    the lobby's ambience is great and cosy. the location is just too convenient to the subway and the attractive spots. affordable in price.

    the shower rooms should be renovated and improve. the floor are wet and flooded always. Smelly, but not sure where is the smell from. The receptionists are not really helpful and friendly. My room is messy (405), full with stuff which i don't know where or whom it belong to.

    Fabulous

    I like that it was a budget friendly hotel and staff could speak English. They were very helpful with questions I asked. It is also the perfect spot to visit the bund or get on the subway for other tourist destinations. I also like the balcony bar over looking the bund and the price of the drinks. Would definitily stay there again. :-)

    Lift only goes to fifth floor. I was on sixth with a heavy bag.

    Exceptional

    Excellent location next to the Bund. Probably the nicest beds/dorm rooms I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in hostels all around Asia/Europe. The bedding was very comfy and warm. However, the bathroom showers could use some work (pretty run down looking), the water was hot though, so that's probably more important. Would definitely stay again. Check out the view from the rooftop bar too, pretty amazing. 3-4 blocks from the East Nanjing street, so good location but still a bit of a walk. Right next to a 7-11 type store so that came in handy too. Have fun, this is a great place!

    The location is very good

    A lot of people smoke inside the hostel, even inside my room a guest was smoking everyday. The common area is not confortable if you want to read a book or use your computer. There is a bar in the lobby but you need to buy something if you want to stay there if not you can only use one of the two single couchs that are in the lobby (for the whole hostel). The wi-fi service is not good.

    Very good

    The location was really good. Next to the Bund and walking distance from People's Square. They had free computers with internet to use.

    The front desk was soo unhelpful. After my reservation expired, I asked at the desk the next morning if I could stay another night. They said no, they were full. I asked if I could check back later in case there were cancellations but they said no. Then I met some other people staying there. They were told the same thing but said to go back to Booked.net and sure enuogh I was able to book my same bed for that night, right after the front desk had said no. And they will not let you store luggage, in spite of what the sign at the front desk says.

    Very good

    The location of this hostel is very near to the tourist attraction spots such the waterfront and shoping areas.

    Eventhough we arrived early in the morning at the hostel, we can check in immediately into the room due room availability. The staff manned at the counter are polite and helpful.

    The location is awesome - right by The Bund. The showers were hot and the bunks were comfortable. Serious value for money but nothing flash!

    The room itself was clean and comfortable. Location was good.

    The bathrooms were very old and rundown.

    Fabulous

    I think it is well worth the money that you pay. It was very nice for the three days that I was there. It is a very affordable, cheap option in a good location.

    I did not like that the bathrooms were not very clean and that the showers were practically flooded.

    Cheap hostel by the Bund, okay for what it is. If you just want to be somewhere central for sightseeing this place is alright. We had a twin room and it was a good base for exploring the Bund, East Nanjing main shopping road, and the big towers across the river.

    Room was dirty, shower room stank the whole time (awful smells coming from the sink), and the bar on the top floor was very expensive (albeit with amazing views over the river). They even charged us 100rmb each just to go in there on Chinese New Year's Eve - which was pretty much the only reason we had chosen this hotel. Here's the thing - you can go to this part of town and do/see everything in an afternoon, there's really no point in staying there. Stay somewhere in the French Concession area - much prettier, more cool bars and clubs. Having said that, I didn't think much of Shanghai overall as a sightseeing city :(

    Staff unhelpful, bed was unmade with previous person's rubbish in it, put me in male dorm (I'm female!), bar had some crazy rule about minimum order at some stage even though it was empty and we had given them a good bit of business in the time we were there

    Fabulous

    great location, nearly you can find the famous riverside, shops, clubs, the Nanjing Road. the subway station Nanj.Rd is about 12 minutes by walk. Staff speaking english. A lot of maps at the reception. Good price, nice marine design. there is a bar on the top floor. Rooms are ok, simple and with towels-shampoo and even tooth brush (I used a single room). If you imagine what is China you will not be shocked by general simplicity of design etc. If I come back to Shanghai it's quite possible that I will book this hostel.

    In China they allways ask for a deposit for the key, it's ok (100Y cash, they 'll give you it the day of check-out). In the winter rooms are a bit cold but it's a problem of all hostels and not only oriental.
