Good choice overall. i got a private room on the 2nd floor. Given the price (250Y), it was surprisingly large and came with an arm chair, TV, towels and reading desk. The common areas were nicely furnished and designed. It was a bit noisy from...More
We picked this hostel because it was highly recommended by a friend who had lived there for two months. It absolutely exceeded our expectations. The location is awesome (right next to People's Square Park and the metro stop), the staff is extremely helpful and nice...More
The location is ok...pretty far from the subway but taxis are cheap enough in Shanghai so we decided to do that after the first day. The building doesn't look like much from the outside but the design is quite modern and nice inside. However, it...More
my hubby & I visited some friends in china. We decided to go to shanghai for a weekend. Honestly I was hesitant to stay in a hostel, we wanted to stay in a nice hotel but our friends convinced us that it was not worth...More
If you're looking to go to Shanghai and are doing it on a budget, this is an excellent option given both its price and the location, which was very close to Renmin Square (on a small side street next to the Marriot).
In general it...More

People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and
work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.

I'm sorry, I lived there for seven months, and somehow I don't remember whether it's 11:00pm or 1:00am, but it's somewhere in that window. After hours, there's a security guard who sleeps at the desk (always one of several... More
I'm sorry, I lived there for seven months, and somehow I don't remember whether it's 11:00pm or 1:00am, but it's somewhere in that window. After hours, there's a security guard who sleeps at the desk (always one of several males), but he doesn't speak English, and the hostel staff have told me that one of the night guards (if not more than one of them) doesn't even speak particularly proper Mandarin. You can come and go at the hostel at any hour, as the guard is always there to let you in, but check-in is computerized and involves registering your passport data with the local police, so you'd want to arrive on at least that first night prior to the evening hours. Try calling them to ask what to do about late-night arrivals; most of the front desk staff speak reasonably good English. Good luck!
