This was a great hostel. The beds were huge and comfortable and they didnt creak every time you got in and out or moved. The whole place had a nice feel about it and the bar is a nice place to have a drink at really reasonable prices for shanghai.

The hostel is in an excellent location just a couple of minutes walk from East Nanjing Road subway exit 1. There were good sized lockers, reasonably comfortable beds and a good ensuite shower in the 6-bed dorm we stayed in.

The location of this place made Shanghai awesome for us. Every time we left the old town we were disappointed. The place was really good for the price and being in the old town. The common room is really spacious and great that its non-smoking for a change, although we did find the cats really annoying, when you're trying not to get sick on your trip and they dive into your food. Good little courtyard rooftop table and chairs thing too, very relaxed atmosphere
