jimi is very "helpful & imformative", he also speaks"excellent English" which is hard to find in China.So he can help translate Chinese into English, & vice versa.So this is a real bonus.Also the same can be said of Ms Ma.Both are"valuable Assets to the running of the Reception at the Dock Bund Hostel.They will do their very best to "assist", & help you get the "best" out of Shanghai, & China. A Heartfelt Thanks to you Both."Robert(UK).In conclusion.The single Rooms,of which i stayed are very basic,Bed & tv small Bed side cabinet & aircon.Seperate Toilets & Showers, very clean & tidy.If you just want somewhere to sleep,with clean Showers & toilets,then give it a try.Also there is a very good family run Restaurant less than a 5min walk.Only 8 Tables inside,but lovely & cheap priced Food.Go left out of Hostel, & first left,cross street & aapprox 500Mtrs Green awning sign with picture of a Mosque on signage.Sorry don't know the name.But give it a try.You won't find better value or priced food, for around 15-20 Yuan.Thats my Tip!!. "Robert"(UK)

Disliked: Internet is "slow" & "connection"cables etc to pc computer Equipment come loose & disconnect the line.Also to complex with various pop-ups appearing in Chinese before you even connect to the internet.Then also keyboard Language always in some other language, other than English which is obviously a problem if your English speaking.Single Room problems,There is no where to Hang up your Clothes,even if you Travel light as a Backpacker.Could do with some Coat Hooks, & Hangers in the Rooms.
