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.

Liked: Great location near east nanjing rd and the bund! We had the spacious 6 bed dorm to ourselves three out of four nights. Good bathing facilities.

Disliked: Could have been cleaner on the floors and in the bathroom, but not too bad - very clean sheets and a nice room. Could have used night lamps.

Liked: Located in perfect area for sightseeing. Very walkable area to Bund, People's Square and pedestrian street mall. Good inexpensive restaurants nearby. Subway a short walk away. Friendly English speaking front desk staff. Very clean and quiet. I had a private room but dorm beds available. Very high value for money spent.

Disliked: The room was a bit chilly, ( was there in November), with no heat, only a/c. However, showers were hot, and a lovely warm duvet was on bed.

19 October 2013 Royce would recommend this property

Liked: The Baggage Room and the location was the best part about this hotel. Really good value when compared to other options in commercial area. Very close by to NanJing Road East station, which makes traveling a breeze.

Disliked: The beds were rather hard and the pillows were flattened. There is the constant smell from the drain, but I'm told this is due to Shanghai's sewage rather than a fault of the hostel.
