No more happy hour specials but you really can’t beat the view of the Bund. Enter the hostel, take the elevator to the top floor then go up one more flight of stairs. Bar to your right.

Really enjoyed my evening at the Captains. Don't be surprised that you take the elevator in the youth hostel to the 5th floor. Few stairs and you have the million dollar view. It was chilly that evening and they provided blanket.

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
