As a group of 3 friends, we stayed here on arrival to Shanghai. We had one double room and a bed in a dorm. Double room was 105, which was a nice size with a shared bathroom between 3 rooms which was clean, the showers were fine and hot.
Ignore first impressions of the hostel. I wondered what we had got ourselves into before we walked through the door to reception. But checked in, and were shown to our room. The communal area is lovely, the bar is a nice social space. Food here is good too, but beers are a bit pricey when you can get them in the shop down the road for 3 RMB. The beer in the bar was 16 RMB.
The hostel is close to everything. Exit 9 from the metro gives you a 5 min walk to the hostel. Most things are on line 2. Up the road there is a market, which is good for souvenirs and copies, if thats what you're after. East Nanjing road is good for shops, offers nice western restaurants too. The Bund is a short walk, or 2 mins on metro. We got the boat across the river at The Bund for 2 RMB per person, which was nice and gives a wider view of Shanghai skyline (which is always better at night)...
Over all we had a decent stay here.More
