The location is Great! At the reception they knew English and When I had to go home Earlier they refunded my Money back! But it was a good value for the money.
The furniture is a bit old and dusty.
Staff were good,
Looked a little dirty
The accommodation is easy to find and located close to the metro in a very central place of Shanghai. Flexible cancellation policy.
Although the price for the room was very cheap, the overall impression is very unwelcoming. We entered the room and the first we saw was a water spot in the corner of the ceiling. The hostel should think about its policy to give toilet paper to guests only after asking at the reception. Although it was announced, the 'hot' water is only available between 6-12 am and pm, it was not really hot. While just having 2 degrees Celsius outside, I was freezing while standing under the shower with the 'hottest' water available. The included bar unfortunately closes at 9 pm - do they assume guests go for sleeping after that? They can definitely not go to their rooms and watch movies since the Wifi is too slow. When we asked for a possibility to print some documents, the staff declined our request, while they were standing next to a printer, which was visibly filled with empty sheets of papers. We would haven even paid for the service.
GREAT location, neat little hostel café, cool vibe. Close to subway, right by people's square. Good restaurants near (loved Kebabs On The Grille). Close to all the snazzy hotels!
The location is excellent: with the Bund and the French Concession only a few minutes away on the metro. The staff were polite and helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and the price reasonable when you consider this is Shanghai and a desirable location. The bar has a convivial if rather studenty atmosphere with discreet music and instruments which Western guests often pretended to be able to play. There is a coin operated laundry so you can wash and dry your clothes. I'd describe it as adequate for a budget stay.
The bar didn't serve food of any kind. Having said this they didn't seem to mind if you brought your own. The hot water was only available at certain times of the day meaning that an off-peak shower was unavailable: although there is a spare shower you can use if you ask! However the water was often cool anyway. The air-con didn't seem to function except on cool temperatures meaning the room was somewhat chilly at times. The building is a little run-down.
