I spent three very pleasant days at this youth hostel. This was the last place I stayed at during my stay in China, and having quite a bit of work to do I spent most of my three days around the hostel café/bar. The bar area is set in the out on two levels, with glass walls letting lots of light in, large sofas and a pond full of fish running alongside it, perennially stalked (unsuccessfully) by a rather fat grey cat. The courtyard is very green due to the small but leafy tree and the plants intertwining with the railings of the balcony. Until you look up and see the giant Tomorrow Square building and several other skyscrapers, it is very easy to forget that you are in the very centre of Shanghai.
The staff were all friendly and spoke very good English, and were very helpful in letting me store my huge suitcase securely in their office rather than my room. The bed was fine, bathroom facilities likewise. As other reviewers have pointed out, the location is very central and the price for the quality of the place is really impressive. I would really recommend it.
