I booked single budget room and it's comfortable for me with such reasonable price (considering that I'm not tall). It even provides you towel and tootbrush. The staff are very kind friendly and they try their best to help the guests.

The hostel was really clean, I loved the shower (strong water pressure and hot!). The staff was very friendly and helped us with all our questions. The bar in the 5th floor is really nice (probably in summer even better!). Downstaires there is a good restaurant if you are tired from the day. The wifi ist good and stable. Very good location, you can walk to most of the imported spots or take the nearby subway....Just loved it!

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed at over my travels to Europe, Asia and Central America. I traveled to Shanghai for work/travel and the staff went over and above to help. The staff is extremely kind and willing to help with anything. They have a bar with cheap beer, a pool table, as well as a good central room to meet others for solo travelers like myself. Thanks a ton to Clara, Shirley and Liu (sorry for what I am sure is botched spelling). You guys made this trip a blast. Wish you all the best! No doubt I'll stay at this hostel again.

Convenience Location, good price Shanghai style house and lovely garden. Almost facilities are for rent. 55위앤의 6인 도미토리 묵엇는데,,, 위치. 가격. 옛 상해 건물 디자인 및 카페 라운지 모두 만족스러움. 잠만 자기엔 문제없는 듯. 데스크에 락커열쇠, 수건, 슬리퍼 등 렌트하여 사용할 수 잇음. 오래된건물이니 최근 수도꼭지와 세면대 및 변기 새것으로 교체된듯함. 샤워부스는 노후하나 사용에 문제없음. 체크인때 침대 및 이불 시트를 받주며, 직접 씌우고 체크아웃때 다시 벗겨 반납함. 1-2분거리 편의점과 과일가게가 잇어 필요한것 대부분 살 수 있음. 주변에 상점 쇼핑몰 많음. 인민광장역에서 걸어서4-5분

Stayed in double room - fantastically large, everything works nicely. Location is the most perfect place to experience Shanghai, with lots of authentic streets with real street food, Bund and People's Square nearby. Also nice decor in the hostel. Cheap cafe on the premises and wifi everywhere. Great people to chat with.

The reception staff is not really friendly. Part of the hostel is under refurnish and there is smell of solvent everywhere. They trying to charge you up to 3% extra money if you pay with debit or credit card because of the bank commission, that's ridiculous... Just trying to get extra% profit Around the hostel there are several hotels where you can book a better room for a lower price and no problem to pay by cards
