Hostel world makes you think that this hostel is one of the best in Shanghai and in my opinion that's wrong. I'm currently studying for a year in Shanghai and I stayed there a bit before finding my current residence. The hostel is clean and the private room is comfy. The hostel staff are helpful but not all the time...

The front desk could not help us with some doubts we had, due the poor english. No elevator! The private room is comfortable, but the bathroom has no door. We also had some problems with noises in the first night because our room was close to the shared bathroom, so we could hear the shower, the flush... The location is...

The hostel is clean and nice, the room was just fine, except for the see-through door of the toilet, unless you don't mind seeing your partner doing his business. The hostel is not well located, it is far out from the center and not much to do in the area. Unfortunately, our overall experience was a bit disappointing. If you...

I visited in a group of 4 but stayed in different rooms due to separate bookings being made. I myself enjoyed my stay, having not much to complain about other than the almost complete lack of wifi in the entire hostel (I found one place next to the washing machine that seemed to have somewhat decent wifi at the odd...

We stayed here twice during our travels in China, first time in a double bed private with en-suite, the next time in a basic double bed with en-suite. The Basic was exactly that - very basic, very very small and no window. However the 'normal' double bed private was amazing - huge room, huge bathroom and big window. The beds...

My wife and have stayed here multiple times...each visit has been great! The staff is extremely helpful and will write what ever is required in Chinese to enable buying tickets, etc. The atmosphere is friendly and just "down to earth"...location isn't bad as it's close to the the Metro stop.

The Rock and Wood is a hostel that proves to the hilt that beauty really is only skin deep. Having surveyed the pictures and reviews here I trusted that it was good to go. In terms of appearance it is indeed a winner, BUT who works there and what is their temperament? This is probably the next level of development...

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Shanghai. It was close to metro station so although not in city centre it had very good links to the city scene. Check in was smooth and the rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. Common areas were very good at this hotel, good for relaxing in the evening, with good food...

Staying in Zhongshan Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
