Hostel was great but most of the guests are Chinese. And the lobby is not so inviting that you can meet fellow travelers. Also many of the Chinese smoke in the dorms, even knowing that it is not allowed. Overall a nice place, but next time would pay a bit more and go to a traveler's hostel.

It isn’t more than advertised, you get what you pay for. The service level was good, very attentive. Close quarters, but kept tidy and clean.

In the heart of Pudong in Shanghai. Shopping and food in every direction. My room was not air conditioned so it was very uncomfortable to try and sleep. There was a leak in my bathroom that dropped when it rained and left a big splash. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly although they ...

Hele lieve mensen, alleen is dit geen hostel maar een plek waar Chinezen op een kluitje wonen op zoek naar een baan. Niemand spreekt Engels.

The only downside is that the entrance to the hostel is in an alley, which can be an inconvenience if arriving in the evening. Other than that, the staff was very helpful and the room was comfortable. I would also recommend putting in more lighting around the stairwells and hallways- that dark green ...
