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.

Reasonably good location, 2 minutes from metro, plenty of restaurants nearby. 10-15 minutes walk from Nanjing Road.
The room was clean, modern and comfortable. The hostel was located close to a major central metro station. The staff was also really helpful.

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.
The location is amazing, just a short walk to get to the metro, Nanjing rd. and not too far to walk to the Bund.

This place is very central in Shanghai. Good restaurants are very close. They have a pool table and they sell beer in the bar. There are many beds and easy to longer the stay.

We booked the basic twin room and were amazed how spacious, comfortable, clean and beautiful it was. The room looked more like a hotel than a hostel room. The rain shower was incredible. We also loved the comfortable beds and how quiet the room was. If you want a good nights sleep I can defs recommend this place. The downstairs lounge area is incredibly cosy and very well furnished. We couldn't help but notice the beautiful furniture, overall design and lighting. Definitely recommend this hostel - its such good value for the money!
It´s a great chillout area, nice und friendly people´s there. it´s not far to the metrostration!

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
It's CHEAP!!! And it's near the Renminguangchang station so you can get anywhere easily by subway.

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.
It is great that rooms have no windows at all so that it is quiet. Very central location.

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.
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.
